This is a belated post but I couldn’t let anymore time go by without giving a huge shout out to all of my wonderful clients and friends.
We don’t subscribe to the local newspaper. We did once in the past,but as the paper just piled up higher and higher without us reading it we finally decided to cancel it. So it wasn’t a big surprise that I didn’t know much about a Reader’s Choice contest that the Newpress was doing. In fact, I only learned about it when Sadie’s dance teacher sent out an email reminding us to all be sure to vote for our favorite dance studio.
So on August 1 (my birthday!) I had a friend grab me a newspaper and I voted for my favorite dance studio in town. Then I had a real “aha!” moment. (It was actually more of a “duh” moment.) I realized there were other categories and Favorite Photographer was one of them. Oh fun! So being super modest, I voted for myself and turned the paper in that day since it was the deadline. Then I sort of forgot about it.
Until…I got an email from the Newspress saying I had won! Well, I won second place. But I’m not sure I can tell you how excited I was. Little old ME got second place as Stillwater’s Favorite Photographer next to a storefront photographer that has been here for years and years. And I got my very own framed certificate. And…I made my kid take an iPhone pic of me with my award.
So thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for voting for me. Too all my super duper amazing clients who turned in a ballot because you felt I was worthy of this award. Thank you.
And now, one of our local magazines is hosting the Stillwater Living’s Best of Stillwater 2012. If you have a chance, I’d love it if you could go leave a review for me there under my business name. All you’ll need to do is go here. You’ll have to create an account if you don’t already have one but it just takes a minute to do. Once you do that, you’ll be able to leave a review for me. And if you feel like it le you’re there…place a vote for me too! 😉
