Still trying to catch-up on blog posts (as usual!) Such a gorgeous location and family!
Spokane Family Photographer | Jaidean Baker Photography
Remember the Nursery Contest I had back in February? Well, I was able to meet up with the winner, sweet Coulson and his family, several months ago to photograph him and his awesome nursery! He was just too cute and his nursery was amazing!
Remember these cute little guys? Well, they are now 18 months old…BUT back when they were 12 months old I took some photos of them (with grandparents too – I love that!). Just finally getting to blogging their session from the fall.
First I want to thank everyone who entered their nursery into The Nursery Contest. All the nurseries are super cute (and babies too)! Take a look at the great nurseries and vote at the bottom! Voting is open through February 16th, 2014. Be sure to share with your family and friends and get them to vote too!
The winner will receive a complimentary mini-session with Jaidean Baker Photography focusing on nursery, baby and/or family. The session will last approximately 20 minutes and will result in 5-10 digital images. Winning session must take place by June 1, 2014. Regular session terms and conditions apply.
Winner will be notified on February 17, 2014 and winning nursery will be showcased on the blog once the session has taken place.
Voting times for the other participating photographers may vary, but be sure to check out their blogs and vote for your favorite nursery on them as well! So fun seeing all the beautiful nurseries!
PLEASE VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITE NURSERY (Poll at the bottom of the post)
If you answered yes to all three of these questions, I would love to see pictures. What’s in it for you? A chance to win a free mini-photography session featuring your baby and your nursery! I would like to see between 1-4 photographs of your space. At least one photograph must include your child in the nursery itself. I am looking for creative use of light, color and design elements. Images must be taken by you or someone in your family (meaning “please don’t submit images taken by another professional photographer.”)
All submissions must be received by midnight, February 7, 2014.
Entries will be judged by a panel of photographers who will narrow down the selection to 5 nurseries, if needed. The finalists will be posted on participating photographer’s blogs and the winner will be chosen via a public voting poll. Voting will occur between February 12-16, 2014. There are specific rules around voting that will be clarified during the voting round of the contest.
Winner will be announced on February 17, 2014. A runner-up prize will also be awarded. 1st prize will receive a free mini-session in baby’s nursery (a 20 minute session resulting in 5-10 digital images for download). The runner-up prize will receive a $100 credit toward a session booked in 2014. Winning session must take place before June 1, 2014. Winners must sign a release to allow their participating photographer to display images on blog, website, Facebook Business Page and any other print or web materials as deemed appropriate.
