Local Snapshots: Kids in Northwest Arkansas

Local Snapshots Category Logo 2016Mamas, our Winter Snapshot Contest is in full swing, and we KNOW your phone is full of great pics from Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Let us show them off for you here on the website, and one of those shots might help you score a FREE favorite snapshot printed on a 16×20 gallery-wrapped canvas, prepared by Scott Frame & Art. It’ll be ready to hang on the wall, turning your favorite faces into the best kind of wall decor.

Here are a few of the shots that have come in recently. We are LOVING this cutie who apparently cut down her own tree last month and hauled it home on top of her little blue car. She is the definition of adorable.

Fall Snapshot Winner Announcement!

Local Snapshots Category Logo 2016A huge thank you to all the moms who submitted great photos for our Fall Snapshot Contest. We’re so glad we get to ship all your amazing snapshots over to the judges because it would be SO HARD to pick just one favorite. But after careful consideration, the judges have selected a winning picture for the Fall Snapshot Contest. And the winner is….

pumpkin-hugger1Congratulations to local mom Laura Guenthner who shared this sweet pumpkin-hugging baby with us! Laura said this is one of her favorite shots of her daughter, Ava, who was about 15 months old at the time this shot was taken. Here’s what Laura said about the picture:

“We had recently been to a pumpkin patch for the first time, and she knew the drill… choose your favorite and pick it up to take home. This pumpkin happened to be part of the decor at a lovely fall wedding we were attending near Branson. She was just determined to pick it up!”

It really is a picture worthy of a postcard. The winner will receive a 16×20 gallery-wrapped canvas prepared by our friends at Scott Frame and Art. Congrats!

The Winter Snapshot Contest is now open, so keep that in mind when you’re shooting all those Christmas and New Year snapshots in the coming weeks. We’d love to see some of your favorite pictures.

HOW TO ENTER: Just send up to 5 photos per month to gwen@nwaMotherlode.com. Judges will select a winning shot at the end of February. We’re looking forward to seeing your pics!
