6th Annual Bring Your Own Prop Contest

Every year, we run a contest where we allow our clients to come in with a special item from home to incorporate into their session. The idea originally came about because we thought “What better gift for Dad than seeing his kids photographed with his favorite item??” It was a way to make Father’s Day even more special for Dad. We’ve had a lot of fun with these submissions over the years. Below is a collection of a few examples of our contest submissions. You can also view last years contest, and the year before! As you can see, it doesn’t even have to be “Dad” related. It can just be something fun that is special to your child at the moment that you want to remember forever. Use your imagination!

We would love to see what you come up with this year!! Call to book your appointment today!
