"I love this one in particular, not only because you take a  beautiful pic, but because it totally encapsulates my girls and their sweet, funny, loving, happy, best-pal relationship with each other at this point in their lives (6 and 4).  It's a shot already in their albums and one I hope they'll cherish when they're older and still have such a loving relationship."


Secondary Prize A:  Aimee W.

 $100 Gift Certificate towards a full one-hour Portrait Session fee in 2015 with Liisa Sefton Images.***

"Although we didn't have this printed, it's my favourite from this year.  I love that it is very similar to the one you took of Honor in the first year (at 11 months old), but she looks so grown up here."


Secondary Prize C: Amy M.

Your favourite image entry printed as a 16x20 wall print.

Amy wrote:

"We have photos from our wedding that we like, but that was nearly 14 years ago!  I look at this image and I think of how much we have changed since then, and how fortunate we are that we have grown together".





Thank you for entering! 

All other entries will receive a code for 20% off their next product purchase with Liisa Sefton Images.

A few of your comments:

"You do such amazing work and I cherish the photos, freeze in time such a busy stage in our life."

"The one where Caiden is laughing out loud. I am not exaggerating when I say we have NO pictures on our wall with Caiden smiling. She always looks sullen or coy in photos...never happy! I'm not sure how you did it, but this photo makes me smile too!"

"It is nice how there are different elements to the photo with the beautiful wood reindeer in the background with the red bows.  We have this photo in a frame in our kitchen so we can look at it everyday."


"I love this photo because you have managed to capture a "real" smile for all of us."

"I love how all of us are in it, including Bauer but what makes it amazing is the way it seems like you somehow picked us up and perfectly placed us in the beautiful backdrop."

"This photo is just SO HIM! I love that even though he doesn't really know you, he seems to be so natural in the photos that you take of him."

"We loe this picture in particular it encompasses our small family right now!!  Such a perfect image! It was so hard to pick just one!!! Can't wait to grow our famuly and get it all captured by you!"

"...such a wonderful happy moment captured and makes me think of me and my boys in the future."
