PS: Red White & Blue PHOTO CONTEST!!!!

It's that time... I said it was coming and now it's here... the first ever PS Contest!! And since I know you're all dying to know the prize, I'll tell you what it is up front. Although I'm sure you could guess without much help from me. The winner of the PS: Red White & Blue Contest will win a family photo session* with me! Or, it can be a senior session, newborn session, kiddie session, engagement session, bridal session, etc. (sorry, no pictures for your wedding day can be won through this or any PS Contest).

The contest is called Red White & Blue and I want it to mean whatever it means to you. You, yes, YOU reading this blog post, will submit your favorite picture that depicts red, white and blue. It can be your kids celebrating July 4th last year with sparklers, it can be you and your family dressed up in your best Dollar Spot Independence Day stuff, it can be your daughter welcoming your son home from deployment, it can be your little boy saying the pledge with the US flag flying in the background or or or... the options are limitless.
After the submission date, all photos will be added to this blog and people who visit will be able to vote on their favorite picture. At the end of the voting period, the photograph with the most votes will win! So how do you get votes? You tell everyone you know to come and vote!! Yep, it's that simple.

However, as with any contest, there are rules.
  1. You have 2 weeks to make all submissions to me. Between June 1 and June 15 please email all photographs to sabrina.lewis@yahoo.com.
  2. In the email, please include your first and last name, names of those in the photograph and a title for the photo. Please also include the email address by which you wish to be contacted as this will be how I notify the winner.
  3. YOU must have taken the photo.
  4. If the photo is not of your family members, please obtain verbal agreement from them that it is ok with them that you submit the photo.
  5. Any inappropriate photos will not be posted.
  6. All photos must be around 1MB in size.
  7. Only one submission per household. I won't have any real way of checking this out (unless I know you and your family) so please use the honor system.
  8. You can live in any part of the world to submit a photo, but note that if you live outside of the Greenville/Spartanburg, SC area, there will be a fee to travel to you should your photo win (i.e. if you live in Fiji and have the most amazing 4th of July photo, you will be responsible for purchasing my plane ticket. Because I WILL come!).

I'm so excited about this!! Please let me know if you have any questions...




* free session includes no sitting fee and 50% off all prints ordered after the session. session must be booked within 2 weeks of being notified of winning.

Busy Weekend

Oh wow, what a fun weekend!! I had so much to do but of course didn't get anywhere near getting it done. But that's ok because I have TONS of pictures to sort through and post and get back to my clients/friends with. Everyone was so wonderful and it was such a blessing to see and be a part of three very distinct stages of life. Thanks for letting me celebrate with each of you! I hope you enjoy this quick peek...
