okay so, first of all. i'm so blown away at the awesome entries that were submitted to the contest. thanks so much to all of you who took the time to go through the sites and choose an image for me. it's been really fun going through the entries and reading your feedback!

because the response was so great and you all are so fabulous, i've decided i'm going to give away TWO sessions. and i'm not stopping there either, every single one of you who entered is going to receive something special! i'll be sending out emails to everybody who entered over the next week to let you know all the details, but in the mean time, the winners of a pink sugar lifestyle session are…

michelle b and veronica b who chose the following images as their favourites.

and just for fun — these next two images were the two that were chosen most often.

eta: i drew three more names for a second prize and the winners are sally p, kat g and jenny d. you three get half off your session fee ($250 value) when you book a session with pink sugar! (details to come by email)


thanks so much to everyone for joining in on the fun, and i am looking forward to getting a bunch of you in front of my camera in the next few months 🙂 happy friday the thirteenth! xox, andrea

just popping in with a quick note regarding the contest.

firstly, thanks to everyone who has entered so far! it’s so great to hear what specific images are making you think and feel 🙂

that out of the way… i’ve had a few emails from people telling me they have entered; however, i am not seeing their entries on the blog. please double check that your comment appears after you enter it (there is a teeny tiny pink arrow at the bottom of the screen to get to the next page of comments). feel free to email me to double check that i have received your entry if you are unsure.

and while you’re waiting for a ‘real’ blog post (lots of awesomeness coming very soon — i pinky swear!), here’s a quickie from last night 🙂

off to the spray park with lila and her pals for some fun in the sun! happy wednesday 🙂 xox, andrea

i have a confession to make.

sometimes, i procrastinate.

the important things always get done on time, but once in a while, something on the to do list gets pushed to the end of the list again and again and again… today, for the first time since january of 2008 (ridiculous, i know), i've updated the images on my website!

and to celebrate — i'm giving away a free session! YAY!


entering the contest is easy:

– head over to the newly renovated wedding and portrait sites, check out the galleries, and choose a favourite image. then come back here and leave a comment telling me why you love it! any reason is fine by me, i'm just interested to see what other people think 🙂 (and if you live in a land far far away and want to take part in the fun without entering the contest, just mention that in your comment and you won't be entered into the draw.)

– for an additional contest entry, join the fun on facebook by "liking" the pink sugar page. (make sure you mention this in your comment so i know to enter your name twice!)

– and lastly, for three more entries, just send me an email and finalize a session booking before the contest ends!


fine print

and just because i'm in a sharing kind of mood (did you notice all of the words up there?? ha!), here are some fun images of lila and her pal tess from an afternoon at pigeon lake earlier this month 🙂

it’s that time of year again! it’s my birthday. it’s pink sugar’s birthday. and for the second year in a row, there’s a ginormous two day sale for my lovely clients and clients-to-be. yippeeee!

because i’m turning twenty six today. because pink sugar is turning three today. because spring makes me happy and i want to spread some of that happiness around. because i love my clients. because i can.

all digital portrait collections are twenty five (yes you read that right… twenty five!) percent off today and tomorrow! that’s a savings of anywhere between two hundred-ish and nine hundred-ish dollars!

any of my portrait clients who have a session booked in 2010. any of my wedding clients for 2010 and 2011 who’d like to get hooked up with some goodies from their engagement sessions. any clients-to-be who finalize their 2010 session booking with me in the next little bit here. and last but not least, any past clients who’d like to get their hands on their digital files.

easy as pie. send an email to today (may 4th 2010) or tomorrow (may 5th 2010) and mention this sale. i will get back to you with all the pertinent info.

and because what’s a photoblog without photos, here is a new fave of the little miss from our [awesome] trip to california last week! make sure to look really closely or you might not spot her — she’s getting pretty good at hiding these days.
