One of the most memorable experiences of my life was the week that I spent in the orphanages of Ecuador with the non profit group Dando Amor (www.dandoamor.com). It is hard to believe that the trip was almost 2 years ago…I have every intention of making it back because not a day goes by that I don’t think about those children and how their lives must have changed over that two year time period.
This month I am partnering with Dando Amor, along with other photographers and studios across the country, for a National “Shoes For Love” Shoe Drive. Yes, shoes!!! Something that so many of us take for granted and even have in excess, but there are 1.5 billion people around the world that don’t even have one pair of shoes. Many of those are precious children!! Yet…we throw away OVER 680 million pairs of shoes in every year right here in the USA.
In an effort to make this a “GIVE & GET” situation for all of you, my generous clients, I am going to be offering a day of Snapshot Sessions on Saturday, March 30th. These are going to be 30-minute sessions and will include a free high-resolution image of your choosing, AND I am going to offer anyone that books one of these sessions and shows up with a single pair or a bag full of shoes a $50 gift card for TriciaLee Photography. We aren’t being choosy…please bring any kind of shoe, any size and in any condition. Please help me make a dent in this sadness and let’s make this a special experience for your family together.
These sessions are going to be on a beautiful 34-acre farm in the heart of Holly Springs, GA. YES, I am over the moon excited about this amazing location and getting to spend an afternoon with all of you.
Thanks in advance for your support…I have some major “Spring Cleaning” to do myself. Yes, shoes are my THING and it’s time to roll up my sleeves and start eliminating the excess. If you would like more information on these sessions, please e-mail me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
