Pic Couture--3 of you will win!










CAN. YOU. HANDLE IT? If you haven't heard, there is a fabulous new photo studio in the Salt Lake valley called Pic Couture. They just opened a huge and wonderful new space at "The District" in South Jordan. We were asked to be models for them and had such an enjoyable time with the photographers there. They were so great with our kids. And you should see all of the different spaces, textures, backdrops, props, furniture they have. It kind of feels like Disneyland. But it isn't cheesy. It's like Kiddie Kandids on steroids turned CLASSY.

So not only were we models (simply meaning we got to go in before their grand opening today and be guinea pigs), we are also featured on their flyers...which is kind of fun. They decided to take it a step further and asked me to sing for their TV/radio commercial. Loved it. The kids and I got to go back to the studio last week for the filming of the commercial (it's a music video commercial parody of Katie Perry's "Hot and Cold"). Please bless I don't look like a fool when it comes out next week. I might not ever know since we don't have T.V.

But enough about us. I have to tell you that Pic Couture has fantastic prices and a super easy shooting environment. It really is a steal. But on top of the steal, 3 of you are going to win 50% off your family photo session. That's like $60 for an entire disc of AMAZING family photos that you will cherish forever. Who wants it?

Rules:

Go to their facebook page and "like" them.
Leave your EMAIL ADDRESS and tell me why you need new family photos.

That's it!

And go look around their FB page and website. Those were all shot in their studio. You kind of have to see it to believe its awesomeness.

WINNERS WILL BE CHOSEN AND EMAILED FRIDAY, JULY 12

    I need new family pictures because we didn't get newborn pictures done when my daughter was born 5 months ago, and I haven't stopped kicking myself in the butt for it ever since! I'm dying for some good pictures of the three of us, but I keep putting it off for unemployment/financial reasons :(

  2. We need this because on my wall is our family picture that has my husband, myself and 3 kids.. You ask, "what is the problem then". The answer is simple, the problem is we have been a family of seven for over two years now and our family picture was taken back in 2007 when we were a family of 5!! Yes, I NEED an updated family photo so BAD! So please pick us :)

  6. Beautiful pictures! Love them! I couldn't tell from their fb page, but do they have other locations as well? We need new pictures because we haven't had good ones in 2 years and we've added a sweet baby girl to our 3 boys. I need good individual shots of each child, but haven't had much success with past photographers at mastering the group shots and individual ones as well. I'd love to try them out! Mpacora @ gmail .

  7. Oh I'd love to win! My father-in-law passed away almost six years ago, and my husband's family was pretty bad about taking pictures as a group as he and his siblings grew up (even for my father-in-law's funeral, they had a photoshopped picture of their family because my hubby's mom was behind the camera in the one they selected to put on display). My point in saying this is that my mother-in-law has tried to be better about getting out the camera and setting up the tripod when we are all together on special occasions, so that we can document our growing family. She has talked about splurging on a professional photographer next time, so this would be perfect! Thanks for the chance to win! brendaginos (at) gmail (dot) com

  8. Love the pictures! We need new family pictures because the last ones we got were horrible. Horrible. I would love a redo - especially at a discount!

  9. OMG!!! I can't stand how cute your pictures are and those children....oh my. Well, we could certainly use some family pictures. I take millions of camera pictures of my son, his wife and my sweet 3-year-old Braxton but hardly any include me....well, except the camera self-portraits of me and Braxton, most of which he is sticking out his tongue because he can see himself in the camera!! He is my world. He saved my life after I lost my husband and both parents in a short 7 month span. But life goes on....and I cherish the moments and days and years that I get to spend with my kids and my family. Happiness, it seemed, was always just around the corner but now five years later...I can truly say I am happy. I love your blog and you inspire me to want to be a better person.

  10. Your photos turned out great!
    I "loved" them on f/b, I can't believe how many back drops they have, that looks like the perfect place to get your pic's taken.
    I would love new family photo's taken, as you can NEVER have enough pictures of your kids, I cherish every photo I have, they are growing up way to fast, and I want to capture every minute.

  11. I seriously LOVE your blog Molly! I feel like you are one of my best friends and we've never even met!! My sweet little family need pictures taken so desperately! We have 3 beautiful children and have NEVER had portraits taken. I love all the new and fun ideas photographers are doing now and would LOVE to have such an important keepsake in my home. I admit that partly the reason we've never done any pictures has been because of MY "weight" insecurities. I always felt like I would ruin the picture because everyone would be looking at my size then actually at my beautiful family. But!! Its SO time!!! I dont want to look back and not have these treasured moments in time because I have big hips!!! I want to capture my precious little ones while I still can and not be worried about only myself!!! They are so beautiful and together we are an awesome family!! Love you Molly!!! e-mail chinamackey@yahoo

    We need family picture because in just a few short weeks all of our family pictures will be missing our newest little addition baby June(think that will be her name).

  13. I would love love to finally have a REAL family picture taken, since money is a issue we always set the timer and RUN.. now we do get some great all time funny shots doing this but it would be so much nicer to have REAL family picture. Then once we get one that looks normal which was in 2008 it stays on the wall... It would be so much fun to have a Family picture that looks so cute. Thanks for this great offer, and for sharing your family with us to read about your cute little ones. nykki77@gmail.com

  14. We need a family picture....the last one we got was 2 days after we found out our 3 month would need the top of her skull removed because of a birth defect. Now she is a smilely 2 yr old and we need to celebrate!!!

