Say WHAT?  Are we crazy?  The answer is YES!  We are crazy about our business and love to share what we do with families in Hampton Roads, Virginia!  I heard an ad on the radio yesterday from a car dealership that said: "I'd give them away, but my wife won't let me!" ...and we feel the same way!  We would love to give away sessions all the time if we could...unfortunately, we have bills to pay and mouths to feed.  :)

But you're in luck today because we are doing this HUGE PHOTOGRAPHY GIVEAWAY in honor of our 6th anniversary!!

6 years ago, Amanda took her first clients here at Kimberlin Gray Photography.  Since then, we have photographed hundreds of families and have truly enjoyed every moment.  We have added to our team over the past few years - Abby, our office manager and Tina, our creative visionary - to bring you a full-service studio for all your family's photographic needs.

We want to include both our former clients (who have been so good to us!) and also give opportunities for us to reach NEW families too.  So we are giving away TWO FULL SESSIONS - one as a thank you for a former client and one for a new client to experience a session with us!


What’s included in the giveaway?

  • Your session fee for any session we offer (excluding birth photography)
  • Access to all our amazing props, gowns, etc.
  • Detailed post production and editing of final images
  • A minimum of 20 beautiful high resolution digital images on USB drive with print release
  • In-person proofing/ordering session at our studio to see our prints, frames, and specialty items with discounted prices on those items

Winner Winner, Chicken Dinner! | Virginia Beach Family Minisessions

Wow, wow, WOW!  I was blown away at the quality of entries for this contest.  When I saw a section on my Facebook page called 'Recommendations', I was excited.  But then I realized that nobody must have seen it because I didn't have any recommendations listed!  So, I thought, what better way to get some than to ask....and why not just make it a fun contest while we're at it?! :D

I received 26 entries.  And even though that is a small drop in the bucket of clients I have served over the past three years, when I sat down to read them all, I was blown away.  Are they talking about me???  If you could have seen me reading them, you would have seen a HUGE smile on my face, my hand over my heart, and my eyes just about bugging out of my head.  Seriously - some of the most amazing compliments I have ever read.  Thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart to each and every person who took the time to type out your experience with Kimberlin Gray Photography.  Referrals are the lifeblood of my business.  If I were to estimate, I would say that about  60-75% of my business comes from those of you who share my work and your experience at KGP with your friends and family and coworkers.  It truly means the world to me.  And my ego is bigger today.  For realz.

So, without further ado - the WINNER of a July Family Mini-Session is review #18 - Leslie Shay Riffle!!!  Congrats, Shay!  Can't wait to photograph your family again!!
