THREE Years! THREE Giveaways!

Wow, time flies...  It's crazy to think that 3 years ago today I posted my very FIRST blog post announcing my photography business.  I think I've come a long way...but know that I still have a loooooong way to go, and the journey has been a blast! 

I want to say a HUGE thank-you to all of my dear family and friends who have supported me and encouraged me along the way.  I think the thing I've struggled with most is being confident in my work and my abilities.  So all of the kind words and comments that I hear have really helped buoy me up and gave me the little push I needed to try harder and keep learning!

So, I would be simply overjoyed if you'd celebrate this anniversary with me...and I'd like to offer you THREE amazing giveaways...that I hope you all would LOVE to win!


Click HERE for all the details, more pics and even a video demonstration of this awesome camera bag!

(The regular 2011 Fall Minis do NOT include the 50% discount on additional prints...
so that is an ADDED bonus to you!!!)


So how can you win?  I will gladly tell you a few ways how you can enter to win! 

(Make sure you leave a separate comment for each qualifying entry, along with your email address so I can contact you if you win!  ALSO...and this is VERY IMPORTANT!  Make sure you designate which giveaway you'd like to win, i.e., "Giveway #1" or "Giveaway 1, 2 or 3!" -- you get the picture, right?)

  1. Become a follower of this blog by scrolling down to the bottom and click on "join this site" -- then leave me a comment to let me know you did it!  Already a follower?  GREAT!  Just leave a comment letting me know you are already a follower.
  2. "Like" my business page on Facebook, then leave me a comment!  Click HERE to "Like" my Facebook page.  Already "like" my page?  Then leave me a comment letting me know!
  3. Post a link to this blog post on your FB page, then leave a comment letting me know you did it!
  4. Blog about my business and the giveaways with links back to this blog post, then leave a comment letting me know you did that - with a link to your blog please.  :)
  5. Tweet about my business and giveaways, then leave me a comment!

Ok, there ya have it.  FIVE easy ways to enter to win!  Entries will be accepted through midnight (PST), Monday, September 5th.  Winners will be announced Tuesday, September 6th.  Good Luck!

p.s. watch for news about my new website that will be launching later this week!!

I like you and I follow you - I'm glad the internet exists because if I liked you and followed you 20 years ago I could be convicted of stalking!! I love your pictures, you are super talented and I'm so proud of you that you have stuck with your business in the midst of having 3 (almost 4) active little boys :0) You're Awesome!
