Just a reminder to submit your entries for the location contest by midnight tonight, June 30, 2011 for your chance to win a complimentary session (NO session fee!) and a $50 print credit to be used toward the purchase of your prints.
I received 3 new entries this morning so I will be spending the weekend checking them out. Any entries submitted between now and midnight will be looked at tomorrow before the winner is chosen.
Don’t miss your chance to win a free session – submit your entries now!
PS- Stay tuned for the announcement of the winner (by the 8th) and also for the details of the upcoming session opportunities.


I wanted to take a minute to thank everyone who has sent in their entry for the ‘Location Contest’ (see previous entry for details) so far. The contest is open until the end of June, so keep the entries coming – there is no limit for how many entries you can submit.
I have received more than 10 entries so far and I have already checked most of them out. You all have a great eye!
It’s going to be very difficult choosing a winner because all of the locations look great, but ultimately the decision will be made based upon which spot is the very best suited for photography.
Thanks for your participation so far, I have enjoyed looking into all of the locations you’ve submitted. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!

It’s time for someone to win some prizes!
Guess what Iowa!  I'm going to open my Location, Location, Location contest to include you too!  I’m always looking for cool new locations to photograph my clients when they prefer an outdoor setting. So, if you have a cool location in mind then please pass it my way. Here are a few things to keep in mind – I currently frequent a lot of the public parks so those will not count as qualifying entries, also I try to keep my clients costs down, so I really love free locations. I love areas with a lot of shade and plenty of color. And, as always, the place should be child friendly. It can be anywhere in Ames or surrounding 10 miles.  

Contest Details:
  • Email me at Holly@H2photography.biz with your location entry spot.
  • Please title your e-mail “New Location Contest Entry - Iowa”.
  • Entries will be accepted through August 8, 2011.
  • I will personally visit each of the location entry spots and determine which one would be the best for portrait sessions.
  • I will e-mail the winner and then make an announcement on the blog on August 13th, 2011.
  • Photo session must be used between August 14-19, 2011
Here’s what you win!
The winner will receive a COMPLIMENTARY portrait session at the winning location!
*The fine print: “complimentary session” means the current session fee of $175 is waived for the contest winner at the winning location.
Any questions? Feel free to email me! I can’t wait to check out your entries and share the winning images!
Be creative and keep the location ideas coming. There is no limit on how many entries you can submit
