As the mother of three growing children, I always go to Rack Room Shoes to buy footwear for my family. Daily BOGOs and quality shoes for the whole family – it doesn’t get much better than that for a busy mom! Last year I happened to be shoe shopping when I saw an entry form for a contest that caught my attention.
I decided to submit a few of my favorite family photos. I enjoyed the opportunity to sift through some old snapshots, but figured that would be the end of it.
I had forgotten all about the entry until we received a phone call from a Rack Room representative. To be honest, I thought it was a joke!
At first I thought they would just want to feature the kids, but my husband, David, and I were also included in the photo shoot. I had no idea what to expect, but it was a great time. I enjoyed every minute of it!
We were treated like movie stars as soon as we arrived in Charlotte. Each day we got our hair and make up done, played on set and got to try on lots of shoes. I remember waking up one morning thinking, “I could get used to this!” The Rack Room Shoes team was so welcoming and really treated us as part of the family.
I think David and I will always remember this experience and the looks on our kids’ faces during the shoot – priceless! (I’m not sure who enjoyed the experience more, them or us.) All in all, I have to say I’m thankful I picked up that form in the Rack Room Shoes store that afternoon, or I would have missed out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to spend quality time with my family.
So, if you are considering entering, I say go for it! What do you have to lose? We certainly gained more than we could’ve ever imagined. Below are a few pictures from the shoot, and you can also see us online at www.rackroomshoes.com and in stores at all 400 locations. Although I’m still getting used to seeing my family’s faces on the Rack Room Shoes’ website and signage every time I go into the store, this has certainly been an experience we will never forget!
