and the winner is....


for the BEST OF 2009 with 92 votes (really!) is #21 Stylin Aubree!

For being selected she (along with her family) will receive a FREE session in 2010! I am also sweetening the deal and including a $200 print credit to be used! Way to go Aubree!!

Now, she wasn't the only winner tonight - all 328 of you (holy cow people, that is A LOT of votes!) had an equal chance of winning! So, I headed over to Random.org and used their nifty "True Random Number Generator" inserting the numbers 1 - 328. As you can see from the screen shot I took of the results, vote #272 is the lucky winner!!
Who is #272 you might be asking? It is Gail Franklin!! With her entry, she writes "Your photos are so beautiful. I will keep you in mind for when I have grandbabies." Awww.. thanks Gail (and I'm glad this will be going to someone who likes my work - now tell your kids to get going on some grandbabies this year for you! LOL
Gail is the recipient of a FREE session in 2010 AND (to entice them grandbabies along a little faster) I'll also be including a $200 print credit as well for her! (I'll be emailing you soon Gail :)

Really, you truly are all winners in my book! There were LOTS of votes for so many of them! #9 (Golden Sunset) had a load of votes (42!) and lots seemed to like the blooper of #14 falling into the water (heehhehe! hopefully there won't be a repeat of that event this year!) #'s 14, 15 and 16 were all fairly close (within a few votes of each other).

I also felt it was time for a little updating here on the blog (cough, cough.. new header) and used the 1st and 2nd place images ("stylin Aubree" and "Golden Sunset". For the 3rd image, I used one of my all time personal favorites :)

Well, now that I've stayed up (again) past my bedtime counting votes and announcing winners, I'd better get to bed! Thanks again everyone and here's to an even better 2010!
