If your family, or you know of a family that is in need, during the COVID-19 health crisis, please reach out to Rebecca for assistance. See ad below...
We are looking to build a library of photos showcasing Door County families. We would like family pictures and pictures of families participating in local events and activities, having a discussion, or even just spending time in Door County nature. The pictures can be of the entire family unit or any combination of family members. Photos of your children sleeping, playing, eating, at any age are also appreciated. We have posts regarding different subjects on our website and currently use stock photos but would love to make the whole site very local.
The photos will be used on the doorcountyparents.com website but we will not list any personal information with the image. If you are submitting professional images we will need proof of the photographer's permission for use and their information to give proper credit.
That can be as simple as an email sent to you, forwarded to us, from the photographer, where they state they give permission for the photo(s) to be used on doorcountyparents.com. We will give credit to the photographer if they don't have a logo on the image already.
Please understand that submission of your photos by email to rebecca@unitedwaydc.com with subject line "pics for doorcountyparents.com" does not guarantee use but will act as a photo release and automatically grants permission to use the photos on our website. Again, we will not use your photos in any other capacity without prior permission. THANK YOU!
Please contact Rebecca Nicholson at 920-421-3145 with any questions.
