I love giving stuff away… outgrown clothes, handmade gifts… cookies… photoshoots! I don’t do it often, but it makes me feel great to hook a family up with pictures that capture their life as it is right now, something they may otherwise kind of miss out on. I mean, really… how often does mom end up in the group pictures (or dad, if he’s the primary photographer of the family)? In my case… like, never! I can count on one hand the number of pictures I have with my children… and I don’t even really like me in them. But whatever. Moms take one for the team… (everyday… multiple times a day… )but anyway…
I ran a giveaway a couple of weeks ago for a Family Photo Shoot and a CD with images… I got one entry (yeah, one, but I’m not taking it personal). Awesome Sauce for the Orr Family! She sent in her family picture and her reasons for wanting me to take her family pictures… this is what she said,
“We would love to receive your photo shoot because you are an absolutely amazing photographer. In our whole marriage we have not had a professional photo shoot and it would be so fun to be able to display your photos in our home! The way you find the beauty in everyone and their personality make us smile every time! Please pick the Orr family!”
Well… I pick the Orr Family!!!
I’m thrilled to pieces! How cute are they?!?! We’ll have a blast and get some amazing shots, I just know it!
For everyone kicking themselves for not giving the Orr Family a little competition… make sure you’re following me on Facebook for real-time updates so you know to enter next time!!!
Also, for those of you on Kaua’i, I will be doing a giveaway for you guys when I know when I’ll be there next!! Woot! Woot!
