And the hours your neighbor will oogle and envy you for having better pictures than her. Yes, my friend. You will be oogled out.

But you're from Seattle, you say? And I don't live there anymore? Ah--but guess what? I will be back for a bit this summer.

And Las Vegas- I will be there this Spring.

Ok, I KNOW this is a long shot (since I'm in UT) but I would LOVE to win a photo shoot for the next time you come to Mormon Mecca. So here's a roll of the dice (and I'm hoping for sixes) . . .

wilkinson_fam said...

Oh, my favorite photo? Geez, how can I? I LOVE the family shots you just posted and the individuals with that gorgeous little black girl. Could she be more beautiful? I think not.

Rachel said...

Oh Carrie...how I have dreamed of you taking our family pictures. I LOVE all your pictures but there are a couple of your friend Kristie with the ice cream on her pregnant belly and her "running" to the bathrooms. Priceless. I love it! Memories of pregnancy. And just so you know, I want this BAD! I'm advertising on my blog so I can up my chances!

kladle said...

I would LOVE to win another shoot with you! My favorite picture is of course of my cute girls! I am also mentioning this on my blog! Woohoo!!

kladle said...

Okay, I just posted on both my blogs:
http://thelatestscooptoo.blogspot.com and http://devinandkathy.blogspot.com

Annette said...

Count me in. I usually have no luck but I do have a question. We would love to have you do a family shoot but we want to wait until our son and daughter in law are in town from Idaho. How long do you require notice to do a shoot and can you do individual couples as well? And BTW- I love your work. I love the photos you took of the D. Ladle family. Thanks for this chance. If I don't win I need to contact you somehow.
Annette Ladle

Angela said...

my favorites are of kathy and her family. i am biased -- as she is my friend. yes - i mentioned you on my blog. thanks! angela davidson

Kimberly said...

I love the Ladle's family picture with everyone smiling and laughing. It so perfectly captures the love and joy in that wonderful family! Gorgeous pictures!

I'm going to mention you on my blog right now!

Thanks,
Kim Middleton

Erin said...

Oh wow, choose ONE photo? Impossible. So I'll say that ONE OF my favorites is in the blog "I miss you so" of the two adorable girls. I love the black and white of the little gal leaning on the tree. SO BEAUTIFUL! And of course, all photos of Kai. I miss him. :(

J.L said...

I am always so happy when I check your blog!
One of my favorite pics is of Joanna when she was pregnant where she's sitting and holding a book-there's a lamp in the background.
I have mentioned you on my blog and added a link to your photo blog!
Hugs!

Aplanalps said...

I just heard about your photos from Kim M blog. I love the lollipop gang. Very cute idea.

Vivian said...

I mentioned you on my blog and added you on favorite sites.

Tara said...

I love the ice cream picture with Kristie! Oh, and the one with the little boy and girl rolling and laughing on the grass (near the bottom of the page). So, I know you probably won't be heading up here to NYC anytime too soon, but just to let you know, when you do decide to make it up here, you have a free hotel (our front room) and free food (whatever I can make) during your stay up here! Bring the whole fam! And, Central Park has got to be the most amazing photo place in the world! You'll feel like a little kid in a candy shop!

Jen O said...

Ooh! I need this! I'd love to have you take pics of the new baby when you're up here this summer. How can I pick just one favorite from your blog? Of course, my very favorite is of little Seth way back in December 2007, but I also love the baby in the bookcase and the mom and boy and the shopping cart from last month. I'm putting this on my blog so I can have a better chance of winning!!!

theamazingjohnsons said...

I love Kristie with the ice cream! That picture makes me smile! I also like the one of my belly with my kid's hands reaching up. :) You are so talented.

bwanafats said...

Ah, so fun to look at all the cute poses! It's hard to pick, but I think I gotta go with the baby on the bookshelf.

Erin said...

I love, love the very first picture! This liitle girl is so cute with her big beautiful eyes. What a great photo!

J said...

Hands down my favorite photo is the one of the baby on/in the shelf...amazing!

Kelly P said...

How can I pick a favorite? Each photo I see has so much intensity and feeling. It's amazing. When I have think of one photo, scratch that, one post of yours that I love - it's the Daddy's Girls post dated October 14, 2007. It is my favorite. I love the colors and how they seem so concentrated. I love how they contrast with the blue bench. I can picture the picture without even looking at it. You're amazing.

I'm posting on my blog, too - so all my friends (some of whom are your friends, too, I'm sure!) can see how wonderful you are.

I wanna win ;)

Thomas Family said...

Hi..I am a friend of Kelly Parks and I live right outside of Seattle...She had great things to say about you and your photos and I couldn't agree more that these photos are amazing...my favorite for sure is the grocery cart kiss.

Darren and Brandi said...

Oh wow! This is exciting! I usually don't win things, but it's worth a shot right?? My favorites are the prego pictures in general... simply because I'm pregnant right now and I just love them! Oh how I wish you were up here to take pictures of my huge belly! Also, my number one favorite is the Lollipop gang... adorable!

Laura Bloomfield said...

