It hasn’t quite warmed up in Seattle yet, but here are a few ideas and some inspiration for your Summer sessions!
I’m so excited to announce the winner! There were a ton of cute kids and lots of votes, but ultimately Miles won. The winner has one week to contact me and claim their prize, otherwise it will go to the adorable child in second place.
I wish everyone could have won, so as a consolation I want to extend a special offer to every contestant: If you book a session with me by June 30, 2010 (doesn’t have to take place before then, just schedule it) I will give you HALF of your session fee as a print credit (essentially giving you a $75 session fee and $75 towards anything I sell).
Thank you to everyone involved! Whether you entered, voted, or both, this was a huge success and it would not have been so without you. The great interest in this contest has encouraged me to do this again next year. Keep checking back for specials and tips and enter again next May!
Amazingly, there was an almost equal number of girls and boys that entered the contest (one more boy entered at the last minute)! All of them are incredibly cute and I was impressed with the creativity of some, so I am very relieved that I will not be the one deciding who wins. There are 29 kids (ranging from gestating to 14 years old) for you to choose from and you get ONE vote, so choose carefully!
In some cases, siblings are listed on the same picture but will have separate voting choices. These pictures are all exactly as I received them, but I did resize them and sharpen them a little for your viewing pleasure.
Just as a reminder, here are the official rules from the original post:
And don’t forget how to get more votes counted toward your favorite kid!
These extra votes will only be counted if the comments are on THIS post. Comments on the original post detailing the contest rules will not be counted towards voting. You must also state WHICH CHILD you want your extra votes to go to.
Families, send a link to this post to your friends, families, coworkers, mailmen, baristas, and whoever else you can convince to vote for you.
And without further ado…
Let the voting begin!
So how do you get in on this sweet, sweet contest action? Well, I’ll tell ya! It’s pretty simple. You just need to email me a photo of your sweet and adorable offspring and include their age and name and what city you live in (this won’t be public; it is just because I like to know these things) in order to qualify. Read on for the official stuff.
Please post a comment with any questions you may have and I will answer them. Good luck! Now show me some awesome kids!
