Nikon D90 Giveaway | Oh So Posh Actions

I am so so excited to announce this awesome giveaway!!! It’s Christmas after all and Christmas season is all about giving not getting!! At least that’s what it is for me!! I have been saying over and over how very grateful I am for all of my amazing Facebook fans!! But I wanted to let each one of you know again that without you, I would not be here today!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for spreading the word about my page, about the Bohemian Symphony Collection, thank you for your patience when I was not able to get to your emails right away, thank you for pushing me outside my confort zone and bare with me through those video tutorials where even now when I watch them I am thinking, I sure hope people understand me:), thank you for believing in me, thank you for being there for me this past year through your wonderful emails, comments or just a silent prayer, thank you for how much I learned this year all because of you, when you teach you learn and wow I have learned so so much this year, thank you for allowing me to be me and not judge me when I write and express myself in corky ways since English is my second language, THANK YOU for BEING YOU!! My thank you list can go on and on but I know you are all so excited about this giveaway!!!

So why a NIKON? Well, I am a Nikon girl!! I started with a Nikon D80 (now D90) and wow when I got my hands on that camera, I forgot about everything. I forgot that I was even fighting cancer!! I was so into the camera wanting to learn everything about it. So this camera has a bit of a sentimental value to me! I am hoping that I can just make somebody’s life a little brighter this year when they will get this camera in the mail!!

My dad used to teach me so much about how importnat is to help others and to give 10% of all that I make. And to give not to expect that somehow God would give me more, but just to give with an open heart. Well I am human and I loved to give but secretly I was hoping I would get more in return:).. Until I read this somewhere and WOW that all made sense. The quote read : ” You don’t give to get more, you give to get more, so you can GIVE MORE!” And that my friends is why I am so excited to have this giveaway!!!

Here are the details for the camera:
Nikon D90 12.3MP DX-Format CMOS Digital SLR Camera with 18-105 mm f/3.5-5.6G ED AF-S VR DX Nikkor Zoom Lens

Mindy Kral - December 17, 2011 - 11:27 pm

In the last year I have had the privilege of taking pictures with my Nikon D40 for some incredible families. I recently had a coworker tell me that I had missed my calling as a professional photographer and so I am inspired more than ever to pursue my passion! Btw, I’m only 27 :) I want to be able to provide great quality photos for everyone. Pictures are an investment and I know not everyone can afford it but I believe everyone should have the priviledge of captured memories. I hope I can bless even more families in the years to come because I have been so richly blessed this last year. Thank you for this giveaway and the opportunity to press towards my personal goals!!

Justin Riddle - December 17, 2011 - 11:28 pm

Jenifer Corbett - December 17, 2011 - 11:28 pm

Thanks for taking the time to start all this over. I would love this camera. I have been taking pictures as long as i can remember. Can’t afford to go to school, i have a daughter with Autism, severe SPD, static encephalophthy amongst other things. Makes it hard to do things that cost to much like buying a new camera. I have an awesome SLR my dad bought 29 years ago for my birth. It doesn’t take the greatest pictures anymore. My husband bought me a very nice cannon for my daughters birth 2 years ago. It has dissapeared :( Please look at my pictures on facebook and you’ll see just how much i LOVE taking pictures. You’ll see my favs are landscape and nature. Thank you for this opportunity to enter.

Tyrra White Clinkenbeard - December 17, 2011 - 11:28 pm

I love your work and values that you’re willing to share your knowledge and “give back”. I would so love to win this camera! I’m sure a lot of people would too lol. But I have an old 7 mp digital camera and my 8mp phone that I use. I’m trying to learn about editing slow but sure. I would love to have a good camera to help me as I go. I take a lot of pictures even if the quality isn’t that great. I really enjoy it one of the few things I do seem to enjoy these days. Thank you for sharing this contest and the opportunity. Keep up the good work!

He’s a newly retired pastor from 40 years in the church who now has a LOT of time on his hands and a renewed interest in photography. I’m very happy to see someone living in the true Christmas Spirit and am glad a friend told me about you. I can’t imagine the amount of work you’ve had to do with this (what should be a) simple giveaway! Well done you! This is really going to be a special gift for someone and that’s so kind of you to do!

Melodie Pinkston - December 17, 2011 - 11:34 pm

I don’t think my last comment was posted! If so, please disregard this one. Just want to say that you are such an inspiration. Not just in photography, but in life. I love to read your posts about life. I feel that life is a blessing. I think that life is precious and so beautiful to live. You had a post a few weeks back that touched me. It was about taking pictures together with your children. I have tons of pictures of my family, yet I’m not in many because I’m always the one behind the camera. So, this year when we went to the local gardens to see the Christmas lights, I handed my camera to a complete stranger and asked her to take a picture for us. I love it simply because we are ALL in it! Thank you! P. S. I still can’t comment or like on your page! I’m hoping to figure it out soon!

Teresa Garrett-Martin - December 17, 2011 - 11:36 pm

God Bless your generous and giving heart! I am so thrilled at the chance to win this AWESOME camera! I am relatively new to the photography scene. (As in now I am charging people for the work I use to do for free.) But my very first paid session was a beautiful 6 wk old baby girl who weighed in at a whopping 6 lbs. I borrowed my friends camera, which just happened to be a Nikon D90, as she had a better lens for those super sweet close-up shots. Why not just borrow the lens you ask? Don’t hold it against me, but my primary camera is a Canon. Eeeek I know! But I really did love the quality of shots I got with it. Super easy to use and so very quiet. I only had about 15 minutes to do a crash course on using a Nikon before my session started. I did mention I was new to the scene remember? But I have realized that as my schedule begins to fill up I am in desperate need of a second camera in my bag of tricks for when the unexpected happens. I have been ever so lucky so far, but would love the comfort of knowing that I have a excellent back up plan. Good Luck to you all and Happy Holidays.

