You know what my favorite part of being a photographer is? I can photograph my own kids for any and every reason I want. We do a photo session for every milestone, small and large. To me, photographs are the best way to preserve the time with my littles, which is going by way too fast! I look back at photos, and feel a flood of emotion, as I’m brought back to the time they were taken, remembering how little my babies were, or how they used to wrinkle their nose when they smiled the biggest smile, or how they used to squeal with excitement over their favorite toys, how their wobbly little legs held them up for the first steps, how those legs grew longer and stronger for running and jumping! I love photos, and I love sharing that gift with other families too! I believe every family should have beautiful pictures, that they should be hung proudly in every home. Because what kind of art could be more important or more beautiful than a photograph full of lovely memories.
However, I know that not all families can afford professional photography. So, in the spirit of Thanks and Giving, I’d like to donate a free photo session along with images and prints to a deserving family who couldn’t otherwise afford to have the photos taken. But I need your help to find that family! Do you know someone special in San Diego County who has an inspirational story and would love to have photos done, but financial hardship prevents them from doing it? Maybe it’s a single mom who struggles to care for her kiddos on her own, or a family who is out of work and could really use some joyful memories, or maybe a military mom who keeps things together on her own at home while her hubby fights the good fight, or maybe a family with a special needs child that has made sacrifices for his/her care. Obviously, there are a whole lot of deserving families out there, and I’d like to hear why you think they would love a photo session.
All you need you to do is email me (use the little mail icon above to contact me or email kendra(at)kendrakrishnan(dot)com) and tell me their story. In your email, include your name and contact information, along with the name and contact info of the person you are nominating. The family chosen will receive a full family session (up to two hours) at the location of their choosing in San Diego County, to be scheduled in 2014, along with a deluxe package of prints and digital files. I will be taking nominations through December 15, 2013 and will announce the winner in time for Christmas!
Please share this with family and friends, I hope to see many nominations coming in! Looking forward to hearing from all of you!
And because no post is complete without a picture, here’s one of my boy, and his best friend, his thatha. Such a wonderful memory of the love they have for each other <3
