Celebrate Survivors’ Photography Session Contest

In Honor of Breast Cancer Awareness

 

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. As part of our quest to support women’s issues, Images by Kay & Co. Photography is excited to announce our complimentary, first Annual Breast Cancer Survivors’ CelebrateSexy Photo Session Contest.

Having any kind of cancer is frightening and confusing; but breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed among U.S. Women.

Research shows us that the impact of breast cancer can be minimized with accurate information. As an all female team we are committed to supporting this cause and proud to be providing Arizona women a place to be photographed in a way that builds confidence about their bodies once again. The pampering that occurs during a CelebrateSexy photo session helps ease feelings of vulnerability. After surviving such a serious health challenge, women sometimes feel betrayed by their bodies. The beautiful photographs from the session help to bridge that gap, building peace and self-assurance.

Images by Kay & Co. Photography will hold a contest during the last two weeks of October for cancer survivors. If you or any woman you know has been affected by cancer, please consider entering our contest to win a FREE CelebrateSexy Diva Photography Package. Entering the contest is easy, simply send us your survival story along with one or two photos of you and we will post the entries on our blog. Then you, the readers, will choose the contest winner based on the person receiving the most number of votes. The winner will receive a Designer Diva Package and will be treated to professional hair styling and makeup application during her CelebrateSexy session. The images in her album will be a wonderful reminder and celebration of her beauty.

Anyone with a cancer survival story is a true winner – all finalists will receive a gift certificate toward a CelebrateSexy photography session. In addition, Images by Kay & Co. will contribute a portion of each CelebrateSexy session in October towards breast cancer research. Please join us in our support of breast cancer research by donating to this important cause.

To enter the contest:

This contest is for any woman who has survived or is fighting cancer in any form.

Please email your story to jamie@imagesbykay.com with the subject line: SURVIVOR CONTEST. Send a picture of yourself and any other photos you would like to share.

Your first name and images will be posted on our CelebrateSexy and Images by Kay & Co. Blog for our readers to view and vote on.

Feel free to nominate a deserving friend – just please ask their permission first and send us their contact information so that we can get their confirmation.

We will be accepting entries until October 31, 2010.

Viewers can cast their votes through November 13th and the winner will be announced on November 14th.

Good luck and we look forward to hearing your amazing stories!

I just found the coolest store at Scottsdale Fashion Square and it’s called Charming Charlies. It’s near the Barney’s entrance on the third floor and it’s fabulous! Great selections, great prices and everything is organized by color so it makes shopping for accessories super easy. I picked up a great multiple strand of pearls that are going to be super fun to use in our next CelebrateSexy session. It’s definitly worth a trip to the mall!

sexytanning01 199x300 Tanning Made Safe & EasyI have met the most amazing woman who owns the coolest company . . . Holly Larsen of Naked Beauty. It’s a safe, easy and affordable way to get a great tan without the harmful UV rays that our Arizona sun blasts us with or worse . . . those ‘fake-bake’ tanning beds!!! Here’s a post from her blog so you can learn more about it. http://nbtanning.com/blog/tan-of-the-rich-famous-comes-to-arizona/ . I’ve experienced the process myself and it was easy, fun and I looked amazing when it was finished (total process took about 15 minutes!!!!). Holly’s team is friendly, professional and very knowledgeable and I left feeling not only ‘tanner’ but also excited to have made a connection with a great business woman. She has awesome tanning pricing options and I highly recommend  that you check out her website http://nbtanning.com/  then call for an appointment and go experience it for yourself. AND a trip to Naked Beauty prior to your CelebrateSexy session will give you the extra ‘glow’ you’ll love for your portraits!

 I’ve included some images I took while I was there so you can see for yourself what a cool place it is and to show you the results in a few ‘before and after’ pictures. These images are not adjusted or retouched so you can really see the difference ‘after’ the session.
