March Madness Photo Session Giveaway!!

**Updated: 3.18.11 @ 3:13pm *** CHANCES on How to Enter the Photo Session Giveaway has been Updated. Scroll Down!!***

I never imagined how far my photography business would go! What started as a simple hobby to get away from the stress of graduate school at UCLA, turned into something more that I absolutely love! To call it a “job” would be so unfair, because really, do people have this much fun doing work? Juggling between the career of a Neonatal Intensive Care nurse, photography and a full time mommy has been quite an adventure, but i can definitely say that I’ve never had to work a day in my life! (ok.. maybe but a little bit of hard work!). But, I just looooove meeting new families and learning their stories.. whether it’s a pregnancy journey and the horrid morning sickness, the sleepless nights and new love affair felt for a newborn, or the perils of parenthood!

A few days ago, I decided to finally create a facebook page for Kristine Atienza Photography. I had been posting all my photography work on my personal FB page, but I felt that it was time to time to separate my personal page from my professional page so that people wouldn’t get confused with the quality from my personal iPhone mobile pictures and my actual professional work.

Annnnnd in celebration of the Kristine Atienza Photography FB page, where my photography venture has currently led up to, March Madness College Basketball (Go UCLA Bruins!!) and St. Patrick’s Day, I’ve also decided to have a PHOTO SESSION GIVEAWAY!!!!
