There *is* one near me!!!

I would love the giveaway! There are 12 of us in my family each year who go and get Christmas pictures done. The place we used to go to is under new management and is horrid now. So I would love to give Portrait Innovations a try!

Oh please enter me!! I so want in on this exciting give-a-way!! There is a Portrait Innovations near me. Mom mom has taken my little sister there every year for the past 4 years! They take great pictures and I think their prices are fair! And Cayman just turned 1 1/2 years old. She has changed her looks so much since her one year photos and I would love to get her back into a photo studio for some updated portraits!

Great job on 500 posts!! It got me wondering, how many posts am I at, so I looked. I'm on your heels, trailing at 482. :-) Yay for blogging!!

Hi Sarah
I would like to be in the running for the gift certificate.
I would like some portraits taken of my daughter Agnes. She is almost 6 months old and she has Down Syndrome.
She is a football fan, too but she likes to cheer for USC!

Sincerely, Kathleen in Los Angeles
