Kirstie Marie Photography is encouraging fans to nominate an inspirational person for the chance for them to win an incredible photography package worth $1,895.  The nominees can be trainers, youths, amateurs, show parents, youth advisers, or anyone involved in the industry that they feel creates a positive impact on others.

When asked what made her create such a wonderful promotion, she told us, “The Novice Championships & Congress generate a lot of negativity that spreads like a viral internet wildfire. While some of the complaints are valid, I see too many that are mean-spirited. Condescending comments (and shares/likes) can paralyze those who genuinely love this sport and want to see it advance. The only way I know how to fight internet bullying is to replace it with positive thoughts and words.”

“I wanted a way to encourage and reinforce those in the industry who are shining lights. The response I’ve seen so far is overwhelming and incredibly genuine. There are a lot of great people in the equine industry, and I can’t wait to share some of these stories to give the spotlight to those who deserve it.”

October also happens to be National Bullying Prevention Month, and Jones feel one of the best ways to combat internet bullying (which can translate to offline) is to promote more positivity in our industry.  To recognize the people who are genuine lights in the horse world, nominations have a chance to win a Diamond Session with the talented photographer to take place to North Texas in early 2016. 

Those wishing to make a nomination should email their name and a paragraph on how this person expires them to
