Giving is Awesome 2011 {WINNERS}

Whew, is it really Christmas Eve already?! I think it has something to do with our mild winter, but it seems like just yesterday was October and here we are in a flurry of last minute baking and getting ready to swap presents tonight! Giving is Awesome is one of my favorite things I do all year long; today, the announcement is just the beginning. For the next year, I will get the privilege of photographing six wonderfully deserving families. Although only one will win the $1000 package, all of the other nominees will get a Deluxe Mini Session worth $250, and the nominator of the grand prize winner will receive $250 in print credit. Each of the people nominated this year has a unique story that brings them to my knowledge, but all of them have something in common: they have all gone out of their way to help others, even in their own time of need, and because of this incredible giving spirit they have, someone took notice. Someone cared enough to take 5 or 10 minutes to sit down and write me, sharing their story of generosity and struggle. For that, I am grateful.

And because a post isn’t a post without pictures, here are some images from past Giving is Awesome sessions!

Merry Christmas Eve!
