UPDATE: This contest is over. Congratulations to the winner, Pauletta Rouse! Everyone else can purchase the Pampered & Posed holiday portrait set here, with the Aveda lotion set through Cyber Monday.
Does your holiday gift-buying list have a special woman who would love some TLC—or could you use some yourself? Do you wish your mom, wife, daughter, sister or best friend could finally see herself as the beautiful woman she is to you?
If so, my Pampered & Posed holiday portrait set for $159 might be just the gift you’re looking for—AND if you enter my GIVEAWAY* this week, you could win it on Black Friday before the sale even starts!
The Pampered & Posed portrait set starts with a beautifully printed gift voucher.
This voucher is good for a 2-hour photo shoot** with me in my natural-light studio in Wichita, preceded by a double makeover—professional makeup and hair styling for TWO women—at the fabulous Pure Salon and Spa in Old Town.
Tell her she can bring her mom, daughter, sister or friend (maybe you?), and she can even have the rest of her family join her at the end of the shoot for some portraits she’s sure to cherish forever!
The gift voucher also gives her $50 print credit, enough for her to choose two favorite images to enjoy as both a desk print and a low-resolution file for sharing digitally.
Want to give her even more? Pre-purchase $100 or $200 of additional print credit for her at 10% off, so she can have even more of her images to display and share!
And that’s not all! (Sorry, always wanted to say that…) Purchase this gift set during Thanksgiving weekend, and Pure Salon and Spa will also include their beautifully packaged Aveda Relief-to-Go lotions for both hands and feet.
In addition to the Pampered & Posed portrait set, the winner of the Black Friday giveaway will also receive my $250 accordion album—a gorgeous 4×6 book featuring 10 of her images, perfect for either upright display or a private gift for a husband.
So, how can you enter the giveaway to win this amazing gift? It’s pretty simple.
To enter, just do TWO things:
- First, leave a comment on this blog post, telling me one thing you LOVE about the woman who’ll receive this set if you win it—even if that woman is you! You don’t have to say who she is, if you want to be sure she’ll be surprised to get it.
- Second, copy and paste the following into your Facebook*** status bar or Twitter feed (you can change up the wording if you want!): Win a makeover and photo shoot for a woman in your life! http://bit.ly/XilxVX
Entries must be submitted by 8 a.m. CST Friday, Nov. 23. I’ll randomly draw the winner’s name at that time, and the winner will be announced and notified that morning.
Everyone else will then have the opportunity to buy the Pampered & Posed portrait set (photo shoot, double makeover and $50 print credit) for $159 (total value nearly $250), complete with the Aveda lotion set if purchased by the end of Monday, Nov. 26. Premium sets with $100 and $200 in additional print credit will also be available for $249 and $339 respectively.
