This year has been an exciting and fulfilling one for Rebecca Denton Photography!! It’s the year I took the plunge to do photography full-time so I can serve you better, and it’s also something I have wanted to do for many, many years.

A huge thank you to each and every one of my clients for trusting me to take beautiful photos of you.

Win a Beautiful Canvas for Your Home!

To celebrate, I’m sponsoring a special contest giveaway! I’ve selected 24 photos from different sessions throughout the year, and I will give away a free 16″ x 20″ canvas gallery wrap (heirloom quality, from my pro lab) with the photo of their choice to the couple or family who has the most votes before January 10.

How to Vote


Each person can receive one vote by leaving a comment below telling me what you love about the photo you are voting for and the name of the couple/family you are voting for. Comments that don’t have both of these things will not be counted.

You can receive an extra vote by “liking” my Facebook page in addition to posting your comment. Simply “like” my page (if you haven’t already) and then leave a comment saying which photo you’re voting for AND WHY so I can count your vote toward the correct photo.

  1. Deb Scally says:

    LOVE so many of these, but I think the standout is Benjamin “aka” Superman. His expression is priceless, he’s body language is joyful, and you captured the precise moment that makes this “flying” pose work–but still with those safe, parental hands ready to catch him. Kudos, Rebecca!

  2. Kim Lapidus says:

    I am voting for Biller family. The picture of Macie with the guitar in the grass. It combines the hippy side of Nashville with the sweetness and innocence of a child. Such a spectacular shot.

  3. Sara Satinsky says:

    This is hard for me because I know and love and lot of these families. I have to vote for Kayla and Caleb because the picture shows so perfectly how much they love ad care for each other. Sara

  4. Tara Biller says:

    I have to vote for my baby Macie. We absolutely love this shot of her and had so much fun doing this shoot with you Rebecca!

  5. Lindsay Brock Pierce says:

    Evie and Cora. The photo captures the essence of sisterly love. (I don’t actually know any of these people, so I am assuming that they are sisters.) So sweet and fun.

  6. Ashley Longenbaugh Herndon says:

    Amazing pic. Beautiful sky. Would be blessed on a large print.
