Giveaway Day 5: Armenian Folk Music

Operating a small business is work well loved but often hard and lonely with little support.  So during my “big” birthday month, I’m going to be sharing with you some wonderful businesses and each of them will be giving away one thing to one lucky person.

I’m sharing these small businesses because my heart is with the business owner struggling to make it, but really passionate about serving people.  Any given day, I may fit that description. 😉

This month I’m offering a Newborn Special coupled with a chance to win free sessions.  If you’re expecting a little one, read this post for details.

Here is a link to all of the giveaways I’m hosting this month.

And now let me tell you a little bit about today’s small business owner.

Mariam Matossian

I really got to know Mariam last year when I photographed her newborn Lazaro.  She has a beautiful family with the most darling little girls, little Lazaro, and the most hilariously sarcastic husband I’ve ever met.

Mariam has recorded some of the most beautiful music I have ever heard.  It’s Armenian Folk Music: songs her grandmother sang to her mother and her mother sang to her.  Songs Mariam sings to her three beautiful little ones.  I often listen while I’m editing a session.  It’s so soothing and fun.

Mariam also tells these hard stories of the Armenian genocide intertwined with faithful hope on her blog and right alongside these precious snippets of her own life.  It’s such wonderful reading.
