|OK, first of all, I take no credit for coming up with this amazing idea. Rachel and I have tossed around ideas about how to use Love, Me as a vessel to give of ourselves and help those in need, and while we have some kickin’ ideas, there was no way to pull them off this year (but seriously stay tuned as we try to pull them off next year 🙂 ). And then, the uber talented and witty Kristen Kalp at Essential Imagery announced this a few days ago on her blog and challenged other photographers to help give back as well. If you all know me, you know I am always up for a big challenge! Thanks Kristen for your inspiration AND allowing me to blatantly plagiarize [with permission of course 🙂 ].
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 gives and gives of themselves selflessly despite what may appear to be a hopeless situation, never asking for one thing in return. That person or family that challenges you to love better, serve better, and just BE better.
The truth is – custom photography is a luxury, not a necessity. I know that. But, another truth is that second to our relationship with the Lord, I would argue that our relationships with those around us are the most important, especially during trying times. Of course, this is why I am so passionate about what I do. Capturing those memories forever is something that is invaluable to me. Because I am blessed beyond words to have the gift to do what I do, we want to give that heroic person/family in your life a chance to receive the gift of custom photography. You know someone who can’t afford custom photography, but who would cherish it this holiday season. You know someone who sincerely deserves a year-long reminder of their family’s strength, love, support, and spirit!
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 – $1000 worth, to be exact.
We are going to give away a $1000 photography gift that includes a complimentary photography session, slideshow DVD to watch over and over, Session Album with ALL images in 5×7, and $650 print credit to be used for prints for Grandma, wall portraits , or storyboards! It’s in your power to give someone the gift of their life as artwork this holiday season. Oh, and the best part? The person that nominates the winner will receive a $250 print credit!
*You cannot nominate yourself, and the person you nominate must sincerely be incapable of purchasing custom photography services. (Being unable to make mortgage payments on a two-million-dollar-vacation-home in Paris does not qualify as sincere financial need.)
*The person you nominate needs to live in North Texas (DFW Metroplex).
*Please e-mail us the full story : firstname.lastname@example.org
Wonder & Blessings.
Crystal and Rachel
