Giving is Awesome! {Livingston County Michigan Family Photographer}

You know someone. You know someone who’s experienced a tragedy, is struggling to stay afloat, is raising kids while holding down more than one job, or is volunteering selflessly despite extenuating personal circumstances.

You know someone who can’t afford custom photography, but who would cherish it this holiday season.

You know someone who deserves a year-round reminder of their family’s spirit, love, and beauty.

You know someone. I guarantee it.

I want to know who they are, and I want to give them the chance to experience complimentary custom photography — a photo session and print credit worth $250, to be exact. Give a deserving family this gift that will last a lifetime.

Oh, and the best part? The person who nominates the winner receives a free session and a $50 print credit. What better reason to show some love could there possibly be, people?

The rules:
* You cannot nominate yourself, and the person nominated must sincerely be incapable of purchasing my services. (Being unable to make mortgage payments for a two-million-dollar-vacation-home in Hawai'i does not qualify as sincere financial need.)
* The nominee must reside within 35 miles of Howell, Michigan or Livingston County. Tell me who you know, what they’re experiencing, and why they deserve my artwork. Please include a way to contact both your nominee and yourself as well.
* You must e-mail me the full story by December 18th, 2009.  Send to

The winner will be announced on Christmas Eve — get nominating! I can’t wait to read all of your entries!  Open your heart to someone this holiday season — and thanks for giving me the opportunity to open mine.

  1. I love that you're doing this. Our photographer does all of our stuff for us as a gift as well because of our story, and I can just tell you how much it means for us to have beautiful photos of our very difficult-to-photograph family in a location that's easy for us to manage. I don't live anywhere near you, but I would look to your local Children's Hospital and hope that someone there will treasure this special gift. How special and generous of you!
