Wow! Never in my wildest dreams....


Hello and welcome to my blog!!! I'm sooooo excited that you are here!!! I'm so excited that I am here!!!! Wow! I don't even know where to start!!!! Hmmm....maybe the beginning??? Okay, here goes!!!


Ok, so a year ago, God totally provided me with my first camera! It was the Canon Rebel and I was just a bit excited to say the least!!! I started taking pictures for fun and what begin as a hobby soon blossomed into a passion!!! I poured my heart and soul into it and studied, learned, practiced, asked ALOT of questions and wow...what can I say but that I LOVE taking pictures...I am amazed everyday at what God has done...I'm so thankful for this gift!!!


So, to celebrate this wonderful year...I want to give back to YOU!!! Everyday during the month of January, I will be giving away something! I know it's my birthday but I would rather give gifts to YOU! After all, I would not have this opportunity if not for YOU!!!


So, here's what you have to do!!! Most of the days I will be giving away something totally awesome from some friends that own their businesses and have pages on Facebook!!! I want to spread the word about how awesome they are, so, we have some rules to follow in order to be entered in the daily drawing!!! You must first of all "like" their page and of course my page! You then must post somewhere online, your blog, Facebook or twitter a link back to my blog! (this is very easy to do, just copy and past the URL) You also must comment here on my blog that you did so!!! I will be checking, so no cheating!!! Every morning, I will reveal the winner from the previous day...it's that easy!!!


So...are you ready for the first giveaway? It's a BIG one and it will go all month long!!! I am giving away a wedding!!!! YES, you read it right, a WEDDING!!! There are some rules though!!! This must be an out of town wedding! It cannot be held in FL or GA. To enter, please email me at julie@juliepaisleyphotography.com a picture of you and your {love} with a a short story of how you met, where your wedding will be held and any and all details about your big day!!! I will announce the winner on Feb. 1st!


Now, I know everyone is not getting married so I won't leave you out!!! I will also be giving away a mini-session ($125 value) for this first day of give-aways!! So, like my page, comment and link! Make sure you tell your friends what is going on at JPP!!!!


Oh and one more thing...I would not be where I am without my wonderful clients! Thank you for sharing me with your friends! My business has totally been built from word of mouth and I have YOU to thank for it! So....here's what I'm doing for you!!! I'm giving away to one person 50% off sessions for LIFE!!! Yes, FOR LIFE!!! But...this is big so yes, there are some rules for this one too!!! You must link my blog and website somewhere online each day and comment on the blog that you did so...the good thing is that you will be also be entered in the daily drawing too...as long as you "like" the page of the other vendors! WooHoo!!! Tell the world!!! This winner will be announced on Feb. 1st.


I'm truly grateful for what has happened this year with JPP! I'm even more excited for 2011! Thank you for your support...I truly count you all as friends!

Julie

  33. Hi Julie, I've never met you but I have a ton of friends who have recommended you and done photoshoots with you. Your talent is amazing and your photos are breathtaking! I'm really looking forward to scheduling a photoshoot with you. I slacked off on having family photos after having my second daughter last year. Now that I think about it, I haven't paid for a single photoshoot with her since she was born! :-/ My husband and I just bought a house a few months ago and really need some updated pictures to hang on the walls!

    Anyway, sorry for the ramble! I just posted a link to your site on my facebook page :)

  35. Julie,
    Your website is as wonderful as your pics always are, of course! Thanks for all the beautiful pictures you have taken of Charlie and of our family over the last year! I just posted a link to your website on Facebook. Congratulations on completing your first year as a photographer! I hope this year is just as fabulous for you! I would love to win the Life package, as would everyone else I'm sure. That way I can keep bringing Charlie and Haley Grace and any of our other children to you over the years! :)
    Love,
    Rachel Franklin
