Welcome to the Red Bean Photography Blog!

I am a Salt Lake City, Utah based natural light portrait photographer. I love capturing life's moments-- from a child's joy and exuberance to a bride's glow on her big day. I love creating visual memories for you to treasure forever.

I have arrived safely in Utah and am still in the midst of unpacking and organizing, so to distract me from all the boring household things I need to do around here, I decided to have my first ever contest!

THE PRIZE: 1 family, child, bridal, or engagement photo session. This includes the session time, a $30 print credit, and 1 high res digital image of your choice from the session. $150 value!

THE RULES: To enter you must spread the word about the contest by either blogging, facebook, or twitter with a link to this blog and then leave a comment with a link to your post. You can get multiple entries by doing more than one. You can also get an extra entry if you already are or become a fan of Red Bean Photography on Facebook. Click on the facebook link in the sidebar to find it. (Forgot I put that there.) Please tell me in the comments if you did this. You have until Monday, June 22 at midnight to enter.

DETAILS: The winner must be able to schedule the session by the end of August. Obviously, it must take place in Utah. I will travel up to an hour from Salt Lake City for the shoot.

***I want to add that even if you don't live in Utah, you could still enter and give the session to a family member or friend that does. Think how much they would love you for it! ;-)

Spread the word! You can use the photo above for your post.

Ok you are linked up on my blog and facebook plus I am already a fan of yours on facebook. And I feel like I should do the classy thing and take myself out of the running so that other people have a better chance of winning, but I REALLY want to win;)

This contest is now posted to my blog. You know I am a huge fan of your photography!

I'm entering my dear old brother and future sister-in-law to this drawing. They are getting married in October, and could certainly use an engagement pictorial.

Pick me! Pick us!

Since I'm only on Facebook, that's what I did.
1. I became a fan a LONG time ago!
