When I heard of the Olivia Act, I knew immediately as both a photographer and elementary school teacher, that this was something I wanted to be a part of.
The Olivia Act, named after one of the children killed in Newtown, was inspired by Olivia’s family who had family pictures taken a short time before she was killed. Those pictures are precious and now priceless to them. Upon hearing this, an anonymous 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. This session will take place after the New Year. I will be taking Nominations until December 31st. If you know someone who has fallen on hard times this past year, please email their name, contact information, and a brief summary of why you chose them to email@example.com putting “THE OLIVIA ACT NOMINATION” in the subject line. The chosen family will be contacted via email or phone call. Please DO NOT post their information here. The gift is a 30 minute session and a collection of digital portraits, so they may have priceless keepsakes to adorn their home. Please share this blog post. Thank you. ♥
*This session will take place in the Orlando area*
