Summer Giveaway!

It's almost here! Wonderful summer time, my favorite time of year. What better way to celebrate the arrival of warm weather than with a giveaway! Sure, why not? Up for grab, a photo session for you and your family. This is not your traditional sit-and-smile photo session. This is a contemporary photo session where I take candid photographs of you and your family enjoying time together and enjoying summer. Water fights, s'mores around the campfire, popsicle mustaches, swimsuits, tall glasses of lemonade...everything that makes summer so magical.

Keep in mind, this isn't your traditional photography. You must be willing to trust me and allow me to capture relaxed, fun, casual pictures that capture your family interacting and having fun together.

What you get: (1) lifestyle session + (30) 4x6 photos from your session

How to enter: Leave a comment on this post. Winner will be announced on Monday, June 1st.

Be sure to spread the word and link to this post. This one is too good to keep to yourself!!

icycoke said...

Top 10 reasons you should pick our family for your contest winner.
1. we are your best customers in Phoenix
2. we are willing to travel
3. you are the best we have ever had
4. we need the best as we are "photogenically challenged"
5. you need that kind of challenge, your subjects have been way too cute and easy lately
6. a picture is worth a thousand words but I don't have that much space
7. we have not had a professional family picture in 3 years
8. that picture is hidden so it doesn't make its way to www.awkardfamilyphotos.com (yes you should definitely check it out)
9. I have 10 more pounds to lose.....what a motivator!
10. my goal was to have the top 3 reasons and now I am already at 10

Shantell said...

We have never really had a professional family pictures (unless target counts). It would be awesome!
