{GIVEAWAY} Awesome Camera Straps!

6:58 AM

Out of the blue I got a sweet facebook message from Lori. Up until this point I had never heard of Lori but she makes and sells camera straps. In her message she asked if I would be interested in giving away some of her camera straps to my wonderful blog readers and to the people who attend my workshops. My immediate reaction was "How thoughtful of her... but I don't like cutsey camera straps!" I would never want to promote something that I wouldn't actually buy myself. But I clicked on the link to her etsy shop just to take a look.

Boy was I happily surprised!

Lori's camera straps were not at all what I was imagining. They were streamlined, unique, extremely well-made, and came in a variety of "non-cutsey" fabrics. I would definetely buy one of these camera straps! So I quickly wrote her back and graciously accepted her offer.



Here are some things I love about Lori's straps:
- They are extremely well-made.
- The stitching quality is durable, precise, and long-lasting.
- the straps are actual straps. They are not a cover that go over your present strap. That means no bulkiness.
- The ends of the straps are made of real leather.
- There are 24 designs to choose from. Lots of variety.
- She offers FREE domestic US shipping!
- She packages the straps so cute when she sends it to you. (I'm a sucker for cute packaging!)






(Thanks to my friend, Natalie, who became my last-minute model!)


Okay...on to the giveaway!!

Wow! I am really loving her style! I can't get my camera strap, that came in the box, to stay on my camera. Which is REALLY bad when you are running around with 4 kids! :/

I love that it's not a cover! One less thing to fiddle with as I try to follow your lead and stop shooting in Auto :)
