In light of the Sandy Hook tragedy, and in response to this amazing concept brought about by a photographer in CT, I’m on board to participate.
The Olivia Act, named after one of the children killed in Newtown, was started by a photographer who wishes to be anonymous. Olivia’s family had family pictures taken a short time before she was killed. Those pictures are precious and now priceless to them. Upon hearing this, this photographer was moved to give away a 30 minute family photo shoot and has challenged other photographers to do the same. We go about our daily lives and sometimes we don’t take the time or have the resources to have family photos taken.
I will be taking nominations for a family who you think would appreciate this gift. The 30 minute session will take place sometime after the New Year and will be completely FREE to the family being nominated. Please inbox or e-mail their name, contact information and a brief summary of why you chose them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put “THE OLIVIA ACT NOMINATION” in the subject line. Please do not post their information here. I will take nominations between Jan 1 and Jan 15, 2013. The winner will be chosen and contacted on January 31, 2013. Please share this status. Thank you. ♥
* Nominees must be local to the Northern VA area.
