february goals & iTunes giveaway!!

to my faithful readers,

i finally made it out of the house today. went to the gym and to chick-fil-a with my roommate cindy. i felt like i was free after being trapped in this house for 3 days. as i sit here on this snow day and watch the ellen show, i decided it would be productive to make some goals for february and also fun to give a little something away to one of you! after all, i am thankful for your readership and support!

so here are my february goals:

-book a wedding for this summer.
-get caught up on finances for january, so that i don't get so behind on 2010 stuff.
-start using my iTouch more to take pictures on a whim.
-post at least 1 video from my flip camera that i got for christmas.
-give away my photography by shooting at 2 "daddy/daughter date nights" at chick-fil-a.
-learn more about shooting in RAW.

and for the giveaway! (how many of you just skipped reading my goals and scrolled straight to the giveaway??? i know who you are.) i am going to give away a FREE $50 iTunes giftcard to one of you. here's what you have to do to qualify for the giveaway:

I have a lot of February goals that mainly involve getting physically and mentally ready for baby Wyatt. Wash Newborn clothes (Speirs really fit into those things?) and getting our home prepared for another little one but outside of that I plan to finish Keller's "The Reason for God."

Your photography is so beautiful, I love to keep up with your photos and hope one day you can do an event I am a part of! Thanks for the great giveaway!)

Hey Katherine!

I am so proud of the work that you are doing! The pictures of Greg and Michelle's wedding are out of this world!

My goal for the month of February is to over come my fear of indoor weddings! I have one to shoot on the 12th down at the beach! Wish me luck!

I thought that I was a fan of "FP" I will go check immediately!

I talk about your work constantly!

I would like to know more about RAW as well, they might be having a workshop on it in camera club.

Keep up the good work!
