    Well, since I don’t have a senior again till 2016, I’d have to go with the family package. I haven’t had our family portraits dine professionally in years! Plus I would like to find a more local person to do my kids senior photos in the future. Would love to win!!

    Jarret and I have known you for many years. You have become a very respected professional photographer. I love the work you have done for my Kinderhaven kids as well as our son.

    Jason Duchow Photography
    He’s the guy for me.
    Takin’ really cool pictures,
    Turnin’ average people in to action figures.
    This aint no average giveaway,
    It’s more like holiday pay on a regular day.

    If I win this contest,
    I can expect nothing but the best.
    Family portrait or learning session,
    That becomes the hard core question.

    A family photo for the win,
    Just let me know when you can begin!

    That right there is about as good as poetry gets from a publicly educated Idaho graduate of almost 11 years! Thanks for another awesome contest and prizes Jason. Here’s to another blessed year!

    Amy beaman says:

    Would absolutely love to win the family session!! You do amazing work and we have a little girl due beginning of August, would love to show the family and friends the new little one in some gorgeous family photos 🙂

  26. Jan Leas
    Jan Leas says:

    Jason is so creative.. We had him do our daughters engagement photos and wedding photos. He uses God’s creation in nature.. Light.. Clouds.. Water.. Shadows.. And captures a moment in time like no one else i know. I have an upcoming senior and my daughter is having her second baby so either a senior portrait or some pregnancy or new baby pictures (with big sister Molly) be great! I would not trust ANYONE else with a special occasion photo session.

    You are super creative! You take such great action sporting pictures. I have loved the ones you have taken of my son! I am excited to have you take my sons senior pictures! I would love for a senior package to given away or even a family package.

  31. Christine Parsley
    Christine Parsley says:

    Your photos are nothing short of AMAZING! I feel like so many of them tell a story about the person or people. You find just the right settings and props. Our family esp loves to see your son taking pics by your side. Since our house burned down five years ago we have realized how important and precious pictures. Unfortunately we were unable to get a family picture before my brother passed away the day after Valentines Day. If I won, I would love to give you the challenge of taking a picture if our entire family … Hopefully before my nephew is deployed again. I know you would do a great job and we would all so appreciate it! Bonus … We will then make sure you do our daughter’s graduation pics!! 😉 We will anyway!

  32. Jenn
    Jenn says:

    First, let me start off by saying your photography is amazing! Last year my children and I made the decision to pack up and leave our home after 4 years to join my husband upon his 2nd return and resting period from Iraq over in Eastern Montana where he works. This was due to family time not being compromised.
    If chosen I could choose a senior portrait package as I have an up and coming senior; whom of course I would bring to you, or the learning session, which my 14 year old has an extreme passion for. I work in corrections field and I am sure if my 14 year old were able
    to have a learning session with you it would keep their interests off of other things. Winning this would be a dream for me to allow my child to learn the that is needed and have them focus on something positive. Either way, keep doing the great work that you are.

  33. Suzy Gamma
    Suzy Gamma says:

    If I were To win this, I would be torn between a family photo session as our oldest daughter is going to be a senior and leaving us soon *sniff* or simply letting her have it for a senior photo experience. I have always been in awe of Jason’s eye for photography and I think it would be an amazing experience.

  34. Cindy
    Cindy says:

    Well, the practical side says a family session with Robert and I because our prayer card picture is at least twelve years old and includes our then little kids. (We now have an empty nest, might be a little past time?) My mom’s heart would like to win and give the prize to our daughter Katie so she could develop her photography skills with one one training. Thanks for the chance to win.

    Erica Currey says:

    We will be in Sandpoint in August and would love a family session. We haven’t had one in a while and it is time!

    I would love to win your family photo session. I love the sky backgrounds in your pictures they are so pretty and different then I’ve ever seen. I think you have an awesome eye and I love looking at all your pics. Keep up the good work!

  37. Paula Karr
    Paula Karr says:

    Love, love, love your photography! I remember when I first saw your photos from Cocolalla camps–so impressive. You have the ability to capture the personality of the people in your portraits.

    If I win, I would like the family photo session.

    Keep up the fabulous work and God bless.

  38. Robin (Liesche) Merrifield
    Robin (Liesche) Merrifield says:

    Jason, your work is impressive! I love photography and am quite the amateur. I’ve watched your work and your business flourish over the last few years. It’s nice to see high quality sports photos in our local paper here in Bonners. I’d love to see our admin bring you up for group photos, etc. Best of all, I’m proud to call you a fellow CHS alum. As for prize of choice, it’s a toss-up between the instruction (which I desperately need in regards to lighting and speed), and the family package. My husband and I have been married 7 years, and don’t have an updated photo of us as a couple (except for candids). Tough call… Thanks for sharing your great work!

  41. Melissa Irish
    Melissa Irish says:

    WOW, Jason! It doesn’t surprise me that you already have so many entries on here with such wonderful comments complimenting your work! You truly are deserving of the accolades! 🙂 If we won, we’d have you capture some of Levi’s Freshman Football season! Your action shots are truly a cut above the rest and it would be great to have his first year of high school football documented in only the way you can do it! Thanks for the opportunity to win such a great prize package and best wishes to all whom enter!

I have wanted to have my daughter get softball pictures for her recruiting folder and I have some ideas in mind that I feel only you could capture! Check out the YouTube video of the byu softball poster shoot!!! She has worked hard and having one of your photos for her profile would be sure to catch the eye of her future college coach! Fingers crossed for Hannah!

    Thank you to everyone who participated, I would loved to photograph every single one of you, but alas there can only be one winner and the winner is . . . . . Isabella Saw.

    Isabella is a foreign exchange student from Australia. She was a senior at Sandpoint High School but did not get senior photos taken, so prior to her soon return to Australia we are going to visit some of the locations that Sandpoint is known for to capture some great memories for her.
