Featured Prop of the Week: Baby Chicks

chicks1

 

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!

Smile for a Cure Portrait Contest: 2013 Finalists!

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, almost $5,000 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 26 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 cover shoot with baystateparent Magazine!

Now it’s up to YOU to select the final three! Online voting is open now through Monday, September 9, 2013. One vote is allowed per household. 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.

CLICK HERE TO PLACE YOUR VOTE!

Good Luck to ALL of our finalists!
