Do Something Awesome Sunday!

Personal

Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday…  Did you know about the Sunday event that combines all of them?  Yes, Donate-to-charity-via-a-small-business-through-the-magic-of-your-computer-and-get-an-awesome-deal-in-the-process Sunday!  Catchy, huh?
You may know that I’ve been doing a whole lot of running lately to ramp up for my first full marathon in January in Florida (in one week I’ll be running a half marathon in Las Vegas).  You may have also seen that I’m doing it in part to raise money for the fight against multiple sclerosis, a cause very near and dear to my heart.  I figured that there’s no better way to do this than to combine forces and offer something to you all.  
Here’s the skinny: Donate to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and get half of that amount in print credit from me.
So if you donate $50, you’ll have $25 to spend of your choice of beautifully retouched 4x6s, 5x7s, 8x10s, wallets, and even canvas prints.  Donate $300 and you’ll have $150 to spend.  Donate $3000 and you’ll have $1500 to spend.  See how that works?  It’s win win: you’re supporting research, treatment, and resources for the 2.1 million people diagnosed with this miserable disease and you get some incredible photography.
Here’s what you do:
1) Go here to donate through my fundraising page.
2) Donate any amount.
3) If your portrait, engagement session and/or wedding has already been shot, check your proofbook, disk of images, or online gallery (if it’s still active) and email me with the images, sizes, and quantity you want.
    If we haven’t shot yet, I’ll simply make a note on your contract and you’ll have that credit to use later.
    If you’re a family member or freind of an LDP client you choose: use the credit for yourself or put it in their name.
4) Find out if your employer will match your donation.  If they will and do it in your name, then that’s credited to you too.
Easy peasy.
As an added bonus, I’ll include an extra special treat to the client who donates the most.
Details: Donate by December 31st, 2011 and use your print credit by December 31st, 2012 or a year from your shoot, whichever is later.  I’m offering this print credit for donations up to $3000.  If you want to donate more (you rock!), contact me and I’ll make sure you’re well rewarded.  For clients who have already donated, thank you; your print credit has been recorded and you just need to let me know what you want!
If you have any questions at all about donating, the print credit, multiple sclerosis, National Multiple Sclerosis Society, running, weddings, or cheese, contact me and I’ll do my best to answer any questions I can.
Thanks so much!
All the best,
Lindsay

Every month I feature a new image for download for you to use as your desktop background. Click to download it and see it at its huge size and resolution.Wow, I can't believe that I've already been here for 5 months. I still feel like I'm getting used to everything. The weather is still nutty but oh how I love Springtime in Pennsylvania. The past few weeks everything has just opened up. I've been driving all over the Main Line for photo sessions and have seen all this lushness everywhere. Happiness is having the doors and windows open and a light breeze blowing through the house. Add my new flowers (pansies, daffodils) right out my win ...

I love April. Sure, there may be a few days of surprises (I don’t think I’ll ever forget Carolyn and Jeremy’s torrential downpour wedding) but we’re finally over this lion/lamb business and will most assuredly see real spring soon.Do you hear that? Those are birds chirping as I’m typing this. The sun is up in the mornings again. I no longer need to wear 10 layers to go outside. There are buds on everything. The crocuses came up a few weeks ago and I’m seeing daffodils everywhere.For someone who despises the cold, this is my happy time. The year is turning around and the earth is opening up. I can run outside, I can put away my sweater ...
