Pay It Forward – Photography Style
The idea to “Pay It Forward”.
Pay it forward is an expression for describing the beneficiary of a good deed repaying it to others instead of to the original benefactor. The concept is old, but the phrase may have been coined by Lily Hardy Hammond in her 1916 book In the Garden of Delight.” (Wikipedia)
Then there was the movie that came out in 2000 based on the novel of the same name. If you haven’t seen it, here’s the trailer to give you the idea:
And there’s even a website called, Pay It Forward Day, dedicated to stirring people up and keeping it moving, which you can view here.
Well, here’s the Jodi Byles Photography version, a $150 photography session discount to be passed from one person to another. From anyone to anyone! Doesn’t sound like much? Well it could amount to a completely free Maternity Session including 5 digital images! You can always check my pricing pageto see the difference it would make to the various sessions.
It will all start with a competition on Social Media to see who gets the first one. Then, it’s up to them to pass it on.
The front of the voucher says,
Gift this voucher to someone who needs it, not necessarily a friend or family member but someone who may be having a hard time & needs a boost, someone who you feel deserves a gift, or perhaps a complete stranger down the street. The only rule is to pass it on.”
Here’s how it works:
- First person gets the voucher and uses it to get $150 off any photography session with Jodi Byles Photography.
- They put their name on the back of the voucher and pass it on to the next person who contacts me, books in their photo session, and MUST bring the voucher with them.
- They put their name on the back after their session and hand it on to the next person, and so on and so forth until 10 people have used it.
Question: “What happens if someone doesn’t use it, or doesn’t pass it on?”
Answer: Well, it stops. Which would be a shame, but that’s the nature of the gift. It’s up to whoever has it to keep it going.
Call it a social experiment, call it a gift. Either way it’s my way of giving something back and watching it come around again and again and again… (hopefully)
Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” – Mark Twain
