Brighter Friday and a giveaway!

June 15, 2012

So I wanted to post this last Friday but life happened and I was pulled away from the office.  So here it is a week later. First I want to thank my family, friends and fans for your amazing support.  I have been in business for a year and I can’t believe how much I have grown not only in my business but as an artist and a person. I feel like I have received so much.  I have a huge support group in the industry that continues to challenge me and help me along the way.  Business wise I wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t for my P31sisters and Showit.  To them I say thank you from the bottom of my heart.  And because I have received and have been blessed beyond my expectations I want to bless someone else, as well.  I am giving a complementary one hour photo session with 20 high resolution images and print rights to one lucky person.

How can you win, you ask?  Well it’s super easy:

  1. “Like” Lydia Gillis Photography page on Facebook.  If you already “like” my page, thank you!  You can still participate!
  2. Share the following on your Facebook page:  “@Lydia Gillis Photography is giving away a complimentary one hour photo session with twenty high resolution images and print rights! This is valued at $350.00!  Check it out at  Brighter Friday and a giveaway/for more details.”
  3. Comment below and tell me you did step 1 and 2!  It’s that easy!

Certain restrictions apply:

This give away has no cash value

Weddings and special events are excluded

Photo Session must take place within 60 miles radius from Eugene, Or.

The last chance to enter is June 28th until midnight.  I will announce the winner on Friday, 29th!


And because this is “Brighter Friday”, I couldn’t leave without posting some awesome pictures I took of the beautiful flower arrangement I made from my garden. 🙂

    I would love to get a session with the 2 most important people in my life: my mother and my daughter. 3 generations of love and support. I’ve been looking for a good photographer. Maybe I will win (fingers Crossed)