Rachele W. - December 17, 2011 - 11:36 pm

I love your work so much and all your actions. Every time I see a new photo of your work online, I get all excited to view your new stuff. Thanks so much for being you and for all your hard work, even if battling with cancer. I know how that can drain some energy as my mother went thru it, and has now been in remission for 7yrs. WOOT! May God bless you and continue to bless your business too!

Thank you for this wonderful giveaway. I would really love to win this camera. I had a Nikon, but just a few weeks ago had to sell it in order to buy my kids Christmas presents.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays :) Sorry if this posts twice…I keep getting an error :(

You are such an inspiration to me! I have had a rough few years and reading your story has truly inspired me! I have not been doing alot in photography but miss it very much. I have had medical and financial problems over the past few years and even at one point sold my DSLR to pay some of the bills we aquired through all of it. I have gotten another camera just not the one I was trying to hold out for. I can’t be without a camera too long. I know that through all of this God has a plan and will lead me o the light at the end of the tunnel. I am amazed by the things God has blessed me with and can’t wait to see what blessings are in store! Thank you for the opportunity to enter to try to win this. It truly would be a blessing. God Bless you!

Hey Lidia, thanks so much for all that you do. I love your work, but more importantly, I love your personality and what you do with your little angel Isadora. You have truly inspired me to become a better photographer as well as a better father. Your ideas, like drawing hearts on Isadora’s arms or face, is absolutely awesome. I wish I had thought of something like this when my girls were younger, they’re teenagers now… Anyway, you are loved and appreciated, have a wonderful holiday and a very Merry Christmas! I look forward to seeing future posts.. by the way, Isadora’s latest ‘music sessions’ are so cute! Keep ‘em coming.

I currently shoot with a Nikon FM10, which is an all manual, film camera, and, well, film is getting expensive!

You are a strong woman, and God has great plans for you I am sure. You are truly an inspiration, and I thank you for this opportunity!

Ashley Rocha - December 17, 2011 - 11:46 pm

Hi Lidia. I would so love to win this camera. I am a photographer, but I am having a number of camera issues and it is time to look into getting another one. A new camera would be such a blessing for me. Here’s my story…it’s not very deep and I’m no hero, but I have had a HUGE number of people in my life die to the awfulness of cancer. My step-sister is currently fighting breast cancer at just 26 years old. She had a double mastectomy not even two weeks ago. Why am I telling you this? Because I have a dream. I want to one day be able to have the opportunity to capture cancer patients on camera. Capture them in those moments while they’re fighting their battles; capture them in their last days surrounded by their family members so the ones they leave behind have those memories to last forever, capture them POST-cancer so I can celebrate with them on their battle won. That is my dream. That is why I want to win the D90. Thank you for the chance at that.

Melissa - December 17, 2011 - 11:46 pm

chalsae darr - December 17, 2011 - 11:46 pm

Hi. Thanks so much for this opportunity! I have been telling EVERYONE I want a Nikon DSLR and I don’t think it’s happening. My boyfriend works a minimum wage job so we only had money to buy for our daughter this year. Which one of the reasons I would love this is for her, we have not been able to afford any professional or studio pictures of her. I feel horrible about it. Also, I’ve recently started a little jewelry business but am not getting many sales, I have a point and shoot so my pictures are to say the least, unprofessional. This would benefit myself and my family greatly. Even if I don’t win, thank you for the opportunity, again! It’s so great of you to offer something like this. Happy Holidays to you and yours!

Tracy Le Sage - December 17, 2011 - 11:46 pm

I shared your giveaway on my facebook page, thank you for the wonderful and exciting opportunity to win such an amazing giveaway!
Your generosity and willingness to share your knowledge of photography never ceases to amaze me, I read your page everyday as it is filled with so much love and positive thoughts which is quite inspiring. To be giving away a camera is quite remarkable especially when it has quite a sentimental value to you. Whom ever is the lucky winner I know will look after it well as each fan of yours knows how much it means to you. You have a heart of gold and the brightest spirit, it’s no wonder you have over 25,000 fans! Don’t ever change Lydia! xx Wising you a safe and merry christmas, all the best for the new year ahead! xx

This would be by far the best xmas present ever. I want to start my own photo business instead of driving 2hrs to have pictures taken. have always been told i take good pics but would love to have a professional camera. Im going in for an emergency surgery on Monday kinda scared. So on xmas i only get to see my babies for a little bite But winning this camera would be a start to my new years resolution on starting to work and helping other people out on cheaper pricing for pictures. Website blog is down i cant get n so im hoping u could use this as an entry. Thank u for this awesome giveaway. U r so kind god bless and Merry Christmas

I am DYING to win this camera! I definitely believe in paying it forward and unfortunately, due to circumstances of losing my job recently, I am not able to do so at this moment. I would be very lucky to be able to get this camera, as I need to upgrade. If I won, I would be able to pay it forward and give my camera to someone who needs it! Thanks for the opportunity!

Love your work! Since the day I purchased the Bohemian collection, I have not stopped editing photos! It brings everything to life! I also have a passion for photography. I have a degree in urban/city planning, however, I have chosen to follow my passion instead. I’m a stay-at-home mother to two daughters. I pray that I’m teaching them to follow their dreams/passions instead of working solely for money doing something they don’t love! May you have a blessed Christmas!

Jasmine Dutko - December 17, 2011 - 11:54 pm

I absolutely love everything on your blog! You are so amazing at what you do, and so inspirational. I hope someday I can be as successful as you have become.

