The Triumph of 500

I want to start by thanking each and every one of my clients, followers, friends and family who have helped me along the way. I know that 500 Facebook “likes” seems trivial, and very silly, but to me it is a huge accomplishment. I am able to show others my passion, and my organic reach on Facebook has grown!

Last Wednesday evening, I noticed that I was at 496 likes on my Facebook page. I figured it was time to give back to all of my supportersthrough a giveaway, so I simply asked for the 500 likesto jump start the process. I figured I would get maybe 10 likes at most, but I was astonished at what happened next. All of my supporters invited their friends, and shared my status, and some wanted me to reach 550!

I was amazed that so many people were willing to help me, and all I had to do was ask. Ultimately I reached 540 likes! So without any more hesitation, here are the awesome GIVEAWAYS!!!

Grand Prize – FREE photo session of YOUR choosing (family, kids, engagement, couple, glamour, or senior) for up to 6 people. The session will take place in a mutually agreed upon location, with up to 2 outfit changes, for an hour long. You will receive 25-30 images in an online gallery that is available for up to a year!

2nd Place – Will receive 50% off of a regular priced session of YOUR choosing! See above for session details… OR the option of a FREE 16x20 gallery canvas from a previous session

3rd place – Will Receive 25% off of a regular priced session of YOUR choosing! See above for session details…OR the option of a FREE 11x14 gallery canvas from a previous session   

EVERYONE WINS – for anyone who submits…. Receive 10% off of a regular priced session of any kind and a FREE 11x14 print of their favorite photo

  • Tell me WHY you deserve to win the free photo shoot. You can use your imagination, or tell me of a hardship you have faced, or simply you want to have fun.
  • Tell me WHY you loved your previous session. You can do this in the form of a narrative or by writing a review for my website.
  • NOMINATE someone who would deserve this photo shoot. This could be a complete and total surprise to someone you love to show that you are thinking of them, and that they deserve to win this shoot. Write a little something on why they should win.

All winners will be randomly selected, and I will post a video as I draw the names. Submissions are due to me by Thursday, July 16, 2015 at 11:59:59 p.m. EST and a winner will be selected on Friday, July 17, 2015!

The New Look | Amber Nicole Photography

So for those of you who keep up with all of my shenanigans, you may have noticed a few new things… a new look to my website, a new look to my branding, and a new look to my photos. I have been so busy behind the scenes trying to develop my business into something more, closer to where I want to be.

I recently hired the AMAZING Kory Woodard and I cannot give her enough praise for what she did for my brand. She helped my creative, yet very scattered mind, focus in on the look I want to portray for my brand. She did all the hard work, and I did all the easy work (AKA pinning fun things on Pinterest).  I can’t even begin to thank her enough, and I recommend her amazing talents and services to ALL of you! So take a look at her website and see the brand board she created for me below!
