Becky, Becky, Becky, Can I win? Thank you for this beautiful post about my Mom's Birthday. If I win I would like every picture in this post. Do I have to pick one? Love, Nikita

I posted on my FB wall and on the wall of a photography forum/FB group I'm in. :)

I sooo want this! i still haven't made any print orders, my walls are empty : (

Gosh.... gigantosaurus canvas print? I think it would have to be one of the enormous sailfish that my boy and hubby caught a few weeks ago. I'm pretty sure that hubby would be THRILLED to have a canvas print of that for his birthday at the end of the month. :<) And I honestly think it's kind of crazy that this is your first giveaway; I would think that LOTS of folks would want to be featured on your blog. But this is a great one to have for a first, for sure! xoxox...

16x20 is huge! however, I am finally getting around to redoing (or actually, doing) our bedroom and can think of a few pictures that I'd hang right over the headboard. maybe one of the girls? maybe a huge big flower? I'd have to figure that one out :)

Jennifer @ Studio JRU said...

What a beautiful happy post. Love the great photos... as always Becky. I love how you can capture joy! :) A big canvas print! How neat is that!?! I don't know what picture I would use. It would probably take me days to go through and pick a favorite! lol

Jennifer @ Studio JRU said...

I like UPrinting on facebook! :)

Kayce said...

Fabulous first giveaway!! If I had to choose one picture it would be tough! With three beautiful children I'd have to try to wrangle them all up for a quick snap and that would have to be it...now how to get one teen, one almost 20 year old and a toddler together all at once?? Thank you for the opportunity to win!

I'm off to share your post on FB and like UPrinting! :)

Brian Miller said...

these are some really fun pictures....love the smiles...50, thats the new 30 right?

Becca said...

What a great giveaway my friend! :-) I really have been wanting a canvas with a picture of our whole family together. There was a while there where I was afraid I would never even get to take that picture . . . and I really want to remember God's faithfulness and how He has healed Caden and completed our family :-) (ps - I LOVE your pictures in this post!)

Katie said...

Oh, how exciting!! I would probably get my Take Me Out to the Ballgame shot printed.

....fingers crossed....and off to check out Uprinting!

http://sdanddoublee.blogspot.com/2011/09/reason-mama-and-son.html

it's the first photo in the post... taken by a blogger friend of mine who visited chicago from minnesota a couple weeks ago. she took this beautiful photo while i was nursing my son. i so want to have a canvas print of it hanging on my wall, as it is so special to me.

off to follow uprinting on twitter now. and i will tweet about the giveaway, too!

georgia b. said...

looks like such a great party!

Jen Mahoney said...

What a lovely party, no way is she 50! If I won, I would print one of the family photos we just had done this summer. How fun!

Drew said...

Love the pictures, Becky! If I won, I think I would dress Jordyn in colors to match her room. Then I'd try to come up with some kind of creative pose. I really want to try to make her room pretty and personalized. I need your help! :) (Not necessarily in winning the canvas, although that would be nice, but in having you come to Ohio and fix all my decorating disasters.)

Wanda said...

Great pictures of a fun birthday batch. What fun you must have.

I.LOVE.THIS.POST! Such a beautiful family, and you captured the fun and love so well! I could look at these over and over. I feel like I was right there at the party. You are inspiring!

What an amazing giveaway! I would pick a fall pic I have of the kids on the farm to print, I think. I've been dying to get some canvas prints on our walls.

I'd love to have a canvas of Chloe! Great giveaway! :)

Charlotte @ Cowgirl Clippings said...

I would like a canvas of my profile picture. I love the colors. On a side note, the 50th looks like such a fun party.

TechnoBabe said...

She is a beautiful woman and does not look fifty. Very nice photos. I really like all the hair thingys, barrettes, clips, beads and all. The ribs look so good I will be getting some this week.

Skeller said...

does it get any better than this? good friends + good food + laughter + love + a to-die-for tie-dyed dress? + the amazing-Becky to photograph the whole affair?? what a great way to celebrate turning 50!!

leemeandthegirls said...

We JUST had new family pictures made...oh, the possibilities! :)

Buckeroomama said...

I love the joy and love you captured. You are one of my favorite photographers at doing that. :)

Oh, I would dearly love a canvas print; I'd make it a collage featuring J & Z! (Psst... I do have a US address.) =)

genderist said...

I'd love to print one of our family shots on a canvas. That would be awesome.

kelly said...

