Picture Mama: “Cool” photos for July’s contest


We’re in the thick of summer now, so our theme for July’s snapshot contest is “Keepin’ it cool.” So send us snapshots of your kids and/or teens playing in the pool, sprinkler, lake, water park, baby pool or even pool2.jpgchilling out with a popsicle or ice cream. Be creative! You may send up to 5 snapshots to gwen@nwaMotherlode.com each month.

Remember that the grand prize for the snapshot contest is a free photo session with photographer Melinda Worthington of MJW Photography. Click here to see her awesome shots of local kids. She’s a real pro when it comes to getting natural, fun shots of kids of all ages.

The winner will also receive a huge 16×20 wall print of her favorite shot from the photo session. (That usually costs major bucks, mamas! So send in your pictures, so you’ll have a shot at winning.)

The pictures featured here are snapshots sent in by local moms last summer. Hope they’ll inspire you to grab your camera and start clicking!
