1,000 Fans Giveaway Part 2!

January 19, 2012

And as promised, here is the second giveaway to honor reaching 1,000 fans!!

The Details:

This giveaway is for one Fabric Crown of your choice from my shop.  This only includes the ones you see in my shop and not custom ones.  I will be adding more to the shop this week.

This giveaway is open to EVERYONE!!!  If you are local and entered to first giveaway, you are still eligible to enter this one!!!

The winner will be chosen by a random number generator on Saturday, January 28 and will be announced here, on the blog.

How to Enter:

For entry number one, make sure you like my page, then go to my shop and leave a comment here letting me know which one you like best.  Easy peasy.

For entry number two, post about this giveaway on your status update then come back here and leave a comment letting me know you did, along with a link to your page so I can verify it.  Make sure you set the status so it is “public” otherwise I can’t verify it and your entry will be deleted.


The fine print:  This giveaway is in no way associated with Facebook.  It is solely sponsored by Saflower Photography.  There is no cash value for the prizes  and there is no purchase necessary.

I have to approve all comments, so if it doesn’t show up, it’s OK.  It will be there as soon as I approve it.

Wow, 1,000 fans!  Seems a little hard to believe.  In honor of all my fans I will be doing 2 separate giveaways.  This one is for local San Diegans only!  I am giving away a full photo session for up to 5 people.  The shoot includes about an hour of my time, on location, plus you will also get a DVD with approximately 20 images.  There will be a nominal charge if there are more than 5 people.

The giveaway winner will be selected by a random number generator on Friday, January 27, 2012 and will be announced here, on my blog.

A second giveaway for the non-local fans will be posted tomorrow.


The Details:  You have 2 opportunities to enter.

For entry number 1, make sure you like my fan page and then leave a comment here on this blog post telling me that you “liked” it.  Pretty easy huh?

For entry number 2, just post about this giveaway on your Facebook page.  A sample status update would look something like this:

“Saflower Photography is giving away a photo session in San Diego.  Go check it out!

Make sure it is set to the public setting because I will be checking.  Once you have done that, just come back here and leave me a second comment with a link to your page so I can verify it.


The session will be held in the San Diego area.  If you are not local, you can either give the session as a gift, or there will be a separate giveaway posted tomorrow.


The fine print:  This giveaway is in no way associated with Facebook.  It is solely sponsored by Saflower Photography.  There is no cash value for the prizes  and there is no purchase necessary.

Some people are getting an “error” when they try and post a comment.  The comments are indeed going through and will show up as soon as I approve them.

I’ve decided it’s time for another giveaway!  For this giveaway, I want you to nominate a family that you think is deserving of a free photo session with Saflower Photography.  Do you know a family that is going through some hardships, or maybe a family where a loved one is about to be deployed?  Maybe there is a family out there that has helped you or the community in some way and you would like to give back to them.  You may not nominate yourself! In a couple months I will do another giveaway where you can enter yourselves.

To nominate a family, all you have to do is send an email to with “giveaway” in the subject line, telling me about the family and why you want to nominate them.  They need to live in the San Diego or King City/Lockwood area, or be willing to travel there.  I will have a few impartial judges select the three that they think are most deserving.  I will then share the stories with you and put it up for a vote.  Please have your nomination in by January 21, 2011.

I want to say thank you to all the wonderful people that have become fans of Saflower Photography on Facebook.  Now that my page has reached 100 fans, it is time for a giveaway!

What you get: 1-2 hours with me and my camera, a CD with all the images, and an 8×10 of your choice. I specialize in children’s and family portraits, but can do engagements, best friends, siblings, pets, etc.  Pretty much anything except weddings.

Who is eligible: Anyone in San Diego County, Southern Monterey County and Northern SLO County.  If you do not live in one of these locations, but you are willing to travel to them, then you may enter too.

Who is ineligible: Anyone I am related to.   Anyone outside of the stated areas that are not willing to travel.  Anyone looking for wedding photos.  I DO NOT do weddings.  Never have, never will.  I can do engagement photos, but not weddings.

How to enter: All you have to do is leave me a comment on this post telling me what your favorite color is and what type of photo you are interested in.  Want another chance to win?  Tell your Facebook friends, via a status update, about this giveaway and post a link to it in another comment on this post (make sure you use the setting that makes it visible to everyone, not just friends, or else I can’t see it if you are not on my friend list).  Make sure you leave two separate comments if you choose to do the Facebook one.  Comment number one is your color and type of photo.  Comment number two is a link to your Facebook so I can see your status.

How the winner is picked:  I will be using a random number generator to choose the winner.  The winner will be picked on Monday, February 15.

And just because a post can’t be without a photo, here is my boy.
