OWP's 2nd Annual Thanksgiving Family...

Ladies and gentlemen... it is that time of year again! It is a time of family, friends, and giving thanks to all of the wonderful things we have. Last year, I asked that you write me and nominate a family in need. I was able to provide the winning family with photos that I hope they continue to cherish.

This year with times being so tough, I am confident that I will be able to help another family in need. If you know of an inspirational family (or your own family) that would greatly benefit from family photos but could otherwise not afford them, please write to me and tell me their story. I will be donating a studio session, along with a CD and print package.

Nominations are due by Thanksgiving Day- November 27th. The winning family will be notified shortly thereafter. I would love to schedule the shoot ASAP so that the family will receive their photos by Christmas. Please include the family's contact information.

Keep in mind that my choice will solely be based on your written nomination. So, if you just write, "I nominate the Johnson family because they can't afford photos," that doesn't really do much for me. I am inspired by who they are as people and why you think they deserve a personal photo session.

Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you!

Oh- I should add that the winning family must be able to have the photos taken at my studio in New Prague. So, this is limited to local families only, unless the family is able to make it to MN! The winning family also must be open to appearing on my blog.
