Party Like a Blogstar!

First, I haven't been to a party in ... well in years so I'm thrilled to be partying here with everyone from the 5 Minutes for Mom's Ultimate Blog Party =) Read more about that here:
Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Second, I was kind of afraid to join in this Blog know, maybe nobody will come to my blog, maybe nobody will like my blog, maybe I'm not a good writer and I really shouldn't be blogging after-all, those kinds of thoughts often plague me when it comes to my blog. (did I really just say 'blog' 5x in that sentence =) Then I decided to Just Do It, so here I am....Partying like a the Blogstar that I certainly am not, haha!!


So I found the UBP a little late to donate a giveaway by the 9th so I'll have my own giveaway right here! I'll be giving a beautiful 8x10 image of one of my Hawaii Fine Art Prints. Here is a sample but you will be able to choose from a large collection:

If you browse around here in my blog you'll notice it's more of a photo blog; after-all that is what I do! I am a photographer specializing in tender artistic images of newborns and babies. But firstly I am a wife, mother, and homemaker and I cherish all of these jobs. I tend to keep this blog more about sample images from my sessions...but hopefully as I get better at writing I'll include more personal day to day happenings too!

Anyways, so that is me in a nutshell. If you stumbled here from the party, leave me a comment to be entered into my HAWAIIAN ART GIVEAWAY! And subscribe if you find my work of interest to you =) I'll be sure to go support your page too! For now, it's off to church; I'll return later today to do some blog-hopping...see you then!!!

Wow, so many wonderful Giveaways...these are my favorite:
US95, USC 43, USC 16

  14. Hi Rita,

    Thanks for stopping by Windmills and Tulips. I appreciate the love. xox

    Your pictures are amazing. I have always wanted to dabble in photography. Did you go to school for it?

    I would love the opportunity to win your art. The picture has a special significance for me.

    God bless. Following back. xox

  15. Hi glad you stopped by. Love to look at photography blogs. I also thought when I first started blogging who would visit me?.. Now I have grown in my writing and blogs. Having so much fun visiting and meeting new friends. You will also. Have fun at the party. Love your Hawaiian Print

  16. Jasmine, thanks for stopping in, you'll definitely be included in my Giveaway. I also have Giveaways on my FB:

    No, I did not go to school for photography. I've been teaching myself for 20 years now through trial & error, online tutorials and plenty of books. Just start shooting, that's the best way to learn =)

  32. OK gals, since this is my 1st Giveaway....I'm not sure how to go about generating/choosing a winner. Any advice? I'd like to make it just a random number, and evident I'm not choosing the bloggers that mail me free stuff, lol, kidding nobody has mailed me free stuff...but you can if you want =) So give me another day to figure this part out!!!!! Thanks for your patience =)

  33. OKKKKKK I finally found and have a winner...well actually 2 winners. I wasn't sure if I leave my comments in the overall number of comments or not, obviously I wouldn't win the GA but anyways so I'm going with 2 winners. The 21st if I leave my comments in & the 21st if I'd take my comments out =) HSuper Parents of AND Janel of Yaay, I'll send you a personal message as well with the details!!
