i am SO HAPPY to announce the winner of this years valentine's contest is
netta, as i know her, has been one of my dear friends since senior year of high school. in fact, i was there at the beach that final day of senior year when she and mark took that infamous stroll down the sand and began dating. i was there the day they also took a walk down the aisle and were married in front of their friends and family. i hope to be there one day and hurriedly rush down the hospital hallways to see them with a little bambino...but no rush netta.
i can honestly say netta is one of the sweetest, kindest women i know. she has a pure heart, and mark adores her. i love the two of them, and love their love. when mark was deployed to afghanistan, her strength was remarkable and commendable. there's something special about those military wives.
netta recruited a whopping 93 votes for her love story, and now she's got a $50 credit for a session of her choosing. i can't wait to capture her and mark's love in the first professional photos they've had done since their wedding, and mark's deployment.
love you netta & mark, and congrats!