  15. I need them because I have never had professional family photos taken. EVER! And now I have 3 kids and I should at least have 1 professional shoot 1 time in my life. twshumway@gmail.com

  16. Cutest photos ever! We are in need of new family photos. I always take snap shots but I'm bad at the professional ones. It's been 2 years since I had someone do them for me with my own camera and I can't even admit how long since we had professional ones.

  17. I need professional pics because my hair is now brown and I've always been a blonde. Sadly enough one of my husband's co-worker thought I was his ex-wife because his "wife" in the other photo had blonde hair. Whaaaat.
    Hope I win!!! candacewhat@gmail.com

  18. These are beautiful! We need new family photos because 27 days from today, we will be a new family! My handsome hubby and I will be having our first child, a baby girl, on July 29th. I would love to have beautiful photos with our little lady! Plus we are poor college law school victims so this would really help us fit pictures into the budget! smarta18@gmail.com

  20. My third baby is six months old and we have never had a real family picture taken.
    Like a lot of other families, money is always an issue and we never have extra for a family picture. It makes me so sad to see all the outdated pictures on our wall. I would LOVE a nice family picture! stephydinger at yahoo dot com.

  24. I spent money on our very first family picture last summer(we have 2 kids, it was time) and I hated how they turned out! I was really disappointed. It took my husband a LOT of convincing before he agreed in the fist place. I've been dreaming of a new family picture but like a lot of families the money I would like to use for a new one simply finds its way towards something else. Help! Thanks!

  26. You don't know me but I have been reading your blog since your sweet Lucy passed away. I always felt a connection because I have a daughter named Lucy belle that is around the same age as your Lucy: your blog lifts me up and enspires me and I want to thank you for that. I won't go into much detail, but I would love to wi because we have not had a family photo taken since my second oldest was 8 months old. She is now almost 13 :( why you ask??? Well when I was pregnant with my youngest, Lucy, I got meningitis. Needless to say my health has been horrible along with almost a 100 lb weight gain. A lot of times I was bed ridden and then I got to the point where going from 120 lbs to over 200 lbs, I didn't want my kids to look at a family portrait and see me that way. Well, it's time to gt over that and love myself no matter what and I have been wanting a family photo to start it off!!! Again, thank you for your blog. It has helped me so much through all I have gone through.

  27. We haven't had a professional family pic done since my second child was born. We are due to have our 5th in January. Would love to do a family and the newborns done at the same time!!

  28. We haven't had professional photos taken of our family since my hubby graduated from college...in 2000!!! It's funny you should post this now because just yesterday I was thinking how badly we need new family photos. We're in NO financial position to do them as my husband has been out of work for 4 1/2 months--Ugh! Would love to try out this fantastic new studio!

    Thanks, Molly, for your continued faith and happiness. Your example is incredible and I admire you more than you'll ever know. You keep me going and keep my trials in perspective on a regular basis. You're amazing!!

  29. I love this giveaway so much. I would love to win the photo session. My reason is simple, I love and adore taking family pictures. It is so important to me to be able to have nice photos of our little growing family. I believe it is essential to take the time to capture these moments for us. My little family means the world to me and I never want to regret not taking the time to take the pictures of our family as we are. I appreciate your honesty in your writings and I just think you are great for so many reasons. Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

  30. I would love to give this to my grandparents, they have never had their pictures done, and with my grandpa now having a terminal illness, it seems beyond past time. I have been saving my pennies so that I could pay for them as a suprise, but half off that sounds amazing.

  31. Ive walked by this place and it is darling! I need family pics because the last time we had them done was Summer of 2009, so I am missing 2 of my kids in the picture. I dont even have it hanging on the wall because I feel bad. I know they need to be done, but between working full time nights on a mom/baby unit and going to nursing school, not only are we broke, we have no time! I hope I win :) PS Molly, I SWEAR I know you from somewhere!

  33. I'd love to have our family pictures taken because my hubby hates getting pics taken so he always has excuses as to why we shouldn't do it. This would eliminate most of those excuses. :) sweetpea_hd@comcast.net

  34. wintlefam@gmail.com We have a baby coming soon, so will have to get those pictures and an updated family picture. Sounds like a win/win if we win :)

  35. Considering how obsessed I am with pictures, can you even believe we have never had a professional photo shoot? Not once. It has always been out of our budget and it never seems to make it up my husband's priority list. We would cherish these and put them up all over our home...I hope I hope I hope! rachael.rawson@gmail.com

  37. I've liked them on Facebook and can't wait to see this studio in person! It has been almost 2 years since we had our family pics done and with a new baby coming in October, this would be the best gift ever! I LOVE the pics they took of your family, Molly. It's so sweet to see Lucy's pink shoes too...how precious!

  38. I would love to get new family pictures! It has been a few years and we just had our sixth baby in March and need to update the photo on the wall. I loved how you have Lucy's shoes in the picture. Very beautiful pictures!
