Local Photographer Oana Hogrefe Announces 2012 Childhood Calendar Model Search
Local Photographer Oana Hogrefe Announces 2012 Childhood Calendar Model Search


Local photographer Oana Hogrefe of Oana Hogrefe Photography, a boutique studio providing insightful and genuine portrait imagery of children, babies and families, announces a model search for the 2012 edition of the Childhood Calendar. 

Each year, Hogrefe donates her time and photography skills to create a calendar to benefit a local child-centric charity. Last year’s Childhood Calendar raised $5,630 for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. This year’s beneficiary is Jack and Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation (JAJF), an organization that provides unique retreats and memory books to families with a parent suffering from late stage cancer.

The Childhood Calendar will feature 12 months of evocative, impactful images of children. This year’s theme is “Faces of childhood” and will focus on the beauty and expressivity of each child, the pure emotions shared by children everywhere.

Hogrefe will waive her session fee for these special photography sessions. The applicant will only pay $95, which will go entirely towards the Childhood Calendar project, and receive a 35 minute session and a 5X7 print. The sessions will take place in June and August 2011. Space is limited and will be filled upon approval on a first come, first served basis.

The final selection of the 12 images to be featured in the calendar will take place in September 2011. One image per family, chosen by Oana Hogrefe Photography, will be entered into an online voting contest. The top 12 winning images will be guaranteed a featured month in the calendar.

The calendar will become available for purchase in fall 2011, and all net profits from the online voting and the sale of calendars will go to JAJF.

Applicants can e-mail oana@shutterview.com to register. More application details can be found at this link or at www.childhoodcalendar.com.
