100 fan photo shoot contest

Details on entering are bolded in the middle of this post.

A few months ago I started up a facebook page for this business.  I didn't want to send the mass invite out to everyone on my friends list because I just thought it might be annoying.  So, I sent an invite to my closest friends and my friends who have also been customers.  Then I went to work on building up my facebook followers from people who are my customers and/or people who "like" my page because they like my work.  My first goal was to get to 100 fans and to get through the final push I said I would give away a free photo shoot when I hit 100 fans.  I am now at 102!  Yay!  Thank you all who have taken the time to visit my facebook page and this blog and peek around at my work!
I love what I do.  First off, I am a mom.  I love being able to be home with my kids.  They drive me nuts from time to time, but where is the fun in sane living all the time???  Because we decided to have me stay home with the kids I have been able to pursue this photography business I have always wanted to do.  I love being a photographer!  I am privileged to be able to capture wonderful memories for people.  I am always so thrilled to know that someone loves their pictures and that I have created something for them that they can cherish forever.  My goals with this business are to continue to become better with my photography, bless people with pictures they will love, and use this business and any success it may have to contribute positively to this world.  My approach to this business is that I am just going to take it one step at a time, and getting to 100 followers on facebook was my first little baby step goal I set for myself.  So in celebration of reaching my first goal I am giving away a free shoot.  It will include a photo shoot, my time in post processing your images, and you will get back 15 high resolution images on a disk.


To enter you must like me on facebook AND you must comment on this blog.  It can be anything, your comment just lets me know you want to be entered.
That's it, simple.


If you want extra entries you can do one or all of the following:


1. Post about this contest to your facebook page to let your friends know they can enter.  Then tell me your did so.
2. If you keep your own blog you can do a blog post linking people back to this contest page and then send me the link of your blog post.
3. You can donate a minimum of $5 to the victims of the Joplin, MO tornadoes.  This is a good faith entry, tell me you donated and I will believe you.  One extra entry for a donation of any amount over $5, give what you can, you do not have to disclose the amount to me.  If you have already given, that counts, just tell me you did.


Contest will end midnight PST Thursday June, 16.  The free session is good until June 17, 2012.  And just like the last contest, if you live out of the area and know someone in the Seattle area you are free to gift this shoot to a friend.

Thanks again to all my wonderful customers and to all who take the time to look at my work.
