First Blog Contest

And now, a contest…

Ok, the fun part!  Inspired by Amber of Heart Escapes, I’ve decided to do a blog contest.  The inspiration for this was that I really want to get to know my readers and my followers.  I have fans on Facebook and readers on here who I’ve never met and I’d like to meet you!  I also would love to hear from my friends!

So, this is a really simple contest.  Post a comment either here and/or on my Facebook Photo Page and let me know something about why you’re a fan and who you are.  It could be why you like my work, a friend of yours I’ve done a shoot with or a favorite photo.  I’m allowing each person to enter twice – once via the blog and once via Facebook, but only if you post something different in each!  I’ll also be doing a bonus deal for additional entries, but we’ll talk about that in a second.

Fabulous Prizes…

I will drawn a name at random out of all the entries and that person will receive a gift certificate for a FREE photo shoot and print package($100 value).  You can use this yourself or give it to a friend.  I’m open for family portraits, engagement photo sessions, maternity shoots, child portraits… and if you’d like to, you can use the prize for $100 off any wedding package.

Bonus entries…

As an incentive for fans to share my blog/page with their friends, I will also give each person an extra entry for every friend they refer who enters the contest.  Just have your friend mention you in their post and you’ll earn another entry (that means up to 2 entries for every referral).

Good luck to everyone, I’ll be running this contest for the entire month of June so everyone has plenty of time to enter (and also because I am getting married and will be honeymooning until July 1st, yay!)  If the contest turns out to be a big hit, I might add more prizes later, you never know!

Since it’s going to be a busy month, I won’t be posting on this blog again until after the contest, but be sure to look for updates on my Facebook Page.

Print of the Week

For those who didn’t know, print of the week is almost always a new photo, so be sure to look on my website to see everything else I’m doing.  I’ve been a busy girl!


Sometimes I think my favorite photos are the one that perfectly capture the mood and memory of a place and a time.  This one will always remind me of the 4 of us sitting in Burney, thinking it was a crazy tiny town, trying to kill time, battling exhaustion and being all grimey from camping but having a blast.
