Announcing the #writeshootlove Instagram Contest!

I am so excited to announce a fantastic contest in partnership with Tales of a Peanut!  Tales of a Peanut is a personal and pretty paper and gift shop.  Jennifer's mission is that words matter!  She wants everyone to use words to encourage, love, and make a difference in our families and communities.  I love that her mission of the Handwritten Heritage line of stationery is to document childhood and our families for future generations.  It is my goal to do the same with photographs, so we are a perfect pairing!

We are going to celebrate both our missions by announcing the #writeshootlove Instagram Contest!  We are going to have TWO winners and you do not have to live in Raleigh to win - awesome!

Handwritten Heritage is all about capturing and preserving your stories in writing.  There are 5 different packs available: Pregnancy and Birth, Early Parenthood, College Years, Milestones or Faith.  The prompts will inspire you to write your words of wisdom for your children.  Your kids want to hear from you - and see you in their childhood photos!  These letters are a perfect way to ensure your wisdom and advice is always there for them.

And for me, today is a chance to celebrate what keeps me motivated to shoot families - especially moms & kids.  My mom!  I would just love to have even a few letters from her from Handwritten Heritage.  They would be so valuable to me now.  So, let's take some meaningful photographs and write some thoughtful letters for our children's futures, shall we?  :-)  

WHAT YOU WILL WIN!

Both winners will receive the Milestone Handwritten Heritage pack, as well as another full Handwritten Heritage pack of their choosing.  And one winner will also receive a 20 minute mini session with me here in Raleigh, 10-15 digital files for printing up to 5x7, and a $50 print credit! The total value of this package is over $400!
