Happy New Year! Engagement Portrait Giveaway (and mini sessions still available)

Here comes 2010! I am super excited about this year, are you?

And here is a little gift to some lucky couple - somewhere out there -

Woohoo! I had such a great time reading everyone's ideas last year, and the winning shoot was such a rad success, that I wanted to do it again this year. What will this year's entries bring??

Now - a few new rules - and a few of the same ones -

For this year's contest, I am still looking to give away one free engagement (or any couple, or newlywed, or best friends, or 50th anniversary) session to a lucky pair. And I would still love to hear your most creative, fun ideas and locations and props and color schemes, whatever comes to mind. BUT I will need to stick relatively close to home this year - so please keep in mind that I will be 7 or 8 months pregnant for this shoot ;) and propose locations accordingly. While I want to explore an exciting location and idea, I would love to keep it to Sonoma County (although anywhere in the Bay Area is open game), and I will probably not be scaling any mountains with camera gear. But this doesn't mean we have to do a boring shoot - sometimes it's easiest to be creative within a set of restrictions, so I hope to get lots of great ideas!

To enter, just email ( your ideas to me in the next 2 weeks. I will choose a winning session on Friday January 15th, and will schedule the shoot for late January or early February (possibly late February if it works best for everyone's schedules).

You can be a current client, former client, potential client, a friend or a stranger. You must be willing to sign model releases for me, so that I can use the images for stock and promotion. The winning session will include shooting time, online hosting, and an 8x10" print of your favorite shot.

Finally, if you are interested in a portrait shoot for yourself, your family, you and your partner, or a pet, I do have a bit more availability in January and February for my discounted mini portrait sessions, and would love to sign you up for one of the available dates. Here is more info on that special.

Thanks again for a wonderful 2009 (best year yet, with even better to come) and Happy 2010!!