You are so sweet to be giving away a camera like this for the holidays. So thank you keep up the good work I know you will go far. Happy Holidays! :)

I think that this is really nice of you to give away such a nice camera to one lucky winner. I really liked the work you have done just by looking at your facebook site. I could really use this new camera as I love to take pictures of my kids. Both of my daughters are in competitive cheer leading and I take pictures of them doing that as well. I have pictures up if you care to look. I have been looking for a new camera as the one I have no is broken and don’t always take the pictures. Again this is a great give away that you are doing.

My 20 year old son, who has Systemic Lupus and Asperger’s Syndrome is an aspiring photographer. He is an Applied Mathematics major at UTD and recently had one of his photographs that he took with my mother’s D90 selected for publication in the University’s new Exley Research Journal which is coming out in the spring. We are unable to afford to purchase him a camera of his own at this time so it would really be a blessing and boost to his passion if we were selected to win the D90. Good Luck to all those who have entered and Congratulations to whoever wins this awesome camera.

Donald Maloney - December 18, 2011 - 12:07 am

Donald Maloney- Would love to win this for my wife. She told me about the contest a little while ago. She wants to be a photographer, but times are hard so she hasn’t been able to save up to much for a new camera. I think if I won she would be more then thrilled with her Christmas present.

Fran Graham - December 18, 2011 - 12:07 am

What a generous giveaway! Merry Christmas to your family.

Crystal Givens - December 18, 2011 - 12:07 am

Wow with so many comments I don’t suppose I have much of a chance but the camera isn’t actually for me anyways. It’s for my best Ecuadorian friend. She loves photography but has never had a nice camera. She looked at cameras down there but they’re all twice as expensive. I told her I would look for one for her here and bring it to her when I go back this summer but I’m not even sure how I would pay for it to get it to her because I don’t have that kind of money. She specifically asked for a Nikon. But if not this one, God will show us which and when.
God bless you!

Tara - December 18, 2011 - 12:07 am

Christina Schulze - December 18, 2011 - 12:15 am

My friend directed me to your giveaway a couple of days ago. I also love photography and my camera broke about 6 months ago, she must of known I would love to win the camera. However, visiting your page and reading about your foundation has touched my heart. What a beautiful soul to turn such turmoil into something so wonderful. What faith you have to find yourself along this path. Reading the letter from your father and viewing the pictures of the little girl with brain cancer touched my heart. You spoke to me tonight, in the midst of all the holiday hustle and bustle we often need to stop and live in the moment, thank you for the reminder. God bless your talent and goodness!

Angelina Ramirez - December 18, 2011 - 12:15 am

Love the beautiful pictures you take. YOur story is truly inspiring. Please keep up the good work & thank you for the opportunity to win such a great item =) Maybe one day I will be a great photographer as well.

Lauren Austin - December 18, 2011 - 12:15 am

My name is Lauren Austin. Thank you so much for what you do for your fans, for sharing your thoughts even those that do NOT pertain to photography. Being yourself is what it is all about. I have been following you for some time now. I even use some of your stuff which I will say is awesome!! I understand the life of cancer as I have had to face it with my VERY close loved one many times now and lost my older brother of 37 to it last year whom was also a photographer. He was teaching my mother and me so with this said, to know other photographers and being able to learn from where he left off makes me feel he is right here with me everyday and every single time I pick up my camera. So my philosophy is, I am carrying on his dreams and more through my life of photography and the moments that I get to capture! My Best wishes to you and yours.

Miranda Keatts - December 18, 2011 - 12:15 am

Tanya Riley - December 18, 2011 - 12:15 am

I was seeing your post about your web server issues so I decided to see why. I have no idea how I missed your contest! Your photography is amazing and your actions create a beautiful look for the photos. My camera had to be sold a few years ago when my family fell onto financial hardship. Since then, I’ve missed my Nikon so much. I had a D70. This would be a great blessing to me. I hope that whoever wins it is blessed by it as well.

Tanya Pierce Kurnik - December 18, 2011 - 12:15 am

Thank you for the wonderful freebies. I enjoy playing around with them! I work for a Hmong Charter School that is filled with many immigrants, so having a real camera to use everyday at school would be so much better. I am always taking photos for our school and printing them out to be displayed so that the students, teachers and staff can enjoy them. Everyday your work continuously inspires me to put more passion into my photography. Again, Thank you! Blessings to you and your work.

mercedes - December 18, 2011 - 12:20 am

*** I am 29 years old and my mother passed away last September, she loved photography, she always said that it captures the moments passed, but enables us to see the future in the truest sense. We are so sad many days that we do not have a camera, only a phone to take our pictures; for we have a new born and a two year old and I am sad that we are not able to capture moments in their true beauty, for I know that we will look back and regret it emensely, for I already do, but we are not able afford a descent camera. Everyone I know has a Nikon (every picture looks amazing) and thank goodness I have someone who was able to take our baby’s pictures shortly after she was born, but I would be so happy to be able to capture every moment in its true essence, not just when someone has time. This camera would mean the world, for it will seal the memories of our family for years to come and for that, I would be everso grateful, more than you would ever know.

Have a Very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Sarah Patino - December 18, 2011 - 12:23 am

Hola, Sarah Patino here. Marysville Ca…moving to Utah in January. My family camera just took a dumper after I graciously took family pics for a friend of ours. Now I desperately need a new camera to do my own pics. Ahhh, of course it would happen at Christmas time. My babys first Christmas may be photo-less. How horrible. Luck to me!!! Oh & goodwill to all. hehe

Cami Bauman - December 18, 2011 - 12:23 am

What a great camera to give away (and super generous of you!), thanks so much for the chance to win a D90 and lens! -Cami Bauman

Mahdi Gransberry - December 18, 2011 - 12:24 am

The first camera I ever held was a D90 while at a summer program. It just felt right. I’d like the chance to feel that same way again. Photography is my passion and I’d like to explore it more while I’m young then wish about what could have been later.

