10 in 10 | Traci Shupert Photography

Who: Anyone
What: 10 sessions in 2010
Where: Locations throughout the Michiana area
When: February - November, 2010

The last several months, I've been thinking about how I can use what I've been given. The lyrics of a song, Follow You by Leeland, have been on my mind for many days and nights.

You lived among the least of these, the weary and the weak
And it would be a tragedy for me to turn away.

All my needs You have supplied
When I was dead You gave me life
How could I not give it away so freely?

Today, as I was riding to church, I was struck with the idea, 10 in 10. Why not donate 10 sessions in 2010? There are many great charitable organizations (like Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep, The Littlest Heroes Project, Think Pink, etc.) that create opportunities for photographer's to donate their time and talent. I've thought about joining each of those organizations (and I still might), but I would like to give 10 in 10 a chance this year.

Here's the 411:
I'm looking for anyone (families, children, newborns, expecting mothers and fathers, high school seniors, engaged couples, military families, etc.) who may not be able to afford custom portrait photography, who are survivors, who have served our country proudly, who have made a difference in the lives of others, who are in the fight for their lives...anyone.

If you know someone or are someone who would like to be considered for one of the 10 in 10 sessions, send your story to:

Here's what each 10 will receive:
-Up to 2 hours of on location coverage
-Online gallery to view images and share with family & friends
-10 of their favorite images edited and ready to print on a CD
-A 4x6 print of each image in the gallery
-One 8x10 print of their favorite image

I will be taking nominations throughout the entire year. I will announce the first 10 on February 1st, and thereafter on the first of every month through November. Please contact me if you have any further questions.

P.S. I thought today was the perfect day to kick this off since it is 1-10-10! :)

Love, love, love this idea Traci! I have a feeling I may be able to get you a name or two. You are amazing!

I think this is a great idea. A family came to mind that I don't really even know, but it's the Jernas family that goes to our church. Their little girl, (who is probably about 4 yrs old) Maggie, has been battling cancer for almost a year now. You can read more about her on this website Like I said, I don't even know them, so I'm not sure if they've had pictures taken recently or anything, but they just came to mind when I read your post!
