I read about the contest for the photo giveaway to someone in need and I have the perfect candidate! My mom was diagnose will small cell lung cancer just over a month ago. She is currently going through her second round of chemo and will start radiation next week. We had to shave her head a week ago but she looks beautiful with her new bald head. My mom is single, is unable to work, and is waiting to be approved for Medicaid (to pay all of her medical bills/prescription costs) and Disability/SSI. My sister and I have been trying to take care of her personally and any and all costs that have arisen since her diagnoses. I would love for us to have a photo shoot with her. I think it would be something so special to cherish when she is gone! There is so much more to the story but I thought that I would keep it short and simple! I promise you that my mom is a VERY deserving candidate! Thanks for your consideration!!!!!
I can't wait to meet you and your family, Kristi!

This idea isn't my own. Kristen Kalp came up with this amazing idea to give an awesome gift to a very deserving family.
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 -- $800 worth, to be exact. Whether it's a storyboard or prints for Grandma, or a slideshow to watch over and over, 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?
* You cannot nominate yourself, and the person nominated must sincerely be incapable of purchasing my services. (Being unable to make mortgage payments for a two-million-dollar-vacation-home in Paris does not qualify as sincere financial need.)
* The nominee must reside in Ohio. 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 : firstname.lastname@example.org
The winner will be announced on Christmas Eve -- 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.

I still have a few spots left for your holiday portraits. I know I'm crazy for opening up a few more spots, but I want to make sure everyone gets in for their portraits.
Enjoy the season and be sure to spend lots of quality family time together. :-)
