Snapshots from Christmas 2015

Local Snapshots Category Logo 2016We know your phones or camera memory cards are bursting with new pictures right now, which means you have plenty to submit to the Local Snapshots contest. If you haven’t entered yet but would like to share a photo, the deadline has been extended to January 31st.

The winner gets a 16×20 photo (your choice) printed on canvas and gallery-wrapped by Scott Frame & Art. It’ll be gorgeous and ready to hang directly on your wall. (I have several gallery-wrapped canvas prints from Scott Frame & Art and they are beautiful!)

You can submit up to 5 photos (per month). Just make sure they are not copyright-protected photos by a professional photographer. Send photos to

We are LOVING these photos shared by local mom Kathleen. Aren’t her kids gorgeous? And she really knows her way around a camera. (We took a photography class with Kathleen years ago and, needless to say, she was the star student.)

All I want for Christmas are eyes as gorgeous as these…
“Mom, why am I the only one who doesn’t get to read the words and turn the pages?”
Move over, Santa. Now there’s something cuter.
“No snow? Okay, I’ll settle for bubbles. Lots of bubbles.”
“Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse (or a puppy.)”

Here’s a sweet shot from our friend Kristy, whose son has been SO photogenic from Day 1. The camera loves this kid.

Time for a little Christmas snuggle with kitty.
