The Prize:

An amazing photo shoot with Isabella of Ella Photography and makeup by me. You will receive a CD of your awesome photos.  Please note** The Winner's story and photos will be published on both Ella Photography as well as my blog.
To give you an idea, here is my story...  A few months ago, my "day job" went through another restructuring.  I was placed in a position where my current role was terminated but was given the option to pursue something totally different from what I normally did at work.  With only a few hours to decide and several deep breaths, I decided to walk away from the place that was a part of my life for over five years.  Scared, nervous and really overwhelmed, I knew in that moment it was the right thing for me.  I did not want to feel stuck in a job that I didn't like for the sake of having a job.  Luckily for me I have an incredible mother who is super supportive and reminded me that when one door closes another one opens.  This was a chance for me to pursue something new but more importantly what I love.  With those words of wisdom came a flood of love and support from so many people, also a lot of opportunities too!  Now here I am, trying to give you the same love and support that I've been so fortunate to receive.

So what are you waiting for?!?!? What ever it is, a new career, just graduated or contemplating where you want to go in life or even over coming adversity; just SUBMIT YOUR STORY and let's celebrate with an awesome photo shoot and makeup too.  I'm big on snacks so don't be surprise it cupcakes are thrown your way hehehe.

It's important to remember these moments; celebrate your victories and celebrate the challenges you learned from.

Accepting entries until June 25th 2011 11:59pm

Bethany's Boudoir Shoot

I initially met Bethany during my internship a few years ago.  She always had this rocking personality with a look that could be summed up as "the Girl next door", or at least that is what I thought!  This shoot totally changed my perspective.  In some of her shots, she resembles Britney Spears but you can see for yourself.
