it's a GIVEAWAY!

I think it's time to celebrate my official business launch.  After a year plus of portfolio-building, and many many hours spent learning and working on the business side of photography, I am ready to jump in with both feet.  Yay!   With a new blog look, a new logo, a website, and {most importantly, heehee} permission from the great state of Idaho and the IRS, I'm ready to call myself a photographer.

And what better way to thank all my past and future clients than with a GIVEAWAY!  

What can you win??  A FREE photo session!! {including the session fee and collection one, this is a $395 value!}.  Anyone in Eastern Idaho or Utah is eligible....or anyone willing to travel here.  What if you already have a session booked?  Yes, you can enter, too and your session will be free.  

For out-of-staters, you can enter to win a MOUNTED 11x16 FINE ART PRINT!  Choose from the four below and in your entry tell me which one you want to win!

1. Assateague Lighthouse, Virginia; 2. Annapolis, Maryland; 3. Cabo San Lucas; 4. Chincoteague Island, Virginia

Details, details.....Here's how you can get up to five entries:

1.  Comment on this blog post and tell me what kind of session or which fine art print you want to win.

2.  Visit my website, then come back and leave another comment with feedback on my site.  

3.  Like my page on facebook, and come back and tell me in another comment that you have.

4.  Share my giveaway in your facebook status or on twitter, and come back and in another comment share the link with me to your page.

5.  Blog about it!  Then come back and leave a comment with a link to your blog.


Easy peasy.  Are you excited yet?  Giveaway ends Sunday, March 13.  Winners will be announced Monday, March 14.  

Go forth and Enter!

Your website is lovely!

Heidi said...

Congratulations Tami! I'm excited for you to get all official-like. I think I would go with art print #1 ... or maybe #3. You have to tell me where they are all shot so I can go and visit those gorgeous places!

Heidi said...

And I visited your website and it looks great. I love your "about" page. Perfectly describes you :)

Heidi said...

And I have been a fan of your photog facebook page since the beginning I think!

I'm so excited you're officially up and running. You deserve the best! Thanks, Tami!!

Shae Johnson said...

It is a tie between print #1 and #3. I love them all, though. Thanks for the opportunity!

MADI said...

The website looks great Tam! Good luck with everything.

Corinne said...

I am SO HAPPY FOR YOU! What a huge step, my friend! You do a fantastic job - and I do love the website. Classy stuff, the pictures of Lis's kids are some of my very favorites :) If you're really giving a picture away, I'd love number 4 :)

Emily said...

Congratulations! It looks great! I want a head shot session so I can update my website with more current pics, and maybe to use on some new business cards.

Emily said...

I already gave you feedback about your site in person, but I guess I can again. :) It looks fantastic! I love the simplicity of it, and the color scheme. My fav might be the pics of Johnny (course). I like your bio; it's very creative. I like the slide-show feature but I wish it scrolled through the pics faster.

Emily said...

Tami! I knew you wouldn't have any trouble with lots of people entering to win! So if I win, I want your picture of the cows, #4. Although, I love them all and this is a little bit of a debate!.

Carrie said...

Oh, and I liked you on facebook a long time ago, does that count?

Carrie said...

Ok, here's to the website comment: its fabulous! But of course it is! You are fabulous! And I particularly like the photos of that Athay family. They are quite the handsome set!

Carrie said...

And now I shared your link in my facebook status...and I talked you up because you're amazing! But I don't know when I'm going to have time to blog!

erin said...

My little girl is turning 1 this summer, so I'd love family pictures and one year pictures!

erin said...

Loved your website. It was simple to navigate and well put together. I saw exactly the kind of photos I'm looking for, and I saw my favorite Eckman family! I used to babysit those kids.

Lois Murphy said...

Tami,
I can't wait for you to take Kim's senior pictures! You do beautiful work!

Lois Murphy said...

Tami,
I love all of the pictures you have posted, but I especially love the pictures of your darling children! You have the most creative Valentine pictures I have ever seen!

Lois Murphy said...

I don't have a blog or I would mention it on there--I'm still learning how to get around Facebook. I will tell everyone I know about you though!

lovejoy said...

Holy cow, you've already got quite a few comments. I really never win anything, but that doesn't stop me from trying... :). I'd have you take a family picture; we haven't ever had a professional one taken. After this baby is born. As for your pictures, they are all so beautiful! It's hard to choose a favorite since they're all different. I think I like...4,2,1,3 in that order. I think.

lovejoy said...

I love that you have a mobile option to view your website! It seemed to take a little long to load pages, but that could be a problem from my end and not yours. I used my phone.

lovejoy said...

I liked your page on Facebook, too! :)

lovejoy said...

Oh! I just realized I've probably missed your time deadline! Oh well! :)

Allison Affleck Blog said...

Better late than never right?! You take the best pictures...enter me in the contest!

Allison Affleck Blog said...

Tami,

I love the website. I love that you don't over photoshop pictures. You really can't tell you've done a bunch of touch ups and made us look good! We just think we're that hot!

Allison Affleck Blog said...

I already liked your Facebook page a long time ago...can I still use this entry ;)

Allison Affleck Blog said...

Tami,

I pimped you out on my facebook page :) (in a good way of course)

Brandy said...

I would love to have you take pictures of my children.

Brandy said...

Your website is beautiful and captures the diversity of your abilities. I particularly love the candid shots.

Brandy said...

I have liked your FB page, even if I am past the deadline. I truly think you do amazing work.

Brandy said...

Blogged about at http://heinerlife.blogspot.com. I'd love to have new pictures of my kiddos.

Mom Alley said...

Forgot to thank you for the wonderful pictures of our family and friends. You are amazing! The picture you took of Max is on my screen saver. Thank You a million!

Brandy said...

For the record, the lighthouse one is my favorite. They are all amazing, but I have always loved lighthouses and the color red! It's beautiful.
