The Best of 2012 Contest | Raleigh Portrait Photography

Here we go!

I received so much positive feedback from this contest last year, I’ve decided to make it an annual event.

It is also a great joy to me to see all of the beautiful faces again that I photographed this year.  Definitely humbling & absolutely inspiring!

It was such a tough job to narrow down the images, my first run through I ended up with well over 100!

However, I bit my nails and sipped my coffee and managed to narrow it down.

Head on over to my Facebook fan page  to vote for your favorite … HERE is a link to the image album.  Simply be a fan of Kathy Howard Photography, and comment “VOTE” under your favorite image(s).

Voting ends Monday night, winner announced Tuesday morning.

(I am having technical difficulties at the moment, but will post a slideshow of the images here on my site once resolved)

Have a great weekend!



It’s a First Year Celebration & Giveaway!! | Raleigh Cary Lifestyle Portrait Photographer


CONGRATULATIONS Comment # 8 … MISSY MAIORANO!!!  You are the winner!!

I wish I were more of a talented writer, but I’m not.  So, let’s just get to the good stuff here … the  GIVEAWAY!



A 90 minute (yes, NINETY!) massage at the amazing Bloom Skin Spa.  Choose from : Swedish, Deep Tissue or Hot Stone.  Ahhhhhhhh!



1.  Be my FAN on Facebook.  If you are not already, you can click HERE to visit my fan page.

2. COMMENT on THIS post.  I will choose a random winner from the comments on this post.  One comment per person, please.

What to comment you may be thinking?  Well, I am currently seeking a few choice words that describe my style of photography.  I would love it if you’d take a minute to jot down a few.  However, it is not required and you can simply say hello, or tell me what’s for dinner.  Whatever floats your boat!



This contest starts today and runs until noon on Saturday, March 17th.  Winner will be announced Sunday afternoon !


The Small Print:

Winner is responsible for own transportation to and from the massage appointment.  Sorry out-of-staters 🙂

Bloom Skin Spa is a very busy salon (because they are so awesome!), so it is highly suggested the winner book the massage appointment asap, as it may take a few weeks to get on the schedule.  Patience is a virtue 🙂

Contest rules are subject to change at any time by Kathy Howard Photography.


May the luck of the Irish be with you!!




And the winner is ….



The seventh comment is by … Loretta Jo Schlatzer!  Congratulations!
