Valentine’s Day Giveaway Winner!

March 7, 2015

There are really few things more fun than getting to shoot a client who is surprised by the session…in this case, unbeknownst to her, her daughter nominated her for my Valentine’s Day “For Singles” Giveaway.  It is an experience she likely would never had done for herself, despite the very long list her daughter gave of the things she has done for those she loves over the years.

There were so many great candidates who were nominated – by friends, family, children, and even a few who only knew of the person through a third party. I literally had to just throw them in a jar and pick. I loved all the stories so much – and the love shown by those nominating, that I have decided to do this giveaway every Valentine’s Day from now on.

I was so thrilled to get to meet and photograph this very bubbly, very real, woman. I loved how she was so thrilled – so ready to enjoy herself, even though it is something she wouldn’t have thought of doing for herself. (Her daughter had warned me that she might not even do it if she won.) I’m so glad she did!

So to Annette and her daughter – you two are a great team, and the love you feel for each other is very clear. I’m so glad I got to be a part of this special afternoon.
