Sadly the start of this year was pretty hideous for my family & I when we lost our amazing Mum. She was a total legend, my biggest fan and the first person to put me back into line when she thought I was wrong. We had a short time to come to terms with the fact she had cancer which had spread from her ovaries and into her brain. I guess if there was any good to come out of it – we got a chance to say good-bye. We said I love you and be together as a family one last time. We lost our Dad suddenly 9 year before so this was another heartache for us all to endure. Mum passed away peacefully and I was lucky enough to be there when she did. I still can’t believe she has gone.
So fast forward a month to today and I am struggling to find the motivation to get back into work. I lost a lot of work over the 5 weeks I was away. I had to cancel a few weddings and newborns sessions and I worry that the damage might be huge for the rest of the year (I work on word of mouth). So to kick start my year I thought I would do a giveaway. My Mum told us to always be kind and to do what you love. So a giveaway is a combination of both!
I will be giving away not one but two sessions in my Bli Bli studio, which has been done up and looking very fresh and pretty. The two sessions in the giveaway are a newborn session or a baby or maternity these include the digital files. All you have to do to be in the running to win is head on over to Instagram, and complete the following:
- follow my Instagram account (linzierussophoto)
- follow me on facebook (linzierussofacebook)
upload either an image of your baby OR your favourite image of mine, including the hashtag “#linzierussogiveaway” and a description of why you want to win; and
tag three of your friends in your comments.
The competition closes midnight on the 21st of March 2018.
Entries are open those who are currently pregnant or who have a baby less than six months of age. Newborn sessions are for babies aged 7 – 14 days and only one entry per person permitted.
