Free Session Contest

I love the holidays.  It just is a great time to snuggle in and enjoy all the season has to offer.  Historic St.Charles MO is always a favorite spot of mine, but on the weekends before Christmas it really brings out the holiday spirit.  The smell of Kettle corn, the sounds of carolers, carriage rides, ice skating, and chestnut roasting to name a few of the activities that bring this beautiful area to life this time of year.  I can’t think of anything more romantic than mittens and scarves, hot chocolate and kisses – arm in arm on a weekend afternoon.  I would SO love to have photos of Roger and I like this.  Just very candid, not posed, wrapped up in each other.  Which got me to thinking – the next best thing would be to do a session like this for someone else!  So in the spirit of giving, we are running a contest for 1 lucky couple or family.


A free session including 25 – Christmas Cards (pose of our choice) available to you by Monday so you can send them in time for Christmas, and a disc with all the photos and copyright release.

Date – Saturday December 19th

Time – TBD

Where – Historic Downtown St.Charles MO

Who – The person who best describes in 25 words or less what they love most about the holiday season.  (PS – I know you love your family – be original and unique)

Post your answer under the comments.  The deadline is Sat the 12th and the winner will be announced on Sunday evening.  To make it fair – couples who have already had an engagement session with us are not eligible.

Our Secret Santa will decide the winning answer.

We look forward to hearing about what YOU love about the holidays!

Amanda - Holiday spirits in the young and elderly. Giving of time and love. Cuddling with hot cocoa, fires, and loved ones. Overall bringing families closer together.

Michelle - Christmas reminds us that we are thankful for our families even if they have Jerry Springer tendencies. Spending time with who we love the most!

Linda - Showing others what the holidays are all about: Spreading joy, donating to great causes to help others and families in need, laughing, remember good times!

Emily - Christmas reminds me of how much we take people and things for granted. My father passed away in 1999, and Christmas is the time of year I think about him the most. I get extremely depressed during Christmas at times, but it helps me appreciate the people I still have around me even more. Especially my wonderful husband! Love and miss you dad!

Danielle Mazander - Cheesy stocking stuffers (mini-kleenex packs, chocolate coins)
Gaudy tinsel on trees

Laine - Sitting on the couch infront of a fire with the tree lights on and my kids snuggling under the blankets watching old chritmas movies

Jennifer Hilling - The holiday season is about giving, loving and spirituality. It’s about spending the time of your life with the people you love. Sharing memories and laughter and maybe a glass a
wine or two.

Michele S. - The pure bliss of enveloping my children in a legacy of tradition and spirit of selfless giving that will guide them on their life’s journey.

Renee - Holidays to me are watching my 2 year old enjoy making all of those annoying Christmas decorations play music (all at once I must add!)

Dawn Devall - That my kids truly know in their hearts why we celebrate it. That’s the best gift ever given and ever received. Hands down!

Emily Ann Bleier - Hope you, Roger & Curt have a Merry Christmas!!

Megan - This year at Christmas everyone needs to be reminded what the holidays are really about….it has been a tough year for many with the economy, so just embrace the love and holiday spirit that surrounds us.

KLott - National Lampoons Christmas vacation, ugly holiday sweaters, miniature gift bows made into earrings, getting to start our own traditons as a new(ish) family, egg nog!

Sara Beer - Stringing popcorn with my mom all night and the feeling of accomplishment six-year-old me got from finally putting it on the tree. Gaudy Christmas ornaments that I made in grade school that my mom was so proud to display. Cuddling with my husband in our new apartment, looking at our first Christmas tree together. Watching my nieces/nephew open their gifts – wrapping paper and bows flying – and that “This is JUST what I wanted!” expression on their face. Driving around with family all night just to look at Christmas lights. And a full 24 hours of A Christmas Story. I could go on…but these are a few of my favorite things about Christmas 🙂

Sara Beer - Oops – I totally didn’t read the 25 words or less thing!!! 🙂 sorry!

Brea - In the husle/busle taking time to reflect: Past-cheerished life-long memories…Present-Loved ones I have to share them with…Future-New Hopes,Dreams…New Year

Rainy - Dr. Suess say’s it best in the Grinch…”What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.”
