Although I have been “taking” pictures for what seems like forever, I consider August 2009 as the birth month of the professional Southern Expressions Photography. I was already “legal,” but I hadn’t taken the step of branding, marketing materials, and a website. I guess it finally dawned on me that this is real. People really do like my work and want to hire me. Fast-forward 3 years, business is booming mainly due to word-of-mouth. Facebook has been a HUGE part of that!! Not only do I get to shoot what I love, I also get to mentor other photographers because they have found me on Facebook. I LOVE what I do! I love taking pictures and I love teaching others the basics of photography so I decided that I wanted to do something a little something fun for all of my fans/friends. I have never hosted a giveaway (other than my own services) before so I think it’s time to do just that!
When I started contacting vendors, the response was so overwhelming that I am breaking it into 2 parts. If any additional vendors want to get in on the second round, just message me.
