So, I’m sort of a photo snob. I dream of lenses while other’s dream of sex. I love capturing my little ones in their element. Even though Dave and I aren’t swapping gifts this Christmas, and even though I already have a high caliber, expensive lens for my SLR, I want an even BETTER lens. Until then, and specifically for Christmas shots, I’m gonna have to hand it to the pros (even though he doesn’t REALIZE the lens would pay for itself after one XMas). Anyway…
This year was a no brainer. One of my neighbors, who does outstanding photography specifically working with children, immediately came to mind. She was patient, flexible, understanding, hysterical, and clever (Heck, I even arrived at the location with an Apple Martini and shaker, as I was just there for the ride! It was SOOOO not stressful, as typically photo sessions are with all of the little peeps involved [esp. "the" Xmas picture one]. My kids listened to Stephanie, while Dave and I just sat back and laughed.
After you take a look at our amazing full, 60 minute session with Stephanie Brown Photography — and realizing “Oh crap, didn’t even realize it’s almost mid-November, and… oh crap, I have to get Xmas cards taken!!!” — I’m honored to let you know that two (local to Raleigh / Wake Forest, NC) lucky winners will win the following:
- One mini-session (approx. 30 minutes) for only $75 (ridiculous discount). Included:
- You will be able to review all of the images taken during the shoot, online
- You will choose ten (10) of your favorites, which Stephanie will then enhance
- You will be given the High-Res *.jpg images of each of the ten (10) images you choose. You will be able to print/duplicate them as you want, with written permission from her (have you ever heard of a photographer who actually offers that?). If you’d like the High-Res files of addt’l images, you may order a la carte.
- Limited slots available! Here are the 2 times slots the winners will fill:
- Sunday, November 14th (as in THIS Sunday!)
- Slot #1 at 3:00
- Slot #2 at 3:45
**Immediate Family Members only, please (meaning, just children with/without their parents… if you’re anything like me, I wind up only choosing the pics I look good in, irregardless of the children — which is a horrible thing to do. So, I typically go only get shots of the children taken).
** Payment needs to be made prior to the session
