For our inaugural blog post, we wanted to share with you the results of our first “Summer Living Photo Contest”. We invited all of our Charter homeowners to submit photos of their homes decked out for the summer, and we were so impressed by the quality (and quantity!) of entries we received. We here in the Charter Homes office had a great time choosing our favorites – it was definitely tough narrowing the field from the more than 80 great entries we received.
Today, we’d like to showcase a few of our favorites. Don’t miss our winning photo at the bottom of this post!
This photo caught our eye because it combined a striking close-up of flowers with a glimpse of Charter Homes’ Veranda neighborhood behind the courtyard: beautiful.
Our next photo features a beautifully decorated front porch – one of Charter Homes’ signature features. Who wouldn’t want to enjoy summer from this lovely porch?
Our third finalist featured another Charter Homes front porch – this time with beautiful use of sunlight off the windows.
Our last finalist charmed us by sharing a very special moment: the children of brand-new Charter homeowners exploring their new yard. Sold!
Not to brag, but we’ve got some pretty talented Charter homeowners, right? We like to think they also had a great subject to photograph.
A Few Other Excellent Photos
Our marketing team had a tough time cutting down the field to four finalists and a winner! That said, here are a few other great shots we just have to share with you.
While this photo technically wasn’t eligible (it was taken in the spring), we had to share this lovely shot captured after a spring storm:
Another one of our favorite photos was taken by the spouse of one of our Charter Homes employees. Too cute!
And finally, we were tempted to create a special finalist category for this photo: “Best Use of Lots of Beautiful Flowers on Back Porch”!
The Winner! (Drumroll, please…)
Our very favorite photo combined a number of elements: beautiful landscaping, great framing, and that special “homey” touch. Congratulations to Sandy King for her wonderful photography skills!
Thanks again to our wonderful Charter homeowners for their fabulous entries. Enjoy your summer at Charter Homes!
