    Congrats to the winners! And thanks for posting this teaser of my sweet babies!

  • AngieSeptember 23, 2011 - 1:36 pm

    I’m SO excited I can hardly stand it! I was at a stoplight on the way to homeschool co-op when I saw that I won. I was crying and yelling and being a big, excited, emotional goofball! Thanks so much! Cannot wait!

Oh…how I love playing with the sun. Whenever I have a shoot I try to find fun places to catch the sunlight coming through. To be inspired by other touch of sun photos, click below.

    I personally don’t deserve a free session. But I think my children’s grandparents do! My boys are 5th generation living and nearly all of their many grandparents live out of state. My baby is 9mos old and we havent had photos done in several months, he is growing so fast and it would mean the world to their grandparents to see photos of them again, specially beautiful ones they can proudly show off to friends!

  • MagenSeptember 16, 2011 - 8:22 am

    Posted as my status that I entered!

  • Amy KarpanSeptember 16, 2011 - 12:45 pm

    To work with the best photographer in the whole wide world again of course. There are probably many more people who deserve it more then me…..but I don’t know if they want it as much as me:-)!
    We could shoot me and food this time!!

  • AngieSeptember 16, 2011 - 2:14 pm

    I would love, love, love to have a family session that includes our newly adopted little guy!!! We only have two snapshots of us as a family of seven and neither of them are very good. It would be an enormous blessing to win a session. A dream come true!

  • Kim FinesilverSeptember 16, 2011 - 7:05 pm

    I want a session with my one year old from the person who did an amazing job taking her pics as a new born!!! Lilly has changed so much and it would be great to see pistures of her by the same person who took them in the beginging. And we always love a reason to come to ABQ!

    I have been sick and in and out of the hospital since my daughter was 4 months old. I have 1 more surgery to make it through at the end of the month. I would love to have a family session after that so we can celebrate the end of a very hard road. I want my daughter to have pictures of her family with a healthy mommy. She is too young to really know whats going on but when she looks back as she gets older I want her to have wonderful pictures so she knows how happy she has made us.

  • Chyanne FordSeptember 17, 2011 - 9:57 am

    There no fun reason that I deserve a session, but I would love one! I have had the privilege of being in front of your camera and I know you can make my husband SMILE for a picture! I love the moments you’ve captured for our family! We, (by “We” I mean me), want to get Christmas card pictures done in the next couple months and I’d love it if we got to work with you again. Not to mention, we love all the colors of your neighborhood in the fall. The Sandias are beautiful!

    p.s. I just posted on facebook too. 🙂

  • Paige ButlerSeptember 17, 2011 - 8:49 pm

    I can’t really say that we deserve a session but we would LOVE the chance at having another one with you! Aiden is such a joy for us and we love any excuse to get to show him off!

  • CherylSeptember 18, 2011 - 3:25 pm

    Oh I would love a free session for my beautiful babies! I look back on my childhood photos and see an awkward little girl with messy hair, and crooked smile/dress/sister in almost every photo in front of a fake sky or mossy backdrop. Don’t get me wrong, I love these pictures because they make me laugh. When my kids look back at their childhood photos I want them to see their beautiful smiles, eyes, and spirit that I have seen in every Kasey Mikelle photo of them to date. I dread the day I have to take their photos with anyone else. So if we don’t win a free session, I will still happily buy one!

  • JamiSeptember 19, 2011 - 1:36 am

    Why? … because I’m willing to drag my family 3,761 miles on a plane, and then another 641 miles by car, to get to Albuquerque for a photo session. We love you that much Kasey!, and like Cheryl dread the day we have to have our photos taken by anyone else.

  • JenniferSeptember 20, 2011 - 2:14 pm

    I can’t give any good reason why we deserve one, but does it count if I just want one?! We just had our pictures done with you, and call me crazy, but I’m already planning the next time! I love all the pictures you’ve taken of our family, and they bring back great memories every time I look at them. Plus, when you take our pictures it feels like we’re just hanging out with a friend, not having a photo session. Good times! (posted on FB, too)

  • JustinSeptember 22, 2011 - 6:56 pm

    Now that we have our son home from Ethiopia, it would mean the world to my wife to have a photo session with the 7 of us.

