Here we are, November of the longest year ever. Much like everyone else, I have been riding waves of anxiety, fear, happiness, hope and gratefulness. Yesterday was one of those bad days where the weight of the world felt like it was crushing me. One of those days where you eat pizza in bed and just have a good cry. I wear my heart on my sleeve and worry so much about my family, my business and my friends.
Out of the blue I got a facebook message from a client who I hadn't seen in a while. She is a nurse on the front lines putting her life at risk daily. She has a young family and should be worrying about her. Nope...she was reaching out to support local businesses and wanted to book a shoot for next year and pay in advance. Cue waterworks. How is this hero thinking about other people right now???
Now, more than ever we need to support our friends, neighbors, and front line workers. So, I want to pay her random act of kindness forward. If you or someone you know is a health care worker I would like you to nominate yourself/them for a free photo shoot. Simply email me firstname.lastname@example.org (with the hyphen) with persons info/where they work and why you think the session should be awarded to them/yourself. I am not sure how many I will choose but this is open to a newborn swaddled session, baby milestone of family shoot outdoors spring/summer 2021. Sorry not doing family shoots in the studio this winter for safety reasons (working with wee ones).
Thank you to all of our health care workers. Sincerely.
