Giving is Awesome!

Help me give away 1K worth of photography!


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 — $1000 worth, to be exact. I will be giving away a full session, a beautiful custom designed coffee table book with images from their session, a 5×7 bordered proof set, and the kicker, they get a CD of their images with personal printing rights!  These items sold separately are worth over One Thousand Dollars, but it is my gift to one special family this season. It’s in your power to give them the artwork they deserve this holiday season.

Oh, and the best part? The person who nominates the winner receives a $150 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 Paris does not qualify as sincere financial need.)

* The nominee must reside in Oregon. 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 : emily[at]

The winner will be announced on Christmas Eve — get nominating! I can’t wait to read all of your entries!

This is a country wide project as well, with a bunch of other photographers, if you are one of my lovely out of state readers please click HERE to see if a photographer close to you is participating.

Open your heart to someone this holiday season — and thanks for giving me the opportunity to open mine.

With love,
