just because studios giveaway

Giveaway #15

Our last Reader Appreciation giveaway! Wow, what a crazy week! We hope you enjoyed all our great giveaways from our generous sponsors. Be sure to check back next week for all our winners.



For our final giveaway we have another great photography package for the Seattle area. Just Because Studios does beautiful work inside and outside the studio. Photographer Melanie Smith says, "In times like these, it really becomes apparent what’s important in life. Family, time with family, memories from those great times… what’s more important than that?"


Melanie specializes in family and children's portrait photography in and around Seattle and Seattle's eastside (Sammamish, Redmond, Issaquah, Bellevue, Woodinville, and Kirkland). She takes a 'photo-journalistic' approach to capturing your child at play or capturing the way you interact together as a family. She will also throw in some 'posed' portraits in there along the way, too.






Just Because Studios is offering our Seattle area readers one indoor or outdoor photo sitting, two free 8x10s, and two free 5x7s (a $156 value!!). She hopes that these two items will give people some of that ‘together time’ that can slip away all too quickly! Thanks, Melanie!

To enter, check out the galleries on the Just Because Studios Web site and leave us a comment telling us whether you'd choose an indoor or outdoor setting, based on her portfolio. We think it's going to be a hard choice! Comments must be received by Wednesday, June 3 at 11:59pm PDT. Good luck, Seattleites!

It was a hard choice, but I love outdoor pictures! We don't live in Seattle but are frequent visitors (I grew up in Sammamish and my family is out there). We would love this give-a-away! Thanks!

I'd choose an outdoor shoot-- we're moving to Sammamish Plateau from Portland in July. I'd take some outside shots of the kiddos to show them off in their new surroundings!

Thank you for the opportunity!

I just love the outdoor shoots!

Jessica said...

Outdoors for sure!!

Audrey said...

I LOVE outdoor shots! And unless it's raining, the usually constant gray sky we have here in Seattle is PERFECT for outside shots! I need to win this one. My baby will be 1 on the 5th and I don't have a single professional picture of her. (she's the 4th, they don't get nearly as many pictures as the 1st!

Amy said...

Beautiful pictures. I would be thrilled with either the outdoor or indoor shoot If I had to choose I would go for the outdoor session!

ZANNEBONHAM said...

That is a hard choice I love them both, but I think I would have to choose outdoor. Because I have never had professional pictures taken outside of my kids. I love her work, beautiful!

Jessica said...

With 3 little boys, I'd for sure pick outside! It's gorgeous this time of year and they love to be outside.

Tara Bills said...

I love the outdoor shots. She really captures the subjects and the scenery.

Sarah Seitz said...

This would be SO fun! I would definitely choose an outdoor shoot for several reasons. First, I think that people are more relaxed when they are out in nature, and it creates for a more relaxed setting. Second, Seattle is BEAUTIFUL right now! The sky, the water, the trees, the flowers. It is all too good to pass up! And thirds, it is clear to me that Melanie is great at capturing light, and I am a huge fan of natural light, it makes everything so pretty! I hope I win!

I think my family would love to have photos of our neice or nephew. From the gallery, I love the photo of the boy laying on the ground with the stuffed frog, so I'd have to pick outdoor.
And with this gorgeous weather we've been having, how could you pick anything other?

raeni said...

I would choose outdoors--you can't beat Seattle outdoors in gorgeous weather like we've been having lately!! And the lighting of her outdoor shots is fantastic!

c said...

Definitely an outdoor setting - none of the kids ever wants to stay indoors!
