We are getting close to Christmas! I started wrapping presents today. I am so excited for the boys to see what Santa brought them.
Anyways my giveaway yesterday the following people entered
and the Random Generator produced this
Tracy L. you are the Winner! (who commented on my Facebook post)Have Fun shopping!
Today's Giveaway is something I am really looking forward to.
GET YOUR CAMERA OUT OF AUTO
I will teach you for two hours how to stop using your automatic setting and start shooting in manual. I will cover topics such as ISO, Aperture, Shutter speed, Lighting etc. This should be a great first step for someone to truly understand their camera. Obviously you must have a DSLR to enter this Giveaway.
These past 3 months have been crazy busy for me. But as of today I finished all my clients orders and sessions for the year. I am officially on break. I have a session on the 18th coming up but that's not related to Christmas so that is good. I am done with Christmas pictures, Christmas cards, Christmas gifts, etc!!!
Since I have been so busy it has been hard to actually find time and visit stores. I found a new addiction. Online shopping! Cyber Monday became a new National Holiday for me ;) Hey I am just helping the economy. Right?
One of my favorite places to shop this year is the CSN Store! They have everything! I looked for a wooden kitchen for my kids... Bingo! A new watch for my husband... Bingo! One step shopping - Gotta love that! They seriously carry everything from towels to TV stands for flat screens.
And now Today's Giveaway is a $20 Coupon to any of the CSN stores! Pretty cool, huh?
All you have to do is leave a comment telling me about what you REALLY want for Christmas and I will draw a random winner tomorrow at 6pm!
Sorry only for US and Canadian Residents!

Welcome to my Twelve Days to Christmas Giveaway. Tomorrow is Day One.
Before we get started let's get some questions out of the way.
When will each giveaway be posted? I will try my best to post each giveaway here on my blog by 9pm.
How do I enter? Each Day I will let you know what the giveaway is and how to go about to get it. There will be a paypal button on the bottom of the post for each one.
Can I win multiple days? Yes you can. But you can't combine them. For example. One Day I might have a 20% off a sitting fee and the next a $50 off print credit, you can't combine them in one session. You can book two sessions though and receive your price for each session.
Can I switch my entry? No you can't. Just plain and simple it wouldn't be fair to everyone else or me.
Does that mean the biggest price will be posted on the 12th day? No. I won't tell you when I am posting the biggest price or what that might be, but I gurantee you it won't be on the 12th day.
If you have any other questions, please post them in the comments below and I will answer them to you asap!
Can't wait for tomorrow!
And because a blog post is not a real post without picture...
Three failed attempts + over 120 pictures + countless tears = ONE picture!
One picture of both boys, both smiling, both looking happy and cute!
This one is an out take.
A very cute one I might add.
Funny how the photographer has a hard time photographing her own children. But for clients give me 30 minutes and I come up with the most gorgeous pictures!
Well our pictures are done, next up is ordering the cards, then addressing them and last but not least sending them out.
I am a little behind but Heinrich will make sure I finish them up by next week.
In the past I have ordered my personal cards from Shutterfly. I love love LOOOOVE the quality and the great designs Shutterfly has to offer.
I am also going to order few of these super cute calendars. Shutterfly also ships super fast and I will be able to send them out very soon. Or maybe I should get Scot one of these mugs with a picture of Heinrich. Shutterfly has so many photo gift ideas to offer, that I am sure I will find something.
There are tons of great designs to choose from. Now if I could just make up my mind of which one to get.
We currently have a house guest. He arrived on Dec 1st and hopefully will leave Dec 24th.
His name is Heinrich.
He is here to watch us and report back to Santa.
Sometimes he hides for a few hours and then pops up in a new spot.
Jakey is trying really hard to figure out how he moves. But everyone knows that Heinrich moves when no one is watching him.
He also plays pranks on us. The TV remote control (= "clicker" what it is called in our house), toys, keys, wallets & kitchen utensills are sometimes missing and we know it is Heinrich.
Heinrich also watches out that we get everything ready for Christmas. He was very happy today when he saw we decorated a tree but was a little mad because not only is our tree fake this year but also small! He left for a few hours but Jake just found him next to the Goldfish bowl.
He is on me everyday for baking christmas cookies. I told him this week.
This is going to be a loooong month with Heinrich!
