Picture Mama: September Finalists Announced


It’s time to announce which photos (submitted during September) our judges picked as the cream of the crop! It’s always a very tough choice. The first one, pictured above, is one of the cutest jailbirds we’ve ever seen. Check out his huge baby blues!

Just in case you didn’t already know, our Picture Mama judges will choose one photo (submitted during the months of August, September and October) as the grand prize winner. That winner will receive a FREE photo shoot with photographer Mindy Worthington of MJW Photography, who sponsors our photo gallery. (If you haven’t seen Mindy’s work, you MUST go to her blog and check it out. It’s a fun website, and the photos will really impress you.) Not only does the grand prize winner get the free photo shoot, she will also get a HUGE wall print (16 x 20) of her favorite shot from that session. This package would cost you hundreds if you paid for it out-of-pocket.

HOW TO ENTER: If you’d like a shot at winning the Photo Gallery grand prize, just send us a few of your favorite kid pictures. You can submit up to 5 photos per month. Send them to gwen@nwaMotherlode.com. Can’t wait to see what comes in!

Our last September finalist, pictured below, is a beautiful big sister who is holding her brand new twin baby brothers for the very first time. What a sweet moment captured on film. Congrats to the mamas who sent in these photos. You’re one step closer to the BIG prize. Keep watching the website for news about the grand prize winner, which will be announced early next month.
