Giving is Awesome


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 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. I guarantee it.

I want to know who they are, and I want to give them the chance to experience complimentary custom photography – over $200 worth, to be exact. This offer includes:
•an outdoor family session with online proofing gallery of 30 final digitally enhanced images
•24 wallets
•3 accordion-style brag books (new product!) featuring 10-15 favorite images

Oh, and the best part? The person who nominates the winner receives 50% off their next canvas gallery wrapped portrait!!! What better reason to show some love could there possibly be people?

The rules:

* You cannot nominate yourself, and the person nominated must sincerely be incapable of purchasing my services. (Being unable to make mortgage payments for a two-million-dollar-vacation-home in Paris does not qualify as sincere financial need.)

* The nominee must reside within 100 miles of the Northfield, Minn., area.

* You must e-mail me the full story with 'giving is awesome' as the subject: tlittle@sweetshibui.com. (no phone calls or Facebook nominations please!) Tell me who you know, what they're experiencing, and why they deserve my artwork. Don't forget to include a way to contact both your nominee and yourself as well.(out of respect for the winner, the story/names may or may not be posted on my site)

*Session must be booked by August 2010

All nominations must be received by Christmas Eve--the winner will be announced at noon on Christmas (if possible)– so get nominating! I can't wait to read all of your entries!

Open your heart to someone this holiday season -- and thanks for giving me the opportunity to open mine.

With love and super excitement,


Know someone perfect to nominate who lives out of my area? TONS of photographers are involved in this campaign -- check it out!!!
