  • Janna harris - the timing couldn’t be better to have this opportunity if I were to win! I’ve been working to start a fitness blog based on my desire to make fitness affordable, accessible and approachable for all women. Shooting with you would add the professional, polished touch I need! Fitness photos that are fun and functional are hard to get but I know this would be a great shoot! Fingers crossed :)ReplyCancel

  • LoudPen - This is an amazing giveaway! I’ve worked with Megan before and she is truly talented. I was reluctant to do style blogging because there are so many style bloggers and I wanted to work with a photographer instead of shooting my own photos. After a google search I found Megan and connected with her. She’s shot Pen.Style which are fashion & lifestyle editorials published on my online magazine de la Pen…All Pen Everything.

    Megan is so easy to work with, she makes you feel comfortable. She makes great suggestions for poses and understands lighting and location! These are key factors because if you’re uncomfortable at a shoot it will reflect in your confidence and your ability to take a good photo. Lighting and location are important too because you want good lighting to show off your outfits and a great location that will enhance pictures. Megan gets all that! I can’t say enough great things about her. ;)ReplyCancel

  • Elaine - great giveaway idea! I’m a Dallas real estate agent w a fancy little blog. I’m one of the first realtors in the area to have a personality, lol. So this would be lots of fun for both of us! Congrats to whomever wins!ReplyCancel

  • Tiffany @ ArtSea Chic - This is such a generous giveaway Megan :) As a coastal lifestyle inspiration blogger here in DFW, I’d love to use the shoot to have some fun showcasing how you can feel like you’re living a coastal lifestyle even if you don’t live by the coast! No coast within 25 miles of Dallas – but there are plenty of ways to feel like you just walked off the beach and don’t have a worry in your mind.
    The photos would be a fantastic contribution to my blog’s brand experience and give a better depiction of what ArtSea Chic is all about!!ReplyCancel

  • Brittany Knight - Happy birthday, sweet Megan!!! And what a generous gift…!! I would love to have some updated imagery for my blog. The three pictures I’ve used throughout my branding are from my engagement session in 2013. I’d like to have some more carefree images that better fit my brand’s lifestyle and mission in faith. I’d love to let you have free artistic reign to make these a perfect artistic fit to add to your portfolio!ReplyCancel

  • Mai Lyn - Happy Jan Birthday Megan! I would really love some active or fitness imagery on the blog. I’m a total novice when it comes to photography.ReplyCancel

  • Jule - thank you for your generous Birthday photo shoot offer! I am a mind-body psychotherapist and Nia conscious movement facilitator & trainer.

  • Wit & Wander - I would love to win this shoot! I am a mommy blogger based in North Dallas and I have never had the courage to get professional head shots taken. (Never mind the fact that I am more often covered in spit up than make up!) I would so love the opportunity to be vulnerable and feel beautiful for an afternoon. Thank you for offering such a unique opportunity to local bloggers – what you do (making women feel confident and beautiful) is truly a gift.ReplyCancel

  • Jayda - You have been so sweet to me since I discovered your photography blog when I first created my own style blog! I would love to have the opportunity to meet and shoot with you. Your photos are awesome and I think you really know how to capture details! And you make it look so effortless! By the way, this is an awesome thing you’re doing! Especially considering it’s your birthday :)

    xo, JaydaReplyCancel

  • Hannah - Megan, I love receiving your tips to my email and improving my blog! I would be stoked to win because I’ve had my blog for two years and I need better photography. My boyfriend does the best he can, but the images aren’t what I need them to be to attract an audience. I also have the drive and entrepreneurship to turn my blog in to a business. As a merchandising major at UNT, I have the ability to reach many style followers. This isn’t something I randomly do, I put a lot of time and money in to my blog, I’d like to see that pay off soon. You’re success has motivated me to reach towards my blogging goals. I’d love to work with you!

    P.S. I am in Dallas
