Special Announcement!!!
You can have Britain Earl Photography shoot your wedding FOR FREE!!!!! That’s right, I am doing a wedding photography giveaway!

Why you ask?
Because one of the first photography blogs I ever saw did this years ago, and though I can’t remember the photographer, the concept has stuck with me all this time. This photographer offered wedding photography to one deserving bride, and her story made me cry. Now that I have a profitable business, I want to share the wealth!
What can I win?
One lucky couple will receive a wedding photography package to include:

* 8 hours of wedding day coverage
* engagement session

* online proof gallery

* DVD of high Resolution images

Second and Third place winners will receive half off a photography package!

How do I enter?

*including your name
*phone number
*email address
 *wedding date
*wedding location
* a photo of you and your fiancé
*your love story in 500 words or less.
I want to hear what sets you (or a friend your nominating) apart from the rest. Maybe you have a unique "how we met story", how was your engagement special, maybe you're planning the most over-the-top wedding of 2011/2012?  Maybe you’ve overcome personal tragedy, maybe you’ve just sunk your heart and soul into your education, ……the possibilities are endless.
What are the rules?
* One submission per couple

* Must provide express written approval to share your story and or photo on my blog/facebook/website, ie: "I agree to allow Britain Earl Photography publish my photo and/or story on their blog/facebook page/website."

* Your wedding can be anywhere in the world, but I am in AZ.  Locations outside the Phoenix metro area  are free to enter, but the winner must pay for travel costs incurred, as they will not be included in the prize package

* You can be a current client to enter, your deposit will become a credit toward purchasing products, (albums, prints, gallery wraps, etc.).  You cannot be a relative or close friend of Britain Earl

What's the deadline?
Email entries to me at britain@britainearl.com. Entries must be submitted on or before midnight, August 15, 2011.   The winner will be announced on or before, Friday, August 19, 2011. 

Madeline is 4! - Gilbert Children's Photographer

Thursday, July 7, 2011

this is one of my 4 favorite subjects, my 2nd daughter, Madeline Joy!
Madeline is at the perfect age to capture (to me between 3 and 5), because she's not a baby anymore, but she hasn't become self conscious or started "posing."  she has always been wonderful to photograph, but being a little older has really helped too. 
all Maddie wanted for her birthday this year was a "blue church dress".  this vintage smocked lovely arrived shortly after her birthday and we were off to do a session within minutes!  she was so excited!
this little munchkin styled her own shoot.  she chose wardrobe and hair, and all the props.  this "M" is a decoration in her room.
and this is "Bud-bud", beautiful butterfly that also resides in Madeline's room. 
how beautiful is this rose!  i just had to share.
i love this location because you get so many options, the rose garden, the parisian cafe\...
and since i believe in striking while the iron's hot, i took Maddie for her session when she asked, not when i had the time to remove this lovely chipping pink & purple manicure.  the perfectionist in me thinks, "oh no, her nails."  but really looking at this image i think, "wow, beautiful i remember painting those tiny nails."

i have been dying to get this shot for a while now.  this little wooded area reminds me of Monet's garden in Giverny. 





we ended our day by the grape vines.  Maddie had fun "drawing" in the gravel.

so glad i had the chance to spend the day with my little/big 4 year old.  i can't believe how the time has flown!  i love you Madeline Joy!!!
