My family inspires me, and the world around me. The beauty of it.

This sounds dumb I guess but music inspires me.

I became a follower on your site and on facebook.

I also made a post on my blog..

I hope to win too! We have zero family pictures with our baby (now one years old).

I love your pictures and I'm super jealous of your camera and skills.

Camille said...

What inspires me? A stranger's generosity and kindness, service, an unsolicited hug/kiss from my children, someone overcoming adversity and being a better person because of it, beautiful music and pictures!

I could go on, but those are a few things! Love your work, you are an amazing person and friend, thanks for everything!

PS - I did it all! Can't wait to hear about the winner, they are going to love your work!

My brother inspires me. He lost his only child four years ago and I truly didn't know if he would make it! Two days after the horrible event we as a family awoke to an empty brother anywhere...We thought the worst! We ran outside frantically looking for him and down the street we see a broken man pushing a lawnmower toward he got closer we realized it was him. We ran to him asking what he was doing..his response "my neighbor is dying of cancer and she needed help more than I did this morning." My only thought was how could she need more help than him at this moment...My brother quietly taught me the most valuable lesson that day...Service truly saves us as human beings! People who are in the depths of despair and can look for the needs of others inspires me!!! Thank you for letting me relate this experience and for reminding myself of this great lesson!

I did everything you asked to be entered in the drawing! Please count me!!! You are a gifted photographer and hope to see you soon! Thanks for the opportunity!

I am inspired by my husband who loves me absolutely no matter what. I'm inspired by my baby boy who is a dream come true. I'm inspired by family and friends and the way they take care of me. And mostly I'm inspired by God who will never give up on me.

I did everything including posting to my blog
I found you from my cousin Camille, I've always loved her family pictures! Thanks!

Haylee said...

I know this sounds cheesy, but your photography inspires me!! I am now officially a follower!! I am excited for your first give away!!

Christianne said...

Nature inspires me and rejuvenates me. Sadly, time also inspires me...there's so little of it to get things done!

I did all of the items except the facebook one. I'm probably the only person out there who isn't on facebook yet!

Thanks for the fun!

Hi Nichole I saw your pictures that you have taken of Camille and Mykel Henrie on her blog. I can't get over how beautiful the setting is and what an amazing family photo that is! I added your link to my blog, became a follower, posted about your pictures on my blog and became a HUGE fan on facebook. You really do have an amazing talent, I love all of your pictures.
My entire family inspires me, but especially my two beautiful daughters. As I have watched them grow, I am so lucky to have them and call them mine. I grow more amazed every day with them. They are my hero's, my sunshine and my everything! I work with special needs children and they inspire me as well. I realize what perfect spirits they are, and it challenges me to become a better person. I am so blessed to have the life I do and I am so grateful!
