Jane M. - Winner of our 2nd Giveaway - 10 Valentine's Notecards - Riverview, FL Photographer

For our 2nd Giveaway, Jane won a set of 10 note cards for Valentine's day featuring her children.  We met Jane at a farm in Brooksville, FL for family photo shoot.  Jane has a lovely family.  A few days before the shoot her lovely young daughter donated her hair to locks of love.  When Jane found out that she won -she reported that she never wins anything so we are SO glad her name was chosen by the computer as our lucky winner.  Who knows maybe her luck has changed?? 020813 williams valentine card

Our First Giveaway!! LDE Photography 20x30 Collage from Shutterfly

I'm excited about blessing people.  My job as a mental health professional can be so stressful at times.  You just get bogged down with trying to adapt the system to the needs of the children and families in need.  Photography is my way to be around people, animals and the Earth in general in a positive way.  It is a reminder of the beauty that still exists here.  Despite evil.  Lurking and troublesome. The giveaway program randomly chooses the winner once you hit a button so I was excited no matter who was on the winning end of our giveaway, but when Holly's name flashed across the screen, I smiled inside and out.  I called Dave right away to tell him.

She has the greatest smile, a wicked sense of humor and we could talk endlessly.  Holly was a month ahead of me when we were pregnant and she has the most adorable twin babies.  It is wonderful that they pretty much enter the next phase and prep our family for the next developmental phases!!  When ever I begin to stress about navigating an outing with Bryan, I am reminded that Holly does it (with help from a wonderful family she credits constantly) but still -with TWO!

Holly's attitude about life is amazing -always hopeful and looking ahead.  I call her when I need a gentle nudge toward a better attitude about things.  She's the kind of person you'd find yourself doing just about anything for in this world.  She makes it so easy to love her.  She just accepts you where you are and that is worth so much in this world.

She inspires me.  So, I am so glad that she has won the collage.  She used photos from our Christmas session of the twins.  Thank you for all the support of LDE.  We love taking photos of your family.

ENJOY!!  with love, Larissa
