The Ultimate Christmas Giveaway!

Photographers from all over the world have been challenged by a fellow photographer, Kristen Kalp of Essential Imagery, to offer an amazing gift this Christmas season and I could not pass up this opportunity. Times are tough right now and this is one way that I can make a difference this season.

For many people, this is an exciting time of year-the hustle and bustle, the shopping and gift giving, holiday parties and spending time with loved ones. For some, it's a struggle and a painful reminder of hard times.

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. So here's the deal. I will be giving away $1500 worth of products--canvases, slideshows, prints, albums, gifts...anything that I offer. And of course that includes a complimentary photography session. Oh, and the best part? The person who nominates the winner receives a complimentary session and a $250 print credit. What better reason to show some love could there possibly be?

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 within 45 miles of Queen Creek to qualify. Tell me who you know, what they're experiencing, and why they deserve my artwork. Please include contact information (phone number and email) for both your nominee and yourself.

* E-mail me the full story at

*All nominations must be received by midnight, December 22nd.

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.

With love,
