#22- Kristy

Congratulations!!  Contact me to claim your prize 🙂

Thank you to everyone who entered.  It brought me such joy to read all the wonderful things you said about me.  It really made me realize how much we tend to take people in our lives for granted and don’t take the time to say thank you for what they do for us.  I’ll admit, I’m always looking for validation . . . . when I send a gallery out to a client, I get worried when I don’t hear anything back.  When I post photos on facebook, I check back often for comments.  But it never really dawned on me that other people in my life would want/need that same validation.  It has made me stop and think about all the people in my life who don’t have a way of getting that positive feedback.

So, I’ve decided to make a better attempt at really letting the people in my life know that what they do is important and that I appreciate what they do.  My first step today is giving my UPS guy a thank you note with a Starbucks gift card.  🙂

I want to encourage everyone out there to do something nice today.  Even if it as simple as telling someone you like their sweater.

Kelly - Erin, this is such a sweet post. I have been reading the book ‘365 Thank Yous’. You would love this book as it’s in this same vein of thought. I’d offer you my copy when I am done but I’m a ridiculously slow reader and its going to take me forever to finish this short book. lol

Congrats to Kristy!

Kristy - I am so excited Erin!!! Thank you so much and you are right….we take too much in life for granted. I have gained so much more from you in these last few months than just pictures. Thank you! Oh yeah…I am going to need your suggestion for the canvas 🙂

Win a FREE 11×14 canvas! {Delaware Wedding and Portrait Photographer}

Canvases are amazing.   They really are.  My clients always love them, but they are not cheap and not everyone can afford to purchase one.  So here’s your chance to WIN a free 11×14 gallery wrapped canvas!  You can either get an image from a previous session made into one or save it for an upcoming session.  Here are two canvases of my kids before they went up on the wall.  We get so many compliments on these!

 

Here are the details:

I want you to go out into the great world wide web and write some reviews about your experience with Erin Farrell Photography.  That means you must either be a current or a past client of mine.  Then come back and post the link where you wrote your review.  Pretty simple, huh?

You can enter up to 5 different times.  And don’t feel like you need to write a different review for each site – just copy & paste! 🙂

  1. Leave a review for me on www.weddingwire.com
  2. Leave a review for me on www.google.com
  3. Leave a review for me on www.yahoo.com
  4. Leave a review on my facebook fan page
  5. Write a review on your own personal/business blog with a link to my website

In order for me to count your entry, you must leave a SEPARATE comment on this blog post for each review you wrote.   I will then randomly draw a number to determine the winner.  The more reviews you leave, the better your chance to win!

Contest ends next Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011 at noon.

(oh, and for those of you who have previously left reviews on any of those sites — no need to write it again, just send me the link)

Happy Reviewing! 🙂

Baby Z {Newark, Delaware Newborn Photographer}

I’ve been photographing this family for the last two and half  years and it has been a pleasure to watch little J grow into such a little sweetheart (I don’t have their first session on the blog anymore, but you can see the last two years HERE and HERE).  And now they’ve recently added a baby boy to the mix!  Little Z is just the cutest little baby ever!

Kim Lindsey - BEAUTIUFUL photos Erin 🙂

Evelyn - So cute!! I absolutely adore that last one!

The M Family {Newark Delaware Baby and Family Photographer}

The last time I photographed this family, little G was just 4 months old. Two years later and they’ve added 6 month old twins to the mix!  Mom and Dad certainly have their hands full, but they take it all in stride and when you see how adorable and sweet and kind-hearted their children are, they couldn’t possibly feel anything else than blessed.

The super sweet and adorable twins, K and J.  Seriously some of the happiest, laid back babies I’ve ever met.  I cannot wait to see how they look as the grow up!delaware family photographer, delaware twin baby photographer, newark delaware child photographer

Big brother, G, and I headed outside to play for a little while the babies took a snack break.

Some one on one time with the babies.  First up is K — he’s the big teddy bear of the twosome.  Those deep brown eyes  and arm rolls just melt me.

And J – his sparkling blue eyes just pop out at you.  And that mouth!  Whenever he got excited (which was most of the time), he just opened it up wide!

Once the babies went down for a nap, I also got some pictures of G with mom and dad.  I just adore this one:
