{Santa Charity Event}

Holiday Giveaway - Nominate someone today!  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 – $200 worth, to be exact. Whether it's a custom book, canvas, prints for Grandma, or a slide show to watch over and's in your power to give them the artwork they deserve this holiday season. 

Oh, and the best part? The person who nominates the winner receives a $50 print credit. What better reason to show some love could there possibly be?

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-home does not qualify as sincere financial need.)

The nominee must reside/be willing to travel to the Utah Wasatch Front (Cache, Weber, Davis, Salt Lake counties) area. Tell me who you know, what they're experiencing, and why they deserve my artwork. Please include a way to contact both your nominee and yourself as well.

You must have your nomination in by December 18th at Midnight.

Comment on this blog entry to let me know you've entered, and e-mail me the full story: The winner will be announced on Christmas Eve...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.

Many thanks to the other photographers joining me in this spirit. If you are not local to me check out Giving Is Awesome to see if there's someone closer to home for winning portrait-y goodness!

{In the Know ~ October 2009}

I hope you savor the lovely month of October. The shortened days are illuminated with the halcyon light of the shifting autumn sun that gives new life to familiar scenery, and the vibrant colors of the season are painted with bold strokes of gold, mulberry, and scarlet across the landscape. Breathtaking, isn’t it?

Autumn is one of the most beautiful times of year to have an outdoor portrait taken. Fall portraits are especially stunning when you wear lovely jewel tones colors, navy blue, hunter green, denim, black, or any combination of brown tones. Consider scheduling an appointment before the season’s colors fade.

This year Captured By Lisa Photography, LLC is participating in the International Charity Model Search to select North America’s Cutest Family, and you’re invited to enter the competition. Many prizes will be awarded, and the grand prize winner receives a new car! You know you’re family’s good looking, now you can prove it. Call the studio to hear about our special contest pricing.  Besides being a fun contest, the International Charity Model Search also raises funds for Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep (NILMDTD). NILMDTS is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization committed to assisting parents and families going through the difficult time when they experience an early infant loss. NILMDTS connects families with photographers and provides them with a DVD and a reproducible CD of the images of their baby. For further information on NILMDTS, visit  Last year’s Charity Model Search was a huge success, with 2,000 model’s images entered into the contest and $164,775 raised for the Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep organization.  For more information about the International Charity Model Search, please visit the International Charity Model Search  website.

Do you know any high school juniors who want to have some fun (free) portrait sessions with their friends and get discounts on next year’s senior portraits? We’re looking for kids to be Spirit Seniors.  A Spirit Senior is a coordinator who gets some friends together for a portrait session to create images we’ll use in our marketing. The students will also receive two additional portrait sessions where they can create new photos for their Facebook account. The Spirit Seniors must be in the 2011 graduating class.  Kids love to act as models, have a great time, and get cool photos with their friends that they’ll cherish forever.  The coordinator and the participating students also get other cool stuff.  We're going to be selection our Spirit Seniors soon, so if you know anyone who might be interested, call 801-603-7696 now for more information.

Did you know Captured By Lisa Photography, LLC loves to photograph weddings?  So many details go into making the day as special as it can be.  I understand how important a wedding is, and I record the day with great care and attention to detail.  I honor tradition and recognize the importance of whimsy and fun on your wedding day.  The flowers fade, the laughter and tears become sweet memories, the cake is eaten, but wedding portraits last forever.  Call me now for wedding pricing.  You've got so many other details to take care of.  Trust me to provide portraits you'll love.

I am excited to let you know that I now provide framing on your portrait orders.  How nice would it be order your beautiful pictures and have them arrive ready to hang on the wall.  Well now I am able to offer that to you.  No more pictures left on your desk collecting dust waiting to go to the framers.  I have it all done for you with a variety of frames to chose from.
