DUDE! I love this! What would I like to capture??? ummm. ME. Yep. Me. I am in so little photos I need to remember to just hold out my arm during the day or something! :) thanks Tam! you rock!

Danielle Nielsen said...

I want to capture every second of my boys, age 6 and 3, moments. They are growing and changing way to quickly. On a side note, I named my photography business Captures Life. Because that's what I aim to do for each client, one photo at a time. :)

Jessica Swatts said...

I want to capture this moment right now, when my dream of being a professional photographer is starting to take root, and to forever cherish every person in my life who has helped it grow with their never-ending support and love.

Michelle said...

I want to capture my zeel again. Being an adult has robbed me of some of my spunk. I'm aiming to re capture it. Love the necklace! :)

Tiffany said...

I want to capture my 10-month-old daughter's chubby thighs. They are absolutely adorable and I know they will all but vanish the second she starts to crawl. I find myself taking pictures of her from the waist down so that I can remember her sweet chubbiness! :-)

I want to capture the every day moments with my kids.
Now that they are in school those moments are rarer.

Lisa said...

I want to recapture the day before my husband left for Iraq:( Just forget he was leaving and just treasure each moment!

The Allans said...

Tami, What a great contest, with such a great prize. I would love to have the 'real' small moments captured. The candid shots, no poses, the small things, the little expressions that every mom loves, and the interaction of the family as if there were no camera there to worry about. Those are the memories that remind us of what life is really about.

I would love to capture every moment with my 5 month old babygirl {Elora}. She has changed my life in so many ways, for the better. I can't imagine my life without her and she brings me so much inspiration=)

WOW! I LOVE that necklace!I want to capture my family, I have been so blessed, I love getting great candid photos of them when their personalities are just gushing through! They are so amazing. I am again...very very blessed!!!

Shutter Bug said...

With my photography I want to capture those less fortunate from everyone else and hopefully open up the eyes of others and to what is going on in our nation. (Much like Dorothea Lange)

Rachel Christie said...

Oh, I love this! I guess I would say that I want to capture each and every second of my children being small. Each and every little smile and the pitter patter of their feet. Our life is crazy with four kids, the youngest two being 3 year old twin boys, and it seems like just yesterday I was holding them...so tiny. I've since started my photography business and am in the process of growing it now. So....I want to capture my babies...and I want to help capture moments for others as well. I know how fast they change and how time flies. It's my dream...and it's coming true :)

Lucy said...

I would love to capture my life, the way it is flying by, between my business, my study, and my family, there just isn't enough time to capture everything anymore!

I want to capture the small moments with my son. Like when he is in my arms and tucks his head under my chin when he is tired.

Darlene said...

Nina said...

What an adorable necklace!

I'd love to capture the budding brotherly relationship between my 2 boys who are 2.5 and newly turned 1 year old. It is amazing to see them each grow into their own person and yet also developing a bond with each other that I hope will always grow strong and deep.

I am in love with this necklace!!! Great giveaway, Tami! I am obsessed with capturing nature - and I seem even more obsessed with doing it close-up! I want to capture the pollen on a sunflower leaf, the bee poking his head into the blossom, the veins on the snapdragon bloom.... I just want to capture it all over and over again!!! Thank you!

I would LOVE to capture every single moment of every single day of my husband, children (which also include my daughter and son-in-law), grandchildren, and of course my granddog. I am enjoying this time in my life and I don't want to miss a moment in the lives of the people who are so near and dear to me. LYG, N

Rebeca said...

Wow, awesome giveaway. I want to capture, how we live now, those runny noses, dirt under the fingernails, ketchup all over that mouth, the silly giggles, the bedhair, the tantrums in the store, everything that makes us who we are.

Teresa said...

I want to capture my husband playing Mario- such a rarity in his workaholic life.

I need to capture the pictures of my nieces and nephews that my sisters don't take the time to.

Regardless of the winner, thank you for the reminder to freeze the little moments. :)

jen said...

Oooh I WANT THIS BAD¡¡ I want to capture the moments that will fade all to quickly...my baby's firsts, my oldest's freckles, my 3 year olds dimpled hands and my 5 year-olds lego towers. :)

Liz  said...

I love this necklace!
I love to capture all the small moments and big moments in my girls day to day activities. I have also made it a habit to grab my camera when they have made a gigantic mess with something, it always helps to keep my frustration in check and the pictures are priceless.

Rebecca said...

I want to capture the next year or so when it's still my husband and me without kiddos. Our focus will shift so much then, that I want to be sure we're enjoying our current now. :)

Bailey said...

I love to capture the details. Muddy boots, toddler's knuckle dimples, Newborn lips, tiny toes, you get it right?

I found your blog through Lindsey's blog and you are added to my reader! Love your work!

Kristine said...

I want to capture the wonderful caring and joyful relationship between my two children!

Kelly Williams said...

I love this necklace... it's perfect and adorable! I would love to capture my husband and I as we are right now. I'm a photographer and have several photographer friends who would take portraits of us, but our self-consciousness stands in the way. I wish for once, we'd be comfortable with who we are and take that risk. E-mail: thebondbetweenus(at)gmail(dot)com

Jenna said...

Love this necklace! I want to capture the small things my kids do on a day to day basis to make me smile which I too often forget about. I want to remember these days before my 5 year old goes off to Kindergarten where all three are at home safe with me.

Jackie said...

Yo Tami! How cool is this? I love Cinnamon sticks, and this necklace is SOOOOOO perfect. I want to capture my passion and wear it on my sleeve:) Sometimes, being the photographer, I can get caught up in daily life/work/everything else. I want to be reminded of why I spent the countless hours doing what I do... because it makes my clients {and myself} smile. Yeah contest! how fun!

erika said...

Love this necklace! I want to "capture" it around my neck! haha

Really I want to capture life's story through a lens! What a great opportunity it is to freeze moments in time forever with a photograph!

Sharna Wilkerson said...

I want to capture the ability to deal effectively with difficult people. Would make life so much easier.

janessa said...

I want to capture my little girl, my baby turned toddler and one day, she'll be a little girl, then a young lady....

I want to capture my FAMILY. I'm still in awe of the fact that I have a family of my own.

What a beautiful necklace!

Shannon Marie said...

I would love to get the same photos of my husband and our baby girl for me or all of us together. I have tons of photo albums with no pictures of myself in them.

Beautiful necklace...

Angie said...

Oh enjoy those pajama days! My oldest started kinder this year and I can't wait for summer, when we can live in our pj's again.

I love that necklace! And I'd have to say capturing my kids, not just in portraits and good light, but even in snapshots, is what I want to do the most. As much as I love photography, I love my kids more, and they're my inspiration. Ya know?!

Annie Landefeld said...

I wish I could capture my 8-month-old daughter's scent. You have taken the most beautiful pictures of her that I will treasure forever. Thank you. I just wish I could bottle up her sweetness...
