The Gratitude Giveaway : Vancouver Island Wedding + Engagement Photographer | Qualicum Beach Photographers

Last week, I shared a little bit of love for all of my past clients, current clients, family & friends for being so supportive and simply awesome. With thanksgiving approaching, I figured it would be the perfect time to spread the love as well as encourage everybody to reflect on what they are grateful for. Here is what the post said:

"Thanksgiving is coming up & I would love to thank ALL OF YOU for your support over these past few years! I feel so lucky to be able to do what I love everyday! To celebrate? ....A GIVEAWAY! But first. To the women who have allowed me to do makeup for their wedding, special event or just because; THANK YOU for trusting in me. It brings me so much happiness when I see you look in the mirror and not only do you look beautiful but you feel it too. For all the people who have allowed me & my camera to capture their love stories and life's sweetest moments; THANK YOU. The heartfelt messages of joy and appreciation I receive from you gives me a very happy heart and it is so amazing getting to be a small part of your lives.

I don't want to ramble, so just know you are all wonderful and I appreciate you. NOW; its been a while since I've done a giveaway SO... COMMENT BELOW & tell me all about what your thankful for. On Friday October 10th I will draw the name of a lucky someone to win a photo session!"

I had many people share what they were grateful for as well as encouraging family and friends to join in. It was a joy to read. {You can read them here if you wish} It should really become a regular thing at least once a day to reflect on the good things in life. No matter how simple.  I thank you all for opening up and sharing with me :) 

Now, TODAY IS OCTOBER 10th and I have done a random draw to find out who our winner will be!
