Photography by Beth Session Giveaway!

Disclosure: I received no compensation for this post. All opinions are 100% honest and my own. 

Connor will be 2 in 8 days and I honestly can't believe it! I'm fairly certain that I'm in denial because I am no where near ready for his party. The next couple weeks are going to be extremely busy in our house.

Luckily, I have checked one thing off of my list, his 2 year pictures. This past weekend, we spent over an hour with my favorite local photographer, Beth from Photography by Beth, chasing Connor around Unity Village. If you've had a 2 year old, you know that is almost impossible to get them to sit still and Connor was in rare form that morning. He would stop for 2 seconds and run the moment she tried to snap a photo. He collected every rock and stick he could find and refused to drop them. He screamed the moment we tried to pick him up for a family shot. Luckily, Beth has the patience of a saint and chased him, played with him, and even drove to a different area of Unity Village to try to get the best shots. In the end, I think she managed to get a shot of us all looking at the fountains together and I know she got a few good ones of both of the kids. I am not so patiently waiting to see the final results! She's gotten amazing pictures of both of the kids in the past. Here are some of my favorites:

She took Grace's 9 month pictures in 2011 and got some adorable ones for our Christmas cards despite Grace's extremely grumpy mood.

In January, we got lucky and were able to take Grace's 3 year photos outside.

Connor was more cooperative at Grace's session than he was at his own.

I love looking back at these pictures and I know that we will be using Beth again in the future. She offers extremely reasonable rates for her sessions and she is scheduling Trick or Treat mini sessions for this Saturday, October 25th starting at 10:30 AM. For $50, you get 30 minutes of family, kids, and/or costume portraits. You will get a CD with up to 30 images and the release. There are only a few spots available, so message her now for more info. Also, check her Facebook page soon for dates for the Give Thanks and Happy Holiday mini sessions! I told Mike I was done with photos for the year but I might just have to book a mini session spot for pictures of the kids in their Christmas outfits.

Beth is offering one of my readers a free session! The winner will get a full session which includes the CD with edited images and a print release (I love that I can print my photos anywhere I want!)
