******SCROLL DOWN FOR NEW BLOG ENTRIES. THIS ONE WILL REMAIN ON TOP UNTIL DEC 20. ********top

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. Whether it’s canvas or albums, prints for Grandma, or a slideshow to watch over and over. 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 $250 print credit. What better reason to show some love could there possibly be, people?

I have teamed up with a group of 4 other Winnipeg photographers for this amazing giveaway. All entries received will be pooled together and the 5 most deserving nominees will receive their session with one of these talented women, chosen at random.

Another little boy who slept the whole session! And he was FULL of sleepy smiles!When I did his older brother’s newborn session in 2007, I was mainly a natural light photographer, and Mom wanted the same  for this session.

Easily one of the best newborn boys I have ever photographed! Slept the entire time, didn’t pee or poop once and accepted all the poses like a pro!
