    Your new site looks great! My fav thing was looking at your portfolio! Can I just say that it is awesome having seen how much you’ve done the past few years. I remember seeing you excited in Bravo about that girl who did photography and how you wanted to do it too…and girl did you do it! So I’d love to maybe win the mentoring session if it’s not strictly for photographers. I have my own custom cakes project and I’d love to hear if you had any tips. That portrait session would also be nice though! I’m finally going back to work after a year with my baby and it would be a great way kind of memorialize my time at home with him. Keep up the work lady!

  2. Jessica Hendricks

    December 5th, 2018 at 2:12 pm

    Aww, thank you Alexis – so excited you entered!! Can you believe it’s been so long?! That would be SO cool! I’d love to hear more about your custom cakes project!! YAY for going back to work after a year at home with the baby!!

    December 5th, 2018 at 2:41 pm

    How could one decide between all these amazing prizes you’ve put so much time and consideration into!? Of course, if one had to be picked it would be the portrait session because I’m still day dreaming of getting our family back in front of your camera lense! Congratulations on 5 years! We miss you and wish you all the luck with Baby B!! <3

  6. Katee Moore

    December 5th, 2018 at 2:51 pm

    PS) My favorite part of the website is seeing how you’re able to capture the elegance in every session you do!! Each family has truly been blessed to have you as their photographer!

  7. Megan West

    December 5th, 2018 at 3:23 pm

    Your new website is GORGEOUS! And even that is an understatement! Your hard work and dedication to your career is not going unnoticed! You have everything set up and ready to launch your business even further once you have some free time after the baby is born! Keep killing it girl!
    Also, the target gift card and the Starbucks coffee gift card would be a godsent lol. Going to school and working full time has a heavy sleepiness effect on you haha
    Great work!

    I ABSOLUTLEY love your photography work (hence why you’ve done my engagement, wedding, and maternity pictures!). With that being said if I had to choose a prize it would definitely be the portrait session. As you know I need family portraits done now that we added a new bundle of joy to our family on 11.23.18- just like you are going to any day now. SO EXCITING! I love everything about your website, but the organization and colors stand out a lot to me and make it very appealing. I love the portfolios and also feel like the website Flows very well and is easy to navigate.

    Hi Jessica! Can’t wait to see beautiful pictures of your beautiful little one! I was super impressed with your work at Michael and Kristen’s wedding! If I were to win a prize I would love a boudoir shoot for my hubby! After having a baby what better way to motivate me to get back in shape and give a nice gift to my hubby! Or I would
    love either of the gift cards with a new baby anything helps! I really enjoy the blog part
    of your new website! The entire website is
    beautifully done but I love the blog part!

    December 5th, 2018 at 4:25 pm

    I would love to win the Target gift card (cause Target, duh) OR the portrait session because I just love your work so much and it gives me an excuse to hang out with you for an hour and a half 🙂 The new website is amazing!

    I love your Press & Praise section! It’s so elegant and timeless. The overall look of your website is just gorgeous! It feels very welcoming 🙂 I’ve also liked and shared for the giveaway entry. I’d love the photo sessions if we were closer (located in Missouri) so I’d like to win the Target gift card. It’d allow me to finish my Christmas shopping without breaking the bank – I’ve been putting it off :S

  50. Jessica Hendricks

    December 9th, 2018 at 1:26 pm

    The Press & Praise section is one of my favorite sections too because it showcases all of the sweet words my wonderful clients have said about me! LOVE them so much!! <3 I'm always willing to travel for portrait sessions if you ever find a need for me to come to Missouri. <3

  61. Kimberly

    December 6th, 2018 at 2:43 pm

    Hi Jessica! Thanks for another chance at winning another giveaway!
    I love all the prizes you’re offering- but I’d especially love to have another portrait session or $100 Target gift card (because who doesn’t love Target?). Our fall photos came out so well that I think it’d be great to hold a Spring session next year! My boys are growing up so quickly that I feel any moments captured will be memories for me to cherish for a long time. Also, your style as a photographer is very raw and authentic, which is what I like!….. And so I think landing a portrait session as a prize will be pretty darn sweet!

  62. Jessica Hendricks

    December 9th, 2018 at 1:21 pm

    Thank you so much for entering Kimberly!! It was SO much fun working with y’all for the Fall Mini Sessions & I hope to see you all soon for the Spring mini sessions. 🙂
