The month of June will mark the first anniversary of Michael’s & my marriage, and the second anniversary of when we met; he is the man of my dreams and I knew my life would change from the moment I met him. That, combined with all the weddings & engagement sessions that I’ve been working with, and you can imagine… I am already starting to feel the love!
So, I thought it would be the perfect time to do my very first portrait giveaway that is directly related to my life as well as to my love for portraiture, and of course my love for… well, for love in general.
If you or someone you know is in a committed relationship and would like to forever document their love with a photo session as a couple, then this contest is for you! I personally know that once we are adults, and especially once the wedding is over, or even once we have children who are much cuter versions of ourselves, the chance to have portraits made of ourselves–as couples in love–is the very very very very last thing on our minds. This contest is for adults only, who in no way have to be officially married, and I don’t even care how long you two have been together, and I certainly don’t give a hoot how old you are! And it doesn’t even have to be for you; if you know a couple that totally deserves to have a special portrait made of them together, then have them enter, or enter for them!
Here is how to enter the contest (and it involves voting, so this should be fun for everyone!!!):
- Send me a personal email (email@example.com) with a photo of the couple (any photo will do), and include your love story with it.
- Go to CALIMA Portrait’s Facebook page ( http://www.facebook.com/pages/CALIMA-Portraits/62719361857?ref=ts ) and “Like” it, and while you’re at it, suggest your friends to do the same!
- I will post your photo & your love story on Facebook, where people will vote for you by clicking the “Like” icon under your photo. The couple with the most votes will be the contest winner!
Contest Prize: A photo shoot with Me (!!!), and a 16×20 or 16×16 custom-wrapped canvas, to display in your home together, and one small surprise that is too cute to let out of the bag just yet!
Contest Terms: Please have photos & stories submitted by June 9th. Voting will be held until June 16th, and then I will announce the winner! The photo session must be scheduled by June 30th, 2010, and take place by August 31st, 2010.
I can’t wait to hear everyone’s love stories… have fun, and good luck!!!
