Giving is awesome update

I received quite a few submissions for Giving is Awesome. Thank you so much for the taking the time to nominate someone. It was very tough to pick one nominee. I had unbiased group of people to choose the winning submission. Due to the private information of the nominee, I'm not going to post any details right now, but if they give me the go ahead I will.

Thanks again for allowing me to do something great for someone who needs it & deserves it.

Giving is awesome

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 with an illness who maybe 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 – $400 worth, to be exact. I am giving away a free session plus a $250 print credit to be used on prints to decorate their home, or hand out to loved ones.

Oh, and the best part? The person who nominates the winner receives a FREE session worth $150. What better reason to show some love could there possibly be, people?

The rules:

* You cannot nominate yourself.

* The nominee must reside Muscle Shoals, Florence, Sheffield, or Tuscumbia. 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 :

The deadline for nominations is December 24, 2008 5PM CST. The winner will be announced on Christmas Day — 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.

I can't believe it actually snowed and actually stuck around for a little while. Aubrey & I got up Friday morning before Caleb did, so we got dressed & went outside to play in it. It was the first time Aubrey has ever played in the snow. She LOVED it.

Look mom, REAL snow!!!
