With Easter comes eggs, and with eggs comes baby chicks! This adorable prop is just the perfect amount of springtime. Pair it with a witty saying on one of our chalkboards and you have the perfect Spring photo! This is also perfect if you come in for bunny photos and your child isn’t too keen on the idea of posing with a REAL live animal.

This week is the last full week before Easter and we still have some appointments available! Its not too late to book your session today! See you soon!

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!!!!