I love every one of the photos in this post!! Especially the dancing in the streets. :)
If I won a canvas, I'd print the photo I took of a door (at the end of this post...http://www.chasinghugo.com/blog/2011/5/17/smoothies-at-the-cemetery.html). It's the first photo I took that people actually asked to have a copy of or offered to buy from me!

Tamar SB said...

I love me some Philly faces! Such smiles! Hmmm I would canvas up one of my awesome still life pics or of course, Noam, as a gift to my sister!

Teri said...

Love the b-day pics!

I would make a picture of my kids!!

Jim said...

Being Canadian, I don't qualify but that is OK good luck to you all!
Becky, 50 never looked so good! I just LOVE how you are able to capture facial expressions like no one else!
Got over the grumps? It's good to have them every now and then you know.

Tracy P. said...

Wow! What a beautiful story of a wonderful celebration. I would hate to even BEGIN to try to pick a photo, so I hope Nikita wins! I really, really do. :-)

Flower Patch Farmgirl said...

I've always loved the look of these! Sign me UP.

Farmgirl Paints said...

Okay those were fabulous! Seriously you captured some great times with that family. I would love to have a picture of Little Chick sipping a slushy from our Hawaii pics. She just looks so darn cute. It would look adorable in her room. Have a great weekend girlie.

Lisa said...

Wow! your in the big time now Beck! so cool. :) Great pictures of such a happy time. I love your photos of families and happy children.

I would love the prize...what would I want on it? ~ simple ~ It's a picture I took of a cross my father made when he was a teenager. He trained to be a sheet metal worker as a kid when he was kicked out of school in Boston many, many years ago... The man in charge of the project let all the kids sign their names on the cross so their marks would be there forever. The cross sits on top of Boston College High School:) Now that my father has passed away...two years ago now...still hard to believe... I love the picture I took last summer. My father was so proud of this cross and he went back to school and went to work for Kennedy Space center as an engineer and then he became an architect and designed beautiful houses in the South. Sigh...I miss him so much.

much love Becky! who ever wins will be happy I know.

xoxo

Sue said...

Second- awesome giveaway. I am thinking I would love a canvas of one of fall leaf shots I captured this past weekend.

Sarah said...

I would love to win a big canvas! I would probably use a picture of my three kids -- or maybe my new puppy :) Either way, what a great giveaway!!

Great giveaway. I would have a family portrait printed if I won.

Natalia said...

I'd probably get a picture of my baby printed for my office

Dianne - Bunny Trails said...

Those are fantastic pictures. It looks like such a fun and wonderful day. If I won, I'd have to get a new image of my boys (16 & 17). Hard to believe they're that old already. Goodness. Terrific giveaway, though. I love canvases.

Busy~Bee Suz said...

What a wonderful celebration...sure wish I could have enjoyed some of the food too. :)
I need a big canvas photo of my washer/dryer. Cause I love them so much. LOL.

Kelly said...

I would love a big photo of my kids. I don't have a single framed photo of the two of them together!

These Three Kings said...

OMG!! Love all of these pics! I cant imagine having a pic that big in my house! Def. would love a photo of my family and some of the kids in our neighborhood on the wall in my family room. I've been asking my hubbie for that for over a year now. Why? I want to see the reminder everyday how the LORD is ALWAYS found amongst the least of these, orphans, and fatherless.
thanks for this amazing opportunity. I never win in such contest! LOL!

I will tweet this as well as like on Facebook :)

Stasha said...

Very exciting. First of all nobody looks a day over 30 in those photos, it must be a typo? As for the giveaway, what fun! I would have a family photo printed, for sure!

Debbie D. said...

Love this blog and all it always offers.
If I won, there is a lovely engagement photo of a young friend that I would have made for a wedding gift!

photowannabe said...

These photos are pure joy and happiness. Terrific capture of celebration.
I would love to have a canvas print of just about anything but if I have to choose, maybe the Fall scene by the river that's posted on my ABC Wednesday this week.

Such a great giveaway! I would make a canvas if Levi in his modeling pose!

Maddy said...

Sorry I'm a little late to the giveaway, but better late than never :) I would love to make one of Greece trip photos into a canvas. It was an experience of a lifetime and one I hope to never forget :)

Amber said...

I would love to win! My husband and I just moved into our first house and our walls are empty! I would do one of either our wedding or honeymoon! :)

Anita Johnson said...

I'd love to print a photo of my family, now completed with the addition of my new daughter in law!
