Picture People Give-Away

Last weekend we took Kinley for her one year portraits (I am aware that I was about three and a half weeks late). We used Picture People in a mall near our house.  I was super hesitant because the last time that we did studio pictures, she was about two months old.  And it was rough.  She cried the whole time.  I know that she was newborn and all....but it was tough.

They were so nice and so accommodating with us!  The photographer knew exactly how to get Kinley to cooperate, and that in itself made our visit ideal.

And then we saw the results:






And these are just a sampling of what she took.  I'm tellin' ya...it was a success!  Kinley had a blast...she thought she was just playing with the photographer.  We bought the CD and copyright because we just could not choose.

So.....now I want to pass on this great experience to you.

Together with Picture People, I am giving away a $75 gift certificate to be used at your local Picture People.  They don't charge a sitting fee, so your gift certificate can be used for all of your awesome prints (or towards the CD!).  Pretty awesome deal!

You can locate a studio near you here.  And you can see their package prices here.

Don't have a baby?  They do couples photography too!  Or, go and strut yourself and do your own photo shoot.  Work it, girl!  (sorry, I had to do it.)

So you want to win?  Here's how:
Leave a comment saying who you would have photographed.  Is it a first birthday session?  Maternity?  Newborn?  Engagement?  Tell me about it.

Extra entries:
(Please complete a comment for every extra entry.)
  1. Blog about this give-away.  (and put the link to the entry on your comment)
  2. Become a fan (there on the right--if you already are, leave a comment saying so)
  3. Follow me on Facebook  (if you already do, let me know!)
  4. Follow me on Twitter (if you already do, tell me)
  5. Tweet this give-away.
  6. Link to this give-away on Facebook.
There you have it.  Each of you can enter up to SEVEN times.  That is SEVEN comments per person. Wow.  Odds are good, my friends.  As always, please, please, please make sure that I have your email in your entry (or be sure that it's linked in your profile) so that I can contact you if you win. 

The contest is open to those in the US and Canada.  The contest will end on Saturday, January 15.

Picture People did not pay me to do this review and they did not do our portraits as compensation for this review.  We visited the studio on our own and paid for our own portraits.  Because of my satisfaction in their product, I invited Picture People into the Living On Trees family to host a give-away to my awesome readers and they agreed.  Yeah!

I love the picture people. I always take my son there and they do great work. They are very accommodating. If I won this gc, I would take my baby girl for her newborn pictures.

We use picture people all the time now but when my daughter was born we used olan mills and we had a bad customer service experience. We tried them but wasn't sure of them but the pictures turned out great with great prices. Then my son was born this past year and we got pictures made of the kids together it was so interesting how the photographers interact with the kids. I would use the gift certificate to have a family portate done. I haven't got one done yet and need too. I also follow you on facebook. I didnt know about you guys and it looks neat.
