{Travis Ferrell} Chattanooga Senior Photography - Diana Simpson Photography

Travis is the younger brother to one of my kids favorite baby sitters. So when his sister asked if she could shadow me for her senior project I was pretty excited! She needed some action shots of me
"working" so we picked my neighbors cool property to go get some fun photographs. Here are many of my favorites ( this guy is a natural in front of the camera)

{Free Photography Session Give-a-way} Chattanooga, TN - Diana Simpson Photography

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. 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 -- $1000 worth, to be exact. Whether it's canvas or albums, prints for Grandma, or a slideshow to watch over and over, it'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 $250 print credit. What better reason to show some love could there possibly be, people?

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-vacation-home in Paris does not qualify as sincere financial need.)

* The nominee must reside in or near Chattanooga, TN. Tell me who you know, what they're experiencing, and why they are deserving. Please include a way to contact both your nominee and yourself as well.

* You must e-mail me the full story : (feel free to include a photo of the family)

*Deadline is Feb. 13th.

The winner will be announced on FEB. 14TH!!! -- So get nominating! I can't wait to read all of your entries!

Open your heart to someone this year -- and thanks for giving me the opportunity to open mine.

With love,

Diana Simpson

Special thanks to the remarkable Kristen Kalp, the photographer who started the whole thing! Learn more at

Thursday afternoon I met and spent a couple hours with Cooper and his little sister Peri. We covered  all of their favorite things to do in a record time and I know they both had to be worn out by the time we got finished ( at least mom Paige and I were :) Here are a couple of my favorites from these two.
