Oogle me? No! OOGLE YOU!

Listen up my lovelies!

As I’ve said I am never going to be a big review blogger or a big giveaway blogger….buuuuuuuuuut when Maya contacted me from Maya’s Eye Photography about doing some maternity shots and a giveaway shoot for my lovely readers? Well you know this {self admitted} camera whore said hell to the yeah!

So here’s the deal, while being a {self admitted} camera whore, since having The Boss I have to confess that I rarely like pictures of myself. But Maya honestly managed to take pictures of me that I not only don’t hate? I LOVE!

Maya was fun and funny and managed to make me feel less like a giant ball of baby and more like I was hanging out with a good girlfriend having a great time – that is to say she made me feel very comfortable and I wasn’t self concious at all! She is easy to work with…trust me on this. Having had a bajillion headshots taken over the years I know a good photographer is like a good doctor, they need great technical/artistic skill and also a great ‘bedside manner’.

Maya has them both. She’s quick and while she does set up shots, she also knows when to just grab her camera and shoot before she misses something great:

We shot in our {well, my in-laws} home, but Maya has a studio as well that she usually shoots in I’d love to see what she could do with The Boss in a studio setting!

She even grabbed TOTT and The Boss for a family shot:

She does it all, not just maternity shots. She is a whiz of newborn and children’s photos (Dear Maya, please come back again June for swoonworthy shots of The Boss with Baby2ElectricBooglaloo. Please), family shots, weddings, her manner makes you just relax and have a great time.

The Boss? Fell in love for ‘Miss Maya’ true story.

Now here’s where you get to be the model! If you live in the MD/NOVA/DC area (cause duh!) PLEASE enter to win a shoot with the lovely and talented Maya at her studio! She’ll include a free 5×7 and a free 8×10 and 2 free downloads of your choice. That’s huge guys. (plus she said she might be persuaded to provide low res watermarked extras for Facebook and such. So sweet talk her, people!)

Should you not win the giveaway, Maya has generously offered you, my lovely readers a $75 discount off her session fee if you shoot in April or May AND 40% off a storyboard or canvas from your shoot. People, you KNOW I love photos on canvas. I swoon. Make sure you mention MINKY when you book!

{I want this on canvas}

The rules are the usual here in blogland. All you have to do is visit Maya’s site to see her gorgeous portfolio and her blog out then come back and tell me whether you’d want a kid shoot (my favorite cause kids….always awesome), family,  or maternity! *** Extra entries for following this here blog, liking Maya on FACEBOOK following me on the twitter following the lovely MAYA on Twitter. Yet another extra entry for tweeting something like “I want to win this fabulous photoshoot by @MayasEyePhoto from @MinkyMoo http://dialmforminky.com/2011/03/oogle-me-no-oogle-you” (You can tweet that once a day until Monday!) Please leave a separate comment for each entry. The giveaway will go till MONDAY (Sunday @ midnight) when I will attempt to figure out random.org in order to pick a winner! (now if I can’t figure that out, which is quite possible) then I’ll be numbering bits of paper to match comments and letting The Boss pick one!

It’s very high tech, y’all.

p.s. I know the timing on this is high-larious given yesterdays post.
