Speaking of winning…you know there are some prizes!! We have some great prizes in store for you!

1. Workshop Seat in Clickin’ MomsShooting 101: The Best Darn Beginner Class Ever = $300

Yes, you read that correctly! A seat in the BEST and ONLY beginner workshop I would recommend! I took this class about 2 years ago and WOW! I had been shooting on manual mode for 9 months at the time I took it and felt pretty comfortable but Lynne filled in so many holes for me. She is truly an amazing teacher who will go above and beyond to make sure you understand the material! I’m so excited for you guys! A workshop seat!! Whoo hoo!! If you aren’t familiar with Clickin’ Moms workshops you can read more about them in a post I wrote – Clickin’ Mom Workshops. Personally, I have taken 5 of their workshops – Shooting 101, Natural Light 101, Shooting 201, Processing 101: Lightroom Start to Finish, Shooting 301: Composition and Creativity, and just signed up for the Natural Light 201! Can you tell I think their workshops are the best and the only place I would spend my money!!! This 4 week workshop starts January 9th so you don’t have long to wait for it!

Learn to take pictures like this one by the instructor Lynne Rigby!

2. Tan or Red Leather Camera Necklace from Barberry and Lace = $23

Would you love to have this beautiful necklace added to your accessories! The winner will get to choose if they would like the tan or red leather camera necklace. Perfect Christmas gift!

3. $25 Gift Certificate to Better Life Bags

You must check out her store! She has a variety of homemade items with such wonderful and vibrant colors. You can’t go wrong ordering anything from her shop!

As always, please remember this is NOT A PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST! The winners will be chosen randomly. That means we could have up to 3 winners!! So what are you waiting for!

    Oh, I’m so excited. I already uploaded them tonight and got teared up looking through them. My son was born this year and my daughter has come into her two-year-old-ness so this year has been FULL of picture taking opportunities. So fun, can’t wait to share and learn from others!

    Thanks for including our puppies as well! I have one dog and many fosters that have come through our door this year. I only got my camera in October, but I think I can find 10 pics that I love!