Happy Holidays Lidia. Just wanted to say that you are such an inspiration to me. I just found out a few months ago that I have leukemia. It showed up during my prenatal blood work. I will start treatment after the birth of my first child in April. I’m terrified. I’ve had diabetes since I was 12 and this is just something else to add into the mix. Seeing that you got through everything and have flourished gives me hope. Thank you so much for sharing your story.

Your photos have inspired me SO much ever since I found your facebook page. I was losing hope in photography after a client cancelled on me for a cheaper photographer. I felt like I was worthless as a photographer, like I had lost all inspiration to try harder. Then I saw your photography! Boy, was I hit with the inspiration bug. I immediately called up some friends and we had a little photoshoot. You can see the photos here:

I would so love this camera! Pictures have always been so important to me but it has taken on an entirely new meaning after the VA messed up treating my Traumatic Brain Injury. I have permanent brain damage so my memory isn’t so good. I take pictures a lot now so I can keep memories around that my brain doesn’t. Of course, I will never be as good a photographer as you but it would mean the world to me.

I have always loved taking pictures as long as I can remember, but I also loved to help the sick. So,I went college got my BSN and I love it. I also love photography, there is not a place I go that I do not have some way of snapping those lil memories. Sometimes I wonder if that is what I was supposed to be doing all along. Either way I enjoy helping people at their worst and capturing those lil moments, when they feel their best. You are a fighter, and we appreciate you!

April Tomei - December 18, 2011 - 12:33 am

Wow, you are one amazing person! To sit here and read all your post and read about what you have been through and how much stronger it has made you. There is always a reason for everything in life and at times we may not know why but we always have to remember that God is in control. I don’t know why God picked you to go through a rough time in your live but I do know that you are one of his angels that is here on earth to help everybody out.

Dealing with a family member being sick hits home for me. I have a four year old niece that has a tumor on her brain. She has been fighting this for 14 months now. She is a fighter and a very brave little girl. I have asked why her and I may not know the answers right now but I can say she has always held a very special place in my heart. Her being sick has open my eyes on what people go through when they are really sick. I think you appreciate life more and I know she has forever changed me.

This giveaway is awesome and I know so many people would love to win this camera and be just like you. I am a mother of 5 and love to take pictures. I also am the yearbook advisor at one of the local schools in my town. This camera would come in handy for me, just like everybody else that is trying. Good luck to everybody! I hope the winner has great success and can share some of their photos that they take with their new camera with all of us.

God bless you and your family! May you have a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year!

Tinia Creamer - December 18, 2011 - 12:33 am

Hello! Your work is beautiful!

I do photography, but my primary focus is horse rescue
and our small family farm.

What stands out to me with your ABOUT ME section is it seems
that you have used photography to inspire you in your recover, and that is what I have used my rescue and farm for, as well.

Though I am not a cancer survivor, my farm page explains on our “Our Farm’s Name” page what happened in my life to make me appreciate each day in a way many people can never understand!

My husband laughs at me because all I do is cruise amazon and best buy for slr cameras. I recently picked up photography on the side to help bump up my income due to teacher pay cuts.

Rebecca Nash - December 18, 2011 - 12:51 am

Lidia, I have a simular story to yours.
Every since I was little I had am obsession with the camera and taking photos, I always changed my mind on what I wanted to be when I grew up. In high school I joined the photography class that would change everything it sparked my interest even more and couldn’t hold back so I would have my cousins be my models but everything changed on January 25, 2009. On 1-25-09 I died and met Jesus, I was far from being the Christian I should have been and desired sweets many things in life that I pleaded with him that I just wasn’t ready yet I wanted to live my life and have kids and get married, to make my dream of photography come true….he let me stay. I was life flighted to another state, later on we found out I suffered from a hang man’s fracture, basically I was internally decapitated the only thing hold my head on was my skin. I was put into a coma where I died three more times. My right leg was destroyed and at anytime they might have to amputate it, I also had a lot of eye issues, brain damage, nerve damage and a lot of broken bones. I spent 3 months in the hospital and I lost totally ability to move a finger so I had to be fed someone had to brush my teeth and I had to learn how to do everything over I spent 6 months in bed before I could actually stand up and then a Year and a half in a wheel chair. The doctors said I would never walk, I would never be the same but I proved them wrong, I am a better person today because of what I went through. Knowing you had cancer and beat it and you have a wonderful daughter and You don’t let anything hold you back you are truly amazing and it gives me hope and a will to make my dreams come true. I am so thankful I found you on Facebook and I appreciate the chance to win this fabulous camera. If I win I would love for you to sign it. Again thank you for making a lasting impression! Merry Christmas.

Great contest; I’ve never seen a camera given away like this w/o it being part of a photography contest…which to a person who doesn’t have this type of camera yet, is pretty difficult to win. So I just wanted to thank you, hope you have a blessed Holiday season and a wonderful New Year!

Robert Reed Jr. - December 18, 2011 - 12:52 am

Wow this is a really neat thing that you are doing hear giving away a really nice Camera. I have used D5000 that I like a lot that my wife got me last year. I love taking pictures and am now having symptoms of Ms that keep me from doing as much as would love to. I really hope I could win this camera it would be a great advance to my photography desires. I grew up around my grandfather who was a very good professional photographer with his own dark room and all but unfortunantly I could not afford to keep up with what he tried to teach me as a kid and my wife gave me a little Kodak 3.1 mega pixel camera 2 years ago and realized I had a nack and then got me the used D5000 and am loving every minute so this would be so neat to have such a neat NEW camera well thanks for the opportunity to enter the contest. got to love my wife of 30 years for helping me so much

I love your work! And that gorgeous daughter of yours! Thanks for sharing your story about giving to receive so you can give more…. Very inspirational…. I’m a fairly new photographer and to win this camera would be absoutly amazing!!!! Good luck to everyone.

