Midwest Photographers (IA, IL, KS, MN, MO, NE, WI)


Last year was our first For the Love of Preemies, and I was amazed at all the photographrs that stepped up to the plate, and am again overwhelmed this year!!   Keri Meyers Photography helped put the word out that I was looking for a few photographers to donate a session, or a gift certificate or anything to spread some cheer to preemie families across the nation.  I know we were blessed with amazing insurance to cover ongoing medical costs, but not everybody is so lucky and as you know, professional photography can be costly!

The response was overwhelming…and so many across the US, Canada and even a photographer in New Zealand have donated time, waived session fees or an entire package again this year!

If you know a preemie family in an area with photographers, please let them know about this giveaway…don’t let the generosity of the photographers go to waste!!  And my one caveat, other than Keri Meyers Photography, I have never used any of these photographers but can tell you I LOVED looking at all the fantastic pictures on them!!

TO ENTER:  First and foremost…YOU MUST BE A FAMILY WITH A PREEMIE…they don’t have to be newborn, but they had to be a preemie.  Then just click on the Rafflecopter entry below!  You can check out who is in your area first by the listing below. ;)
