archive for 'contest'
this fall marks the
seventh anniversary of MZP.
it’s been the
and I am ever so
for allowing me the honor
in appreciation of you, of your faith in me through the years, I wanted to give something away. something coveted – something wonderful.
a limited edition fall mini session.
the session will take place in Grapevine on October 19th. and don’t worry, if you’ve already signed up for a session this fall, you are still eligible – so enter!
there’s something about summer
that just makes us all
and the sweet smells of
honeysuckle & childhood.
our family has been creating bucket lists for the last several summers, and last year we joined The Happy Family Movement’s Summer Bucket List Challenge. it was a lot of fun to see what other families were doing to create memories, and to check things off our own list that brought so much joy to our day to day. last year, MZP sponsored a week of the challenge, and this year I’m at it again. MZP is giving away a sweet family essentials kit from The Honest Company. to enter head on over to The Happy Family Movement!
if you’ve started a bucket list for your family, I’d love to hear all about it – feel free to share in the comments or link to your family’s list. and if you haven’t created one yet, there’s still plenty of time…and come back to share it!! just remember to print it out – don’t keep it trapped on your computer – and display it somewhere everyone in your house can see it. then have tons of fun crossing things off all summer…prepare for lots of joy, some serious fun, and memories…oh, the memories!
this contest was good…
y’all stepped up.
you donated the cost of a cup of coffee,
your lunch money,
and some of you gave that $50 to get entered
for a pretty rad prize from MZP.
and you know what?
Jen exceeded her goal…
the clinical trial starts soon,
in part due to you amazing people.
thank you, thank you, thank you.
I know I’m late announcing the winner,
and I’m sorry.
It’s been insane around here
to say the least.
But here it is…drumroll please…
(be sure to email me on July 1st to book your session spot…you get first dibs!)
meet jen. and cooper. and cohen.
when I first started my journey into the world of photography, I was almost immediately introduced to this mama’s amazing talent. her giving heart. her clear wantingness to elevate this industry. I was in awe – she’s as amazing as she seems and more.
and now, she needs our help. your help. your friends’ help. your mom, your sister, your old college roommate. she needs them all to help.
nine months ago jen was diagnosed with aggressive ovarian cancer. she had a radical hysterectomy. she endured rounds of chemo…but due to complications from that chemo her numbers are climbing again.
what exactly does that mean? it means that doctors have said she’s got 12 to 18 months. that time, hugs, moments, memories, kisses, smiles…everything with her two sweet boys is now on some crazy time table. BUT, there is this amazing clinical trial with the Mayo Clinic and jen’s in…well, if she can raise the some $63,000 it will take to pay for the trial and the flights back and forth from Oregon.
that money amount sounds HUGE, I know, but really would you put a price tag on extra hugs with your kids? a chance to see them grow into the amazing men you know they’ll be?
so, now that you know about my friend jen, about why she needs each of you, I know you want to know how to help. it’s a couple quick clicks to donate on her blog (where you can also read about her journey). you can give $5, the cost of a Starbucks coffee. or $20, the cost of a lunch out. or…if you have $50 you can get your name in the pot to win something AMAZING from MZP.
Here’s the deal, friends.
The prize: a coveted, happens once-a-year, holiday mini session with all the trimmings (session, ALL the digital files, plus 75 holiday cards) a $1400 value
How to enter: donate $50 to jen’s fund DONATE HERE then send me an email saying you donated (firstname.lastname@example.org). that’s it, you’re entered to win!
Bonus entries: for every additional $50 donated you’ll receive ONE additional entry. but here’s the amazing one…share this post, and let your friends know when they enter to tell me in their email who sent them – if they mention you, you get ANOTHER entry. the more entries the better your chance to nab this prize. awesome, right?
now go help jen.
she deserves every chance to kick cancer’s butt. to have more moments with cooper & cohen. to live.
the fine print: this giveaway is in NO way affiliated with Facebook. session will be booked in early July and winner must select from mini session dates provided (Saturdays in Sept or October). sessions take place in either the Dallas/Fort Worth area or Philadelphia. prize has no cash value and is nonrefundable and nontransferable. winner will be chosen Wednesday, May 29th and announced Thursday, May 30th. please play fair…this is about something SO much BIGGER than a mini session. xx
I’m so excited about this giveaway!
