  1. Happy Birthday! The newborn session is my favorite!!

  2. How do I feel looking back at ALL of the wonderful pictures you have so graciously taken for me? Happy, wide eyed, a teeny bit sad because my kids have grown up so much, grateful that you captured them at different times in their lives,indebted to you for making memories, and so so soooo happy to have you as a friend. Does that cover it all?

  3. Happy Birthday CHP! Emily took all my points. :) Thank you for being the best, and sharing it with us! Definitely enter me in that contest!

  4. Happy Birthday! Loved our session with the boys last fall:-) You captured them so well!!! Thanks

  5. My favorite session memory...aside from all the adorable ways my bitty babies have snuggled up to your camera is sitting in the middle of my bed, pregnant and eating from a jar of my mom's homemade dill pickles!


  6. I am so glad I saw this giveaway and am excited now! My favorite prize is, of course, the newborn session but it is not for myself... rather, I would gift it to my sister. She is my best friend and a sister like no other. She has been there for me through thick and thin and is the Godmother of my 2 children. So, I have done everything possible to show her how much she means to me with her 1st child on the way - I threw her an 'all-out' baby shower, bought her a year's worth of diapers and wipes, prepared 2 weeks of freezer meals and will be at the delivery to take photos/video. The only thing I could not provide was a Pregnancy Photo Session so I would absolutely LOVE to present her with a Newborn Photo Session! I have entered the contest by completing Entries 2, 3, 5, 6, 7 & 8. I love your photos and hope my sister can experience the same beauty in hers soon!

  7. I forgot to leave my email :o)
