REVITALIZE YOU YYC MASSIVE $3000 GIVEAWAY
Who will ever forget March 2020? It was the longest month any of us can remember. The sudden and then extended isolation has taken it's toll. Now, it's time to shrug off those isolation blues and revitalize our lives!
Why not celebrate with a MASSIVE GIVEAWAY?
The thing is, I love to collaborate with other small businesses, especially when their values align with mine.
So, that's what I did! I got together (virtually) with two of my best entrepreneur friends, Louise Hopkin (The Space Reclaimers) and Dr. Lindsay Nealon, B.Sc., D.C. (The Wellness Studio).
Together, we are running a campaign called, "Revitalize You Giveaway". The main prize is worth $3000! The winner will receive $1000 to spend with each of us! It's all about revitalizing your home, your body and your family!
Louise is all about helping people to live a more calm and fulfilling life by letting go of clutter and embracing your best life.
To Louise, getting you organized is not about making it all pretty - it's about making it work for you. That's what I love so much. Her goal is centred around the people she helps and making their lives truly better. The improved looks of your organized home is a nice side benefit! She's helped me on multiple occasions, so I do speak from experience.
For example: in a single day, Louise and her assistant came in and helped me transform my kitchen into a clutter-free, functional space. The best part? They took all my donations and garbage away, so the job was ALL DONE!
I found working with Louise to be a really energizing and inspiring experience that has had a lasting positive effect on me. My home looks better, of course, but the real benefit is in having less stress and anxiety that comes with too much stuff.
This is what I mean by 'aligning with my values'. Louise is not just there to 'do a job', she's there to help a person, help their family. And it's not surface stuff, like tips and tricks (though she's definitely got great ones!), it's deeper, more transformative than that. These are things that really resonate with me and that's why I'm so thrilled that she collaborated with me on this giveaway!
I've known Lindsay forever. Lindsay is someone who knows herself. She is unapologetically authentic in every way and I love that about her! She exudes warmth and compassion and always has positive things to say. She is a bucket-filler.
When you visit Lindsay's office, it's a place where children and babies are very welcome. You'll often see entire families in the waiting room. And pre-Covid times, Linda Mae (front desk) would often be found holding a patient's baby so that patient could get her adjustment or massage treatment.
I love that Lindsay has focused right in on Moms and babies - the heart of a family. She helps women through pregnancy and postpartum and she can treat patients from infancy and beyond.
I've always travelled across town to visit Lindsay and I've never hesitated to do so. When you find a health care provider that is this exceptional, that's just a no-brainer.
If you're into wellness, Lindsay is the chiropractor for you. The Wellness Studio is conveniently located in the NW, close to the intersection of 16 Ave and 14th St.
Right now is a truly unique opportunity for documenting your family.
We are literally living through a moment in history that will be talked about for hundreds of years. The Global Pandemic of 2020. Your grandchildren will probably have a school project on the topic a few decades from now. How cool would it be to pull the old album off the shelf and share some stories from this time in your life?
My promise to my clients.
treat your photographs like they were my own
see beauty in your life and show it back to you
create heirlooms that you will treasure forever
I'm really not a surface-level kind of person and I think that's why I'm drawn to documenting real family life. It's the good stuff.
For me, it's the difference between small talk conversation or deep, meaningful conversation. Documentary photography is deep and meaningful. It's finding something intangible that exists between people who love each other. Families are filled with connection like this and I love to capture that, so they'll have it forever.
