Having a studio portrait session with your family is an investment — and Modern Life Portraits wants you to document your life as art! The winner of this giveaway will receive beautiful images of their family life from a two-hour in-studio photo session and then Modern Life Images will help them  figure out what to do with those images.  They specialize in custom wall design and framing products (hence the gorgeous 11″ by 14″ image of your choice mounted on a box frame!).



ABOUT OUR SPONSOR: Modern Life Portraits

Mary Gardella is a Baltimore mom of two that has been documenting life stories for over 30 years, beginning as a photojournalist for publications all over the country. Her vision for documenting Families, Couples, & Teens  came from her journalistic roots of capturing real moments and emotion.  She celebrates Modern Life by simply making it fun, stress free and keeping it real.

Modern Life Portraits was created to bring a style that is simple, comfortable, and real.  The unscripted approach to photography allows your true essence to come to life in front of the camera.  That is the art in life.

Modern Life Portraits is housed in a gorgeous & spacious natural light studio at the Historic Clipper Mill facility in Baltimore.  Both the studio and surrounding grounds lend themselves to the varying personalities and styles that walk through its doors.

Super simple! Just fill out this online form to enter.  You have until midnight on December 11th to enter. We’ll announce our winner on December 12th!

Open to US residents within driving distance of Baltimore. Only one entry per person for the studio portrait session + mounted box frame giveaway. We’ll be giving away another (cool) item tomorrow. To be considered for that giveaway, you must complete the giveaway form associated with it. {In other words, come back tomorrow, see what we’re giving away and enter that giveaway, too!}
