The One Year {CONTEST}!!!

Posted by on Nov 4, 2011 in Promotions, Uncategorized | 146 comments

Well, it seems that October has come and gone, and my business has officially turned one. :) To celebrate, I thought a contest would be fun. And, since this celebration wouldn’t be happening without my fabulous clients, this contest is all about you. (Newborn clients, I am doing a separate contest for you all later this month- I am waiting for one more cutie pie to feature. So, don’t feel left out. I am saving all of that brand-new cuteness for just a bit later!)

So, for all the clients I photographed for child and family sessions this year, here is your chance to win a 16×20 Gallery Wrapped Canvas!!! This is a $300 value! You can choose a favorite image from a past session, or we can snap a few updated portraits during a 45-minute minisession (Odenton, Annapolis, Baltimore, or Columbia area). I’ll give you 5-10 images to choose from and I’ll even throw in the low-resolution images for ‘ya to download, so you can print as many 4×6 or 5×7 prints as you’d like. How’s that for a celebration?!?

To vote, complete the steps below:

1) “Like” Pamela Cartee Photography on Facebook here (I will check) and feel free to leave a little love on my wall! If you previously completed step 1, skip to step 2. :)

2) ¬†Subscribe to my newsletter if you haven’t already done so. :)

3) Scroll through the images below and then comment on this blog post with the image # that gets your vote.

4) Pass it on!! Tell your family and friends to vote for you! Feel free to write on your Facebook wall, write e-mails, call your friends, whatever you have to to get votes. This is all in good fun, but let’s keep it fair. Make sure you tell your family and friends to only vote once. One random commenter will win a $10 Startbucks giftcard e-mailed to them. Gingerbread latte, anyone? Commenters should leave their first and last names (or at least last initial) so that I can announce the winner.

One vote per person, please. No entries after Thursday, November 10 at 9 p.m. EST. The five families with the most number of votes will be entered into a drawing for the canvas (and minisession + low-res images). The winner will be announced on Friday, November 11!

Now, in no particular order, here’s a trip down memory lane.
