Giveaway: Free photo consultation (or two)!

I want to give something away. . .

perhaaaaaaps. . .
to blind you from the fact that I'm taking my pretty little time
building content for the new blog. :)

perhaps.

so,
I'm giving away a free 1 hour photo consultation!

a $120 value!
YOURS FOR THE BARGAIN PRICE OF ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!

We can discuss anything you wish!

photo critique.
technical help.
branding.
marketing.
building your portfolio.
post processing.
workflow.
flash.
natural light.
the purpose of life.

whatever makes you happy.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A PROFESSIONAL TO ENTER!
If you ARE, awesome. But it's not a deal killer if you aren't.
I'd LOVE to help you "just get better pictures of the kids"!

To Enter:
  1. comment with your name (if there's no link back to your name, I need an email so I can contact you in the event that you win the consultation).
  2. tell your friends via twitter, facebook, blog post and all the etcs because guess what!? I just decided (yes, just this second) that if the winner was referred here by a friend, I'll give that person a free consultation as well! woot woot woot!
  3. winner will be chosen at random (thank you random.org), Friday at 4pm Hawaii time.
Now, I am saying "see you later alligator" to this old blog
and won't be back until content is built and the new blog is ready to launch!

Good luck!

I hope YOU win! ;)

xx,

Me

Thank you for this opportunity Natalie!! My friends Denise and Georges bought me a phone consultation with you last summer for my engagement present. I talked to you for 35 minutes one evening when you were in California. That conversation has changed the way I approach photography but more importantly how I approach my life. I am a more calm, balanced and focused person because of you. You inspire me. I hope that I win this consultation but if I don't I will be happy knowing that someone else will be able to have an opportunity to speak with someone as cool as you.

Zenica said...

Hey Natale I would love to know how to take better pictures of my kids. Having a 6, 4, and 2 year old all smile or even be happy at the same time is hard enough, but also having 4 year old son (Connor) who is autistic can make it even harder. He does good on his own, but you get the other two kids in there with him and it can be a mess.
So please pick me also it would be great just to talk to you again it's be forever.

Thanks Zenica Blosch Sanford
