first comes love, then comes marriage…

and I’m sure you know what’s next!

I had the pleasure of seeing my past wedding clients, Tracy & John, for some maternity portraits at my studio last week. They are just one of a good number of clients who are either currently pregnant or have recently had a baby!

Congrats to you both again! It was great to chat with you afterwards also!

I’d like to extend my congratulations to:

recent births – Shana & Elliott (baby boy), Kasey & Andy (baby girl), Maria & Fran (baby girl)

expecting parents – Shannen & Nick, Ashley & Tony

If I’ve missed you, let me know! I’ll add you to the list!!

VOTE! — kids in hats

This is the official voting page for the January child portrait contest – “kids in hats”.

Voting is simple. Each entry picture will be numbered by a number above each photo. Only one vote per entry allowed per person/computer. Votes come from comments. Votes are counted by comments/responses left at the bottom of this post. When leaving a comment/vote, you will be asked for your name & email. Takes just a few seconds.

Also, if you haven’t commented on my site before, you may receive a message that states your comment is in moderation. All that means is I need to approve it for the site. Once approved, your comment will appear under this post.

Simply enter the number of the photo you like to vote for and leave an actual comment if you’d like! Separate images of siblings will be combined to avoid any sibling rivalries when they get older. ; )

Voting ends January 31st, 2010 @11:59pm.

All votes/comments will be tallied on February 1st, 2010. Winner will be announced during the first week of February.

Clicking on each photo will open up a gallery to each child’s full image gallery. You will be asked for a password – if you know the families & children, you’ll know the password. Prints may be purchased through each gallery.











So there you have it, the eleven children in the portrait contest! Now it’s your turn to vote for the winner! Everyone can vote. Unfriendly comments will not be tolerated and will be deleted.

**It has come to my attention that some computers are not able to submit your comments/votes. Most likely a security feature on the computer being used. Sorry, I do NOT have any control over that and I am not responsible for it. I apologize for this inconvenience.**

***REMINDER – Please vote once. Do not use multiple email addresses that you may have. Also, do not copy/paste email addresses from your address book and try to enter them within a few minute timeframe. It’s VERY obvious and I can see that those email addresses are from the same computer. I can understand a husband & wife from a household voting, but when I see 15-20 different people – with different last names & emails from one computer – voting within a few minutes, I will not count those votes. There has been over 60 votes of which I will not count and will not show up below due to that fact.***
