Free session anyone??

So, by now you have heard about the 2010 the World Should Know Calendar and read my shameless promotion to sell 2010 Calendars … after all, Love WINS in 2010!!!

Well, I’ve decided to up the ante … BIGTIME and I am so stinking excited to do it because after all, Giving is Awesome!  Last year I participated in the Giving is Awesome campaign founded and carried through by my lovely friend Kristen Kalp.  All of you nominated families that were deserving of a complimentary photo session and I had the pleasure of meeting the Jones Family last year during our shoot in January.

Well, this year, instead of having a nomination contest, we wanted to give you the opportunity to spread your love.  We are offering …

A Complimentary Photo Shoot AND the High Resolution Files with a Print Release from your session to ONE person who has purchased a 2010 The World Should Know Calendar!

Total Giveaway is worth $2250!!!!

The fine Print 🙂

1. The shoot must take place in the Dallas/ Fort Worth Texas area before July 2010.
*If you live out of state and want to make a trip to Texas, you can win!

2. The session is for one immediate family or siblings, a couple, or individual (no events or large groups)

3. Proof of your donation to Revive Africa by purchase of at least one 2010 The World Should Know Calendar

5. You can enter more than once by purchasing more calendars. Each calendar equals one chance!  OR spread the word via facebook, twitter or your own blog.  Each link where you did so equals another chance!

Angela Miller: Hi Crystal, I had a friend who did pictures with you this summer and periodically look back at your site. I love your work and think the calendars are great! I ordered mine just today...I know it's last minute, but hopefully I didn't miss the drawing. :) (Jan 28, 2010 at 12:09 pm)
Lisa: Hey Crystal- You already know how much I love the calendars:) but let me say again how absolutely gorgeous the kids are and how beautifully you've captured their souls. I'll also tell you again - you've been given an amazing gift! I so appreciate that you use your gift to bring God glory and to bless these precious ones. May you be blessed for your many acts of love and kindness toward the "least of these" whom we are called to serve. When I give away a calendar, I'm always excited to tell friends and family about Revive Africa and about your awesome talent! Looking fwd to the next one:) (Jan 12, 2010 at 17:57 pm)
