I cannot stop grieving over the recent tragedy in Connecticut. I can’t do much, but I’d like to do what I can….
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 session will take place sometime after the New Year here is Northeast Ohio and will be completely FREE to the family being nominated (including high-res digital images). Please inbox or e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) their name, contact information and a brief summary of why you chose them and put “THE OLIVIA ACT NOMINATION” in the subject line. Please do not post their information here. I will take nominations until December 31, 2012. The winner will be chosen and contacted in early January 2013. I’d be grateful if you could please share this status with other families as well.
Thank you. ♥
Fellow Photographers, please consider taking part in The Olivia Act!
