Attention past & current 2010 child portrait clients!

One of my print suppliers, Miller’s Professional Imaging, is holding a nationwide baby & child portrait contest in which the Grand Prize winner will receive $5000! Any past 2010 portrait client of mine is also eligible to enter an image taken from earlier this year.

I will be holding a few dates during the next three months where new clients can sign up for a in-studio session also. I am limiting the amount of sessions to ten per month. First come, first serve basis. Clients will have the option of in-studio or on-location sessions. Sign up below!

Here’s some info regarding the contest:

There are three rounds left for submissions: April 1-21, May 1-21 & June 1-21. Each round will last for one month.

For each qualifying round, the top five winners will be selected from the four categories and will receive a studio sample of their winning image. These winning portraits will be entered into the Final Round, which takes place during the month of July. The Final Round will be judged online by a panel of esteemed photographers. First, Second, and Third places, as well as two Honorable Mentions, will be announced for each category! Cash prizes for these winners include $2,000 for First, $1,000 for Second, $750 for Third, and $500 for each Honorable Mention.
