a giveaway: because i feel like taking pictures.


[i just used this picture because i thought it was funny].

my camera is getting dusty again. i have lots of people that tell me they need some pictures, and i even have a few sessions lined up in the next few weeks, but i feel like doing some pictures just for fun. 

so i'm giving away a photo session - any kind you want. family, kids, engagements, or just because you feel like you're good looking... everyone can use more pictures of themselves.

all you need to do is enter a comment below and i'll pick a winner randomly in a few days.


if you live in the utah county area, that would be awesome...

or if you're in the bay area, california area that works too [i'll be visiting soon].

feel free to enter even if you live somewhere else. i could probably use a vacation.

this will be fun.
ready, set, go.

33 left some love.:

How about good ole' Oklahoma? Where the wind comes sweeping down the plains... don't know much about the plains, but I do know that it will blow you away if you aren't careful! :)
I would LOVE to have you take pics of my 3-year-old daughter and me together. We are in desperate need of a good Christmas card photo... hmmm.
I can even offer you a place to stay, if you don't mind sleeping in a 3-year-old's room with toys covering the floor and pink and white walls with pretty butterflies! :)
Thanks for the chance to win!

Oooh, I would love to get some family photos done! My Mom has been in a lot of pain with a back injury and it would make her so happy to have updated pictures of all her family. The last time our entire family got photos taken was over 3 years ago, and she has a new grandson (my baby!) that's not even in those pics! I have 2 cute *single* brothers too. ha ha. We're in UT county too. :)

How about Roseville, California? We're pretty close to San Fran.

Maryellen and Brandon October 20, 2009 at 2:31 PM

Hey! I'm Kristina Schroeder's sister in San Diego :) It's 75 degrees here until about February (when it will take a dip into the 60's...). You should come here and take some much needed family pics of us! Our last ones done were YEARS ago and I really, really like the ones you have on your blog (especially the one from this post - haha) :) Come to SD! Pick us!

Sare October 20, 2009 at 3:19 PM

Yay giveaway!!! I'm in Roseville but Mark and I can drive out to Fre-town. I've been meaning to anyways to see your beautiful face!! (Flattery counts bonus, right?) Plus we haven't had pictures taken since our wedding and those were pretty crappy. Sad.

Dawn October 21, 2009 at 6:23 AM  

How about Las Vegas? Garth Brooks will be here starting in December, that's a good reason! Not to mention that I'm about ready to pop and my little girl would be worth the trip. =)

Oh yeah you need to come to Seattle! We live on a little island in Puget Sound called Bainbridge. It's the one in the movies and Grey's Anatomy where they take the ferry crossing from downtown. Come visit and bring your camera!

I don't currently live in the bay area, but I might soon. I do live right near San Diego, which as we all know is a great place to vacation! I'd love to have you take photos of my family!