Carrie, My favorite is the baby on the bookshelf! I love it! Also, I think you would just LOVE to see New Mexico and do a photoshoot with the most BEAUTIFUL baby (mine)!!! Or, I suppose I could wait until July and do it in PA! Either way, PICK ME, PICK ME!!! Or, pick Kelly and make her wait until July!

Thanks for the contest!!

Living in Tally said...

Okay, I finally figured this out...I am silly! I must say the shelf picture is fab. But seriously, you made a shopping cart look good. I love the Ladle girls too!

Erin said...

Look at how many posts you get when you give free stuff away :) Let's just say that if I win, I'll take my session in FL in the glorious, glorious sunshine. As for my favorite pic, aside from your Kai growling with chocolate all over his face, I honestly don't know if it is on your blog or your website. It is the picture of the pregnant woman in black with the pink umbrella in profile and you can't see her face. For some reason, it just spoke to me. I could look at it forever. It is so personal yet mysterious and I love it!

Laura Bloomfield said...

P.S. I forgot to let you know that you are now on my blog as well. Yea for the double entry!!!!

Ginger said...

My fave is the mom kissing the baby in the shopping cart. Simple and sweet. I saw you advertised on Kelly and Laura's blogs and although I don't technically live in any of those places you mentioned I'm still hoping I win and that we can do that whole "work something out" thing in Utah since I often travel there.

J said...

Oh I posted it on my blog too.

Kassie said...

I would love to win this! I had a semi-photo shoot with just my pregnant belly and my son this last summer and now I have a cute 3 month old that could be added to the mix! I really love your abilities as a photographer Carrie, your pictures and ideas are priceless.

My favorite picture is the boy in the shopping cart kissing his mother. I also did a post on my blog about this give away(cam-kassie.blogspot.com). Even if I don't win, could you tell me the next time you plan on being in Washington and available to photograph my family? or maybe post a calendar on your blog or something? Thanks a ton!

The Jaggar Family said...

I have a few favorite photos! One is the one of the Ladle Family, when they're all laughing. I love pictures that capture a moment like that. I also love all the pictures of pregnant women, it may just be because I wish I had done wthat when I was pregnant with Riker, but they are all sooo cute, and very creative.

The Jaggar Family said...

Ohhh and I mentioned this on my blog too!

Jen said...

I can't tell you how much I would LOVE to win this.

My favorite pic is in the post right before this one, of the little girl with those HUGE brown eyes gazing straight up into your camera. It's breathtaking.

I also blogged you, once in September and once today. You're fabulous and you deserve the lip service!

Amber said...

Love your pictures. There are too many gorgeous ones to pick just one. I love the prego belly and book, the baby in the bookshelf, the mom and baby on he pier, etc. I live in UT but would love for you to snap my little guys!

natalie said...

The pictures with the shopping carts- definite favorite!
I saw this mentioned on the Jaggar's blog. I would LOVE to be chosen for a free photo session. And even if I don't win, I would love to set something up with you this spring. Your pics are fantastic. :)

Kevin I said...

Carrie, I adore too many of your photos it is hard to pick just one. I love the Lollipop Gang - how cute and creative. I love your pregnancy belly shots too. Jenny Idzi

iamamurphy said...

My favorite is from the "Down By the Sea" blog (9/20) of the baby (in focus) crawling, with the mom watching (out of focus) behind. :)

iamamurphy said...

Oh, and I blogged about your giveaway with a link on my blog! :)

Aubrey said...

Hi Carrie!
How do you pick one favorite, lol?! I like the shopping cart one (Mom and boy) and the one of the little girl holding a leaf...you can't see her face. Also going to mention you on my blog right now...

Momma Twitch said...

I'm another Utah person! lol I LOVE your photography! My favorite ones are the ones with the shopping cart. I think those are way cute! Oooh, and the eyes on the little girl! Holy cow, those dark brown eyes and those lashes! OH! I linked you on my blog cathyroggiatwitchell.blogspot.com

Kim said...

I love your work so much! I still feel giddy when I look at my pictures!! So, I have a couple of favorites... I would have to say one my favorites is the one of Taylor kissing me in the shopping cart. There is another picture that impressed me so much that I've actually shown it to other people--it is the pregnant mom with the pink umbrella. I want that picture next time I'm pregnant, it's priceless! I'm mentioning you on my blog right now!

Brittany said...

So, this is awesome! I love the Braithwaites. Especially the shopping cart photo. Also, the photo of the pregnant mom in the green t-shirt. I also mentioned the drawing on my blog. All my fingers and toes are crossed!

Angie said...

I love all your photos, but I especially love the lolli pop gang and the georgia snow ones!

Angie said...

I just posted about your contest on my blog. I hope I win!!

Abeeka said...

My favorite? The hands-full of newborn in black and white. Call me baby-hungry, but at 8 1/2 months pregnant, I figure I'm entitled...hee hee

Jessie said...

Well...I as well love all of your pictures and you took some pictures of Nick and I along time ago, do you remember? Those are still my favorite pictures of us and I would love to have new pictures of us and the kids hanging up next to them!! :)

I love the lollipop gang and the Georgia snow. Those are my favorite if I am forced to choose but I love all your pictures!

Crafty Mom said...
