Well, we did it! I say ‘we’ because I couldn’t have done it without you!!! Thank you so much for helping me achieve this incredible milestone! I am new to the photography business world and I am thrilled that so many of you ‘like’ me…they like me they really like me! Sorry just had to say that!

To thank the fans I have decided to throw a 300 Fan Giveaway. 300 fans since my facebook launch in April is something to praise and celebrate!! So I want to show you all a little Love for showing me A LOT OF LOVE!!!! Everything in life is a learning experience and I’ve learned so much in such a short amount of time! I’ve learned that my fans’ support can give me such a high that I just want to keep soaring! I want to keep growing as an artist and make you proud. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for helping me achieve my dreams of becoming a photographer. I pretty much have it all now! A wonderful husband who supports me, an amazing 20 month old son that makes me laugh each day and on occasion lets me take his picture, and wonderful friends and family who encourage me to reach my goals and pursue a career that I have wanted to do for the past 5 years. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!

But enough blabbering!! Now to the good part!!!

Here is how the 300 Fan Giveaway Contest will work {please read to the very end so you know all the rules}:

You, the fan, will have to go to each vendor’s facebook page and ‘like’ their page and comment on their wall saying:

“Thank you for being a part of Jennifer Willard Photography Canada’s 300 fan giveaway! You rock!”

{just copy and paste it- I will still count your vote if you do a variation of this}…use the @ symbol before Jennifer for it to show up on the list to pick – you have to ‘like’ me first for this to work….and then go back to my website www.jenniferwillardphotography.ca and comment under the 300 Fan Giveaway Contest and say that you visited ALL the vendors and told them they rocked!!! You must visit all the vendors and ‘like’ their page and comment with the above sentence {or a variation of it} for this comment entry to count. {you just need one comment at the end of this post, not 20! – easier for you not to forget who you’ve already commented on} You must also ‘like’ and use the comment above on my Facebook page Jennifer Willard Photography Canada which is shown on the vendor list below.

{I will check at the end of the contest for any duplicates and to make sure all the pages were liked if you win just so it’s fair for everyone}

Bonus Entry #1!!!:

The bonus entry for fans is to go to each vendors website or etsy shop {if available} and come back and comment about something you loved there {I will double check that the product exists if you win!} come back to my website www.jenniferwillardphotography.ca and the 300 Fan Giveaway and comment that you went to that specific vendor and loved….{fill in the blank}… This can give you an extra 20 bonus entry’s!!!

Bonus Entry #2
If you live in the Kingston-Ottawa Region in Ontario, Canada you could win a free mini session with Jennifer Willard Photography!!! If you live in this area please add the comment “I want to win the mini session!” to the end of each comment you leave on here and your name will be drawn into a separate draw for a free mini session! The session will take place in my home-studio and will include 10-15 High-Resolution Images on a DVD for you to print as you like. This session must take place in 2011.

That gives you TONS of ways to win!!!! Crazy right?!!!

At the end of the contest I will choose a winner through random.org and contact the winner and let them know that they won. I will then give their email address to each vendor and the vendor will contact the fan to say congratulations and set up delivery of the prize. The vendor will be responsible for cost of shipping to anyone in North America. Anyone international will have to pay the cost above North American rates. I think it gives an opportunity for fans to find new companies they may want to do business with or buy products from. And a chance to win a great prize!!!

I’m very excited!!! And hope you are too!

The Vendors Contact Information:  THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!! WILL SEND EMAILS SHORTLY!!

As with any Giveaway using Facebook, you may have to open a few browsers so that Facebook doesn’t kick you out for ‘Liking’ too many pages all at once.

The contest will run from noon EST on Friday, July 8th to noon EST on Friday, July 15th. There will be a winner for each prize!!! If you do not want your prize for whatever reason {ex. you are not a photographer and a backdrop or template won’t work for you} please let me know and we will re-draw a name or perhaps you can work out a deal with the vendor to gift your prize to the photographer you use for your family portraits. There are no alternate prizes unfortunately!!! I will contact all winners through email so please make sure to put down a valid email address {I know many of you are in multiple giveaways so it’s easier for me to contact you!}. I know many of you will be going on vacation this summer so I will wait two weeks to hear back from you to claim your prize. If you do not claim your prize a new name will be drawn for your prize.

Winners will be announced on Saturday, July 16th – so stay tuned!

p.s. your comments have to be approved so no worries if you don’t see it appear right away!

Good luck everyone!!!

Love Always,

Jen
