keep reading, there is a giveaway down there

Sometimes I look at my new studio space and I can’t believe I have it. It’s a space I’ve always wanted and I am loving it! As soon as we closed on this house I knew that when I got my act together and things set up I would have a grand opening of sorts. So, I have a couch now and a couple other exciting props on the way so to celebrate I am going to have a day of mini shoots.

Saturday, September 27th is the day. Here’s the deal… I will have 30 minute time slots available between 10:00 and 1:30 that day. For $75 you will get a mini studio session and 5-10 digital negatives to print as you please. Once the slots fill up that’s it folks so email me to reserve a slot. Bring your new baby, bring your family, just bring you and finally get a good photo of yourself. Heck bring your dog if you want. Don’t bring your cat. I’m allergic. I might just do this more often if it goes well so come on over!

ALSO. *THIS SHOOT IS NOW FULL*I will be having a fall leaves mini shoot day on Sunday, October 12th in Lafayette Park. Come get that family photo taken for your Christmas card. That day I will have 30 minute morning slots from 8:00-11:00 and later slots from 3:00 – 5:00. Same deal, $75 for 5-10 digital negatives. Email me to reserve a slot! Its impossible to know exactly when the peak of fall color will be, but this is the predicted date so it should be beautiful! *THIS SHOOT IS NOW FULL*

NOW FOR THE BEST NEWS. I will be giving away one of these mini shoot slots on Friday to one lucky commenter. Leave a little note and tell me who you are and you just might win. You get to choose if you want a studio shoot or fall leaves shoot. If you don’t live in St. Louis, but know someone who does then you can give your prize to them. You have until 8:00 a.m. on Friday to enter!

On a side note I would like to make a correction from the last post about Shane. After I showed him the post tonight he said "Well, first of all its not the Shriner's that take glasses donations, its the Lion's Club. Second of all I was keeping the cabbage patch doll's birth certificate in a safe place to prevent his identity from being stolen. Identity theft is serious stuff Erin."

Hi Erin! Am I the first to respond?? What an awesome idea . . .still deciding between the studio or fall photo shoot but had to throw in my comment for a chance to win! By the way I LOVE your blog and read it often and your website is awesome! To remind you I am a friend of Lauren Bommaritos and I've ordered signs from you in the past. Love your work and Marlie is adorable. I would love for you to take pics of my one year old Brendan:) Wish me luck!

I am pretty new to your blog... I come from candleatbothends. I would love to have my family of 5 photographed in either spot. I am tired of the same old boring sears shoots where i am never really pleased with the results anyway. From what I see on your blog, I really like your work.

i don't think it's fair for me to enter. first, i am a semi-employee and second, i am photographically still the kidless/husbandless (other way around?) kid myself in family pictures.

you did say dogs though...yeah - enter me! i'll bring my two 70+ lb black labs! that'll be fun... :)

I'm all for free stuff.

Hi Erin! I would LOVE to win this. I have three girls three and under and would LOVE to have a great photo to use for Christmas Cards. Please pick us!

Amy said...

Erin, I can't really enter to win since someone else needs to discover for themselves how awesome you are. But I do want to reserve a mini-photo session for October 12th! Sometime in the morning before naptime would be good. We were just talking about having you take pictures the other day since there aren't any of Jensen up in our house yet! :)

Maggie said...

Sign us up for the october 12th date and morning is best, but we will work around your schedule. I love your blog, you crack me up! You also got me to leave my first comment. XOXO

Hi Erin,
Throw me in the hat...I have a good person (that you know!) that would love a mini shoot with you. I will look like a great friend if I can pass it on :)

Julie Elston said...

Hi Erin! I would love to win a time slot (even if I don't win I'll probably be signing up for a slot anyway - just checking with the hubby's schedule)!! In case the name is not familiar....I'm Kurt's sister (or better known as Mr. Nug's Aunt)!
I love your blog - always makes me laugh. As a mother of a 2 and 4 year old I can always relate to your adventures!

I have some pretty cute kiddos, and they'd be even cuter in FREE PICS! How fun!

Sophie will be here by then! Yea! Sign us up for a slot during the mini-session (she won't be too big by then for those cute infant shots, will she?), and it'll be an added bonus if we win this contest!
Also, I was at work today when I read this post and laughed out loud in front of a bunch of random co-workers when I read Shane's comments. They thought I was weird. I thought it was hilarious. :)

I figured it out!!!!! I can now comment! Wow- I am sure glad I reserved my spot immediately... Obviously this has opportunity has wide appeal.

I would love to be entered into your drawing! I love your blog. You are so talented. The pictures of Shane were great. Tell him I still have the adoption papers for my cabbage patch doll too. :)
