2013 has just begun… As I sit and imagine with dreamy ideas about success and fortitude, I am subtly reminded of the elements in my life that ground me. My inner spirit often drowned out by the sea of every day happenings, is revived by the fundamental pieces of our own human connections with others. Photography has led me down a path more fulfilling than I could have ever perceived. I think the key has been that I’ve been quick to find the genre that feeds my creativity, confronts my personal ideas and challenges my levels of joy with each and every shoot.
In 2012 I won two awards for my maternity and birth photography – a stunning reward for my journey so far. But the true reward has been each and every miracle I’ve witnessed. The women I’ve met and stories I’ve heard, the births I’ve attended and the tears of joy and words of love, and the gratitude I hold in the knowledge that I’ve created a gift valuable for generations to give back to each parent – this is the reward that sets my soul on fire. 2013 is going to see this genre of birth photography grow as its eternal value is realised.
Okay, so I’ll get to the point here. I’m offering my “Complete Birth Suite” – that’s complete maternity, birth and newborn photography worth $2,500, to someone very special and I need your help to find them! The winner of this give away will be someone you hold in your heart with love and compassion – which may include yourself! I’m looking for a family so deserving of this precious gift that you feel compelled to tell me their story and why you think they should have this gift.
Every women expecting a child has a story worth telling and is deserving of a once in a lifetime gift that gives many times over. Every journey – each one is unique and special. I will capture it with respect and love.
There are no strings. You do not need to follow anything, share it, like it, etc. (you are more than welcome to but it’s not a part of the giveaway).
I will be reading each and every email. Selection will be based on what feels right in my heart.
Please, tell me your story below in the comments section, or if you’d prefer, send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
