We are so fortunate to be friends with an amazing (and now local!) photographer. She was inspired to create the S.I.P. (Service is Painless) Project. The SIP Project is basically a pay-it-forward, she takes beautiful pictures of you for free and you pay-it-forward with a service project of your choice. I can't say enough about this project - it's brilliant and wonderful and inspiring.
DeAnn, the SIP creator, took pictures of my kids way back in October. We finally got our end of the bargain completed and the final results can be found by following this link. You can help this project out in two (or three) very simple ways: First, follow her blog. And second, leave questions or comments for her. Third, if you're local, sign up for the SIP Project. You won't regret it!
