I Heart Faces 2015 Best Face Contest

Happy New Year to Everyone!

The top of the year for us all! I love the energy that comes about in January. The goals refreshed and the hope renewed. The reflection on the past year and the dreams at the start of a new year.

I have so much to catch you all up on but I must get to bed. It’s well past my 41 year old bedtime. Why these beautiful faces on my blog? The annual “Best Faces” Contest is open at I Heart Faces! I am thrilled to be a guest judge along with my fellow Creative Team Members at IHF. The contest is open from Monday January 5th until Saturday January 10th in the evening. Photographers start looking through those sweet faces you photographed this past year!

All contests requirements are posted on the I Heart Faces blog HERE. Good luck everyone! xo

Third Annual One for the Wall Photo Contest

Hello to everyone!

Here we are…almost the end of 2012. It was four years ago this month that I registered the business name One for the Wall photography. Each year I like to finish off the season with the same contest. This is a way for you to show me your favourite photo and tell me why it is your favourite photo from our session. Every year I look forward to seeing which photo you will choose and the story behind it.

So here are the details!

If you have been a client of mine in 2011 and 2012 you are eligible to enter one photo from our session together. You must chose your favourite and write underneath the photo why it’s your favourite. Simply upload your photo onto the One for the Wall Facebook page.

I will put the names of everyone that has entered into a hat and my wonderful daughters will draw a winner on Friday December 21st (the first official day of winter!). The winner will receive a full family session for the 2013 season.

The winner will then chose another person of their choice from the photos posted for a $150 gift certificate towards a full session in 2013.

This is my favourite contest of the year. It’s a way to celebrate another wonderful season and for you to let me know what photo was your favourite. The contest is officially ON and will run until midnight December 20th and the winner posted Friday December 21st in the morning!

Thank you once again to all of my amazing clients, friends and family!
Much love,