Niki Evans - December 18, 2011 - 12:55 am

As to I think all of us would love to win this camera. Whether we take pictures for a living or if we just take snap shots of our kids playing. (Or if you’re like me let my little photographer take pictures) But I have a friend who’s name is Rebecca Nash (http://www.facebook.com/groups/155494857861893/permalink/194603217284390/#!/swtkisses8705) who is an amazing photographer and has always loved to take photos. We’ve been friends for years now and ironically after we met we learned that our parents worked together. She always remains here for me considering I lost my dad 3 years ago (which she loved like a dad as well). And I remain there for her, considering she was in a horrible car accident and is a huge miracle in herself. Medically speaking my best friend should not be alive today. (I thank God that she is still with us today!!!) God sees reasons for everything to happen in this life we live, but I’m so glad he gave her a second chance at life. I would be lost without her! I’m sure everyone that reads these don’t want me to go into detail so I won’t. But it would be an amazing awesome Christmas present for her that I would be eternally greatful for (as would she) She is such an amazing person! Now that she’s back to normal again she’s going to college, and taking pictures she is such an amazing person and would be an awesome winner for your gift. Thank you for reading and taking her into consideration! I hope you have a wonderful & blessed merry Christmas! God bless you!

Amber Wise - December 18, 2011 - 12:55 am

I got into photography when I was in high school, in photography club, Ever since then, i have been obsessed with the camera. I did alot of yearbook and photos for my high school upon graduation I started a small photo company, to help pay for college. Now I do photography part time for extra cash when needed. I use a bridge camera at the moment, which is the GE x500 power pro. it is a good camera for now, until I am able to upgrade. I cant wait to become a full time photographer!! Thank you so much for giving me a chance to enter this giveaway!! I am fan of yours!! I find your work simply amazing!!

Rebecca Jones - December 18, 2011 - 12:58 am

What a beautiful way to celebrate christmas! How very generous of you!! I would love to win this as I am starting my own business from home, I need a camera to be able to take photos of my work to spread the word. It is something I am extremely passionate about. I want all children and parents far and wide to act on their instincts rather than fear in this modern day! I am so keen to get started on my new endeavour and I think this would be the perfect way to kick it all into gear! I have three children of my own and I’d love to be able to support them and be a role model to them just like you have shown to your own daughter! Women are strong and amazing! http://www.facebook.com/beckii81 Merry Christmas! xx

amy lynn uzzardo - December 18, 2011 - 1:00 am

I have never WON anything lol! So either its a curse, or maybe its my time! :) I do however, agree with lidia – giving is always better than receiving! Sooo sadly though my love for photography is ever sooo growing, and so are my babies!! I have a 5 month old, 2 year old, and six year old :) I can’t wait to be able to capture all of the little “essences” of others lidia speaks of, but sooo many of mine are passing quicker than I could have ever imagined! So even though, esp at this time of year, giving is always better than receiving — I would LOVE to make an exception.. (just this once of course!! hehe…) Happy holidays to everyone!!
And thank u Lidia, for all of your inspiration, courage, strength, and truth.. your father taught u well, and I’m sure is very very proud of you :)

Tracy Dain - December 18, 2011 - 1:00 am

You are so amazing!! I am intrigued by your life and the way you chose to live. I believe life is a choice we make, how it will be for us and the ones around us. We can make the best of it or the worst of it, God gave us a choice. But our strength really comes from Him only! I love your photography, I love your blog, I love your sweet little girl, I love the way you are such a good mom to her and how you adore her. One can tell you love her deeply. My heart goes out to you how things have happened, with your dad, your husband and your breast cancer. You are such a trooper! Wow, all these difficulties in life and you still smile and are so caring for others. That is what I see in what I read and through your pictures. May God richly bless you and keep you in his arms and protection. May you feel always so precious and loved by him for he cares deeply for you and your little angel.

Uh oh. More error messages. Error submitting comment, then duplicate comment. I hope this goes through. This is an awesome giveaway. If it continues to cause you problems you could always set it up as a rafflecopter form or maybe a google doc. I’m not sure exactly how to do it, but that’s how I’ve entered most blog giveaways.

Julia Pressley - December 18, 2011 - 1:24 am

A friend of mine told me about this giveaway. She knew that I had been saving for a better camera and hoping income tax season would give me an extra boost towards it. I’m an aspiring photographer chasing after my passions and have done so thus far with a small point and shoot digital camera which has surprisingly worked well enough to establish the start of my business. Winning this would be amazing! I could do so much more of what i want to do and feel like i deserve to with a better camera! I guess I will have to just wait and see… :) but thanks for the opportunity!

Sarah K - December 18, 2011 - 1:24 am

You inspire me each day with all that you do, give and share. Your strength, hope and resiliency despite the tremendous challenges that life has held for you — it’s amazing! I have had moments when I call to mind words that you have shared and it empowers me to think differently and act differently. Though you have contributed so many blessings to me as a portrait artist, I think the biggest gift has been the personal wisdom that you impart each day in the words you write. You remind me of that quote from Mother Teresa – “Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier.” Thank you for being a bright light in this world!

Claire Pacelli - December 18, 2011 - 1:39 am

Hi Lydia

First of all I must say your story really made me cry. What a faboulous outlook you know have on life and I guess that just shows that every cloud has a silver lining. If you hadn’t gone through your cancer you might not have appreaciated and cherished things as you seem to do today!

