The Olivia Act

January 04, 2013  •  Leave a Comment


I am proud and honored to be participating and donating my talents to the Olivia Act.  The Olivia Act is a dedication to Olivia Engel and the other children who lost their lives in the Sandy Hook school tragedy.

Before Olivia’s tragic death, her family had professional family photos taken and as I’m sure you can imagine, these pictures are priceless to them.  The Olivia Act was established for Photographers to give back to a family who is not in the position to pay for a professional family photo shoot for financial or other hardship reasons such as illness.  Hundreds of photographers all over the world are taking part and donating their services for free.  A photographer I know just photographed a family who had lost all of their worldly possessions including photos in a house fire.  The family was moved to tears when they received their gift of family photos totally free of charge.

You can help by sending me an e-mail with the name of a family* you feel deserves a free family portrait session and include why they should receive this gift.  I will accept nominations for family portraits and one family will be chosen after reviewing their personal story.

Send nominee’s name, contact info and reason why they are deserving of a free portrait session to the following e-mail address:
oscar  "at"  oscardean   "dot"  com
or reach me through the "Contact" link on this website.

The family will receive the following at no cost:

One hour photo session
Complete image editing
High & low resolution images on a disk
Copyright release (Will enable family to have photos printed at a local printer).
