The Olivia Act - Paying It Forward

The Olivia Act, named after one of the children killed in Newtown, CT., was started by a photographer who wishes to remain anonymous.  Olivia's family had pictures taken a short time before she was killed.  Those pictures are precious and now pricesless to them.  Upon hearing this, this photographer was moved to give away a 30 minute family photo shoot and has challenged other photographers to do the same.  We go about our daily lives and sometimes we don't take the time or have the resources to have family photos taken.

We are quite passionate about our portraits and honored that families have entrusted me to capture precious moments for them.  We have decided to participate in this wonderful act of kindness.  As some of you know I recently loss my mother just a few days before Christmas and I know she would be proud of me for doing this.  

We will be taking nominations for a family who you think would appreciate this gift.  We will be taking nominations until January 21st, 2013 when we will choose a family.  Please send a e-mail to with their name, contact information and a brief summary of why you chose them and put  "THE OLIVIA ACT NOMINATION" in the subject line.  The chosen family will be contacted via e-mail, so please include their contact information with the nomination.  The gift is a session and a print portrait package so they may have priceless keepsakes to adorn their home.  Please share this status if you have friends or family in Rhode Island.
