Bloggers meet Andi Eaton…
Better late than never, right?!?! Finally, I made it to New Orleans to photograph last year’s Facebook Frenzy contest winner!! If you’re just chiming in and don’t recount the contest that was held a year ago, please allow me to explain. All I wanted for Christmas in 2008 was friends…Facebook Friends that is!! I was new to the fb world and thought that it would be a fantastic tool in which to share my art with others. The deal was – for every 10 friends you referred your name would go into a drawing. The more you referred, the greater your chances of winning. You see, it was a RANDOM DRAWING! Yep – I just RANDOMLY drew a name. If your name was drawn – I would fly (AT MY EXPENSE) anywhere in the country and photograph YOU! It didn’t matter if it was a wedding, a portrait session or just-because session – I wanted everyone eligible! Well, little did I know that it would be quite a successful contest!! I made just under 1000 new friends. And although it took me a year to get out and photograph the fashionable, Andi Eaton, I think it was well worth the wait!!
We had an amazing time tearing up the streets of New Orleans. A special thank you to Tommy for rocking out that BIG HAIR!!
Hmmm…maybe I should hold this contest again??

And I couldn’t resist sharing this image. This little old lady made me smile! Made me laugh! Made my heart sing! In that split second that I met her, she made me feel so thankful and blessed that I get to do what I love – meet and photograph people all over this beautiful world!
