Smile for a Cure Portrait Contest: 2014 Finalists!

All Winners

 

Each summer, we run an annual portrait contest called Smile for a Cure to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. For a $10 donation, you get a free 5×7 and a chance to enter your child’s portrait in one of the 3 age groups in our contest (babies, toddlers, and big kids).

This July, over $2500 was raised for this wonderful cause. A big “thank you!” to all who entered!

Our judges have selected the top image per studio in each category, totaling in 21 finalists. All will receive a gift card to Portrait Simple for at least $100. If they make it to the top 3, they’ll win a $500 or $1,000 gift card instead! The Grand Prize Winner will also receive a feature shoot with baystateparent Magazine!

Now it’s up to YOU to select the final three! Online voting is open now through Monday, September 29. Once voting is closed, and the top three are determined, the panel of judges will rank them, choosing a first and second runner up, as well as a Grand Prize Winner.

Please click your favorite image below in each category (don’t forget to click ‘VOTE’ at the bottom of each category.) Thank you for all your support and best of luck to all our finalists!!!!

Last month we had our 3rd Annual Bring Your Own Prop Contest in the studios. We love this contest because it gives our clients a chance to really be creative! We had a lot of great entries and chose one winner from each studio to receive a $100.00 Portrait Simple Gift Card.

Although we offer a ton of great props to enhance your images, we always encourage bringing in a personal item from home to make your session unique to your family.

Congrats to all of our winners! Thanks for your effort and creativity!

With Father’s Day right around the corner, we wanted to show you all our new templates for you to customize with Dad’s favorite faces. These card and collage templates are a great way to add something extra personal to Dad’s gift this year. It’s also a great reason to come in for portraits before summer gets too busy!

Featured Prop of the Week: Baby Chicks

All of our new spring props have been a huge hit this year, but our baby chicks have been the favorite among all of them. They have been especially popular when the bunnies aren’t received as well by your little ones…sometimes live animals just don’t work out! We love this addition to our prop catalog because not only is it cute, but it gives you that springtime feel. Easter is right around the corner! Check out some of our favorite images from the season!
