Local Giveaway: Win a Session with Virginia Photographer Nicole Pavey ($380 value) **closed**

*Update 2/17/10* Congratulations to our winner...... Stimey! (Be sure to post the fabulous family photos you have taken!) Plus, everyone remember that you can contact Nicole with code WINTERPHOTOS to get $50 off! __________________________

Get $50 off any session/package mention code: WINTERPHOTOS

We haven't had a professional family photo taken since the girls were a year and a half old. They cried just about the whole time. I don't even think we got a family photo. We go the girls with mommy, the girls with daddy, and the girls together.  So, we are due.

Real Photographer versus In-store Studio

When the Twofer were little we took them to various photography studios located in department stores or chains that you find in the mall. When they started preschool I stopped taking them to studios because the school photos always seemed to turn out really cute. Plus, I always thought a 'real' photographer would be way too expensive. Guess what? It's not. Not when you consider the frustration we ALWAYS experienced when some teenager couldn't get the camera to work, or my kid to relax.

Spending a little more to use a professional would have been the smart thing to do. So let's go back 4 years and remind THAT Janine to smarten up. Then, let's talk about the giveaway!

Nicole Pavey Photography Giveaway

Start browsing around the Nicole Pavey website and blog and you can see her knack for capturing kids and families at their best. I like the natural feel of the family photos. And the newborn images are simple but memorable. You can almost smell the baby shampoo...mmmm.

We would have our yearly family photo session. And since we just moved to the NoVa area I am looking for a photographer.

January 25, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterVicki

I would give this to my very good friends who live in the DC area--they just had a baby this month and I'm sure they'd love to have some professional pictures taken!!

January 26, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSarah

January 26, 2010 | Unregistered Commentersara

I would use this for a newborn session for my first child - coming in less than a month!

January 26, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterStefany

I would love to have a session with myself and my hubby or 1 with me and my boys. or maybe all of the above.


January 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSunday Stilwell

This session would be great for our family of 4 who rarely does professional photos! Thanks for such an awesome giveaway!

January 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLeticia- Tech Savvy Mama

Just posted it to my FB page w/link to the giveaway but I don't think it linked to you so I friended you so you could see it is there! :)

January 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLeticia- Tech Savvy Mama

We haven't had professional photos since Michael was 5 months old! I would love this. The picture would be my almost 5 year old, my husband, and I. I would love this to mark his five year old b-day.

January 27, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterjodifur

I would love to document the development of our family of 5! We never make it to picture people!

January 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMLB

Wow! Great giveaway! My friends live in Richmond, and with 4 1/2 kids (she's preggos with number 5) this would be a great gift for them!

January 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAndrea

We haven't had a family photo since my twins were born (they're 3 1/2 now!). I'd love to do one of the five of us (I also have a 6yo). Thanks for the chance to win!

I would love to have a photo session with my family of five.

January 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterStimey

I would get photos of our whole family. We haven't done it since the boys were 18 months, and they were at Walmart, and not good quality.

January 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJennifer

I live in Fairfax, so Nicole's location couldn't be more perfect for me. My photo shoot would include my two boys; the 9yo and our new 3-week old.

January 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDe in D.C.

Oh I don't know if I could subject the lovely Nicole to my 4 crazy kids.. but maybe a nice "as they grow" shoot.. or hey maybe I could subject her to my mug for the headshots I've been meaning to get for my blog and beyond. Who knows. Thanks for the giveaway and have FUN down at Disney!

February 11, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDiPaola Momma

We are way past due for a family photo that actually looks good. The last one we got is pretty cruddy.

February 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterFrantic Holly

Posted on facebook. Not sure if it actually tagged you though.

February 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterFrantic Holly

I would have the pictures taken of myself, my wife, and our 16-month-old son Linus. That would be amazing!

February 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLuke Swantek

I would love to win. My three kids would be in the photo session. It would be great to have professional shots of them.

February 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKristin

i'd give this to my DC family and they'd be in the photos

February 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSara

I would say the entire family. As we've never had a family picture taken and now there's a new addition, this would be perfect for us!

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterThien-Kim

Ok, I only tweeted once since I JUST found out about the giveaway. Hope that's ok.
