Giveaway: Free Photo Session and High-Res CD

If you have had any personal contact with me, you know that I adore our family photographer, Kelsey Bigelow. Her images of my family have made my heart melt and I sing her praises to anyone that is in need of a photo session.

I first met Kelsey when she was referred to me by a mom that I know. She had done a maternity session with my husband and me before the birth of our son, Sam. Since Sam’s birth, she has visually documented his 3 month, 6 month, and (most recently) his 9 month pictures. We have another session scheduled for Sam’s 1st birthday party in early April.

Win it: Kelsey Bigelow has generously offered one lucky Wilson Family Adventure reader a free 2 hour photo session at the local location of your choice. You will also receive a high resolution CD of all of the photos so that you can print them yourself. That’s a $200 package for FREE!!

Mandatory Entry: Head on over to Kelsey Bigelow Photography Blog and, after viewing her portfolio, come back and comment on how you would use your session (an event, yearly family photos, baby pictures, Mother’s Day photos, engagement session, boudoir, etc.). This entry is mandatory and none others will be counted if this is not completed. *Remember to include your email address in your comment if it is not visible on your profile or you will be disqualified.

  4. I would use it for my daughters 9 or 12 month photo session with some family photos. Or if I got brave I would do boudoir photos for the hubby. (amwadas@gmail.com)

  5. Winner announced on 2/4?? That may be too tight, but ideally I would love the session for my son's first birthday party on 2/6. Pictures really are a family's most beloved treasure. It's often the first thing people grab in a fire or the one thing people hold onto for YEARS, when everything else becomes obsolete. Times are tight for a lot of families right now. Ours is one of those. My husband was laid off just a week ago and we're struggling to find that financial balance for our family. This session would mean the world to us as we document the celebration of our son's first year. Family is flying in from out of state and our friends will all be with us. What precious memories that we'd love to capture professionally.

  6. As you know, we adopted two wonderfully crazy toddlers last year. We have yet to have professional photos taken with them. We are starting another new chapter in our lives--moving back to Southern California and we would love to make personalized "we are moving" cards with the kids photos

  29. Our son is about to turn 15 months old, and as his birthday is just before Halloween, his 1 year photo got pushed back with all the holiday season hustle & bustle.

    If he were to win this gracious offer, one thing we would love to do is include his grandparents. His paternal grandmother just turned 80 this week, and he is the first grandchild for his maternal grandparents who just turned 70. All we have is some candid pictures of him with them, and having the opportunity to include them in this would be wonderful. What memories that will be!

    Thanks for extending this offer, no matter who wins. : )

  56. What an EXCITING giveaway! If I won I'd use her services for a 2 year old photoshoot! We haven't done prof pics of our little girl since she was 6 months old! Since then we've just snapped our own and I miss the quality of the prof pics. Every little girl deserves 2 y/o pics right?! ;)
