Wednesday, November 18, 2009

I am the Tulsa/Bartlesville Area Coordinator for this years National Model Search by Sandy Puc and NILMDTS. Below is the flyer that I will be sending out to camera stores, and any photographer interested. If you would like a flyer and be part of the model search to earn a chance to win some great prize and also the family that is chosen wins a BRAND NEW CAR!! This is a great way to not only help promote your business but it is also a wonderful way to spread the word about a really amazing charity.

Those who are interested for a flyer please email me at sadonna@sadonnalynnphotography with the subject titled NILMDTS FLYER and put your name and address in the box and I will mail that out as soon as I can. This is not just for photographers in my area. I can send it to any one in the United States.


Registration has begun for the 2010 International Charity Model Search to select North America's Cutest Family and to raise funds for the non-profit Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep Foundation ( Last year's competition featured 2,000 model's images and raised $164,775 for the NILMDTS organization.

Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep (NILMDTS), is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization committed to assisting parents and families going through the difficult time when they experience an early infant loss. NILMDTS connects families with volunteer photographers and provides them with a reproducible CD of the images of their baby at no cost to the family.

The grand prize international winner will be determined from the 52 city finalist. Many exciting prizes will be awarded, and the grand prize winner receives a new car. The winners will be selected from the finalist gallery by photography and modeling industry experts. The winning family also receives a session with the renowned portrait artist Sandy Puc' and international recognition.

Sandy Puc', Model Search sponsor, has long believed charitable work is the backbone of the community. She created this contest to highlight excellence in the portrait photography industry as well as raise funds for NILMDTS, the organization she co-founded in 2005.

Braxton had so much fun a few weeks ago playing in the leaves. Hard to believe he is already 6 months old. We had so much fun and could not ask for the best nephew ever.
