There's a bandwagon among photographers across the country and you're about to see me jump on it! Started by Pennsylvania photographer Kristen Kalp, Giving is Awesome is a movement whose goal is to giveaway 1,000,000 (yes, one million!) dollars worth of custom photography to families needing a bright spot in their lives. As of this blog post 423 photographers have signed on and pledged almost half a million dollars in giveaways. I'm about to add $1400.00 to that number.

So, here's the deal:

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 – $1250 worth, to be exact. Enough to cover my session fee and my Show It Package – and, believe me, there are tons of goodies in that package.

Oh, and the best part? The person who nominates the winner receives a free session of their own (to cover the $150 session fee). What better reason to show some love could there possibly be, people?

The rules:

* 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 Alabama or be willing/able to travel to Huntsville for our session. 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 : (link to my email addy in the sidebar)

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.

With love,

Erin Cobb
