In an effort to give back to those who have given so much to me, I am proud to announce that I will be giving significant discounts to my personal heroes.
Teachers: Thank you for everything that you do. Thank you for pouring your soul into educating so many who are ungrateful, disrespectful, and flat out mean. Thank you for noticing the shy kid in the corner and making them feel included. Thank you for being the front line in dangerous situations to protect children who are not your own. And thank you for spending countless hours and much of your own money on making our kids' lives better. Please accept my gift of 15% off any photoshoot for all of the work that you do.
First Responders: It takes a strong person to run towards a situation that everyone else is running away from. It takes a strong person to witness death, abuse, destruction- and still show up to work everyday. It takes a strong person to save a life, knowing that it can end yours. For the police officers, fire fighters, and paramedics out there- thank you for being so strong. Thank you for protecting my family, and thank you for savings lives so selflessly. Please accept my gift of 20% off any photoshoot for being so brave.
Military (active and retired): Your sacrifice for this country is nothing short of heroic. You have sacrificed your safety, important life moments, time with loved ones, security, and countless other items that we at home can't even imagine. You sacrifice all of this to protect your country and the values that we hold dear... but that we also complain about incessantly. You make these sacrifices because it's needed, and without people like you, I wouldn't even want to imagine what our country would be like. Thank you for being so heroic and for protecting my family, this country, and those who cannot protect themselves. Please accept my gift of 25% off any photoshoot for your sacrifice.
I could never repay the debt owed to you for your hard work, bravery, and sacrifice- but I hope you accept my discounts as a sliver of gratitude that you deserve.
