Kate Crabtree, a photography giveaway

I am currently eating my first breakfast for the Clean Food Challenge. I realized last night, after eating a lot of food and sweets after my run, that I am really ready for this.  Bring it, CFC.

Meanwhile, it's time for a great giveaway, and there is a potential prize for you if you are local OR far away from Maine.   Read on:


Kate Crabtree is a photographer and a friend of mine who has recently started her photography business here in Bangor, Maine.  She photographs people and places, landscapes and details, and she has a good eye both for composition and for color.  Here are three of her photos that capture what I love about Maine.




You can see more of her work over here on her website. She also has some beautiful prints in her Etsy shop over here, and even more choices on her facebook page over here.

Kate and I are teaming up this week to bring you a great giveaway.
  
Here are the details:
The prize is either an 8x 10 print of any one of her photos of your choice.
-OR-
A free portrait session (a $150 value) for local folks.  Kate does not photograph babies, but she does work with older children or families or couples.  Look through the portraits on her website for an idea of what she does so well.  You could meet Kate in Bangor or she would travel further, but charges for more than 25 miles outside of town.  She photographs outside with natural light, but other plans can be arranged. 

If you choose the portrait session, you would be able to order prints from a gallery of 20 photos.

In order to enter:

Get ready to LIKE!  To win Kate's prize, you need to LIKE three facebook pages:
One Mom in Maine
Kate Crabtree photography   and
Sparrow Magazine  (Kate will be doing some photos for Sparrow Mag for us!)

Then just leave a comment here telling us you are all liked up, and whether you would like a print OR a portrait sitting.  We will choose one random winner on Friday at 5:00 pm.  Spread the word!

I like everyone. If we come to Maine this year I'd love a session. But if you'd need a 'for sure' to be safe I'd love a print. Ran doesn't really know this yet but I'm planning a vow renewal next Fall in Maine on Schoodic. Maybe we could get her to take pictures!

Zoe K said...

Donedonedone. Can the portraits be done at any time? I wouldn't need them right now, but perchance within a year?
