Pay It Forward Contest Winners Announced

Hi everyone! I know I am late on posting the winners to the Pay IT Forward Contest. There were just so many touching stories it was hard to narrow it down to only two. After much thought we have FINALLY decided on the two winners.

The two Winners are

The Parerra Family and the Reindl family.

Stories of the winners to come 🙂

*Please contact me within 30 days to set up your session

Wanna earn some cash? Sign up for TDP's Referral Program!

Here’s how it works.

1- refer someone to me
2- get cash for every session or wedding booked

yep it is that simple 🙂

Now for the nitty gritty :p

When your referral books a session/wedding and tells me that you referred them I will paypal you money. If you don’t have a paypal account get one 🙂 They are free and easy to use. Then if they book a session you will get $10 if they book a wedding then you get $75! You will get this EVERY time someone books a session/wedding. So if you refer 20 people who book sessions you’ve just earned $200. If those 20 people book a wedding then you get $1500! If you have 100 friends who book weddings guess what you just made $15,000! Oh and when they tell me that you referred them make sure I know who you are! Let me have your paypal email address so I know where to send the money and so that I can contact you if need be 🙂

Here are some great ways to get the ball rolling

1- Referral cards- Pass them out to everyone you think might be interested! There is a special spot for you to put your paypal email address (so I know where to send the money) and when they bring the card in on their session or wedding consultation they get a free 5×7! Here’s what they look like and if you email me ( your mailing address I will send you 25 cards to start. If you end up needing more than that NO problem 🙂

2- Referral Banner- Add this banner to your facebook, myspace, blog or website. When someone books a session I will ask them where they heard of me from if they say it was from your site then I will send you money! If you are placing it on a blog or website make sure I know the URL of your site so when they tell me I know who to send the money to 🙂

Copy Code and place banner on your site! 🙂

Yep it is just that simple! You can earn money for simply passing out a card, mentioning my name, or sticking a banner on your site! The more people that book the more money you make! Plus as a bonus- If you get 10 people to book sessions you get free session yourself! So $100 PLUS a free session! Does it get any better than that!

Pay it Forward | Redlands, California | Family Photographer

I am a HUGE believer in Paying it Forward. All of us have been in a situation where things have been tough whether it be loss of a job, illness or just going through a rough patch. It is so wonderful when someone does something to help cheer us up, and pictures are a great pick-me-up!

The contest will start today: August 4, 2009 and run until September 1, 2009. At the end of the contest TWO lucky winners will be selected.

What the contest involves:

Please send me your name and contact information in a private email to (please add me to your address book so if you win I won’t go to spam)

I would like you to nominate a family that you feel would benefit from receiving a session from Turtle Dove Photography. Please include why you feel they would benefit, whether it be illness, death in the family, loss of job or any other reason you feel they are more deserving than any other entry.

When the contest is closed on September 1, 2009. I hope to have a LOT of entries!

As an added bonus if the family you nominate wins then you too will receive a session with Turtle Dove Photography!

Winners will be chosen from a panel of judges by September 11, 2009. I think we all know the significance of 9/11 and what a great way to remember it!

Please remember this is about helping others so be sure to nominate someone deserving and if you don’t know anyone then pass it along to your friends who may know someone.

The two winners will be notified on this blog on September 11, 2009. So please make sure to check back to see if you have won!
