I leaked this information a little early on my Facebook page. Consider it now official!
These sessions will be held at one of my most favorite outdoor locations in Crothersville, Indiana. Images will be ready just in time to gift to Mom and Grandma for Mother’s Day!
Spaces are limited. Book early to ensure your spot!
Last month I, along with with several photographers across the globe, wanted to do some small act of kindness in memory and honor of the Sandy Hook Elementary victims. I reached out to my friends, family, and clients asking for nominations for families that could benefit from a free family photo session. It was heartwarming to see so many nominations coming in for your friends, family, and loved ones. I couldn’t pick just one family. I couldn’t pick two families. Instead, I asked each of my three children to pick a number from the hat for three winning families. Family photos are simply that important to me. I want another mommy to have the beautiful tangible memories that I have and cherish. I want another grandma to have a beautiful photo of her grandchildren to hang on her walls. I want another daddy to have a photo in his wallet the he can proudly pull out and show off to the world.

Thank you for taking the time out of your day to nominate these families! I can’t wait to work with them!
The tragic events of December 14, 2012 will forever have a lasting effect on our hearts, minds, and souls. On December 14, 2012, 26 people, including 20 children, lost their lives in a heinous, senseless act of violence. As the country mourned the loss of these innocent babies and adults, one amazing photographer, Leslie Spurlock, realized that one of the children had recently had family photos taken. Leslie, like many of us photographers, knows how important family photos are and how they will be cherished long beyond the second the shutter is clicked. Out of this, The Olivia Act was created. The Olivia Act is a challenge to photographers worldwide to gift a family one of life’s most priceless gifts – tangible memories. Please visit The Olivia Act at: https://www.facebook.com/TheOliviaAct
As a mommy of three happy, healthy, beautiful children, and a photographer that gets to watch all the special little people grow up in front of my camera, I simply HAVE to take Leslie up on this challenge. I want to give a special local family a gift in the honor of the Sandy Hook Elementary victims. I want to give a mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, sister, brother, aunt, uncle, and best friend the gift of a photo they can keep forever of their loved one.
What: 30 minute session + hi-resolution image files + 2 – 5×7 prints + 8 wallet prints
Who: A local family that has NOT had family photos taken with the last 12 months
When: Session to be held before May 31, 2013
Where: Location of choice (within 20 miles of 47274)
How: Please email your nominations (yes, you may nominate yourself!) to email@example.com with the words OLIVIA ACT in the subject line.
