Ever look at a friend’s stunning photo and think, gah, I want a nice headshot like that?

Life is busy, it can be hard to find time to treat yourself.

A few weeks ago we launched our first ever Best Photo Idea Contest. This was a fun one to read the entries–so many awesome ideas.  It was truly hard to pick just one winner, but alas, it had to be done.

Drum roll, please!

The Best New Idea was: Coast to Coast by contestant: Sondra B.

From Sondra’s entry: “We moved here from Connecticut. I want to do something funny about shunning our old life (heavy winter coats, boots, etc.) and embracing the California sunny, outdoor, fit lifestyle.”  

This lucky contestant and her family have won a FREE photography session plus $200 photo prints credit.  Congrats!

And thank you to everyone who participated!

I am so excited to share with you this beautiful video of the Blue Sky’s Experience created by @connerbrashier! He is absolutely amazing! Hope you enjoy the video. And a big thanks to the wonderful families who starred in this production.

Holiday photos in the summerLet’s face it, this summer Christmas is probably the last thing on your mind. But did you know that summer is the best time to take family photos for those holiday cards? Here are my top ten reasons why you should book your family portrait session today.

#10. Easier to book. It’s easier to get a weekend appointment (or an appointment at all).

#9. Sun-kissed skin. You will still have that fresh, summer glow instead of that winter pallor.

#8. A chill photo shoot. Your session will be more relaxing, because you don’t have to worry about fitting it in to your busy holiday schedule.

#7. Bragging Rights. You can tell your friends that you got your holiday cards finished early!

#6. Clothing Sales. Fall clothing is on sale. You can pick up a really cute outfit for every member of your family at a discount. Check out www.peekkids.com for amazing outfits for kids 12 and under.

#5. Beautiful weather. The weather outside is amazing this time of year–and oh those spectacular sunsets.

#4. No Crowds. You won’t have to fight the masses at the popular holiday portrait spots.

#3. Holiday Card discount. You will get 20% off of your holiday cards when you place your print order at the same time.

#2. The Savings. My Christmas in July package (good thru 8/31/15) is only $299 (reg. $499), so you’ll save $200 right off the bat.

#1. Those Family Portraits. Because you aren’t holiday shopping, cooking for holiday parties or traveling to grandma’s house, you will actually make the appointment. And you’ll finally have creative, contemporary portraits of your family that you will enjoy for years to come.
