Bird & Bear, a family photography giveaway

(UPDATED: I've turned on anonymous comments to make it easier for those without a blogger profile to enter, but I've also had to turn on word verification temporarily as the spam situation is ridiculous. I'll turn it off again as soon as the give away is over!) 

As a thank you for a wonderful summer of getting Bird and Bear {London Family Photography} off the ground and as a thank you for your help doing it, I'm offering a family photo session completely free! 

Read to the bottom of the post to find out more and please feel free to enter either for yourself or to win the session as a gift for a friend.

So it is that we have reached August and the end of the introductory pricing I was offering at Bird & Bear. I have photographed more families than I thought was possible at the beginning of the summer and I have loved every minute of it (except those 64 minutes sitting at a bus stop in Kent, those sucked). I have met some wonderful people, some adorable kids and a couple of slightly mental Chihuahuas. I have photographed people in their homes, on holiday in London and at various beautiful parks scattered around the city. I have photographed old friends, new friends and a handful of our past wedding couples.

I have, as I said I would do when it got to August, put my prices up slightly and started offering a range of albums, prints and photography bundles. I'm a little anxious, as I think all creative types are when they increase their pricing, but I'm really hoping that over the next couple of years I can start to do this almost full-time and so I think it's time to start treating it as a real business. Wish me luck! 

In celebration of the start (officially) of a new venture and as a thank you for your support as I've been figuring it out, I've decided to do a giveaway!

I'm offering one family a free photo session in London. It can be in your home or we can arrange to meet in a park somewhere and we will do a two hour shoot. Afterwards you will get between 50 and 100 images as high resolution files. 

To enter please leave a comment here or 'like' the Bird and Bear facebook page. The giveaway will be open for the next two weeks and I will draw a winner at random when I get back from holiday on September 5th.
