I posted the following and I would encourage and challenge any photographers here on POTN who are able to do so as well.
The Olivia Act, named after one of the children killed in Newtown, was started by Leslie Spurlock Photography. Olivia’s family had family pictures taken a short time before she was killed on that horrible day.
Upon hearing about this, Leslie was moved to give away a 30 minute family photo shoot and has challenged other photographers to do the same. I know that not all families have the resources to have photos taken every year, but I’d love 2013 to be the year for one of them.
While I have not been actively advertising my Photography business, nor have I been updating my website on a regular basis (school has been my top priority and will continue to be for a while) I would like to participate and give a Family Portrait Session and some Prints to a family in Central Ohio.
I will be taking nominations for a central Ohio family who you think would appreciate this gift of memories. The session will take place sometime after the new year. Email me your nominations to Paul@Pergerphotography.com including a brief message on who you’re nominating and the reason you’d love for them to receive this. I will contact the nominator and the family chosen via email, so please include that as well! I'll be taking the nominations until January 31st.
Please SHARE this status so your friends and family will know too! Can’t wait to gift a family with these memories that can’t be replaced or taken away!
And fellow photographers, please think about participating in the Olivia act too. You can "Like" the Olivia Act page on Facebook...
