funds for nie!

As many of you avid Nie Nie Dialogues readers know, Stephanie and Christian Nielson of Mesa were in a private plane crash on August 16th. They are currently stable, but still critical condition. Stephanie has the worst of it- with severe burns covering 80% of her body she will need to spend months in the hospital recovering while her children live with family in Utah.

Since today is the official NIE NIE DAY I decided to join in on the fund raising fun by auctioning off a family (or baby or engagement- whatever) mini session (that's a 30 minute shoot with the 5 best images on a cd), a $75 value.
The best part? I will schedule the winner whenever they want! no waiting for availability in November like everyone else- Priceless.  To bid, leave a comment with a bid amount RIGHT HERE on this post! The auction will end this SUNDAY AT MIDNIGHT.
I will contact the winner, who can pay up at the Stephanie Nielson Recovery Fund and send me a reciept.
STARTING BID IS ONE DOLLAR!! Happy Bidding!

It's so great that you are doing this Jess! It's amazing how many people are so touched by NieNie's story. NieNie is the sister-in-law to my boss so I too have been doing what I can to help. I just had to say Thank You!!!
