You know someone.

You know someone who's experienced a tragedy, is struggling to stay afloat, is raising kids while holding down more than one job, or is volunteering selflessly despite extenuating personal circumstances. You know someone who can't afford custom photography, but who would cherish it this holiday season. You know someone who deserves a year-round reminder of their family's spirit, love, and beauty.

You know someone. I guarantee it.

I want to know who they are, and I want to give them the chance to experience complimentary custom photography -- $500 (changed my mind after my initial post and upped the amount ;)) $750 worth of gorgeous family prints/albums/canvases after a complimentary gift session to be exact. It's in your power to give them the artwork they deserve this holiday season.

Oh, and the best part? The person who nominates the winner receives a $250 print credit. What better reason to show some love could there possibly be, people?

I'm just one person. You're just one person. We can help a family.  This isn't going to solve the root cause of any of their problems.  But if together we can give a family in need a little something to smile about and brighten the days ahead, let's do it.

The rules:

* You cannot nominate yourself, and the person nominated must sincerely be incapable of purchasing my services. (Being unable to make monthly payments on a yacht does not qualify as sincere financial need.)

* The nominee must reside in or around Houston, Texas. Tell me who you know, what they're experiencing, and why they deserve my artwork. Please include a way to contact both your nominee and yourself as well.

* You must e-mail me the full story @ by Christmas Eve, 2009.

The winner will be announced on New Years Day and this will hopefully be the start of a better 2010 for them. Get nominating! I can't wait to read all of your entries!

Open your heart to someone this holiday season -- and thanks for giving me the opportunity to open mine.

With love,
