Picture Mama: Cute kids in Northwest Arkansas!

"Not everybody can pull off this kind of hat. On me, it TOTALLY works."

Maybe there’s something in the water around here. Because you’ve gotta admit… the kids in our neck of the woods are just cuter than average. We’re just sayin’. If you’re skeptical, just take a look at some of these photos we’ve received in the past few weeks for our snapshot contest.

"Sharks don't swim up on the beach, right??"

Speaking of our snapshot contest, remember you can submit up to 5 photos per month, and the contest runs through the end of August. So keep your cameras handy and then send your cute photos to us at gwen@nwaMotherlode.com.

"Do these frames make my face look small?"

The winner of the snapshot contest (chosen at the end of August) will win a free photo session with Melinda Worthington of MJW Photography plus a huge 16×20 wall print of her favorite shot from that session. Woo-hooo!

"Hey sis, has anybody ever told you how CUTE you are?"
