Tuesday, January 19, 2010


Last week, while I was searching for inspiration, I was inspired by all the photos that captured love so perfectly. So in honor of the New Year, and some great news that we got about Josh, I decided to try something new this year, a little project to capture some love in my photos.

So because I LOVE, love, I love couples, and I want to push myself and do some new things this year, I’m giving you an opportunity you shouldn’t pass up. It’s a way for me to photograph more couples in love, and a way for you not only to get some great photos out of the deal, but a chance to get some free stuff as well!

The Contest: 2010 The Year of Kisses

Kisses are one of the biggest expressions of affection. We kiss as a greeting, to show respect, we kiss for good luck, and we kiss to show love! So why not show and capture that love?

So here’s the deal: If you book a session for 2010 (and you are a couple) you are eligible. This includes weddings, and engagements, and couples session. You don’t have to be engaged, or getting married to be eligible for this year’s contest. Say you’re married, and have been thinking about getting some updated photos of you and your husband (like I need to do), then take advantage, and book a session!

Dates: January 20, 2010 – December 31, 2010

What You Are Voting On: Favorite Kiss Of 2010

How It Works: Because everyone will be voting on their Favorite Kiss, and if you want to enter to win the super awesome prize at the end, you’ll need to kiss the one you love, and I’ll capture it. That shouldn’t be too hard, right? But if you don’t feel comfortable enough showing me your lip lock, we have some other options too! Get creative (but stay appropriate please), a kiss on the cheek, neck or forehead can be just as wonderful! Have some ideas on a cool place to have your session? Perfect, I’ve been wanting to shoot in some new places! Want to hang upside down and kiss your girl like spider-man? We’ll make it work! The idea is to have fun with the one you love, so you have beautiful photos to look at forever. Love is the most beautiful thing in the world, and it is meant to be captured!

After your session I will pick the photo I think is best, and enter it into the contest. In January of next year, I will post all of the “Kiss” photos on my blog to be voted on as the Favorite Kiss of 2010.

The Prize: The Winner gets a free session, and a free mounted 11x14 print of your Kiss!

So like I said, if you’ve been wanting to have some special photos of you and the one you love, make 2010 the year you allow me the honor of capturing your love, and join in the fun of 2010 The Year Of Kisses Contest.

*The free session includes: Boudoir, Engagements, and Family Sessions (up to 5 people), and Newborns.

* Prints and other products are not included.

And the 2009 Winner Is!

...Photo #13! Beka was kind enough to spend the day being my model back in the spring. I don't get to photograph many adults, so I was in need of a willing model. Beka was perfect. I loved this shot in camera, and is even better finished. It helps that Beka is absolutely beautiful Congratulations, Beka! Your print will be coming to you soon!

Exciting new things will be posted soon! Have a wonderful Thursday!

In The Works

I've got something new in the works for 2010. And I'm so excited:) When I'm finished working on it, it will be posted here! I'll leave you with this image from The Prince wedding last winter. I came across this image again and I like it more now then when I took it. Photos have a way of touching your heart in different ways at different times. Have a wonderful weekend full of kisses!
