I am happy to announce I am teaming up with some fantastic people to bring you a once in a lifetime portrait session. Well, maybe not once in a lifetime, but you get the idea…its such a HUGE giveaway! We are in Texas and its hotter than you know what here, so in order to beat the heat, we have started shooting underwater portraits. That’s not really why, but it is quite refreshing when its 112 degrees out.

      Now I have decided to offer a GIANT, HUGE giveaway!! An underwater portrait session valued at over $1500. All you need to do is ::

      1) go to my facebook page and tell me what YOU have been doing to ‘BEAT THE HEAT’

      2) have your friends and family comment on the comment YOU posted.

      That’s it….easy as pie and refreshing as a dip in the water. THREE finalists will be selected based on the number of comments they have on their original posted comment and then we will choose the best “beating the heat” comment.

      : Details about the session :
      When – 08.21.11 (set aside at least 3 hours of your day. the underwater portion will be approximately 1 hour. up to 2 people for the session)
      Where – just north of Dallas, Texas (if you are out of state, travel is up to you)
      Who – Amy Karp, Gia & Co, and Something-you

      Contest ends on 08.11.11 – we will announce the winner on 8.12.11 on facebook!

      Each comment must come from a unique commenter and only comments count.

      What you get :: A makeup artist and personal styling assistance for the entire shoot, 2 minute enhanced trailer of video footage during the shoot, 2 photographers shooting high resolution digital images, AND you are able to select 5 electronic files after your online gallery is posted (basic edits, printable up to 8×10)!

      This session can be for a bride and groom, husband and wife, an expecting mom, a ballerina, a mother and child, or just for fun. Wow – seriously an awesome giveaway…..and GO!

      Facebook page, then comment how you are “beating the heat”, send your friends to comment on your comment and repeat!

      Thanks. I’ve heard they are really good housings.

      Hi Amy… Can I ask what housing, etc. you use for your underwater work? I’m rather frightened about taking my 5DMii underwater… YIKES!

      I use an Ikelite housing – it is a scary thing to do at first and I recommend doing it with an experienced person first to show you how.
