{contest} The Best of 2009!

What a year 2009 has been!  Thank you so much to everyone who has helped Stephanie Fisher Photography become such a success.  I have enjoyed meeting and photographing so many families, kiddos and babies this year.  It has truly been a blessing!

I have compiled 15 favorite portraits from the year (and let me tell ya- this was NOT easy!  I definitely couldn’t narrow down to 10!) and now it’s up to you guys to decide the FAVORITE of 2009!

The family’s portrait that is chosen as the winner will receive an 11×14 print from the session or from a new ’10 session.  But wait!  There’s more!  (in my best infomercial voice)  2 lucky commenters will also win!  I will be giving away one mini session and one full session in a random draw from all of the comments on this post.

How to vote:  Simply leave me a comment on this post and let me know the number of your favorite portrait.  Contest ends at 5:00 p.m. (central) 12/31/2009 and the winner will be announced shortly thereafter.  Only one vote per person, per email address please.

Thanks again for such an amazing year.  I can’t wait to see what 2010 brings!

Oh, and if you are in the Central Alabama area- be sure to watch Talk of Alabama on ABC tomorrow morning.  I will be a guest on the show!

Here they are… my 2009 top 15!

They are all so good!! But I LOVE #4! The colors are fantastic and I love how the little girl has her arm under her head! Great photo!

Amy - December 28, 2009 - 5:21 pm

They are some cute kids! Great photos, I love the color in #11 but I think I am going to have to go with #2 as my official vote. The placement, contrast and gorgous color right above his head blends it in all so nicely.

Diana Baker - December 28, 2009 - 5:22 pm

Well of course #5 is the best! Not only because she is my little princess but because I love the way all the peach in her skin comes out with the beautiful peachy flower on her little head! The soft white blanket she is on is like she is floating on a cloud!

Mandy Pittman - December 28, 2009 - 5:25 pm

You are an awesome photographer! I love love love #10! You capture life!

Deidra Hand - December 28, 2009 - 5:26 pm

All of your pictures are fantastic, but #7 is my favorite.

Lane Parker - December 29, 2009 - 6:25 pm

# 7 has got to be the winner…Though all the pictures are precious. the one of a United States Air Force pilot who had to leave his first baby behind to go across the world to protect all of us is universal. His holding his tiny newborn in those huge hands is a perfect symbol of his protective love for her, and for all of us. This picture is more than a photograph of a beautiful baby…It speaks of a father’s sacrificial love for his daughter, and, in turn, for us.

Ashley - December 29, 2009 - 6:31 pm
