300 Fan Giveaway!

On January 24th, 2011 I created this blog for my photography class... That's when it all really began. Sometime in May, 2011 I realized that I wanted to be a photographer. Since then, I've been doing all I can to  grow. For Christmas I got PhotoShop, and at the beginning of January this year Kandis from Wish Photography gave me my Camera. Then, on January 23rd, I finally opened up and made a Facebook page for my photography, and on February 20th I reached 200 fans! I started putting together a giveaway to celebrate reaching 200 fans, and just 4 (count them, FOUR!) days later I had already made it to 300! I still can't believe it, I'm just so so so SO honored and blessed. I really, honestly have no idea how I've been able to be so blessed.... 
In just one short year, I've grown so much!
Here's something to show you guys just how much...
I took this last February...
And I took this just last week...

I couldn't have made it so far without the help and support of so many amazing people, that I now have the honor to call friends--even family. I am honestly in shock at how fast my fan number has gone up on Facebook, and I'm so grateful for each and every one of you! I thank my Heavenly Father every day for you guys! Photography has helped get me through some really tough times (it's still helping, actually). 
I truly cannot tell you all how much this all means to me, and I want to show you my appreciation. There's no way I could ever really do that, so I'm going to host this giveaway to at least express a tiny portion of my gratitude!

NOW for the part you've all been waiting for, the actual giveaway! These vendors have been kind enough to offer their service, products, time, and energy in this giveaway, and I'm so happy to have all of them here!!
