2017 Mothers Day Giveaway!

It’s time!  I’m going to do the Mothers day give away the same way I have before! Here are the details!

……..One of the best gifts you could give a mother, is photos of her and her children together…..

It’s a great feeling to look back at our photos of our babies growing, all of the milestones captured day after day, we wonder where time goes!!  Soon our babies are young adults, and they want to see photos of what mom looked like too..  We notice mom isn’t in as many photos, because mom is the one behind the camera!  So lets give her something really special.  Lets give her a photo session with her children, lets capture her love for her babies, so not only she can look back, but so can her babies, moms deserve to be in front of the camera too!!

Here’s how to enter your Mom, Grandma, Wife, Sister, Best friend, or even Cousin :

~ Send me a photo of her, with a number between 1 – 50 to : angelatabakophotography@gmail.com
          tell me what inspired you to send it, and what impact this wonderful woman has made on your life.

~ “LIKE” angelatabakophotography on facebook

~ Share the post on facebook and INSTAGRAM!!  Give other moms a chance to win too!

The number drawing will take place May 10th, 2017

If more than one of the same number gets drawn, all those moms will be given the session!

There will be NO voting!!  Please do not send professional photos.

What does this special mom get??? She gets 7 digital images,  from a 30 minute session!! 

The session photos will be placed on social media (facebook, instagram, & blog), so the only thing I ask in return is the model release to be signed.

If you’d like to purchase a larger session for a special family, please contact me and we can make arrangements!

Here are just a few photo examples I took of some amazing mommies their babies/children ❤

Second Shooting

I get to experience many weddings thru the summer.. but some I don’t get to show you!  In a photography world it’s common for second shooters to not use the photos they take, in fact most don’t even see them at all at the end of the day. I think for some that might be hard to grasp,  I do believe that you have to be 100% ready to let that go, and just enjoy the day and love what you do and capture some amazing memories.  At the end of the day for me, I give my cards to the person i’m working for, and feel confident I have just handed them my best work. It’s so fulfilling and I will continue to do so.  So sometimes, second shooters are allowed to use some photos, it’s rare for me so heck yeah i’ll appreciate that 150% when I get the opportunity.   There’s just something about taking photos as a second shooter that I really enjoy, I not only get the candid photos, I don’t have the pressure on mu shoulders that I know I also get as a main shooter.  Main shooters are responsible for much more, so it’s kinda relaxing as a second, and it’s fun for me to help out! I’ve worked with  many amazing photographers, and I love each and every one, I wouldn’t change a thing. One of those is Callie V.  so here, check out a wedding I helped her out with, enjoy!
