Blog Party - Day 5

A week-long party. Its been fun. I hope you have enjoyed the contests and prizes. Now on to what everyone really wants to hear about...the winners. All the winners can expect an email from me in the next day or two!

Monday - Favorite Photo
2nd place - Can you believe its a three-way tie?!?! # 4, #8 and #10 all have the same number of votes. They will all win a 5x7!

1st place - #12. This couple will receive a 11x14 of this image and have the opportunity for another 11x14 from a future session.

Thank you to everyone for voting and all of the nice comments.

Tuesday - Random Comment = iTunes!

Congratulations to commenter #3 - Christine! And no, her comment about Duke had NO bearing on the result of the contest!

Wednesday - dm Photography Gift Certificate
This was way harder than I expected. All of the submissions I received were so sweet! I didn't think it would be so hard to select one.

A couple celebrating 25 years of marriage (PS- Happy Anniversary Mom & Dad - YES, my mom entered to win - she's so cute!!).

A letter about new love, separated by many miles and no nice photos to make the distance more bearable (and I won't embarrass the couple by showing the 3 photos that were sent to me).

A list of all the reason why a couple celebrating their first wedding anniversary needs more photos together.

But, maybe its because I have a little girl. And maybe I can't imagine her starting kindergarden, losing her first tooth, or getting her driver's license, let alone graduating from high school. I am so happy to say that Theresa has won the $250 gift certificate. Her essay was so heart touching, it brought tears to my eyes. I found this one line so strikingly true..."I was so proud without knowing the future. " I can't wait to meet you, your daughter & the rest of your family!

Thursday - 3-2-1 Quiz
Congratulations to Amanda for winning the GAP gift card. I love my frequent blog visitors.

And THANK YOU to all of the families I've had the honor of photographing over the past year. I have truly enjoyed meeting your children and spending time with your family. It means so much to me that you have trusted me to capture your special moments. THANK YOU!!
