This year I am adding something new to the business!
My heart strings always pull and break when I come across a family with a new baby who absolutely cannot afford newborn photos.
I was a single/young mom once, and I just didn't have it in my budget to get photos. To be totally honest, by oldest son didn't have professional photos done until he was a year old when my mom took him in to get some done as a gift to me! I cherish those photos.
So, I wanted to do something... and I've done giveaways in the past for this very reason. However, I wanted to try something new this year. Something more consistent. Starting in February, I will be offering ONE newborn session per month to a family who truly would not be able to get photos of their newest baby otherwise. I've added an application for this scholarship on my website under the "Contact Me" tab.
What might qualify you for this?
Well, when I was a young mom we literally lived paycheck to paycheck and had to juggle bills a lot.
We had state assistance for about everything.
We worked hard to make the money to pay our bills. (and those can mount up for various reasons!)
OR for example if you are on a MAJOR budget because of some medical bills...
It doesn't mean you have to have alllll of these things to qualify, these are just personal examples, these are what inspired me to start this program. If you or some one you know is in a position right now where they just don't have the money to invest in professional photos and they deserve them, please please apply.
I love nothing more than to give parents these images to hold on to forever. And for alll of my boys... I wasn't in a position to get them for myself. Sooo I've wanted to do something like this for some time.
God has blessed me with a gift and the ability to do something with it, so I am listening and so beyond excited to start this!
p.s. I will likely not be able to respond to every application, but I will let the person selected know ASAP.
