Isabella. Sophistication. {Vermont Senior Photographer}

Poise. Class. Sophistication. Beauty. A future in opera. Ms. Isabella, with the most beautiful name that just rolls off the tongue of any opera lover: Isabella Lamadriz. I love just saying it. She looks and sounds the part of a star. Remember me when you hit it big, okay?

Nebraska Photographer Hits it Big on the Today show

Love this photog's work. And you know what, I do newborn work like this! Moms to be, if you would love to have photographs like this of your precious teeny fresh human, please call to book your session now. In honor of Tracy's HUGE success, I will be offering a free session for any newborn under 14 days old if you book between now and February 28th. All other contract provisions will apply.

And check out the fabulous work this photographer does- IF you can get on her site, which apparently, after her Today show debut, her overloaded server rebelled and it became quite the feat.

Congratulations Tracy!

Cutest Kid Everrrrrrrr Contest!!!!

Okay folks, let me first introduce the judges to you. (Click here to visit the PC Blog) They are my very dear photographer friends who live all across this great country and even as far away as the UK. They are all professional photographers, Moms, and great friends. I sent them all the entries and they narrowed it down to the top 3. They said it was a super hard job and I think they wish they could have named all of these adorable kids the cutest. So, without further adieu, here are the top three finalists:


Family 2:

Family 3:

How this works:
It's simple. The Child/ Family with the most comments wins. You have to get as many (unique) people to comment on this entry to win the gift certificate and the Free Session. Commenters, you must sign in, anonymous commenters do not count because I have to be able to see that they are from unique users. So sign in (its easy), put the family # of your vote in your comment and then feel free to say something nice about how cute your choice is. All commenters who vote for the winning image will receive a free 5x7 ($45) if you book a session within 48 hours of the end date of the contest which is 9/17.

All comments must be posted by midnight on the 17th of September. You must have at least 15 comments to win.

I want to thank every family who entered an image. Your kids are all beautiful, just beautiful. Some of the images made me laugh and others made me go, "awwwww." I know many of them and they are adorable, funny, smart, silly, creative kids all around. What a privilege it is to know them and to have (in some cases) their families as clients. As a special thanks to all who entered, please take $50 off a session fee if you would like to book a fall or winter session, and a free 8x10. If you have already had a session this year and would like to pass your win on to a friend, I would be happy to give you a gift certificate. Sessions must be booked by 9/19/09.

Now...go get all your friends to comment!!!!!!!!

Beauty Comes in Threes {New Hampshire Photographer}

The relationship between Moms and Daughters is often strained, uncomfortable, out of sorts. It is a rare thing to see a Mom and two daughters who just BE when they are together. They dance, they laugh, they hug, they smile, they give some sass to the photographer. They like each other. Isn't that cool? I love it. Thanks for sharing your Friday evening with me, beautiful dancing ladies.

Check out the New Contest : $200 Prize!!!!

Who's the Cutest Kid EVERRRRRR??

Let's Have Some Fun! How About I Give You $200?

Do you have an adorable (and cooperative) child between the ages of 6 months and 10 years? Would you love to get a FREE custom portrait session, which would be like me handing you a $100 bill to spend on artwork? Would you ALSO like to get a $100 gift certificate to Scooter Britches to outfit your cutest cutie pie? Well then, this is the contest for YOU.

Entering is super duper simple. Send me a web sized image of your cutest cutie pie. Write on the e-mail that you are giving me permission to use your image and that you are the photographer and have permission to use the image. The image must be a snapshot, no professional photographer images please. My Chicks will narrow it down to the top three images. Then you will need to get as many (unique) people to leave a comment as possible. The image with the most user comments wins. You must have at least 15 comments to win. Every person who comments will be given a FREE 5x7 if they book a session within 24 hours of the end of the contest. (A $45 value)

Deadlines: Get your image to me by September 8th. Top three will be on the blog by September 10th. Comments closed on September 12th at midnight. Winner announced on the blog September 13th. Winning Session must be booked prior to November 10th.

The Fine Print: I get to choose the location and the setup. You need to be willing to meet all provisions of my contract including the minimum order. Please plan on having fun and getting great images for your Christmas cards and Christmas gifts.

And let me just say, it's a good thing my kid isn't eligible!
