Update: This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the winners, Renee and Joe Powers!
Photography is so much more than f-stops, shutter speed and white balance. It’s about documenting your feelings, your relationships and your true selves at a given stage in your life. It’s about capturing what’s real, so that 10, 20, 50, 100 years from now, you and your family will have insight into who you really were at that time (side note—I just discovered a photo of my great, great grandfather from 1866. It’s such a treasure for our family. Just imagine how amazing it would have been if we could get more insight into his personality and relationships).
In my search to unlock honest, real moments with my couples and families, I’ve been taking a class on the Beloved concept by Jesh de Rox out of Canada. I’m working to adapt his concepts and field guide into my own approach, and I’m excited to start integrating it into my own work. Here’s how Jesh describes the concept:
“A beloved portrait session is not just a photo shoot, it’s a celebration of love and genuine communication. As beloved photographers, we want to make honest images that move people, that document these small moments that you cherish but perhaps sometimes forget. These images serve as a doorway to bring two people back to the beginning of their journey together. We invite couples to share a piece of themselves and capture valuable moments through the art of photography.”
In honor of Beloved, I’m giving away a complimentary session and framed 8×10 print to one couple. Any couple. Maybe you’ve been married for two years. Maybe you’ve been married for fifty.
To enter, just like Allie Siarto Photography on Facebook and post any photo of the two of you. Every additional “like” your image receives on Facebook gives you another entry into the random drawing. I’ll announce the winning couple on May 3.
Because my business is based in East Lansing, the winning shoot will take place in the Greater Lansing area.
