Children, Family, Infant, Newborn and Toddler Photography

December 30th, 2009 || Posted in Specials || 23 Comments;

2009 has been an amazing year for Tori Ryan Photography, and I want to thank all of you for helping us grow. I have had such a wonderful time meeting your children and family, and I am looking forward to watching everyone grow, as well as meeting new families in 2010!

But first, some fun! I have chosen my Top 10 favorite images from 2009, which definitely was not easy! Now I am leaving it up to you to pick the Best Photo of 2009. The family of the winning portrait will win a free desk print of their choice from their 2009 session, or from a new session in 2010.

But that’s not all! One lucky commenter will be chosen at random to win a free Mini Session in 2010! The only requirement is that the session must take place in the Greater Charleston area. The session is transferable, so share this with friends and family to increase your chances.

How to vote: Leave a comment on this post stating the number of your favorite photo (numbers are listed above each image). The contest will end Sunday, January 3, 2010 at 5:00pm EST. The winner will be announced later that day. Only one vote per person, per email address please. However, you can earn an extra entry by posting about this contest on your Facebook wall! Just leave the link to the wall post in your comment to double both your vote for your favorite image and your chances of winning the Mini Session. Good luck everyone!

And now presenting the Top 10 of 2009…

    Obviously, family members of the photographer cannot win, but my favorite photo of 2009 is not in the 10 you chose….it’s the beautiful blue-eyed baby girl with her hand over her mouth…it takes my breath away! (I know, the eye of the beholder) Of the 10 in the contest, all of which are super, my 2 favorites are #2 & #4….couldn’t choose between them!

    I really like #2 as it embodies the innocent perfection of a child with the window eyes of a wise soul. It is both peaceful and compelling.
