Giveaway Results

I tried a giveaway last week, and I kinda feel like it pooped out...maybe my followers are mostly outside of So Cal, maybe people doubt my ability, or maybe people don't value portraits as much as I do. I'm not gonna lie, I'm a little bit bummed... HOWEVER, I'm not going to let it get me down.

This year, I've decided to do a certain number of photo shoots gratis in order to build my portfolio. I wanted to use my giveaway to practice, but also to network with other people. So you know what I'm gonna do? I'm going to practice and network!

I had 8 people who commented on my blog. Almost all of them will be winners!

  • Angry Julie Monday get's a photoshoot with Angry Toddler!
  • laurelstreet commented and is a sweet blahg friend who lives in New Orleans...thanks for the encouragement!
  • CarleeKajsa is my gorgeous cousin and gets a family shoot and photos of her 3 month old.
  • SAS commented and enjoyed the photos I took of she and the Dubber.
  • Living with Lindsay gets a family photo shoot the next time I'm in Austin! ; )
  • isk8jewel will have a special shoot with a friend when she's here the week of Labor Day!
  • Sonia is somewhere here in CA and if she can get down to the LA area, I'll arrange a family shoot for her, too!
  • Lisa Pechan, a wine club/small group friend, gets engagement photos!
Email me at jj@theblahblahblahger.com and we'll get things set up. Thanks for your excitement and for the trust you're placing in me for delivering special photos! I'll do you proud!

Angry Julie Monday said...

Hey, we have to meet anyway....

Cause otherwise I'll just keep stalking you online. I probably live the closest too....

Emily@remodelingthislife said...

I live awfully far away or I would have participated in your giveaway :)

Kimm at Reinvented said...

Another reason to wish I lived in SoCal. Congrats to all of the winners!

Melissa @ The Inspired Room said...

Hey you. If I could come to CA, I would totally love a photo shoot! :-)

I'm with Emily - when you said you'd come to LA for a photo-shoot, I was pretty sure you weren't thinking NOLA!

I'm proud to be a distinguished 'almost winner!'


Living with Lindsay said...

I was going to enter....I really was! I just got distracted and didn't get back and then, truthfully, forgot! I would LOVE you to take pictures of Ella for me....if you want to do kiddos! If adults are more your thing, I totally understand but seriously, I think your photos look great...and I think it's AWESOME you are pursuing something you've always wanted to!
