Just in Time For Prom!

Just in Time For Prom

Here’s an opportunity you won’t want to miss: be the face of 2008 for Photography by Katie Dawn! Just in Time for Prom is a fun competition geared for high school seniors looking to get trendy and exciting graduation photos. What a better way to end your time in high school than a fashion forward portrait session with an up-and-coming local photographer.

The Prizes:

Three individuals will be chosen for their own 2 hour on-location portrait session (valued at $110) with portrait photographer, Katie Dawn. In addition, each winner will receive a $75 print credit.

How to Enter:

E-mail me a recent *non-professional* image of yourself by 11:59 PM EST Friday May 9, 2008 to katie@katiedawn.com. Include your name, age, and the name of the high school you currently attend. That’s it!!

The Nitty Gritty:

Submission images must be recent, meaning they must have been taken within the past four weeks and reflect your current style (ie. if you’re hair is pink now, it should be pink in your submission image too!).

Submission images must not have been taken professionally and must not be copyrighted material. Photography by Katie Dawn takes no responsibility for any misrepresentation of copyrighted work.

If you are chosen, Photography by Katie Dawn has the right to use your submitted image for the purpose of announcing the winner of the competition and any future promotions related to this competition.

Winners must book their session before May 30th, 2008. In order to receive their complimentary session and $75.00 print credit the session date must take place before June 30, 2008.

$75.00 Print credit will be applied to standard pricing only. All sales are final.

Participants must be willing to sign a model release allowing Photography by Katie Dawn to use chosen images for the purpose of display, portfolio, advertising, website or any publication to promote her studio.

Katie Dawn has the right to exercise full creative control of the session including wardrobe, make-up and location. Bearing in mind we will include images of you in your prom attire, if desired, and that she will with the best of her ability create portraits that highlight your style and personality.

Winners will be notified and announced at 12PM EST on Sunday, May 11th by e-mail and posted to her blog (http://blog.katiedawn.com).

Good Luck to all participants!

What is it all about?

Just in time for prom - a competition for a free session and print credit. I’m looking to expand my business into the realm of those gorgeous young high school seniors. Just close your eyes and imagine an abercrombie and fitch ad - you heard me, no posey posey studio shots. We’re headed outside for a trendy fashion forward session.

Details coming this friday!

Spread the word, you won’t want to miss out on this opportunity.

Birthday Girl.

Well… we managed to get our birthday session in and I am ever so happy that we found the time. I’m working remote so I don’t have the usual editing tools so here is just a tease.

I turned 1/4 century today and this little sweetheart turned 4. I told her it was my birthday wish that we do a photoshoot together, lucky me, I got my wish. Happy Birthday to my beautiful (princess) niece! So glad we got to share a special birthday together!

Just a quick note to let you know that I’m away until April 2nd. It’s girls week for my mom, sister and I down in Mexico - I know… hate me all you want. Hopefully I can post a few pictures as I’m doing a 4th birthday session with my niece down on the beach. I’m really looking forward to it because she is such a beautiful little girl and I know we’ll have lots of fun. And to top it all off, we share the same birthday so we get to celebrate together this year (although, I’m not convinced she really wants to share her birthday)!

Time to get my feet all sandy,

Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice…. this little girl is quite possibly one of the most beautiful babies I’ve ever laid my eyes on.

And don’t forget her ever so cute and precocious big brother. Check out those dimples!

Congrats to Mike and Becky on their recent engagement! In celebration we got together for a fun little photo shoot. I had a great time with them and they make such a cute couple. On a sad note, we’re moving March 1st back to Ontario so I wont get to see this happy pair as often. I may be AWOL for the next few weeks as I’ll be busy stuffing boxes… I promise to post as soon as things get up and running again!

Little Eric just turned 1 year so we celebrated with a photoshoot at home. He just learned to crawl that week so we had fun chasing him around the background.


Looks like Dustin and I are moving back to Ontario in the next few months so I’m cramming in as many sessions in Red Deer before we move. It’s going to be a busy few months so keep checking back for updates.

This thursday I spent the afternoon with the “O” family taking pictures of baby Eric, who just turned 1 year. I am so excited to edit them, I’ll post a peek later this week.

In the meantime, I’ve wanted to capture this baby bum for quite awhile now.
