“No matter who you are or where you’re from, home means something to you. Homes serve as the backdrop for our childhood memories as well as the background of the interpersonal dramas in our lives. Our homes hold an iconic status as a place we can always belong. A place we can always be ourselves, let our guard down and still be loved. Home is a place you look forward to, a place where just being yourself is good enough,” Dr Robi Ludwig.
As of September 15th, 2015, Reuters is reporting that 584 homes have been destroyed by the Lake County fires.
While having your home burn down isn’t the end of the world, when your whole community (13,000 residents) and the land around it (more than 67,000 acres) burns down as well… I think it might feel pretty close to the end of your world.
It is certainly not something I ever hope to experience.
This being the first time I have lived so close to a crisis of this scale, it is so powerful and moving to see my community rally together to help the families who have lost everything and I want to do my part as well.
So I am offering FREE one hour digital photo shoots in Petaluma to the first 10 people who donate $250 or more to one of the following organizations that is raising money to support the relief efforts for the victims of the Lake County area fires (value $450.)
Once you make a donation directly to the organization, please send your proof of payment to: email@example.com and we will set up a time to photograph your family in your home.
Offer is good for a one hour family digital photo shoot in Petaluma and it includes five high-resolution digital files. Additional files can be purchased. Additional travel fee for photo shoots outside of Petaluma.
