Crystal Clear Photography with giveaway **Closed**


I love taking pictures of my kids and I have a big wall of photos in my living room of all my favorite photos of my kids and Kris and I. When I look up at that wall I have pictures of when Brandon was 2 weeks old, our wedding day and some cute ones of one or both kids. Most of the pictures up there though are taken by professional photographers.
That's because professionals always can do it a bit, or a lot, better than we can. They just seem to have an eye for where a good shot would be and how it will turn out in the end. They have the proper equipment and know all the tips and tricks in using it properly. They also have the photo software for touching up and brightening photos. And whatever else they do that we have no idea about :)
When I was going to meet Crystal from Crystal Clear Phototgraphy I had no idea what to expect. She just said to meet her at the library and that there were some cool walls around the area and we could just walk around and see what would work. Kris suggested that I put the kids in jeans and cowboy boots and so I just threw brown hoodies on them both.

From my angle, not behind the lens, I thought the pictures would turn out pretty good but had no idea how good. You just don't know how they will turn out unless you have some artistic ability and are behind the lens.
The pictures were amazing. I was so happy when I got to see them online, the same night as the photos were taken! I got the prints today and was blown away all over again. She had them printed on metallic paper which I wasn't so sure about but wow! They are hard to describe but have a shine to them and look very cool with the sunlight shining on them! I am going to get more frames today to make room on the family wall.

These are photos that your whole family will want copies of. They can order them off of the online album on Crystals site and can be paid for via pay pal! I have to say that these are some of the cheapest professional photography prints I have yet to see. I got the photo session and 2 retouched 8x10's (a value of $125) and ordered another 8x10. My mom even ordered some too! I can't say enough about Crystal and Crystal Clear Photography. Everyone who has seen the prints loves them. My girlfriend is even going to book some photos with Crystal!
If you want some photos done you better book soon as I am sure that will be booking up fast in no time at all!

Crystal has offered one of my local winners the same package I got. A photo session and 2 retouched 8x10's (a value of $125.) The only thing is you need to be in the Comox Valley or be willing to travel here for the photo shoot! This can be for you, your kids, your family etc.
