Thank you SO MUCH for writing to me about the people you LOVE!

As always – it was hard to choose a family!

I also want to remind you to tell the people that you think so highly of EXACTLY HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT THEM!

Last year – Amanda wrote to me about her friends Rachel and Rich and their baby girl Reagan.

BUT – they didn’t win – then.

THIS YEAR – they won!

It was SO hard to choose – like it is EVERY year!!

If you submitted a family – but they weren’t the winner – check your email for a limited time offer regarding a session for that family!

THANK YOU AGAIN SO MUCH FOR supporting this little business of mine!

BE THE LIGHT – THROW KINDNESS AROUND LIKE CONFETTI!!

Thank you SO MUCH for writing to me about the people you LOVE!

As always – it was hard to choose a family!

A few years ago – Shalane wrote to me about Evelyn – she didn’t win at the time.

Shalane wrote to me about Evelyn again this year – and the love for her friend just SPILLED over through her email!

SO – Evelyn – your family is the WINNER this year! Evelyn submitted a family that won a few years ago!

Your friendship is inspiring!

THIS YEAR MAY HAVE BEEN THE HARDEST YET!

If you submitted a family – but they weren’t the winner – check your email for a limited time offer regarding a session for that family!

BEAUTIFUL WINNERS

So the “contest” got off to a pretty slow start – then it totally overshot my expectations!

Here’s the thing – I never wanted to be a photographer for the money – sure – I needed to make money to make it work and quit my secretary job – but it was never because of money.

God has blessed me – us – immensely in this beautiful journey! The moment I stop giving back that blessing is the moment I need to stop doing this “job” -

ANYWAY -

This one was a tough one – I read through them and then through them again – and then again – narrowing it down to 3 winners – not the normal 2!

Before I announce the winners I want to say THANK YOU to everyone that submitted a family for the contest. I loved reading all your entries and have been blessed because of it!

For those of you who did submit a family and that family didn’t win the FREE session – I am offering a special!

If you would like to gift that family a session you can get that session at a discounted rate of $125 (travel may have to be added on) if you send the deposit by 3.31.2012!

So let me know via email – dcbarden@gmail.com!

CONGRATS to the -

*B* family – Phil & Michelle and their kiddos!

*M* family – Rich & Julie and their kiddos!

*W* family – Ben & Beth and their kiddos!

Some awesome people love you!

Thank you again SO MUCH! I cannot wait for BEAUTIFUL 2013!
