Hi Leslie,

I would love to get this because I have not been able to afford professional pictures of my family since Brandon was 3 months old (he's 3 1/2 now) and I would love to have some professional photos to look back on....and I know YOU take GREAT ones! Plus, I believe I am the first person you knew when you moved out here! heee heee!
Oh, and three entries.

Hi Leslie,

New website looks great.

Saw this posted from Susan Keller on FB. Just followed the blog, will go like FB page, and would love to be entered. Your style is beautiful. I'm a fellow Inland Empire photographer and of course, hardly ever get in on the pictures.

Melissa Lew Heddon said...

Hey Les, I love the new site! I was so excited and touched to see pictures of Corey and my first anniversary on there. It's been nearly two years since then and those pictures really capture us. It's amazing to see how much we've changed in that bit of time.

Anyway, I would love a session with you because I'd like to get family pictures with my mom, dad, Chris, Angela, Corey and I for my parents' 35th anniversary. Funny thing, is we've haven't done a group shot like that since I was a kid. With you, I know they'd be magical! melissalew@gmail.com

copelands said...

Hi Leslie,
I would love this photoshoot with you, because we have no professional family photos! Sad I know. You capture each person so wonderfully and I know the pics would turn out beautifully! I will have three entries. My email is copelands0508@yahoo.com!
Thanks!
Jaclyn

Melissa Lew Heddon said...

Opps - I forgot, I get 4 entries, I think. Oh, am I supposed to add a picture I find on your website on my fb? If I go do that, I get 5 entries!

Hi Leslie,

Congratulations on your new website!! I LOVED browsing through it and was shocked when I found a picture of me with Patrick when he was like 2....he's now 7. I still adore ALL the pictures you took that day and cannot get enough of your color and style. It's been 5 years and we're WAY overdue for a shoot from you (both our families have grown since then)....I'd love to win!! Your work is amazing!!!!!

Sherry Hornaday said...

Hi Leslie,
I finally figured out how to find this page...I'm slow at the whole blog thing (computers in general). Well, I would love to win a photo shoot simply because I would love to have you take my families pictures. We don't have a full family picture with Roy, myself, Holly, Sergei, Daniel, Erica, Riley and Alexis. It would be awesome to have you shoot us!! Wish me luck in the drawing!!! You do beautiful work!!

Amanda said...

Beautiful work Leslie! Put me down for 2 entries- 1 for the comment here and one for the FB like:) I really need to win because I have the most adorable children ever that love to have their pictures taken!

Allie said...

I have followed your blog for years since you photographed a family I nannied for during college. I have always longed to be able to have you photograph something, anything in my life! We just had our very first baby and would love to be able to do family pics but can't afford it right now. Put me down for 3 entries! Thanks for such an amazing giveaway! Blessings to you and your family, your blog and your testimony of your life has been a blessing to me over the years!

Totally in love with your new site... so beautiful, just like you. I want towin the giveaway because my photos from you are some of my most special photos of my family and i'd love to do it again since its been a few years. :)

I'm up to 5 entries... I blogged, facebooked, tweeted, commented here, found me and hubs in the "in love" section and I think thats all the opportunities.

Thanks so much leslie and good luck to everyone... :)

Edie van den Ordel said...

Hi Leslie

I would love love love to get this! My family has never had a "professional" photo shoot done, and usually Im the one behind the camera so I have lots of pics of my hubby and daughter, but very few of me and even fewer of just the 3 of us. Also, Im usually not that comfortable in front of the camera, but I have recently lost 120 lbs and would really like to document that loss with some updated photos of me.

As far as entries go, Im up to FOUR total. Im crossing my fingers that I get it, but if not I know who I can use when my family does decide to get a professional photo shoot done. :)

Katina said...

4 dogs, 3 grandparents, 2 children, and a chaotic household. We are short on funds this year and it would be a great present to all our family, near and far, to have pics done for them as a Christmas present of all of us!
We want to stay local with this many of us! Hope we win:-)
Have a blessed day!

Hmm....this is super easy & I hope I made it on time! ;) Please put me in for 4 entries. I follow your new blog, follow you on FB, Posted on twitter, left a comment w/ email addy dagorgeouses at g mail dot com :)

Why I'd love to win? Well, other than having an excuse & getting to me you IRL, it's really time we had another family pic done.

Hugs & Blessings!
