Whew, what a year of growth and self-exploration 2013 was for both me personally and my business. Since the holidays are over and I refuse to let the post-Christmas blues get me down, I’ve decided to start a yearly tradition in which YOU get to vote on YOUR favorite portraits of 2013! The client voted favorite portrait will win a $25 gift card to Gap, Jcrew, or Anthropologie (winner’s choice). Most of these are from my 2013 portrait sessions, with the exception of a couple from 2012 that I just couldn’t not include, since I’ve never done a giveaway of favorites before. Also, because my favorite portraits are the ones heavy on emotion, I’ve converted them into black and white. While I love a color portrait, I believe that the black and white allows you to fully observe the beauty of emotion I was trying to capture in each photograph.
Here’s how it will work: To vote, simply state your favorite of the twenty listed in the comments at the bottom of the post, that’s it!
One vote is allowed per reader; however, you may share the post and get as much friends and family to vote as you’d like! The contest starts today and goes through this Wednesday, January 8th at midnight. The winner will be announced on Thursday’s blog post.
Disclaimer: This does not include my weddings, so if you were one of my brides, don’t feel left out, I’ve just decided that weddings did not belong in this category. Instead, I think I may do a summer giveaway especially for brides in the future.