I wish you and your family all the best for 2012 and I look forward to purchasing more of your fantastic actions. I am so in love with your bohemian symphony as it is but always looking for more and new exciting edits.

Hopeflly the image to edit will be shot with this Nikon ;)

Love and merry wishes

Thanks for the great tips and blog!

Laura James - December 18, 2011 - 2:23 am

Really enjoyed all your post on fb… You have such a huge heart and I hope that you have/will inspire more to have just the same. I really love learning from your videos and I appreciate the time you take to go over everything and how you try to respond to as many people as possible. Thank you for being YOU. I have to say I was really touched with the letter your dad wrote for you… I was lucky enough to give my dad a letter before he passed away in July.. It’s amazing the hard work these dads go through and when they do move on that they are instilled in our hearts and that just by your example it gets passed on. I’m sure that is one of the greatest rewards for them is to know that you pass it on without a thought. I again must say I really enjoyed finding you on FB. You truly are a blessing! If you enjoy what you are doing it’s never work… Have fun, play hard, laugh harder, and love those closest to you the fiercest. :) Keep doing what you do best!!! :)

Katrina - December 18, 2011 - 2:24 am

you have been so patient through this whole crashed blog ordeal and then to want to host another giveaway…that makes you amazing! i’m still going to share on your giveaway on facebook for those who might have tried to enter or did get an entry in before the crash. thank you

You inspire me in my work and its great seeing another mother do what I love to do as well for work. Winning this would just be such a blessing to receive for my work. I love doing photography and I hope to be as creative as you someday : ) I also shared this blog on my facebook. https://www.facebook.com/jeniraephotography

I would love to win this camera not for myself but for my friend who is struggling Big Time. Its going to be a challenge for her to put food on the table this year let alone presents. She is such a dreamer and hopes one day to be able to own a little camera so she can start capturing her ideas. This would truly make her happy as she really cant afford one like most of us can ;) Blessings Rubi

Hi Lidia! I purchased your collection just a few months back and can’t get enough of it!
Today, In Ohio we had almost a foot of snow in one day! Our first snowfall of the season and the first snowfall for my husband and I as a married couple this Christmas. I used Carnival Lights and Arabian Nights to create an absolutely stunning image of this special moment for us. Thank you!! I just adore your photography! It’s inspirational! What’s even more inspirational is your desire to give “forward.” It makes my heart joyful just to know that there are people in this world like you who put their whole heart into their work AND their giving! The best part of this contest is the opportunity for your readers to understand how powerful a gift can be for the giver and receiver!

Jennifer Jones - December 18, 2011 - 2:55 am

My name is Jennifer Jones and I love photography! My most favorite part of photography is capturing memories with families that do not get the chance to capture their child’s unique personality on camera or just the family alone. I have many customers contact me for pictures and there are a few that break my heart. Not in a bad way just in a way that touches my heart and I want to help them during hard times. When I come across a couple or family that is not able to afford professional pictures, I let them know that I am here for them. The best part is seeing how they look at the finish product and the joy in their faces is priceless! I love helping people and I think we should have more of that in this beautiful world! God bless and good luck everyone!!! Thank you Oh so posh photography for this chance to make a difference in someones life!

Kirsten Garrison - December 18, 2011 - 2:55 am

A friend I was once neighbors with many years ago, posted about your contest on Facebook. I am so glad to have found your blog~ So inspired by your story and your pictures are amazing! I had just found the delight of photography when I bought my first digital camera about a year ago. I had gotten some once-in- a-lifetime shots that I think could be displayed or sold. Unfortunately, while taking pictures in the woods with my 3 yr old grand nephew…I lost my balance and landed with my hand smashing the lens. Needless to say~ a new camera would bring back the joy I had recording our adventures. Have a Merry Christmas season for you and yours!

Melissa Ramsey - December 18, 2011 - 4:00 am

Jeri Kennedy - December 18, 2011 - 4:29 am

I am totally in love with what you do. It gives me the confidence that I too can become a great photographer and also a great mum to my daughter who is only 9months old. I started photography due to breaking my heart my camera getting stole at hospital when she was born. Have nothing but memories in my head of her being so small. I dont want to crowd these memories with more so I’m snapping away at every moment so I can look at the picture’s. Having a photographer for a sister-in-law I always thought would be amazing but when her services were needed when my daughter was born she refused. This broke my heart more and I hope that one day I can make the difference to someone that she could have made to me but sadly didn’t. I understand how important capturing memories are and I’m glad to be following you on facebook to follow your memories in the hope that one day mine will be as good. Thanks so much for your inspiration xxx

I am totally in love with what you do. It gives me the confidence that I too can become a great photographer and a great mum to my daughter who is only 9months old. I started photography fue to my heart breaking when my camera got stole at the hospital while she when she was born. Have nothing but memories in my head of her being so small. I dont want to crowd these memories with more so I’m snapping away at every moment so I can look at the pictures. Having a photographer for a sister-in-law I was thought this would be amazing but when her services where needed when my daughter was born she refused. This broke my heart more and I hope that 1 day I can make the difference to someone that she could have made to me but sadly didn’t. I understand how importat it is to capture memories and I I’m so glad to be follwing you on facebook to follow your memories in the hope that 1 day mine will be as good. Thanks so much for your inspiration. xxxx

So happy you finally got this all worked out:) Thanks for the opportunity! I recently bought your bohemian collection and would love to use it on photos from this camera! I am a newby at this :) Not sure if you are still wanting us to post on social media, but mine is still up from the last time! Last tweet:) http://twitter.com/#!/MelisRomeo!

Sarah Cone - December 18, 2011 - 6:32 am

I don’t know if my first comment went through ,sorry if this is a double post but it gave me an error and then put %20 in-between each word!! Here was my post….

