Picture Mama: Send your snapshots for our contest!


Happy Friday, mamas! Just wanted to remind you that you’ve got 11 more days to submit photos this month for our snapshot contest. The August theme is “hanging out.” Yesterday we received the snapshot you see above of a little boy hanging out by the pool and a butterfly hanging out on his nose! Once in a lifetime kind of snapshot, don’t ya think?

Your “hanging out” photos can be of almost anything — kids literally hanging around in trees, on monkey bars, in a baby sling, or just hanging out at home on the sofa.We bet you’ve already got quite a few photos that would fall into this category.

Remember that the winner of the snapshot contest gets a FREE photo session with photographer extraordinnaire, Melinda Worthington of MJW Photography. (Click here to see her work.) And the winner will also get to choose her favorite shot of the session and get a huge 16×20 wall print of it. To enter the contest, send up to five photos per month to this address: gwen@nwaMotherlode.com. Photos are judged on emotional impact, or, as we like to call it, “the Awwwwww or Wow factor.” You might even find a few of them featured in our Polaroid frame at the top of the homepage!
