In celebration of EIGHT years photographing fun-loving families and children, I thought I’d do something BIG! Like, giving one lucky family a photography session + digital files, BIG! Instead of making you “like” me on facebook, share my page or tweet something, I thought we could make a positive impact on the community. Which is why, with your help, I’m collecting new or gently used children’s books for High Risk Hope’s BOOKS for BABIES drive!

You might be wondering why High Risk Hope collects books for preemies and if I didn’t have twins that spent three weeks in the NICU, I might wonder myself too. Premature babies face so many challenges early on. Delays in development, especially in speech and language development are known risks. The great news, several studies show that there are many benefits to parents reading to their premature infant in the NICU… an increase in their language abilities, feeding tubes being removed sooner than other preemies and a shorter NICU stay. Being provided children’s books from High Risk Hope is truly a blessing because when you’re faced with the overwhelming stress and uncertainties of having a premature infant in the NICU, purchasing books is probably the last thing you’re thinking about. By donating a book you’re touching the lives of those in your community, big and small.

For every book donated, your name will be entered to win a photography session + the digital files from the session. This could be a session for the family, just the kiddos, your senior, you and your spouse or your four-legged fury family members.

Books must be received on or before Monday, February 15th. One winner will be announced on Tuesday, February 16th at 9am EST!

Questions you might have…

Q: If I donate more than one book, does my name get entered more times?
A: Great question! And, yes, your name will be entered equally to the amount of books you donate.

One Book = One Entry
Two Books = Two Entries
Three Books = Three Entries
Four Books = Four Entries
Five Books = Five Entries
Okay, I might be getting a little ahead of my self, but…
One Hundred Books = One Hundred Entries

I’m sure you get the point. :-)

Q: How do I get the books to you?
A: You can mail them to me, drop them off on my porch or plan a meet-up. The post office does give a shipping discount when sending books domestically, mention MEDIA MAIL. If you are wanting to mail them or drop them by, email me at info@kristieserra.com for the address.

Q: Where will the session take place?
A: The session will take place in either the Tampa Bay or Seattle area. If in Tampa, the session will take place between March 1st and October 31st, 2016. If in Seattle, the session will take place during the summer months (July/August, 2016).

If you have any other questions, please email me at info@kristieserra.com.E_01 books-for-babies E_02

Until next time.
