The Best Of......Salem, OR Photography

Happy New Year! I hope it finds you healthy and happy.


To ring in 2010 I decided to try something new.

Below are some of my personal favorites of 2009 and 2008 since I didn't do this last year and I don't want anyone to miss out.

I would like you to vote on which YOU think is the best. Each has a number. You can simply comment with the number, or say why you love the picture, if you know the person(s) in the picture, etc. It’s up to you!

Those who are nominated can vote for themselves, they can email every one they know to vote for them, but please only vote once per person! The more people you ask to come by the contest and vote, the better chance you have of winning……

What does the winner receive? A complimentary session for 2010, and the winning picture on a 11×14 mount.

To sweeten the deal, I will randomly pull a number from random.org, and that comment number will ALSO win a complimentary session for 2010! So it is critical when you comment to add your real email address when it ask for it. Voting ends Jan 10th.

Have fun and good luck!



Please use the number that is to the top left of each picture in your comments! please note, comments are moderated, no need to post twice they will show up once I approve them :)

#7! Totally captures that 'little girl' innocence!

Emily said...

#12 for a couple of reasons. One: She is my second cousin, two: she is adorable, three: she has a ton of personality, four: I love the photograph anyway.
