The Big 1 Giveaway { Giving Back to Santa Clarita }

*** Please note: Nomations will now be accepted for an additional week. The due date has been updated in this blog post. ***

The end of last week marked Cristen Farrell Photography‘s 1 year anniversary of being in business I couldn’t be more excited to celebrate.  I am proud to say that I have been an Santa Clarita Valley resident for the past 25 years and I am beyond proud of what this town has become.  During this past year, the SCV community has rallied around me and supported me every step of the way, so I really want to focus this celebration on giving back all the love that has been given to me.

At this time, I am requesting nominations for an SCV individual or family who is in need or who you think just plain deserves an awesome prize.  To nominate a family or individual, please leave a comment on this blog post.  You choose how much information to share, but please be respectful of their privacy; please at least include the first letter of the last name so they can be identified during voting (if the individual or family wins, more specific information will be required, but it will be kept private).  Nominations will be accepted through Tuesday, August 9th.

  1. I would like to nominate SCV neighbors, Cathy F-P and her family, for the wonderful opportunity for family portaits.

  2. Sharon D. and her family have gone through a lot lately and always show how strong there family bond is regardless of hardships. Her mother has had some recent health scares and as soon as the fears were cleared from that, they lost their very sweet recent rescue pup. I think their family would truly shine during a beautiful photo shoot. The timing would also make a keepsake to serve as a reminder of their bond and make some recent negatives more positive.

  3. I would like to nominate the M family who is constantly a joy and inspiration to me. SM is fighting for a cure for a very rare disease that she has and the whole family is very supportive in the fight against FA. She continues to be an inspiration for young people facing adversity and greatly deserves this prize.

  4. I would like to nominate Jeannette D. She is expecting her second baby (a boy!) soon and she would like to have maternity pics taken with her, her BF and their daughter. Since her and her BF are looking to purchase a home/move before the birth of their baby boy, she does not have the funds for maternity AND newborn pictures. The birth of a child is an amazing experience and I believe that Jeannette should not be precluded from having both maternity and newborn pictures as keepsakes. Jeannette D deserves a fabulous photo session before the birth of her baby boy.
