Sharing some excitement!
Also visit my Beyond the Photography by DonnaKay blogspot @ http://beyondthephotographybydonnakay.blogspot.com ... a little better way to get to know more about me personally...
This may not be as exciting for everyone else as it is for me - but I was nominated for a local "Best of Cleveland County 2011" contest - & I WON 1st Place for Photographer! I'm a newer photography business, so I was just excited to get my name on the list - but am ECSTATIC to have won! It comes out in the newspaper (full page ad) 7/31!!
(Once the ad is out, I will show it off in a blog...so stay tuned!!)
SO NOW WHAT?!! Well, now I have to prove myself even more. My initial excitement when I found out that I had been nominated and my name was included on the ballot was for the exposure. I'm a newer photographer in the area, so many people (including people that I know) don't know anything about what I do. Hopefully now they will take a peak at my work. If they are on facebook, they'll check out my facebook fan page, then look at my website and see what it is that I do. And if I've done my work well enough, they will send me a contact form for an appointment.
Photography is such a wonderful art. To be able to share in some special time in someone's life, whether that day is a new baby, an engagement, a birthday, wedding day or just a Monday! I am so blessed to be able to do what I love so much -- and to hopefully add smiles, tears and laughter to lives from the photos that I take. I would be honored to share in your special day and capture those moments. And when you talk to your friends, refer me for their photography needs.
I sincerely look forward to working with you one day really soon!!
