2010 Photo of the year Contest- Vote Here

For the past 4 years this has always been the most difficult blog post for me because I am terrible with narrowing down my favorite images from the year.  2010 was my busiest year which meant there were that many more images to go through and when I started to pick out which to include my initial folder had 40 pictures in it.  I got some help and finally got it down to 17 finalists.

Thank you SO much to all of my clients this year.  I am so honored and appreciative and can’t wait to see what is in store for 2011.

There will be THREE winners!

(1) The client whose image has the most votes will receive a complimentary 11 x 14 canvas or gallery mount of either the image from this contest or an image of their choice from an upcoming 2011 session they have with me.

(2) The 2nd place winner will receive a $100 gift certificate to put towards a session in 2011.

(3) Leave a comment on this blog post (scroll down under the 17 images).  A comment will be selected at random and the person who submitted the comment will receive a FREE Mini Session!!  The winner may either keep the prize for themselves or gift to a friend.  The Mini Session will be at the studio in Ridgewood between February and May 1 2011. You will receive a 5×7 print of each image in your gallery (between 10-15 images).

For winner #3 only one comment per person but you can earn an extra entry by posting about the contest on your Facebook wall
(let me know you’ve done so by posting on my facebook fan page)

Voting will begin NOW and end on January 8th at 9pm EST.
IP addresses will be monitored – only 1 vote per person
Results will not be visible on the poll and I will announce the winner on January 8th just after 9pm

    Kim - #10 – Feet

    Children’s feet are amazing and this picture captures them at 3 different stages. You can tell the middle one is the youngest, and the right is the oldest. There is something so innocent and pure about a child’s foot. It’s like they haven’t really walked a day in this world yet, their feet are unworn and soft to the touch.ReplyCancel
