giveaway: family photo shoot

i am thrilled about today's giveaway. i hoped to offer a grandiose giveaway for mother's day and, thanks to ginnie, this is better than i could've dreamed up myself. if you're located in utah or can get there in time for a photo shoot, you are qualified to drop your name in for a chance to win a professional photo shoot with the lovely and talented ginnie j. (if you're stuck in wisconsin, don't worry, there will be another giveaway tomorrow for non-locals.) whether you are a mom or have a mom or want to be a mom or are married to a mom, please chime in.








ginnie specializes in photography. she captures family moments in the great outdoors and has a talent for getting babies to smile. even if it's past their bedtime. a few weeks ago we met up with ginnie for a family photo shoot of our own. i loved the results. lets just say i wish i could take her along every time we head out. not only for the fabulous shots but she is marvelous company too. her cheerful personality makes it easy to be yourself and have fun. believe me, she brings out the easy breezy cover girl from within. i love the natural lighting in her photos and her creative poses for family portraits. she has a magic touch when it comes to creating a perfect atmosphere for shooting.

ginnie is generously offering a family photo shoot to one lucky winner. place a comment on this post to enter. (if you do not have a blog or your blog is private, please include your email in your comment.) comments are open until saturday / may 9 / midnight / mountain time. a random winner will be announced after the weekend. you can read more about ginnie on her hilarious blog or in her on the spot interview.

giveaway details:

• A couple, family or child session (not extended family).
• 1 hour of shoot time on location, in the beautiful state of Utah.
• 15-20 edited full resolution images on CD with a copyright release.
• one 11x14 mounted print of your choice.
* Photo shoot must occur before october 31, 2009.
