{Congrats to the winners of the AUSTIN STONE LIVE cd and the INTERRUPTED books by Jen Hatmaker.}




My friend Kim Ellis has taken some amazing pictures for our family (Look at all the pictures on the left <— of my kids.  Yeap she took those!).  Not only is she one of my favorite friends in the world, she is also married to the drummer in Aaron's band and is an AH-MAZING photographer!  Having photographer friends is one of the best things in the world.  You have friends that just always have cameras on them and somehow you end up with great pictures of your kids.  🙂  LOVE it!



This giveaway is something you are not going to want to pass up.  In fact if you have friends and/or family in Austin, even you are gonna want to try and win this for them!!!  If you live in Atlanta you should try and win, because Kim has family there so she has to visit eventually, right?!?!?  Or if you live in Van, TX (which I still have no clue were this place is, but I hear it's close to Dallas) you might want to try too because she has family there too so she'll have to go there eventually!!!





Here's what you need to do to win:

1.  Like COATI PHOTOGRAPHY on facebook:  www.facebook.com/coatiphotography – while you are there leave her some love and tell her why you want to win!! — leave me a comment here telling me that you liked her on facebook.


2.  Follow Kim on Twitter twitter.com/kim_ellis —- comment and tell me you follow her.


3.  Tweet and/or facebook about this contest.  I'll make it easy for you:  I wanna win a free photo session from @kim_ellis and you could win too.  Check out @jamie_ivey DREAMING BIG DREAMS blog:  www.dreamingbigdreams.net



THREE ways to win.  You don't have to do all three.  You can just do one.  Or you could do two.  Whatever you want!!!  Remember enter a NEW comment for each thing you do.  If you put it all in one comment you lessen your chances of winning.  Oh how I want you to win this!!!!  You won't regret this one bit!  It's $300!!


Contest ends at noon on Tuesday.


Oh and remember if you don't win, you still win!  Check out the discount code in the picture above that Kim is giving you.  Even if you don't win, you can get 10% off!  I told you that Kim was nice!



**This has nothing to do with this contest, but while you are cruising around the web visit Kim's personal blog about their journey to their baby through the foster system.  Oh I'm so excited for them!!
