There are so many great gifts you can give with photos. Calendars, photo blocks, and even a just a nicely framed photo will definitely make many family members smile. However, if you have someone you really love, a great gift is to give them a photo session. We all seem to have a hard time getting around to taking pictures; wouldn’t you love a certificate for a photography session, taking the work out of tracking down a great photographer, and moving “get family photos” off of the someday section of your to-do list?

We had our pictures taken last month. I wanted them for a Christmas card (and setting a deadline helps make it happen :D). Of course, I put it off long enough that it was cold and a little crazy. We had a string of mishaps that day and I honestly wondered if we would be able to get anything good. I was amazed and thrilled when I saw the pictures Stephanie captured. She is a miracle worker! Stephanie Bletzacker specializes in kids and it is nothing short of astounding to see the beautiful images she can coax out often unwilling subjects. Here area a few of our pictures:

Now for the really fun part; Stephanie has graciously offered one of you a free photo session (a $150 value). You do have to be in the Salt Lake Area (or willing to travel and it may be worth it, wink wink) to enjoy Stephanie’s skills.
