Yan Photography Contemporary Portrait Giveaway $675!!

I'm bumping this giveaway up to the top in case anyone missed it the first time! Enter 3x before midnight Friday !
The amazingly talented (and soon to be dubbed “Krazy”) Diana of
Yan Photography is breaking all the records and hosting this giveaway for a portrait package worth. . . hold on to your hats. . . $675!
If you’re looking for modern lifestyle portraiture from someone who’s got an uncanny knack for capturing the essence of children and families look no further! Yan Photography operates in Boise, ID and Provo, UT- she’s so famous she’s practically bi-coastal!
Diana is a natural light photographer. She says, “A session with me is not an uncomfortable attempt for your family to pose and try to look 'just so' for the camera, it’s an experience where I have the chance to get to know you a little bit, we have fun, and in the end you walk away with a professional product that captured it all.”
Yan Photography specializes in Children/Newborn, Family, Wedding and Engagement Portraits!

I'm so in love with Yan Photography! I told Diana I was going to pick 2-4 pictures to post in the giveaway and clearly I have no self restraint. They're all too beautiful! I honestly believe we've got the 2 best photographers EVER here on KCL. If you want studio portraits, go see Ashley at The Children's Studio, and if natural light is your thing- Yan is bar none the best I've seen!
I’m so excited for the winner of this package!

She (or he) will receive the whole kit and caboodle:
A 1-2 hour session
(2 hours?! That's unheard of!)

at a location you and Yan decide on together.
Plus at least 20 high resolution digital files of your images (Whoa!)
And a 5x7 Print of Each! In total a $675 Value!!

To Enter this Giveaway leave a comment and tell Diana why you love her work!

Oh my goodness! What a great giveaway!

My favorite thing about the portraits is the natural poses--I dislike stiff poses and I always notice when a photographer captures a person or family being natural.

Martha said...

I love how great she captures children at their finest! I hope i win!!!

Tia said...

I just love the pictures of the kids you can tell that they are not being posed and they don't have fake smiles. So cute.

Carol said...

The photographs are beautiful...I hope I win!

Rebecca said...

Photo's are priceless! This is a very fun giveaway!

The Barkers said...

I was just talking to my husband about getting family pictures done!
I like how they aren't so staged. You can never get kids,including mine,(I have two)to do what you WANT them to do. It looks like you can make an amazing picture out of whatever mood they want to give you! I'm so excited!

andrea. said...

anngardner said...

My jaw dropped when I saw your work. I have worked in the photo buisiness, and have never seen work with the clarity that I see in your work. It is amazing.

Jared and Marilou said...

LOVE those pictures! I love most that it isn't completely posed.

Jared and Marilou said...

I just added KCL to my Google Reader

Jared and Marilou said...

just commented on her blog! I want this bad!

Alana said...

I like her photography because she specializes only in things that matter... children, family, weddings etc. I love her creative pics, not the usual studio types.

Ever notice how you remember things that you have a photo of? A great photo hanging on the wall can make great relationships even stronger. Our house burned to the ground a little over a year ago and I lost ALL my pictures. I would love to have a professional family picture! My walls and photo albums are bare!

I love KCL!!

Dustin, Shondel and Laila said...

I love her photos and the naturalness of them. They are not all posy-posy. I'm making up words now, but I do love her work!
