help me give

Ok, so I obviously used the wrong wording when I posted that I have a “big ol’ juicy announcement on the blog tomorrow” on my Facebook page yesterday. Just to clear the air…

No, I am not pregnant.

No, I am not announcing a workshop at this time.

No, I am not announcing mini sessions (sorry they never happened this fall, by the way)

The wording should have been something more like “sweet, innocent, and free on the blog tomorrow.”

With that said, I am announcing a free session giveaway….and I need your help to give it. As we move from the season of gratitude to the season of giving, I want to give and I want to give to someone who really wants or needs it.

What am I giving? A full session along with a disc of full resolution digital images and mini leather album (value $2000).

Who is the session for? Anyone…babies, families, engagements, high school seniors, children, couples, models, newlyweds, best friends…anyone.

How is one to win the session? This is where you come in, internet friends. If you know of someone in serious need or want of a photo shoot and think this would be the perfect Christmas gift for them, please email me your story/reason as to why you want to “nominate” them ( Your reason can, but does not have to be a financial reason…it could be any reason as to why you feel your friends/family/coworker/neighbor deserves it.

Anddddd, the fine print…
I will review all entries and the winner will be chosen on December 15th.
By writing in, please know that if your story/reason is chosen as a finalist or winner, it may appear on my blog (names will not be used).
You can not write in and nominate yourself, sorry!
Session is to be used sometime before August 31, 2011.
This session can take place in either Michigan or Utah (we will be traveling to Utah for three weeks in July 2011)

Happy Holidays to everybody!

    Love it! What a lovely idea, Jean! I could nominate lots of folks in need down here in Brazil, but I’m guessing that travel is not included 😉 I look forward to seeing the winning session!

  2. Josh S. says:

    Jean and Travis deserve it. I could list a lot of reasons, but that would just be silly.

  3. jean says:

    I’m beginning my own blog to share my personal photography encounters. Are you finding it difficult or simple to publish regularly?

  6. I just love taking real estate photos. Love pretty much everything about photography. I love to talk about it. I love to dream about it. I see the beautful inspiring photos online and wish I can be the one taking it. Yeah, that’s my ultimate dream. SBG

  7. […] I announced my giveaway earlier this month, I figured it would be easy peasy.  I would receive a few nominations, choose […]
