THE CELEBRATION BEGINS!!

**  UPDATE!  Still taking entries through the 10th of January, so you still have a bit of time to get them in!  Can't WAIT to share some of my favorites.  ;)

 

So, the world is still turning and it is time to CELEBRATE!!  Lets start off with WHO these folks are and what they've got to do with the reason for the big celebration...

Meet Roman, Tracy and their new Baby Oskar.  10 years ago today I was shooting their wedding!!  CUH-RAZY!!!!   We got together last week to snap a few anniversary/new baby photos to celebrate their ten years together!  Why them?  Because their anniversary is also MY ANNIVERSARY!!  The 10 year anniversary of my first wedding shoot ever!  Goodness gracious, time FLIES when you are having fun!  10 years, hundreds of AMAZING clients, literally millions of photographs, lots of love, a ton of laughs {and more than a few tears} later, it is DEFINITELY time to celebrate and give thanks for all of you who have given me the honor of making a living by living my dream.  I am one blessed gal.  So... to say THANK YOU...

Thats right!   I'm giving away TEN 16x20 canvases and 3 mini sessions to celebrate!  

 

Here's how to enter:

 

To win a canvas:  Between now and January 5, 2013, if I have EVER taken your photo, email me your favorite picture and tell me why it is your favorite or what it means to you.  I will share some of my favorites on the blog after the New Year and then from all of the entries, I'll draw 10 random winners.  Winners can choose to have that photo or ANY photo I've taken for their canvas.  So, get ON IT!!!  You know you want to win this!!

 

To win a 30 minute mini-session (love, engagement or family) with 50 files on a disc, submit a haiku or poem (that's right, I said haiku - google it, its not that hard) about why you want a session.  Must be submitted to jennie@jennieandrewsphoto.com by January 5, 2013.  I'm going to share some of those too and pick 3 winners for a mini-session in the spring.  

Have a HAPPY, MERRY, CHEERFUL and FESTIVE holiday and THANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOU for the love, support and joy you have each brought me!

The Olivia Act

Happy Wednesday y'all.  I just want to share a little something cool with you today.  I struggle daily with how and what to give of myself on a regular basis, and then something happens that nudges me into action, that reminds me that I DO have valuable gifts to give.  Today, I'm grateful for the Olivia Act, which reminded me that what I (and other photographers) do means so much to so many people. When I read today about the Olivia Act, I knew immediately I'd be part of it.  

The Olivia Act, named after one of the children killed in Newtown, was started by a photographer who wishes to be anonymous. Olivia’s family had family pictures taken a short time before she was killed. Those pictures are precious and now priceless to them. Upon hearing this, this photographer was moved to give away a 30 minute family photo shoot and has challenged other photographers to do the same. 

I will be taking nominations for a family who you think would appreciate this gift. This session will take place after the New Year. I will be taking Nominations until January 5. Please email their name, contact information and a brief summary of why you chose them to: Jennie@jennieandrewsphoto.com putting “THE OLIVIA ACT NOMINATION” in the subject line. The chosen family will be contacted via email or phone call.   And for all of my photographer friends, I hope that you do the same.  much love, jennie

OMG.  Let's just talk for a second about how much I ADORE this family - Erin, Brad and Panzer just simply rock.  They wanted to mark their one year anniversary by doing a 'dog washing session.'  This was TOTALLY Erin's idea, and in this world where nothing is original, I think this is as close as it gets.  Eek!  Anyhow... hope you enjoy this session filled with love and fun and bubbles!!!  ;)

Goodness, gracious... I can't think of anything more fun than a day at the fair.  I'm going back a couple of months for this one, but I just couldn't let another week go by without sharing it.  I've known Kayla for YEARS!  I mean, we go way, way back.  So, naturally, I was SO EXCITED when she asked me to shoot her wedding next year and to do her engagement photos this fall.  First thing you should know... Kayla has amazing style.  The girl doesn't leave the house without perfect hair, flawless makeup and adorable clothes.  Which makes her so much fun to shoot (well, that and her slightly dramatic nature).  ;)  Second, when they asked me if I'd mind shooting at the fair, I jumped up and down!  I love shooting the fair... with all of its colors, smells, quirky people and tasty food, it's sensory overload!  And I can't help it... i just LOVE photos with other people in them.  Just makes a shoot feel so romantic, like, who cares about all these other folks?... I choose YOU... over and over and over, I'd still choose YOU.   xoxo

{caitlin & mckay}

I am SO FLIPPING excited to share this wedding.  I don't know if its the beach, or the super fun couple, or that the stars just aligned (probably a bit of all three), but this was one AMAZING wedding weekend. Caitlin and McKay are close friends of one of my favorite couples ever (who, fyi, will be back on the blog next week), and though they are from North Carolina and were getting married at Wrightsville Beach, invited me to shoot their wedding.  I was stoked!  Not only are they uber cool, laid back and so fun to be around, they are also adorable.  I love the wedding day pics so much, but even more, I LOVE the day after shoot... where they were able to really relax and just be totally themselves... and totally in LOVE.  <3



Lordy mercy... Caitlin's parents were just the cutest things...


this, my friends, says 'true love' more than a dozen red roses ever could...



I just love, love these walk-down-the-aisle pics...  They both started tearing up a little, so they both broke into giggles...  awwwww.


and now... for my favorite part...


I love that we pulled out their surfboards.  They both surf since they just live a few hours from the coast...

A photographer friend of mine out in Colorado (Steve Z Photography) coined the term 'sport the dress.'  I think this might be an appropriate use of that term!  ;)



And THANK YOU BOTH for having me there!!  xoxo  Jennie