Love looking at your work it really inspires me. I handmake hair accessories as well as many other items as well and I take pictures of each item to put up on my website however my camera is not the best. I have been looking into a Nikon to try to save up but that will be a long ways away. With a full time job 5yr old twins a 2yr old and my side hobby time is limited as well as funds. Looking at your pictures and actions puts me at peace and tells the world to stop and breathe for a moment. Thank you for this opportunity to enter to win this camera, I could use it to capture my little loves, they are growing up too fast!!

Kelly - December 18, 2011 - 6:32 am

And I stole your quote btw “I give more to get more to GIVE more” is my new motto. I hope that I can live up to it as well as you have! Merry Christmas, and A Happy New Year!

Guadalupe Hendon - December 18, 2011 - 6:35 am

Lidia,

Your actions and photog tips have been very helpful to me as a beginner in editing and photography.

Angela Handschumacher - December 18, 2011 - 6:35 am

Not sure if my first post made it, but the more I look at your pics, the more I want to take photos! Good Luck to everyone!

JACLYN LEIZEROWICZ - December 18, 2011 - 6:38 am

Amanda Walker Fleming - December 18, 2011 - 6:39 am

Wonderful story, thanks for sharing! I love your stuff and you are very talented. Winning this camera would be a dream come true for me. I’m currently struggling with finances and trying to get my business off the ground and the D90 is my dream camera. I used to use one when I worked with a photograph company and I fell in love. I currently have a D3000 and the upgrade would be much appreciated. Thank you again for hosting this contest, and good luck to everyone and to whoever wins!

Sarah Smith - December 18, 2011 - 6:41 am

I will gladly comment again and will glady share again on my FB page!! Awesome photos and an awesome giveaway!! Hopefully the new server can handle it :-) !!!

Jami Jeffcoat - December 18, 2011 - 6:44 am

I’m currently shooting with a D80 and have been looking to upgrade for a while. I just purchased a 50mm f/1.4 Nikkor lens yesterday and this would go great with it! Thanks so much for hosting this awesome giveaway!

Jennifer - December 18, 2011 - 6:44 am

Lidia,
You don’t know me and with 1918 comments as of right now, you probably never will, but I follow your blog and your facebook feed and you are a constant inspiration. I’m fairly new to the photography world but I just can’t get enough. I read as much as I can and am rarely without my camera but with three kids under 3.5 years old it’s a challenge! Following you helps tremendously and I am learning so much. It’s a strange thing to feel like you know someone, if only a little, when they don’t know you at all, but I’m truly grateful for that opportunity. I wish you more than the best and I hope that I can inspire the way you do some day. :) Jennifer
PS. It may have been a pain, but you should be pretty proud about crashing the server with your contest! It just goes to show how many people feel the way I do and follow and share your work.

Amy M. - December 18, 2011 - 6:44 am

I of course, love your beautiful work and actions. But more so love and appreciate your generosity, kindness and sincerecity…that we experience through your daily fb posts about life, family and your daughter. Thank you!

Cheyenne Maxson - December 18, 2011 - 6:45 am

Lidia, you are doing a very wonderful thing here. I cannot tell you how blessed I am to “know” you. You are so inspiring as a women, mother and photographer. A heart of gold is what you have. And I like so many other fans appreciate everything that you do for us. Helping us make our photos look amazing, awesome ideas for elf on the shelf, ours is named Buddy. Anyways I just want to tell you thank you for all you do. And good luck to everyone :)

Tina Whitsett - December 18, 2011 - 6:54 am

Hello, first off I loved your story. I am a single mom of three wonderful children. I love taking pictures, wanted to to take pics on the side to help out but the one nice camera I had broke. Well needless to say I have no camera now. I miss it, this would give me back some hope and I could get pics of my children again!!

Shanon Tessier - December 18, 2011 - 6:55 am

I would love this camera! Thanks for being so generous and giving it away! You are awesome! Posting on facebook again :)

Heather Flowers - December 18, 2011 - 6:55 am

I’m so excited to read the lucky persons reaction when the winner is announced!! I can’t believe you are giving away a nikon this amazing. Someone is going to have the best Christmas ever! You’re a great person and artist. Your photos and techniques amaze me! Merry Christmas! – Heather Flowers

Kristy Yetter - December 18, 2011 - 6:55 am

You are such an inspiration and I’ve learned so many things in the short time that I’ve been following you on facebook and on your blog. I think you’re an incredible woman for doing this type of giveway. And for sticking through with it even after all of the issues that have been going on! Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!! (PS…hope I win!)

Christi Mendez - December 18, 2011 - 6:56 am

Your enthusiasms and cheerfulness is contagious. As well as your spirit, especially the way you described digging into the nikon during your fight against cancer. It’s admirable and brings a smile to my face. So many of my friends and family have gone thru the same and yet often I feel it is them who are teaching the rest of us to stay strong and positive.

On another note- this giveaway is fantastic!! How exciting! I’d love to be the lucky one and I know the right person will win and enjoy the camera. Merry Christmas :)

Corinne Burke - December 18, 2011 - 6:56 am

I just got a new camera for christmas, but wanted to enter to pay it forward to someone who needs it if I win. You have inspired me to persue my interest in photography and for that I am greatful. You are an amazing woman with a large heart.

Sarrah M - December 18, 2011 - 6:56 am

Susan Herring-You are truly an amazing lady,you are and will always be someone I can say has been an inspiration to me, someone that can go threw everything that you have gone threw and still keep going every day with a smile on your face and giving everyone else hope and encouragement. When you yourself don’t feel the the greatest. I know this because I take care of people everyday and photography is just my passion. I have seen what Cancer can do to most and like I said you are one hell of an inspiration to all, and you have tought me never to give up on anything as long as it is in me to fight for no matter what. Thank you for reminding us what the true meaning of Christmas is all about. I hope you have a Wonderful Christmas, and I wish you peace,love, and happiness throughout the New Year.

