I know that Greenville (and surrounding areas) are covered in a yellow blanket – but has anyone else realized that SPRING IS HERE!?!?! I’m so excited that spring has finally decided to show its face. Spring means new beginnings and that means new ideas! It is now time for Lovelace Photography’s first “Say Cheese” Photo Contest.

The rules are simple, and the winner gets their very own shoot with LP absolutely FREE!

2. Send your ONE favorite picture to me via email I will then post them to a special contest album on my facebook fan page.

3. Join my facebook fan page, either by searching for “Lovelace Photography” on facebook, or by the link found here:

4. Send people (your friends, family, co-workers, etc.) to join my facebook fan page and VOTE for their favorite picture (i.e. YOURS!)

Family Time: The Pools

Meet Cohen...and Donna and Aubrey! I had the honor of being Cohen's first "pro" photographer last week. He is such an adorable little guy and his parents are so very proud! They were awesome to photograph -I enjoyed it immensely!

He had enough of the camera! ;)

No sight is sweeter to me than a mom holding her baby

I am thrilled for this family and their new addition! I know GOD has great things in store for this little one! He's got great parents who love him and I know they desire GOD's best for him. I can't wait to watch him grow up! Thank you for letting me share these moments with you all!

New Item: Inspirational Prints

I'm so excited to be working on a new project! A friend of mine and I have been talking back and forth about designing inspirational prints but have never done it. So I got "inspired" one day and decided to take the project to task! I'm am absolutely loving this project! This is one of my favorite prints so far:

These prints can be ordered up to 11x14 size. If a larger print is requested let me know and we can redesign it to fit your size specifications. It's amazing to me to see the beauty of God's handiwork and to know that He created it for US! That's the inspiration behind these prints. To couple GOD's creation with HIS Word. I'm currently working on more designs and will post them soon!

Free Photo Shoot

For quite some time I've been studying other photographers - their style, business procedures, methods, etc. I like to watch and see what works for them - and what doesn't! I am inspired by so many fellow photographers and designers. It is fascinating to me to see their businesses grow and in that you see their skill just evolve! It's awesome!!!! I have a few forms of advertising I've been working with but I want to continue with my favorite: WORD OF MOUTH! When my customer's share with their friends about their experience with Lovelace Photography it is the ultimate compliment!

So, in honor of the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons I am running a new contest. We currently have 55 fans - I want to see that grow and I do mean GROW! By Christmas I want to see us hit 250 fans. I don't think that it's an unattainable goal. I know I'm going to need help reaching it though so I'm running a contest.

Every contest has to have rules, so here goes:

1. The contest will be open from November 5th-November 30th. I'll announce the winner on December 1st!

2. If you aren’t already a business fan, simply follow this link and click “Become a Fan” at the top of the page.

3. Then copy and paste this onto your Facebook status update: "Win a FREE Photo Shoot from: Become a fan of Lovelace Photography. Visit and click "Become a Fan"

4. Send me a note or tag me in your status so you get counted! Every time you post this message in your status, your name will be entered in the drawing. You can only be counted once per day even if you post it multiple times each day.

Thanks for helping, and good luck!

Rice: Family

In July I was able to do a family shoot for the Rice family. They are such a sweet family that I am blessed to be friends with. We attempted to pattern their pictures after ones they had taken when their first daughter was born. It was quite a challenge, but such fun! We really got some great shots. Hope you enjoy!
