It's time kick off the Christmas Photo Contest!

The Christmas Photo Contest has been cancelled due to an insufficient amount of votes.  In lieu of this activity, we will be raffling off an extra gift certificate along with the Mini Session on December 20th.  If you came to the fundraiser, please be sure to get your photos selected by then.  Thank You!

Morgan and Eva

Hickey Sneak Peak

I thought about saying how much fun it was reconnecting with this couple after shooting their wedding two years ago.  But I think only a couple people would have gotten my humor, knowing they are actually my sister and brother-in-law.  We weren't exactly "reconnecting" after two years.... but it was a lot of fun!  That is, after I found the location we were meeting at.  (I won't tell you how late I was ;)  I had never shot at Cathedral Park but have seen many pictures taken there, so when my sister-in-law made the suggestion I was super excited to try it out.  I was also filled with joy when the Lord gave us a rain/snow break for just long enough to complete our session, especially since it gave more purpose to my late arrival! Mrs. H, this one's just for you, I know you have been waiting! ;)

Sydney B. Preview

I think the hardest part of my job is going through all the cute pictures and only selecting a few... I have a soft spot for babies, I think, because Sydney gets two previews! 

One More Preview and the Winner of the Digital Photo Frame Announced...

All participants in the Christmas Photo Fundraiser were entered to win one of two neat prizes.  If you paid in advance for extra photos, you were given one extra entry per additional image purchased.  The first prize goes to Mrs. Callahan, winner of a brand new digital photo frame.  Congratulations, Mrs. Callahan! 

The Mini Session is lined up to be awarded next.  Anyone who decides there are just too many great images to choose from will also be given one additional entry per image purchased.  And the best part about it is 100% of the money still goes to 1hope!  So enjoy your previews. Lots more coming at you in these next couple days!!!

Steyn Family Teaser

Talk about a perfect day for pictures.  So glad this family contacted me before Grandma and Grandpa head back home to South Africa.  It was a quick last minute booking as I had some time clear up for one last mini session this year.  Thanks for sharing this very fitting (for your fun and beautiful family) location.  This is the last preview I'm working on before I get started on all of those Christmas photos from the fundraiser.  Check back tomorrow night for some more posts... and more info on how to vote for the Christmas Photo Contest!
