If you are wondering what I mean by Birth Story Movie, take a moment to watch this short testimonial.
So here's how the giveaway will work:
I would like for you to send me an email (ceci @ ceci-jane.com) and let me know a little bit about your family and why you would love a movie documenting your baby's birth story .
Be sure to also include:
Your name, where you will be giving birth, a picture of you and your spouse (or whomever will be along side you during your labor), and just anything else you would like to share regarding your birth plan.
Please keep it under 200 words if possible. ;)
*** Email submission deadline is Sunday, May 8th at 10:00pm***
A group of finalists will be selected by a panel of "judges," the finalist along with their photo and writings will be posted in an album on my facebook fan page. I will only post your first name and your wording, but not your place of birth or last name. If you are chosen as a finalist you can contact all your friends and family and ask them to "like" your photo. They will first need to "like" Ceci Jane - Birth & Lifestyle Photography before they are able to "like" your photo entry. The photo with the most "likes" will win the Birth Story Giveaway!!
*** Finalist will be posted Tuesday, May 10th at 10:00pm***
Voting will end Saturday, May 14th at 10:00pm. I will count all the votes and the winner will be announced on Sunday!!
FINE PRINT DETAILS
1. Your chosen place to birth must be within 50 miles from 75137 zip code.
2. Your estimated due date must be between June 15th and August 15th, 2011.
3. You must fill out a model release form granting me permission to post your birth story movie and images on my blog and/or other promotional materials (I will not post your movie until you've had a chance to see it and approve it!).
4. I will be on call for your child's birth 2 weeks prior to 2 weeks after your EDD. I will arrive at your chosen place of birth when you are in active labor and will remain there through your baby's newborn screening.
5. You will receive a DVD with your 5-6 min edited HD Birth Story Movie and any images I am able to capture while I am there.
6. This giveaway has no monetary value and is subject to Ceci Jane's contract.
7. In the unlikely event that I miss your birth, I will gladly come and do a "Bringing Baby Home" or "Meeting the Family" Movie at your home to document your baby's first days. I always do my very best to not miss a birth, so unless I am deathly ill or your baby comes in a hurry, this should not be an issue.
8. You MUST verify with your OB or Midwife to confirm weather your place of birth will allow me to film.