  • jessica reidSeptember 22, 2011 - 6:59 pm

    I have 2 beautiful children .They are one and four. I havent had pictures done of them since they have been born. i just ant a chance to capture them at this age and being able to look back at the beautiful pictures you can take.

  • jessica reidSeptember 22, 2011 - 7:02 pm

    i put a facebook post 🙂

  • SarahSeptember 22, 2011 - 8:46 pm

    I am deserving of a free session because I am an amazing mother who commits my whole life to my children. I stay at home which is really no sacrifice at all, however, we all know that staying home means that you’re not bringing in the dough! 😉 I am so blessed to be able to stay home, and yet, I rarely have the opportunity to splurge on something I really want for my family and myself… and this is something I REALLY want! Pictures of my sweet little ones that will last us a life time, that captures their perfection and magical beings at this stage in their lives, that captures our family as a whole, as we are in this moment. Life is forever changing and I would love to slow it down just for a moment to capture the pure magic in my life right now by a photographer who really sees the essence of her subjects and somehow magically brings that forward through her lens. I can’t say I am the most deserving but I can say that nothing in the world would bring me more joy than to hold forever beautiful photos of my perfect family. Thank you for considering. <3

    Posted you on my facebook status as well. 🙂

    My kids are going to be Freddy Fruger (12 years old) and the Red Power Ranger Ninja (3 year old) and Batrina ( 15 months old). I hope I win… I love your pictures….

  • AngieSeptember 14, 2011 - 8:37 am

    We have a rule that Halloween costumes have to be related to something we’re studying in our homeschool. No one has decided yet this year, but so far there’s talk of colonial settlers, native Americans, cells, and skeletons. I would also approve traditional Ethiopian outfits, in honor of Eyob!

  • Jessica MorseSeptember 14, 2011 - 4:05 pm

    We are talking of dressing Mason as Curious George and Jesse would be the man in the yellow hat. I would just be their cute sidekick. = ) We were also talking of dressing Mason as a dragon and I would be witch. I’m so excited for Mason’s first Halloween!

  • Paige ButlerSeptember 14, 2011 - 4:10 pm

    Since Aiden started walking at 8 1/2 months we have decided to dress him up as the little terror he is .. a lil monster! 🙂

  • AmySeptember 14, 2011 - 5:37 pm

    IX will be Optimus Prime & II will be a ladybug!

  • VeronicaSeptember 14, 2011 - 7:33 pm

    My 15 month old is going to be dressed as an owl! His room is full of them. Jungle themes were played out so I used a wooded forest theme in his nursery and fell even more in love with owls!

    Posting on FB now.

  • Danielle BenscoterSeptember 14, 2011 - 8:23 pm

    Sophia is going to be a lady bug to match her room theme 🙂

  • Amy KarpanSeptember 14, 2011 - 8:24 pm

    Totally don’t know if I can enter again and don’t have kids but LOVE Halloween and think you will get a kick out of this one….I’m going to be Mrs. Roper from Three’s Company this year….I have a huge moomoo and some fabulous jewelery. One of the best ones was when I was a roadkill play boy bunny- spandex jumpsuit with bunny ears and a tire stripe up one side with a little blood on the tail and ear and a gruesome face on one side. One year I was also a 50’s socialite one year…that was great and then there was the year I was a cannibal with bone skirt and lots of dirt….I love Halloween!!!!

  • Molly AlfordSeptember 14, 2011 - 8:51 pm

    I’m dressing my little baby girl up as a chile pepper! She is still pretty small but she is fiery!

