Last year to celebrate the holiday season I ran the very successful best of 2010 giveaway. This year I wanted to do something a little different… after doing a few sessions with Helping Hearts, I’ve been inspired to create the “Spirit of the Holiday Season” giveaway:) I will be giving the gift of photography to a family locally who deserves a little extra pick me up this Christmas. I know it’s going to be super difficult to pick the winner, but I would like to make a difference in the Christmas of one special family <3 I am asking you to nominate a person/family/etc. who deserves and will benefit from the gift of memories this holiday season. Do you know someone who is always the first to help others? a family who is going through a difficult medical diagnosis? Someone who has had that black cloud over their head all year? I want you to nominate them. From now until December 20th I will be accepting nominations for this years Spirit of the Holiday Season Giveaway. The winner will be announced on Christmas Eve. How's that for a great kick off to Christmas!? Please email your nomination to email@example.com Information to include in your email: - Please have the subject of the email "Spirit of the Holiday Season Giveaway" - your name & email address - the name of the person/family that you are nominating, along with method to contact them (email/phone) - why you think the person you are nominating should win this years Spirit of the Holiday Season giveaway. So, what will they win? The lucky winner will receive a mini-session from Carol-Ann Photography (an outdoor photo session in Richmond BC in 2012, with 20 high res images images on disc, an online gallery, PLUS a special 16x20 canvas image from their session) The giveaway is valued at $400 An extra little something - there is a little gift for the person who nominates the family too - it will be extra special if that person has has their images taken by Carol-Ann Photography before! Bring on those nominations!!!!! Feel free to share this post on facebook, and get the information out there! I'm looking forward to hearing about some very special people and families in the Lower Mainland <3 Now, what's a blog post without photos?!?! Here's a little festive photo from our traditional "Take Paisley to go see Santa" day 😉 Can you tell she's used to looking at a camera?!?!
