peace on earth, goodwill toward men

Hello friends!  It's GIVEAWAY time!

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I find myself counting my blessings.  
I also find myself wanting to repeat last year's giveaway experience! 

So, what are the details?

Please nominate a family who you think is deserving of this gift. There aren't really any guidelines, but for example, it could be someone who has fallen on hard times or someone who you just really admire.

The winning family must be able to meet me within 20 miles of Huntington Beach for their session, and the session must be completed by April 30, 2011.

All of the nominations will be carefully considered and the winner will be determined by a special, 
and impartial panel of judges. (not ME!)

The winning family will receive a 1-2 hour photo session with me along with a Top 10 CD and their choice of two 8x10s or one 11x14. (total value: approx. $470)

Please send a paragraph (or more) explaining WHO you are nominating and WHY to: 

Please include your nominee's contact information (email or phone #) with your entry. 
All entries must be received by midnight on Tuesday, Nov. 30th.

The winner will be announced and contacted on Wednesday, December 1st.

**Special Note** If you'd like to remain anonymous to your nominee, 
make sure you specify that in your email to me, and I will make sure to keep it a secret!!! a BONUS this year, the person who nominates the winner will receive 50% off their next session!

I had so much fun with the family who won last year, the Holbrook family:

Here's what they had to say about their experience:

"Wow, we were so surprised to win Shari Hanson’s Holiday Photo Giveaway!  The timing couldn’t have been better.  Our oldest daughter was heading off to college and we were in desperate need of a family photo.  Combining the beautiful backdrop of the ocean with Shari’s photography expertise, the resulting family photos are more than we could have hoped for.  She captured this moment in time for us to cherish for years to come.  We will forever be grateful. Thank you for your wonderful spirit of giving Shari!  We Love You!"   - Holbrook Family

I am really looking forward to meeting and working with whoever wins this year's giveaway!!
