It’s “Box”ing Week! It’s Hip to Be Squared!! GiveAWAY December 28, 2012

Boxing Day was on Dec 26, in Canada. It’s an offical holiday, that has roots dating back to the 1600’s, as servants were given the day off work to visit their families. Their masters, would give them boxes, filled with gifts, money, and sometimes left over food as they departed the day after Christmas. As a teenager, I always longed for some extra cash, to get to the mall to buy my bargain. The US, I think is smarter to have their Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales before Christmas. Boxing Day sales, now extend into the week, and aren’t nearly as hectic as they once were…and dreadfully cold this week in Calgary, at -30C to be camping out all week.

What was the best thing that you received in a box, this past week? Did you get your favourite UGLY sweater??

I asked some of you, what your favourite items were that came in boxes, standard answers: #1 CHOCOLATE!! 2# JEWELRY!! Well this could be your lucky chance!

The Olivia Act -Calgary, Alberta, Canda. December 19, 2012

olivia act

Specializing in Children Photography, I was touched when I read of this tribute that a Texas photography, who decided to “give back” in her way of showing her support to the recent Newtown, Conn. massacre. She has a child named Olivia, the same name of one of the young victims, and she created the challenge “The Olivia Act” as many photograpers also decided they wanted to join up for the same cause. when they discovered what she was doing.

Her offer was to offer a free 30 min. family session with 5 digitial files, to a family that might not otherwise have images made.

We all know of the recent events that have been broadcasted Internationally. We all have been affected one way or another, even when we aren’t from the area, but realize it really could happen to anyone of us, none of us are immuned. In Newtown, Conn. at the Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec 14, 2012; 20 children where killed, as well as 6 adults. Many tears have been shed every day, since last Friday, with many of our younger children (not knowing any of the details). One of the children that was a victim was “Olivia Engel”. Her family, had recently had their family pictures taken. I’m sure they feel it’s such a treasure, to have these recent portraits of their daughter Olivia. It rings true to my heart of my own motto “Preserving Time for Generations to Come”. …or in this case, in a few weeks to come.

I have joined the ranks, with the original photographer from Texas and many many more… who has given all of us professional photographers, a place to reflect, and lift a need of another. There are many organizations in the world of photography, that do the same, such as “Now I lay me down to Sleep” for children that die prior or shortly after birth. It doesn’t necessary have to be right now, or even to honor to those that suffered in Newtown, but I think it helps many of us to heal, to reflect on the good that we have to offer and to the lasting effect that the gift of photography can bring.

I’m not posting this to help drive my business for more attention, I like my work load as is.
I like to give in many ways, did you know… a free baby session, for 1st time parents only!
I like giveaways, more will be posted soon for some fun times ahead!

So, I’m participating in the “The Olivia Act”. I’ve matching, the same offer, as what the original photograper decided on….1 FREE 30 minute session, 5, 8×12 or under mounted prints, to a family that might not otherwise have images printed or made. VALUED at $450!

Please nominate a family, by contacting me, through my website link: http://www.christinaparkerphotography.com/?page/77605/contact-us Message “Olivia Act” and leave your details. Deadline has been extended to June 30th for all nominations. Nominaee will be contacted by phone or email, local residents of Calgary only. It is non transferable. 30 Min session, will take place in summer ofy 2013, and will be either be taken in my home studio or in special circumstances, could be taken elsewhere, ie. hospital.

Please leave your comments, of why your chosen family should be nominated on my blog or on my contact us page through my website with their contact information: http://www.christinaparkerphotography.com/?page/77605/contact-us

The Nominee will be contacted via email or phone call. Please do not post their information in the comments, respect their information.

As we know this can mean so much to a family because you never know what tomorrow will bring! Thank you, Christina

 

Time to do some bragging! October 16, 2012

To prepare the scene, I had my father and my son be witnesses.  Once I got to 50 likes,  I wrote out everyone names that liked “Christina Parker Photography” small business in Calgary, Alberta.  Everyone was included to win a $10 ice cream gift card.   Those that told me of their favourite ice cream flavours, got their name written twice!  My father made sure each paper was cut to perfection, and folded into the bowl.   I held up the bowl,  and my son, pulled the winning name, and the winner is….

   Congratulations, Sarah Leishman!!  She was a lucky one that got her name entered twice, since she told me her favourite ice cream flavour was creme brulee….perhaps you can go get yourself a litre, and go hid in the bathroom, and indulge!  Congratulations! Thank you for your support… Sarah time for you to do some bragging about your winnings!    Christina
