June Star Photography | 8K Giveaway!
If you had told me, 5 years ago, that I would be doing something I love as much as I love my job right now, I wouldn’t have believed you. I never thought I would one day be able to use my creativity to make a living, and I am so thankful that God showed me I was wrong. I didn’t set out on this journey with a pen & pad of paper. I had no plan. This amazing journey of mine has just evolved over time. I am so thankful for all the friends and fans I’ve made along the way, for all the amazing beautiful clients I’ve met, and for the love and support you all have shown me. I was once again blown away last month when my facebook fan page reached 8,000 fans. I decided that very night that I wanted to find a way to thank you all. So I started working on this giveaway the next day 🙂 It has been a month in the making, but I have pulled together 55 of my closest business friends & associates, plus a few new names & faces to offer this amazing giveaway:
Yep, you saw that correctly!
I have been getting a lot of requests for mentoring lately. It’s not something I’m currently offering. But, there are a few lovely gals I’ve mentored in the past who have encouraged me to think about it again. In fact, one of these sweet girls wrote the following review just for this giveaway:
“Having the talent to photograph newborns, young children, and families is amazing but to mentor people and teach them is astounding. Heather is so special and a great mentor for new and slightly seasoned photographers. She takes her time to show you how to pose a newborn, the best angles to photograph an expecting mom, or how to manage an active 12 month old. Every detail down to the placement of newborn fingers is something she taught me to pay attention to. I have never met a photographer as nice and helpful as Heather. She is a super star editor and phenomenal photographer but there is no word worthy enough to describe her as a mentor. If you have an opportunity run, don’t walk, to the chance to be a Heather Solima mentee.”
So there you have it. Prize #1: a 1:1 mentoring session with yours truly 🙂
This session will be based around YOU, what you want to learn, how you want to improve. We’ll spend a full day together going over camera settings, shooting 1-2 sessions that we plan together, and discussing editing according to the look you would like to achieve. The entire day is focused on you.
Thanks to all the wonderful vendors listed below, the winner of the mentoring session will also receive a $1500.00 Cash Prize. This can be used towards travel for the session, new gear, props, etc. If you need help coming up with ways to spend it, trust me, I have ideas!
A SECOND winner will be chosen for online newborn editing with the one and only Dewdrops Photography by Amy McDaniel! I’m so stoked about this addition!
I also have a special prize for my local friends & fans– A session of your choice, including 10 of the best images on a CD.
All winners have been notified.
