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. The 26 Portrait Project aims to have 26 photographers each donate a session to a needy family — one for each person killed in Newtown.
I will be taking nominations for a family or couple who you think would appreciate this gift of memories. The session will take place sometime after the new year and will be completely FREE to the family being nominated. Please email me (You can use the above contact form.) your nominations subject titled “Olivia Act” and include a brief message on who you’re nominating and the reason you’d love them to get this. The family chosen will be contacted via email, so please include their email address as well! I’ll be taking nominations anytime between now (December 19th) and December 31st. The winner must be willing to come to South Jordan, Utah for their session. 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 too. ♥
