Family Portrait Giveaway 2016We officially have a winner for our Family Portrait Giveaway for 2016. I would officially like to congratulate Virgil Lee as our family portrait giveaway winner! Virgil is a Youth Pastor at Catalyst Church in Northwest Arkansas and in general, a really great guy!

Virgil and his family will let me know the best time to take their family pictures, so once they’re processed, I’ll be sure to post them here and on our Facebook page.

A few times each year I’ll be offering subscribers a chance to win one of several photography sessions. In the middle of December 2016, I thought giving away a family portrait session would be a great way of giving back to the community that I love so much. It turned out that giving away a free family portrait package was an awesome idea since we had well over 200 entries.

Unfortunately, there can only be one winner in each drawing, but hey, I plan on giving away some awesome photography sessions this year, so be sure to follow my Facebook page and stay up to date.

I’m also going to give away one local wedding package each year. Since I was unable to get the wedding contest going in time this year, I’ve decided to go ahead and give it away to a very deserving couple getting married in April of 2017. I’ll go ahead and congratulate Dana Burns and her fiancee Justin Reynolds. For those of you that know Dana, she’s absolutely one of the most hilarious people you’ll ever meet. It should be a fun wedding to photograph.

Someone asked me the other day why I ran the family portrait giveaway this year. “Aren’t you getting enough work?” My response was plain and simple.

There are several ways to look at it, but like I said before, my response was plain and simple. I wanted to give something away during Christmas that I cherished. That’s it. I have an enormous work load, but giving something away is always fun! A family portrait giveaway was a great way to give away something!

Oh yeah, it’s also called good marketing!

So be sure to follow my Facebook page and see what I’ll be giving away next. You never know when, so check back often.
