Wow, what a year it's been. This time last year I was sat in a beer garden in Guildford saying farewell to my colleagues as I'd worked my last day in the office having been made redundant. I'd been building up my photography anyway and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to take the plunge into self employment and I haven't looked back. I have been meaning to pop in and see the office gang but I haven't made it yet - sorry!
Here are some of the lovely people I've met over the last year and the reason I'm sat here at my computer smiling:
I feel so lucky to be doing a job I love and I get the chance to meet so many lovely people, people who then very kindly recommend me to their friends and family too which is the biggest compliment of all.
So, as a thank you back, I'm doing my biggest giveaway to date and there's also another thank you to all of my previous clients too.
How would you like to win not only a family or newborn portrait session but also £100 credit to put towards prints or products of your choice? And after a recent poll on my facebook page I'll also include £30 of John Lewis vouchers to put towards a new outfit for the session (just don't do as I would and end up buying something for the house ;) )
To be in with a chance of winning this, in my biased opinion, fantastic prize, follow the link to the rafflecopter site. You can earn more entries by completing different tasks so don't forget to increase your odds! Entries will remain open until the 16th August and I'll announce the winner on the 17th.
And for all of my lovely and loyal past clients, I'm offering 20% off any print orders submitted before the 17th August - drop me an email firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll reactivate your gallery.
And to finish, I'm tempted to do this myself to celebrate the year!
Just a few formal bits! This competition is not linked or associated with Facebook or John Lewis. A The competition will run until 16th August 2014 and a post will be put on my business facebook page stating that it is closed. All entries have to be made via the rafflecopter link above and the random selector thingiemajig is final. The prize of a photoshoot must be taken by October 31st 2014 on a date agreeable to both the winners and myself and within a 30 mile radius of Farnborough, Hampshire. If there are any additional costs incurred due to the location of the photoshoot, these will be paid for by the winner (for example, entrance fees or photography permit). The winner of the competition agrees that images from the session may be used on social media websites, my website and in marketing material. Should the winner wish to gift the prize to a family/friend, this is acceptable provided they also agree to these terms. Any print orders made via this offer are subject to a standard £3.50 postage and package fee.
