You guys! My blog is 1 year old this week! Hooray!
It’s crazy to me that it’s only been one year since I started posting here, but at the same time it’s all gone by so fast! I want to thank each of you who stop by to read so faithfully–you’re truly the best! Some changes are happening around here in honor of this birthday, and I’m pretty excited. First, you can now comment on any of my blog posts–so say hello when you stop by! Second, I’ve added a search bar at the top of the home page, so if you are having trouble finding a post you loved, you can just type key words in there and it should come right up! Also, I’ve updated my professional galleries under the “Photography” tab on the home page, so you can easily view my more recent work in slideshow form! All good things, all good things, right?!
This week, as a little “thank you” from me to you, I’m giving away FIVE free mini photo shoots! Each shoot is 30 minutes long, and you can use them for just about anything. I’ll be posting a few ideas for mini shoots throughout the week. The possibilities are endless, really!
Excited? Curious? Want to know how you can win?! Ok ok, I’m getting there!
Here’s how you can enter to win a free photo shoot:
+ “Like” Mary O Photography on Facebook
+ Share at least one (but up to 5) of our promotional photos about the giveaway
+ Comment on any of my blog posts this week telling me how many times you entered
This means you can enter up to 6 times for your chance to win! If you’ve already “liked” Mary O Photography (THANK YOU!), we’ll still count it as an entry as long as you also share at least one promotional photo.
You may be thinking “Hey, I love winning things as much as the next person, but I’m not engaged or anything! what could I use a 30 minute photo shoot for?”
Good question! Are you in love with someone? Go on a picnic photo shoot with them. Have cute kids? Let them play dress up and I’ll take their photos. Need a family Christmas card photo? Let me do it! It’s just you and your pet? Let’s go to the park! Want all your grandkids in one photo? You get them in the same place and I’ll take the pictures. Have some besties? Go out for a girls’ night and take some photos to kick it off. Love the idea of an inspiration shoot? Bring it on!
If you just can’t come up with anything you’d want me to take photos of, or if you know someone who would want/need photos more than you, you can give away your free shoot if you win! Wouldn’t that be a great gift for your friend who just had a baby? Or that person who’s last headshot was taken 20 years ago?
Anyway, I hope you all get as excited about this as I am! I really could never thank you all enough for joining me here every week, but hopefully this giveaway is a good enough start.
Here’s to the beginning of an awesome birthday week!
ps–the fine print of the giveaway:
Each individual person can enter up to 6 times. Entries can be made by “Liking” Mary O Photography on Facebook, and sharing or re-posting one or all (up to 5) of Mary O Photography’s promotional images regarding the giveaway. Entries are only valid if noted in the comment section of any post made on MaryOPhoto.com between 10/20 and 10/24 in 2014 before 8pm on 10/24 when the giveaway closes. There will be 5 winners, and they will be announced the following week after being chosen at random. Each individual can win only one photo shoot, though each entry into the contest increases an individual’s chance of winning. If multiple people win a free photo shoot and they wish to be in a shoot together (ie: engagement photos, etc), they cannot apply both coupons to the same shoot. Each photo shoot won is good for 30 minutes of shooting time with Mary O Photography. The coupon may be applied to a longer photo shoot booked with Mary O Photography as up to $75. Each coupon is transferable, however, only one coupon per individual is allowed. All photo shoots won through this giveaway must be redeemed (that is, booked or scheduled) with Mary O Photography by Decemeber 31st, 2014 at 5pm. Each winner of a photo shoot is responsible for contacting Mary Ogilvie at firstname.lastname@example.org by November 1st, 2014. The winner forfeits his or her free photo shoot if he or she does not contact Mary Ogilvie by email before this date. The coupon does not include the price of gas money for shoots booked outside the OKC metro area.
