Giveaway: Tell me your snow stories

Me, early into the snowstorm yesterday
I hope everyone is cozy, warm and preferably holding a hot chocolate after the crazy snow storm yesterday! 

New York is the first place I lived with a real Winter and I never check weather forecasts (unless I am doing a shoot)... so I was completely surprised and jumping with  excitement when I saw yesterdays madness. (In retrospect, I am so sorry for those of you who missed your flights and trains or who were inconvenienced in some other way!)

So I thought that to celebrate (or make up for :-)) the snowpocalypse that we have just gone through, I am doing a quick giveaway. Here is how it goes: share a snow memory with me. It can be a story from your childhood, a picture of you in the snow, a story you read/ saw that was meaningful to you or anything where snow was a part of it. To participate, just add your story to the comments on this post or reply to me @anandalima on twitter by this Sunday (1/2/11). I will randomly select one of the responses (not just the cleverest :-)), which will win a mini-portrait session with me in the new year (great for baby, pregnancy or engagement announcements... or a mini-boudoir!).

Can't wait to see your stories!

Update: I just remembered that you can't post pictures straight here on the comments or on twitter. If you want to share a picture, just post it on my Facebook page and then post the link on the comments here or on twitter.... and if you post both a picture and a story, it counts as two entries! (why not, hey? :-))

Ky and Pedro's Moving In Engagement Shoot

I am always very excited for my engagement shoots, but I ask my clients to pardon me if I say that I was extra excited about this one.

A few weeks ago, I went to Colorado to visit my brother, Pedro, and got to meet his then girlfriend, Kylene. I had a really wonderful time and it was lovely to see that Ky and her family were not only gorgeous but really wonderful people... and my brother was so happy!

Kylene and Pedro were about to move in together, so at some point I casually said: "hey, why don't we do a moving in photoshoot, for kicks?". Unbeknownst to Ky, it was all part of a plan. Pedro was already planning to propose to her on her birthday (today!)... so the pictures (which she just got) were meant to be their engagement pictures!

I am so very excited to share that Pedro has just proposed to Kylene and she said 'yes'!!!

Congratulations on your engagement, Ky and Pedro!!! ... and happy birthday, Ky!
