1 Year Later

Its hard to believe that today is my 1 year Etsy-versary!  What an amazing year it has been.  I have made some great friends, founds some amazing shops, found a wonderful group of female photographers (fPOE) to are an amazing support system.   I can't thank everyone enough for all they have done for me this year! 

Now we are onto year two!  I can't wait to see what this next year will be like! 

I hope to get myself into the local market more.  I will be hanging my work at a Coffee Shop/Pub in downtown Denver this July.  I might also look into doing an art gallery again and possibly hanging my photography in a friends bakery (mmmm, cupcakes!!).

I also just drew a winning number for my blog giveaway down below.  I used the random number generator site and the winner was:

A Blog Giveaway!!

My 1yr Etsy-versary is only a week away.  Its hard to believe that I started this amazing journey a year ago!  I have had the most wonderful support of friends and family and my customers have been the BEST!  I still have to pinch myself that there are people who love my photos as much as I and want it in their homes!  This last year has been a dream come true!  I truly love this job and everything that goes with it!  I hope this next year I keep on growing in my business and photography.  I can't wait to see what this next year will bring!

So to celebrate my first year on Etsy and to thank everyone, I am doing a Giveaway!!  The giveaway is for any 8x8 or 8x10 of your choice from my shop. The giveaway will be open until Monday night (Jan 25th).  I will then pick winner via a random number generator and the winner will be announced Tuesday morning (Jan 26th).  All you have to do is go to my shop at ameliakayphotograph.etsy.com and pick out which print you would want to win.  Leave a comment on my blog as to which print you would want and also leave your first name and e-mail address so I can contact you if you win.  All prints can be made as either a 8x8 or 8x10 even if they are not listed as that size in my shop! Please, only one entry per person.

Also, this weekend I will be doing a Buy 1, Get 1 Free Print sale for any size print up to 11x14.  It will  start on Friday and end Sunday night!

Thank you so much to all my friends, family and customers for being such a huge part of this past year.  I couldn't have done it w/o you!!

I'm still here!

Its been pretty quiet around here for the last week huh?!?!   But, I am still here!  :)

I spent the weekend working on all kinds of new prints for my shop.  I have been slowly adding them to my shop.  I also added 10 new photo magnets as well.  My shop is busting at its seams! 

We have been spending the last week getting back into the swing of things.  My daughter finally went back to school from winter break and started back to dance class.   As much fun as it was for her to be in winter break, she is glad to be back in school with her friends.  I think she was getting sick of being home with me all the time.  LOL Why on earth would she feel like that?!?!!?  LOL

I have also been looking into getting my photography into local shops and restaurants.  I have contacted a few places around here, so hopefully something pans out!

Other than that, all is good!  Oh, and I am coming up on my 1yr Etsy Anniv.  If you are not a fan of my facebook page, become one so you can join in on a special and a giveaway I will be doing on there very soon.  http://www.facebook.com/ameliakayphotography .

The Coffee Shop pt 2

Happy New Year!!!  I hope that 2010 is off to a great start for everyone and  I hope that 2010 brings nothing but good things to all!!

Today, I worked more on my Coffee Shop series.  I have done one for today and have another one in mind that I will try to photograph later today as well.

The one above was a lot of fun to photograph.  I love how the out of focus lights look like the steam of a nice hot cup of coffee....or tea!
