November Monthly Special. . . a Giveaway!!

I'm a few days late in posting this month's special but I promise it's been worth the wait.

I have to admit, we're getting into my favorite time of the year.  I just love the holidays!  And, this time of year I always sit back and think about all the many things that I am so thankful for.  Now, I know that for many this last year has been a rough year thanks to the lovely downfall of the economy and other from other varying circumstances.  Many people we know and love have lost their jobs, homes and have had a very difficult time 'bouncing back' and may be having a hard time right now.  So this month rather than offering a "special" I'm going to have a little giveaway with a little perk for anyone that enters. 

So here it goes. . .

We all know of 'someone'.


You know. . . 'someone' who has had a tragedy, is struggling to stay afloat, is raising a family while holding down more than one job, or is always giving selflessly despite extenuating personal circumstances. 'Someone' who can't afford a photo session for their family, but who would cherish it this holiday season and for years to come. 'Someone' who truly deserves a year-round reminder of just how special they and their family are.

You know 'someone'. We all do. I guarantee it.


I want to know who they are, and with your help I want them to know how much they are appreciated, loved and cared for this Holiday Season by giving them a FREE photo session.
(and some other goodies to go with it - I'll post about those as we get closer to the submission deadline) 

Oh, and the best part? The person who nominates the winner will recieve a Mini Session of their own. What better reason to show some love could there possibly be?

But wait. . . there's more. . .
Just for nominating someone you'll get $5 off of your next photo session with me!  That's reason enough right there to nominate that 'someone' in your life!!

 
The winner must live in or be willing to travel to the Utah Wasatch Front area for their session. Tell me who you know, what they're experiencing, and why they deserve a photo session. Please include a way to contact both yourself and the person you're nominating. You can nominate more than one family
but. . . sorry you can't nominate yourself

Then, e-mail your nomination to vivienvanleeuwen@yahoo.com - by midnight on Thanksgiving Day. The winner will be announced on Dec 6th (my birthday) just in time to get their pictures done before Christmas ... so start thinking of that 'someone' in your life and get nominating! I can't wait to read all of your entries! 




**If you or someone you know would be interested in contributing to this giveaway in any way,  (to make it an even more special experience for the winning family)  please e-mail me at vivienvanleeuwen@yahoo.com before Dec 6th - Thanks!!**
