Sponsor and giveaway time again…….


Come take a peek, especially if you live in Arizona or know someone who lives there.


Liz, from Red Bucket Photography is just going to amaze you. She is a mom and a photographer, based out of Mesa, AZ but shoots on location in the surrounding areas (Gilbert, Chandler, Scottsdale, Tempe, Apache Junction and Queen Creek). She is willing to travel and loves to photograph families, newborns, children, seniors, engagements, and weddings. Ahhhhh, what a busy woman.


But wait, your little heart is going to melt………….just as mine did. She takes such precious baby and toddler photos.


She has an eye for engagement shots. And wow, the clarity.


She takes priceless wedding shots…….and even has a little fun with it. Cracks me up.


And Liz does a great job capturing family moments. Such a real treasure to have forever.


Whew, makes me want to plan a family vacation just to have Liz photograph our family.
So beautiful.


And wow, Liz wants to do an incredible giveaway here on Make it and love It. And I promise, you’re going to love this one.


Liz is offering a free session which includes a 1 hour session, unlimited outfit changes, and a CD of 15 images (color and black and white- so 30 total) from the session. $250 value.


Anyone can enter, but for anyone 25 miles from her house, she charges a travel fee that can be determined at booking. The giveaway is transferable, so anyone can enter and give it to a friend/ family member that lives here if they don’t want to pay for travel expenses.


**Remember, Christmas is fast approaching, so Liz is offering a 10% discount off your total purchase for anyone who books a session before June 30th (this includes session fees, prints, and digital images). The session can be scheduled any time before November 21st.


What a perfect chance to capture some real treasured moments.


**Please note: The format for entering giveaways has changed. You must enter in a separate comment for each entry. (Example: If you’d like 5 extra entries for visiting a shop, you must enter 5 different comments, in addition to any other entries/comments.) This will help me out immensely. Typing out every entry was becoming a full time job all itself. :) Wow. But such a great thing that so many are participating. So thanks.

Good luck!