Denise Rowell - December 18, 2011 - 7:27 am

I have been admiring your work for a while now. I take photos for a hobby and its only recently that you’ve shared more about yourself and its given a new meaning to the word “gifted”. I would be delighted to win the Nikon, I’m not sure I could make it do what you can, but I know I would enjoy it. Thanks and I hope You and your family have a Merry Christmas!!!

Jenn Ovenshire - December 18, 2011 - 7:27 am

Wowza! You have put so much work and effort into this give-away that you really deserve to get yourself something nice! Like I said in my last comment, I really hope that this camera goes to someone who could really use it. I know that my prized possession is my Sony a230, not because it’s something great or fancy or wonderful, but because it’s a dslr and it is the only thing we could afford at the time. Thank you again for all of your hard work!

Cheers and happy holidays! xo, Beth

Thank You so much, for doing this giveaway! I have NEVER won anything before in a contest and I’m really hoping that I will win this one. I had ALWAYS wanted a digital SLR camera (It never mattered to me if it was Canon or Nikon) but, I have never had the money to afford one. I had been praying that God will help me get the money for one, and I think this giveaway is my chance to be able to get one :) I also LOVE your work! You always make your photos so beautiful! :) I had started my own photography buiness (Nicole Lynn Photography) this past July and I have a camera but, it dosnt fit my needs( it was labeled as a digital SLR, but really it is a point n’ shoot, which really diapointed me and was misadvertised) So.. anyways, I hope that you pick me to be the winner for this beautiful camera :) I hope that you have a very Merry CHRISTmas and that God will continue to bless you! :)

I am a stay at home mom to two beautiful little girls and just starting photography as a hobby to contribute our family (and because I ABSOLUTELY love it). I would love to become a professional one day but most of the time that seems like just a silly dream. I saw your blog b/c someone posted about the contest, but am so thankful to have been able to read your story and know that all things are possible. Thank you! Merry Christmas to you and your family.

sandra dickinson - December 18, 2011 - 7:49 am

Last year I started taking a photography class at the local community college, along with marketing and advertizing, as a way of trying to find myself. A stay at home mom of two crazy kids I knew I needed to find myself and find a way to give back to my husband who works two full time jobs to support us. Photography has opened up my creative block and not only have I found myself, I have also become healthier and happier with my family and friends. Giving back has become a part of my growth and as I watch your post and enjoy your photos I see that photography has had that same impact on you. I’m so glad your doing the give away and hope you have a very Happy Holidays!

This is quite a giveaway!! Crashed your system, but also shows you just how much of a following you have. I’ve used your actions and watched tutorials and must thank you for showing your fellow photographers some tips rather than keeping them to yourself so you have that edge over ‘the other guy’. I’m in…would love a new camera!

Liesel - December 18, 2011 - 7:53 am

Wow! I’ve been following all of the *excitement* (or craziness) that’s been happening with this giveaway on fb :) But you seem like an amazing person, and I know you are an amazing photographer, thank you for being so generous. I’m also excited that it’s a Nikon, seems like most people are using Canon, and as a Nikon user this giveaway makes me feel a little less left out :) Thanks again!

Courtney Collins - December 18, 2011 - 7:53 am

My name is Courtney Collins. I’m having my third baby, Mac, in April, and we have no camera. I often borrow my dad’s nice camera and usually in overboard. 80 pictures of Halloween in just an hour or or so. I would love to win this one so I can take tons of pictures of Mack to share with my parents who just moved away(thus no camera to borrow), and for my husband who will most likely be out of the country. He hasn’t missed a birth yet, but if he has to, I don’t want to leave one moment un-captured. Thank you for the opportunity. :)

He had the opportunity to go to Alaska last year with his Nana and he got to borrow a Nikon. Through using this camera, he was able to see nature in a whole new perspective. He has been saving his allowance for 7 months trying to purchase a new Nikon. It would be a mother’s dream to win this camera and see that huge smile on his face! Thank you so very much!

Mrs.Lidia Bright,
You are one of the most inspirational people on facebook. I hope to one day meet you and tell you how much I truly appreciate all of your encouragement. I feel as though I have a second mom that lifts me up each time I read your posts. Thank you so much for taking your time to share with us these little blips from your life. Your foundation is so special, I hope to get involved somehow.I always felt a call on my heart to do something like that..I hope to learn more. Lidia this is a beautiful camera and I know it means so much to you I hope and I pray that who ever gets it treats it with the utmost care.Once again thank you so much for sharing! Please don’t ever stop!

P.S Thank you for answering my email about the Bohemian Symphony. I got the Elements version and absolutely love them SO SO much! I always want to show you how amazing they make the photos come to life but I never know how to tag oh so posh in them.

Marci Cottrill - December 18, 2011 - 8:13 am

I would love more than anything in the world to be able to win one of these. I havent been able to get a new camera since mine was stolen from me 2 years ago and Im using a very old camera now that takes the worst photos of my children.

Hope Jannusch - December 18, 2011 - 8:13 am

Let me start by saying what an incredible opportunity you are going to provide someone by presenting them with this exquisite camera! As you know, photography equipment is not cheap, and for me, this would be the big step that I desperately need to break into the photography business. I have enjoyed looking through your pictures and I can tell that your heart is really into what you do. I look forward to keeping up with your work and, someday, being able to share my own love for photography with others.
Thank you for your generosity and God Bless,
Hope Jannusch

Gail Jones - December 18, 2011 - 8:14 am
