Thank you, each and every one of you, for being a part of my life in 2009. You encouraged me, "followed" me, spread the word about me, and allowed me to capture images of your loved ones. I realize that there are many talented photographers out there for you to choose from, which is all the more reason why I am grateful that you chose ME! I love getting to know you and I feel so lucky to be able to photograph your little ones and to be a part of documenting your family history... to leave you with something both beautiful and tangible for you and your family to enjoy for many years to come.
So along with my heartfelt thanks, I thought it would be fun to run a contest and I do hope you'll play! I went through all the images taken in 2009 and selected some of my favorites, which you now get to vote for. Feel free to vote for your own image and by all means, get your friends and family to vote for you too! To vote, just leave a comment on this blog letting me know which image is your favorite. To keep things fair, only one vote per email please!
The lucky winner with the most votes will receive ***drumroll please*** a 16x20 mounted wall portrait PLUS a free session in 2010!!*
Contest begins now and ends January 3, 2010 at 11:59 PM PST. Good luck, and again.... thank you for your continued support! To see the entries, please click here or go to http://tokileephoto.zenfolio.com/2009contest and then come back to this blog to leave a comment. And since no post is complete without an image, I'll leave you with the boys rocking out to Rock Band Beatles.
*Session fee waived and no print credit or discount will be applied to order. Session must be held by August 31, 2010.
A special thank you to Melissa Miller for sharing her great idea! Now, go vote and tell all your friends and family to vote too. Good luck!
