DMP’s 1-Year Anniversary Giveaway! {Guelph photographer}



It has been one year since I registered my company name and officially “opened for business.”  This past year has been a whirlwind and has taught me a lot – about myself, about being a photographer, and about running a business.  I am so grateful for the support that my husband, family, and friends have given me.  I am also truly blessed to have had the opportunity to work with  so many wonderful families this past year, and feel utterly privileged that I was chosen to capture some special moments for them and hope that these images will be treasured for years to come.  This pursuit has also given me the opportunity to connect with a lot of very talented and inspiring people – vendors and photographers alike.  Without all of these people, I would not have had the courage to begin this journey, and wouldn’t be where I am today.  I feel so fulfilled to have such a rewarding job, and one that I thoroughly enjoy.

So…to mark this 1-year in business milestone, and to thank everyone that has been there for me along the way, I am hosting a giveaway!  I am extremely appreciative for the participation of the vendors and businesses involved….and I am so excited to share some wonderful talent with all of you!  I have had the opportunity to connect with and work with most of the participating vendors, and I can say from personal experience that the winners are going to LOVE their prizes!  I have had a very warm response from vendors in regards to my giveaway, and therefore there are multiple prizes to be won, which means multiple winners from this giveaway!  Check out the fabulous prizes below:
