An Exciting Month Ahead!

We're busy as bees working on getting the New Studio ready for our Grand Opening! If you are on our mailing list - We will be sending information out soon about some exciting Events and our Mother's Day Special!

Also - I've gotten several comments on the blog, and a few emails about the winners of the Fresh Faces contest. I'm sorry if you are disappointed about who won - The winners were chosen by the most about of UNIQUE VOTES they received. We did not disqualify anyone for repeat voting in one day (and there was alot of this) - instead the polling website alerted us to duplicate votes by the same IP address and we deleted those. All of the children entered in the contest were adorable, and it was a long process between Shane, Myself, and suggestions from our Photographer friends around the world - to chose the top 13.

Please don't be a sore loser - We are planning a Special event JUST for the finalists of the contest that did not place - and a special coupon will be sent out to ALL that entered. We look forward to meeting everyone!

Thanks for all of your support! If anyone still has any questions about the contest - Please email us at
