I’ve written and re-written the opening sentences of this post several times over, not knowing where to begin or how to coherently express myself. So, I’ve decided to start typing, keep typing, and hopefully you can put points A, B and C together :)
For those of you who follow my photography work either by visiting this blog or my fanpage, you will know that I often take part in fundraising adventures. I do so without giving it a second thought. I do so because there are endless individuals in the world who need our support, assistance and a little extra encouragement. I’ll admit that a lot of times I feel overwhelmed with the amount of negativity, sadness, illness, destruction, etc that take place outside the 4 corners of my home and I wonder if it will ever end. Truthfully, we all know it won’t, so I guess that’s why I continue to do what I do; giving a little extra on my end in hopes of it extending someone else’s happiness, life or positive outlook on the world.
Of course I have a business, a home, and most importantly a family that needs my income and personal support to survive. But life is more than just survival and existence… it’s about living. It’s about gratitude. It’s about teaching your children right from wrong and it’s about giving back. It’s also about memories.
I want people to capture important moments in their life. But, I also want people to feel like they’ve contributed towards a better society, more specifically, the part of society that holds a special place in their heart or mind.
For July, August, September and October of this year (2012), photos by holly is giving back. WE are giving back. How? By me donating your $150 session fee** to the registered charity of your choice.
I get to create, you get to be a part of your family’s photographic legacy and we both become part of a little social goodness. It’s as simple as that.
Email me for more info and to book your giving back session. Thank you, so very much!
** image DVD, products, prints, etc., are an additional investment