  • AmberSeptember 22, 2011 - 6:52 pm

    dont know if I can say I am deserving more than anyone else to get a free photo shoot. However I would like to say I deserve a moment of fun with a photo shoot. I am single mother in the active duty Air Force. I am putting myself thru school to finish up my bachelors degree and am always working with my daughter’s school, I help coach her soccer team/tball teams. I love to work with all children. I would love to just have some fun photos with my daughter so that she has something to always reflect on the fun moments we had. My father lives in CA and its been 2 years since I have seen him. he has been in and out the hospital and I think it would be an amazing gift to give him a photobook of his two girls living life the way he always remembers.
    ~Thank you~

Today is my baby’s birthday. He is four…FOUR! To celebrate his birthday (and have a little fun) I’ll be doing 4 days of giveaways!! Today I’ll be giving away 4 $50 gift certificates! I’m making this super simple too… Simply write in the comments… 4 things you love to do/traditions you have during the holiday…

    I LOVE spending time with family during the holidays- I love that Raegan & Reese get to have all of her grandparents and great-grandparents to share it with. I love all of the holiday baking. Right now I’m obsessed with anything pumpkin 🙂 I love picking pumpkins with Raegan and painting/decorating them. And I love my mom’s baked ham- nothing else will do for Thanksgiving or Christmas! Most of all, I love that our parents taught us what the Christmas season is really all about.

  • Amy KarpanSeptember 12, 2011 - 4:01 pm

    I cook! It is my number one most important tradition. My top 4 favorite traditions for the holidays are 1) Turkey, green bean casserole and mashed potatoes for Thanksgiving 2) Ham with cherry sauce for Christmas 3) Leftover Ham sandwiches and mashed potatoes for New Years with cheap champagne, dark chocolate and great cheese 4) My number one favorite tradition for the holidays is not having to do the dishes as there are more people around to do them for me!!!!
    I also will link to FB of course!

  • Jessica MorseSeptember 12, 2011 - 4:45 pm

    Fall and Christmas are such a magical time for me, especially this year, as it will all be a first for Mason. My four favorite things are 1. Walking with my family in the cool air and talking about our day 2. Eating!!! I love all the parties and food. 3. Reading Christmas stories and doing my annual read of Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice” 4. Spending time with family and experiencing life at its richest.

  • AmySeptember 12, 2011 - 5:26 pm

    4 Things I love to do around the holidays:
    1. Go to Balloon Fiesta with the family
    2. Make tamales & teach new people how to make them
    3. Go to my parents for Christmas Eve in Santa Fe to not only enjoy the awesome food but the faralitos
    4. Kiss my husband on New Year’s!!

  • ChristineSeptember 12, 2011 - 5:40 pm

    1) I love the whole Christmas gift process–picking or making the perfect gift, finding beautiful ribbons, and writing personal cards.
    2) Making leftover turkey sandwiches at Thanksgiving with my brothers.
    3) Dancing in the New Year.
    4) Crunching Autumn leaves!

  • KelliSeptember 12, 2011 - 8:54 pm

    This is absolutely my favorite time of year! Pumpkins, changing colors, cooler weather, did I mention pumpkin everything…what is not to love!
    1. I love gathering my little family and riding our bikes to the balloon fiesta. Even if we don’t go into the park, it is so much fun to ride around and see how beautiful they are!
    2. I love to put up my fall decorations! I can hardly wait to unpack them and transform the house. My son is already super excited about getting the pumpkins out!
    3. I love getting together for the holidays with all of my extended family. It is a sweet time to see my mom, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and their children.
    4. I love making real homemade hot chocolate, bundling up, and driving around to look at Christmas lights.

  • Paige ButlerSeptember 13, 2011 - 9:37 am

    It is really hard to narrow down my favorites to just 4 but I will try my best!

    1. I absolutely love handing out candy to excited and sometimes shy trick-or-treaters. This year will be even more thrilling when I get to take my own little trick-or-treater out and about!
    2. As a Nebraska native, football, football and football!!! Everyone gets dressed in their Nebraska gear and cheers on our team and did I mention the yummy tailgate foods!
    3. Who doesn’t love the excitement of the chill in the air, changing of the leaves and all the beauty that fall brings? Thanksgiving has always been a time of family and this year my little guy turns 1 on Thanksgiving! Family will be in town to celebrate all that we are thankful for, a birthday party and of course the Nebraska/Iowa game! 🙂
    4. Christmas is such a magical time of year and it starts the day after Thanksgiving when all the decorations go up, Christmas music is on all month, Cinnamon is a constant smell and the search for the perfect gift is on!
