Living Social mini 1-Hr Session!!!

It's here!!!! After speaking with Living Social, we agreed on creating this amazing deal on their LivingSocial Families site! Note that this deal is no way just limited to families and can apply to any single 1-hour (mini) portrait session including engagement session, head shots, maternity and more! Go ahead and share with your family, friends and for those in my wonderful network of vendors, feel free to share with your clients and make sure they tell me you referred them!

I really am VERY excited (stress the VERY and include a happy jive dance...although let's pretend I could do the jive) to meet new people and capture beautiful images.

For more information on the deal, check out the link here:

By the way, if you haven't seen the new website yet, check out !!!!

FREE Photography Session Giveaway Contest! Thank you Facebook Fans!

FREE Photography session giveaway is here! Well this is exciting (no I didn't get a turtle...and no don't ask why I have a picture of a turtle that isn't mine letting you know about the contest...he's cute...or she's cute...that's all that matters!) I learned my lesson from not being pro-active about my FACEBOOK page when I started my business, but thanks to everyone who helped me reach 500 Likes on FACEBOOK ! I know to a few it may not seem like a lot, but to me having people from friends, family, clients, potential clients, vendors I love and anyone who enjoy seeing my work like my page and share my page with those they know is a very big deal for this little person! Okay...I'm not that little, but at 5'2" I'm grateful and I'm all bottled up with happy tears :-). Because of you I am happy to do this Free photography session giveaway contest! It's free, it's fun and it's...err...facile (easy!). Why am I doing it? First, I really want to pay it forward since without supporters and friends and networkers who have helped spread the word about Angelica Criscuolo Photography, I wouldn't have bookings at all!!! I know there were those in doubt, but since I don't listen (my poor mommy knows this and is probably shaking her head beacause of my stubborness as well as commending me for my stubborness to pursue my goals and dream) to negative remarks and have put my mind and effort into this full fledge business (got the budget, forecast, balance sheets and everything!) I am here doing what I love and with the support of YOU who I in turn want to make happy by creating beautiful images, albums, prints and more! Second, I LOVE taking pictures! I'm itching to always go on a session! Third, contests are fun!!! Spread the word! My goal is to do bigger giveaways in the future, but small steps at a time.
