INSPIRE ME portrait session giveaway winner

Dear readers,

Have I told you lately that I love you? I am so overwhelmed by all of your amazing entries for this portrait session giveaway. I had chills looking at all your beautiful boards and hearing your stories. I am so appreciative of the amount of work and heart you all put into this. Most notably, I am truly inspired by you. Thank you.

The quality of your ideas was so high that when it came time to choose a winner, doing so became a nearly impossible task. There were so many wonderful boards and stories and I really couldn't decide. For this reason, I'm very excited to announce that I have chosen three winners! They are...

Kristina Kasparian, Linda Vuong, and Heather Wodhams

I absolutely can't wait to photograph the visions of these three amazing winners! All of their ideas are completely different, but each winner presented a striking and cohesive theme, and captured my heart with their creativity. Kristina, Linda, and Heather, I will be in touch with details and we can start planning your portrait sessions!

Once again, thank you so much to everyone who entered. You helped me celebrate the launch of my new website with your time and talent, and I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart.

In case you didn't hear, my new website launched yesterday! To celebrate the launch, I'm running contest that I hope will excite you as much as it does me.

If you read my About You page, you will learn that my clients greatly inspire my work: their passions, favourite things, and personal style. In inviting them to share themselves with me, every new portrait session becomes a fresh, eye-opening experience that keeps me creatively stimulated. Most importantly,   it enables me to to give each new client a personalized experience.

To garner a strong understanding of client tastes, I've increasingly been asking them to send me inspirational images or a link to a Pinterest board. This helps us communicate visually, and be on the same page, aesthetically speaking. In honour of this creative process, I introduce my contest:

INSPIRE ME Portrait Session Giveaway

Win a complimentary portrait session with Dallas Curow Photography.

Here's how it works:

1. Think of an idea or theme that inspires you, and that could inspire a portrait session.
2. Create a Pinterest board containing at least 10 images that clearly and cohesively represent your idea.
3. Fill out the form below, and be sure to include a link to your inspiration board.
4. Submit before the deadline of Monday, March 11, 2013 at midnight.

I will choose the board that I personally find most inspiring, and the winner will be announced on Friday, March 15, so be sure to check back!
