Giving is AWESOME

Well, it's FINALLY FRIDAY. So i'm sure many of you are planning to head out for some Holiday Shopping. In an earlier post, I mentioned giving gifts that had meaning, rather than just scouring the mall for steals and deals. Well, I've joined this amazing initiative and am offering a giveaway from Jubilee Photography, through an amazing collaboration of photographers called Giving is Awesome.

It was started by a local photographer, the very sweet and very talented Kristen Kalp (Another Kristen who spells it with an "e" and is a photographer and is really awesome..there are just too few of us). She started Giving is Awesome as a way to give back to people you know who deserve a little something extra this holiday season-

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 is always giving to others and never asks for anything in return. 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 who is going through a hard time, whether it's financially, emotionally, mentally or physically.

You know someone. I guarantee it.

The giveaway will be limited to people in the DE/MD/PA area (New Castle Co, DE, Chester Co. PA, Cecil & Harford Co. MD, or those willing to drive to those areas for FREE PICTURES) and you will have to email us at to submit your nomination. Make sure you submit their name and email, as well as their location and why this person or this family deserves this gift, along with your own name and email, and location.

The winner will receive a portrait session with us, complete with DVD of their choice of fully retouched images AND a $250 credit toward any print or album order. And the person who nominates the winner will also receive a $100 credit toward a portrait session of their own! Winners will be announced Christmas Eve.

Start sending emails, and if you aren't in the area, check out Giving is Awesome for a photog in your region. Tis the season for giving to those who truly deserve something better, because like the other Kristen know someone.
