Happy Anniversary To Me!

February 15, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

I'm going to try to make this quick.  I say that a lot, usually when I am heading out the door or saying goodbye at a party and if you know me, you know it doesn't usually happen.  Let me say it again, I'm going to TRY to make this quick.  Doesn't mean it will be but I'm giving myself points for trying!

Today would have been my 29th wedding anniversary.  Five years ago we celebrated our last anniversary at home while my husband was very ill, but before that last anniversary, we always had a great time and gave gifts not just to each other but to our children and even the pets.  It's a day with special significance and always will be, despite the loss of my husband in 2016.  I'm sharing a photo from our 21st anniversary when we were just being weird and holding up fingers to make 21, that was just us. Goobers.

If you've been around for a while, you know that I have offered a giveaway on this day in the past - if you are new, get ready!  

One of the reasons I value photography so much is that it gives us a way to remember our loved ones long after they are gone.  Or just a way to remember how we used to be, how we have changed, and sometimes a way to celebrate growth within ourselves.  New baby's first steps, that graduation day, wedding day, a weight loss goal - we all have our reasons and they are all GOOD reasons.  

On days that are hard, I find giving to be the best medicine.  Giving something significant is even better medicine.  So I'm doing it again, this is the THIRD annual Scott Ringel Anniversary Remembrance Giveaway.  (My hubby would have been tickled to have his name on this, I'm sure.)  Here's how it will work this year:

I will give away THREE sessions that include a one hour session, an 11x14 print from the session and the option to buy the full gallery for $99 (regular price $1200).  There is no obligation to buy the gallery, winners can choose their favorite photo with no pressure at all.  Here's what you need to know to nominate someone for the contest:

  • I'm looking for ONE family who has a loved one fighting cancer and needs an updated family photo

 

  • I'm looking for ONE family with children on the autism spectrum who needs an updated family photo

 

  • I'm looking for ONE woman of any age who is a hero for any reason at all.  They are out there!

 

A few rules: Families MUST know you entered them and be on board.  In the past I spent a little time chasing down people who just weren't up to having photos, and that is OK, but for my sanity, please make sure they know! They need to be available to come to the Burlington area. The contest ends in ONE week, February 22, 2021.  So get your entries in!  And sessions MUST be held by June 30th. PLEASE do not nominate someone who is already working with a photographer, it is not my intention to steal a client from another professional.  

As a BONUS, any entries you send will receive a $200 voucher toward their next family session, so even if they aren't picked, they can still come in for a discounted session.  How to enter?  Send me an email using this contact form:   CLICK HERE

Here are some photos from our past giveaway sessions.  These were all so meaningful and warmed my heart. There are many more I could share and probably will over on my VIP group - join us there if you want to keep up with contest updates.  Click here to join:  WRP VIP
