Thanks to everyone who voted in the Thank You 2011 photo of the year contest. And a big, fat, gigantic hug of a THANK YOU to all my 2011 clients for such an amazing year.
The votes have been combed through, analyzed and tallied. Let me just say this: umm … wow. There were a jaw dropping 555 votes! That basically killed last year’s number (229). This year, a client with multiple sessions got an extra 3 votes for every extra session. This caused the 3rd and 4th winners to TIE! Competition was stiff so congratulations to all 4 big prize winners and to the 3 random drawing winners of the 8×10′s!
Without further ado the Thank You 2011 contest winner is …
THE ADORABLE, GIGGLE INDUCING BABY “SANTA” B! Congratulation parents of Baby Boy B, you’ve won a full session with Crabapple Photography.
Second Place winner and winner of 1/2 hour mini session with Crabapple Photography: gorgeous Baby Girl D!
The third and fourth place winners tied! Each winner can make their choice of which prize they’d like: a 4×6 photo book full of 20 of their favorite images from their session(s) or a fantastic storyboard.
The beautiful Baby Girl F
COWBOY UP! The adorable Baby A and Dad A
Three winners of the 8×10 prints using random.org based on comment number.
1. Jennifer, “Amazing pictures! Love the red hair and great smile – my vote is for #42!”
2. Julie, “#40:)”
3. The original winner was a comment for photo #17. Rules are rules however and if you’re a top 4 winner you can’t win a random prize. Second spin of the wheel (there’s no wheel involved)!
Erin Lichtenstein, “I love #50”
Thank you commenters and thank you 2011!
