{Giveaway} The Simple Portrait Project Family Photo Shoot

With the holiday season upon us, it is impossible to not be in a giving mood. And in the spirit of “giving” I’m thrilled to be sharing this special giveaway on The Herron Nest with all of you.

I was recently approached by a very loving family about the idea of giving away a photo shoot to a family who doesn’t have the means to pay for this themselves. With presents to be purchased and large families to host, sometimes these extras aren’t in the budget, right?

Here is how this unique giveaway will work:

Please post a comment with a little description about what “family” means to you and why the donors should pick your family for this fun photo session {Check out the gallery and photo style of photographers, Jonbob and Jeremy, at http://thesimpleportraitproject.com}. Feel free to share this post with a family you feel will really appreciate the offer or “nominate” a family that deserves an opportunity to be photographed together for the holidays.

{Photo Shoot Details}

  • Plan to show up at least 15 minutes before the scheduled time, typically there will be many families there as they do back-to-back 30 minute sessions all day.
  • What you wear is as important—and so is what everyone else is wearing. Consider what the group is wearing as a whole. Look like you belong together; a similar color palette, similar season. Make sure clothes are clean and pressed because details show. And NO MATCHING OUTFITS!!! {per http://thesimpleportraitproject.com}
  • Expect two to four set-ups per 30-minute session. For larger groups, one session will probably only yield one beautiful group shoot
  • This a stress-free photo shoot.  No need for Sunday best – jeans and bare feet turn out great! 

{Giveaway Details} 

The giveaway includes one 1/2 hour photo shoot {date and time has already been chosen, make sure you are available for the time-slot} and 4 Hi Res JPEG “digital” prints via disc. Additional Hi Res JPEG files are $25 each available for your choice to purchase. There are also options of purchasing archival-quality signed prints {see pricing} or you can simply take the disc and choose your print method ie: Snapfish, Shutterfly, etc.

  • Date – December 1st
  • Time – 12:30 pm
  • Location – 308 8th Street, 6th Floor, Cincinnati, OH 45202

The family who wins the Simple Portrait Project Family Photo Shoot giveaway will be chosen on November 27th – all entries must be submitted by 1pm on 11/27 for consideration. Be sure to leave your email address in the comments section so that you can be contacted promptly. 

*That’s right, I’m NOT picking the winner, Random.org is NOT picking the winner, but the anonymous family who is giving away the photo session, is going to decide.

Crinkles The Dog Who Couldn't 'Woof' by C.J. GoffCrinkles The Dog Who Couldn’t ‘Woof’ is an adorable book that is so fun to read. Each page is full of rhymes telling a story of Crinkles the dog who gets help from his great Woof-fairy in a journey to finally get a chance to ‘woof’!

This book has a “never-give-up” message,  no matter how hard you try, even if  you don’t get what you want the first few times you try, there is always a way if you work hard. Crinkles had to do some pretty silly things that the great Woof-fairy suggested for him in order to woof. You and your little ones will love reading about the silly things Crinkles does just so that he can WOOF!

You and your family can get your hands on a copy of this book too by going to Amazon and then choose which version you’d like; paperback or Kindle edition OR you can win a copy!

{Giveaway Details} C.J. Goff himself wants to send a copy of Crinkles The Dog Who Couldn’t ‘Woof’ to one lucky Herron Nest reader. Might it be you?

Winners have 24 hours to respond (please make sure you give me your email address) and will need to give me their address so that the book can be sent to you.

{How can YOU win?} And just like the great Woof-Fairy asked Crinkles to do silly things so that he could woof, I’m asking you to do a few silly things so that you and your family can enjoy Crinkles The Dog Who Couldn’t ‘Woof’ too! Please read this book to me daddy!
