Justin Hackworth Photo Session GIVEAWAY

• 23 July 2008

This is, so far, the granddaddy of all giveaways on this blog...a photo session for you {and your family or sweetheart} from renowned photographer Justin Hackworth (do you remember me talking about him here?) As if a photo session isn't generous enough, he'll also throw in one 12x12 fine art print and a $50 credit towards prints! (a $350 value) This is the perfect opportunity to gift yourself with beautiful photographs of you, your sweetheart, your children, your parents, your pet, or just you!

Justin recently captured our family on film and we are loving the results. Here are a few of my many favorites:




Here in Utah there are many choices when it comes to photographers, making it important to choose wisely. Let it be known that Justin isn't your average photographer and I'll tell you why:

1. His talent is not limited to one type of photography but all genres. His 30 Strangers project is a case in point. I've enjoyed keeping tabs on this project so much!

2. He is incredibly personable and has a hip look to match his hip photographic/photo journalistic style (as in, he won't show up in jogging pants on your wedding day!).

3. His photographs never look the same. Everyone's session is unique and you really see that come through when you view your individual proofs.

4. He's popular. Stylish boutiques like this one and this one are some of his many clients.

Are you getting the idea? :)

On to some of his many fabulous photographs to help you catch a glimpse of what might be in store for you and your loved ones...
