Picture me standing on top of my dining table–this morning–screaming “WOO-HOOOOOOO!!!!!” Now picture me doing a little tap dance on top of the dining table, and now I’m throwing blueberries to the kids, as I go crazy giddy over our latest project and partnership to launch!!
Last October, the Nielsen Photo Group approached me and Brian about becoming partners and collaborating together on some pretty awesome projects. Who is the Nielsen Photo Group? Well, first they are a part of the Nielsen company that does all the TV ratings…yep, they are a BIG company. The Nielsen Photo Group division does PDN (the Photo District News magazine and website), Photo Plus Expo (the HUGE tradeshow in NY ever year), WPPI (the biggest Wedding and Portrait Photographers International expo in Vegas every year), and Rangefinder magazine. It’s safe to say that they are one of the most successful and influential brands in the world of photography. When the VP approached me, who is this warm, beautiful, business savvy woman, and asks if we’d be interested in talking about partnering…I’m listening. All that to say, they have been a total JOY to work with for the last ten months! This partnership has been more wonderful than I could have first imagined! And today, TODAY, we launch our first project together the New Beginnings Photo Contest!!!
One of the most popular requests from all of you is MORE Photo Contests. It’s been a while since we’ve hosted one on the blog. Now you know why! LOL!! We’ve been working away on a photo contest that is larger than anything else we’ve ever done. And we won’t be limited to highlighting the top five photos, we will get to feature new submissions every week! I’ll be picking faves and giving them critiques! And there is even a Kids Click category that I’m crazy about! How many of you would agree that our kids, with no training, take the most amazing photos! The winner of that category gets a $250 GC to Toys R Us–if you want mom, we will keep it a secret so you can use it for his Christmas presents! 🙂 We are also tying up the judges! Wait till you see who these awesome people are!!
Go check it out!!! The first 25 people to enter get fun door prizes!!!
And meet me tonight at 6pm PST for the Twitter Party! We are talking about photography, confidence, creativity, balance as a mom, and more! Bring your questions, I’m so excited to party with all of you and have a candid conversation about our passions!
