The Olivia Act
“The Olivia Act, named after one of the children killed in the tragedy that took place in Newton, Connecticut, was started by a photographer who wishes to remain anonymous. Olivia’s family had family pictures taken a short time before she was killed. Those pictures are precious and now priceless to them. Upon hearing about this, this photographer was moved to give away a 30 minute family photo session and has challenged other photographers to do the same. We go about our daily lives and sometimes we don’t take the time or have the resources to have family photos taken.”
We are honored to announce we will be participating in The Olivia Act. Starting today, we will take nominations from our friends of families who would benefit from a completely free portrait session in the Roaring Fork Valley (including a disc of digital negatives and 3-8×10 prints) to capture a story of their life to hold onto and cherish forever. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your nomination’s name, their contact information and a brief story as to why you want to nominate that person/family. On January 14th we will choose the recipient of this gift.
Thank you in advance for all who participate in this wonderful act and a big thanks to those who started this.
Remember each day is precious and enjoy.
"Avery's understanding of my requests for projects and his ability to interpret the look I am going for are superior matching his creative ability. He listens to what I want and then produces material that goes beyond my expectations. He has created print material and recently created an amazing DVD celebrating my husband's retirement using old photos, newspaper clippings and remarks from my husband's partners. The finished product was again above and beyond my expectations. Avery is truly a professional in the business and the only one I would trust with future work."
"Katrina seems to be able to capture true feelings in her pictures, whether it's taking pictures of a brother and sister, friends or weddings. I think her pictures are wonderful and I would recommend her to everyone."
"Katrina is an absolute BLAST to work with. She's very comfortable, fun to work with and always open to suggestions. With both shoots she did for us she made it a point to get the shots that I specifically asked her to get, and if I had an idea she listened and made it an amazing photo!"
