Heather Ladd Photography is celebrating THREE years! Three years of photographing families, children, babies, pregnant mommas, couples, seniors and brides and grooms! It has been so fun! I am still learning and growing but I am so thankful that my husband lovingly nudged me to jump in and chase my dreams and that I am able to call this love I have for photography a business three years later! I am also so thankful for the people who trusted me to capture their most precious moments. Mostly though, I am thankful that God cares about my heart, my desires and my dreams and I give Him the glory for the blessing that this business has been! So, to celebrate three years and the NEW blog, I am going to host a "blog party!" What is a blog party, you ask?? Well, it is three days of give aways here on the blog! Some of my favorite businesses (owned and operated by some pretty awesome chicas) graciously donated some wonderful things and I donated a few things of my own. Lets get this party started!!!

And the ever so talented Sarah Clark, the famed creator of adoarable Plumpies AND the awesome Miss Money Bags Wallet, donated an adorable Plumpie Owl. (I personally LOVE Owls and LOVE anything Sarah makes!!) Check out her etsy shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/plumpies?section_id=10843469
Also, we had to have cake at a party right?? Amanda Durst, owner of Sweet Treats donated a $40 Gift Certificate
Ok, and I cant really say my TRUE feelings about Amanda's sweet treats or you might think I am a LITTLE crazy - but to say I am obsessed is an understatement. I am pretty sure I owe atleast 5lbs of my total weight to her because I CANNOT STOP EATING HER CAKE when it is around. She has made all of my kiddos birthday cakes over the last year and they have been nothing short of AMAZING AND DELICIOUS! Check her adorable delicious treats out at http://www.facebook.com/sweettreats#!/AmandasSweetTreats
Ok, and then the I tunes gift card and Old Navy Gift Card I donated because I think if you listen to some good tunes on the way to your photo shoot and have on some new duds for your photo shoot it will just go smoother! Also, the $50 gift Certificate and the 16x20 print credit will help you fill your walls with pictures of your babes or your family. Finally the grand prize is the free Beach Session this summer. I love the sandy beach because it ALMOST seems like your at the beach and it makes for some great photographs. Check out some of last summer's sessions! http://heatherladdphotography.com/html_gallery.cfm?menu_itemID=238547&load=html
Thanks again to the awesome businesses who donated! You guys rock! OK - check back tomorrow, Jan 20 - that's when were gonna party like its 1999! :)
