June Surprise Session!

It’s been way too long since I’ve done a Surprise Session…  so I’m gonna do it a little different this time.  That’s the fun part about being me, I get to make up the rules of this blog.  🙂

I’m going to host TWO surprise mini-sessions on this round…  and here’s how it’ll work:

  • Leave a comment on this blog post telling me why you want to win
  • You must be available one weekday evening NEXT week (June 27-July 1)
  • Winners will receive a 30-minute mini (your session fee will be waived)
  • Surprise mini’s will result in approximately 5-10 images (prints/products available for purchase, same as always)
  • Winners will be chosen sometime Monday morning, June 27th!

Who can enter?

  • Surprise mini-sessions are applicable only to 1-2 subjects (HS senior, child, couple, siblings, etc)
  • Does NOT apply to newborns

That’s it.  Seriously, that’s all you gotta do.  Just leave me a comment if you meet the above criteria!  Oh, and if you want to win.  🙂


In celebration of this awesomeness, I leave you with a super cute picture of Miles from when we were hanging out a few weeks ago, like we do.  Just because no post is really complete without a photo, you know… and because he’s cute.  Even when he’s sick.  And even when he’s army-crawling into a prism.  Word.

    I’d love to win the mini session because over the last two years I’ve lost 180 lbs and the current picture we have on our mantel doesnt not even look like me anymore! Please, please! Pick me!

  2. I should win won of these b/c I haven’t had pics of my kids done since the last time you did them! You TOTALLY want to see how my nuggets have turned into big-uns! Seriously, you won’t believe how much the girls have grown or how Logan’s eyes have managed to get EVEN larger and more beautiful. You know you want an updated shot of him for your new business cards… 🙂

    As luck would have it. I just so happen to have an amazingly adorable one year old who would be the perfect subject. Besides, he took his first steps this week, and moments like that can only be captured by someone with your talent. It’s destiny that I win this session. I can feel it in my bones.

    I SOOOOO want to win one of these sessions!!!!! And because you know me….you KNOW it’s not for me. I want to win this for my daughter Ashley. I would love to see engagement pictures of her and her fiance Travis. The first pictures you took of my family was for my 30th Wedding Anniversary, and my 50th Birthday. Ashley is the one that had seen your work and told me to contact you. Over the past year and a half, she has told me repeatedly that all she wanted is to find someone that will treat her just like her daddy has always treated me. And then….she met Travis, and we all knew immediately that he is the love of her life. I’ve never seen her happier, and we are looking forward to their October wedding. Since I know how much you despise doing wedding pictures…..I would so love for you to capture their happiness as only you can do 🙂 I know it will be a difficult decision for you, but I’m hoping you really consider Ashley & Travis!!!

  5. After a really rough year losing my grandma and getting a divorce, I sat down to dinner on December 18th and met the love of my life. He’s everything I’ve ever wanted- just like my daddy, treats me like a queen, tells me I’m
    beautiful everyday. I never knew that life could be as good as it is since he came into my life. Obviously, this is my second wedding, and though it’s his first, we’re planning on a limited budget and would love to have engagement pictures done, but it doesn’t really fall in the budget. We would love the opportunity to have beautiful pictures to document this amazing time in our lies. Thank you for considering us!

  6. I would love to win this photo session because I am filling my house up with your “art” and I have a lot of wall space left! Your photos of my girls are the only thing that is hanging on my walls! Some might call it a shrine to my children, but I call it “Melissa’s art gallery”. I may be too late entering, but I thought you should know that you are the only person who has every captured the essence of who they are !
