best of 2011 | east texas baby and child photographer

I had so much fun doing it last year, I decided to go for it again!  That’s right, it’s the now “annual”, Favorite Portrait Contest!  I had an unbelievable 2011, full of so many great families, babies, kiddos, and seniors – it was nearly impossible to narrow it down to my top 30 favorites.  Last year it was the top 25, but I just couldn’t narrow it down past thirty.  I did force my husband to help me get to 30, because honestly, I get way too emotionally attached  🙂  As with last year, some are favorites because of technical aspects that appeal to me (for example: lighting or color), others I love for the emotion that was captured, and a few, just on the cute factor alone.

So, now that I’ve tortured myself over it, I’m turning it over to you, my clients, friends, and random strangers who like to look at pretty pictures, to decide on your Favorite Portrait of 2011.   Are you ready?!?

Here’s how it will work:

1.  Each person may vote for one image, one time.  Please, please follow this rule in the sake of fairness to everyone who had an image chosen.  Pretty please with sugar on top?

2.  To cast your vote, leave a comment in the comment section below.  Make sure you are commenting under this particular blog post (contest time), and use the identifying image number located above each image.

3.  As “extra credit”, facebook fans will be given ONE extra vote.  So, if you aren’t already a facebook fan, hop over and click “like”, then come back here and let me know about it by leaving a comment.  If you are already a facebook fan, let me know that as well so you can be given your additional vote.

4.  Feel free to share the contest with friends and family.  A little self promotion of your image is totally fine (as long as they follow the rules!).

Here are the prizes:

First Place:  (1) beautiful 16×20 gallery wrapped canvas of the winning image (valued at $475)

Second Place:  (1) beautiful, mounted 11×14 print of the second place image (valued at $100)

Third Place:  a handy-dandy $50 print credit to be used at a future session

Voting will end on Friday, January 20th @ 5 p.m. (cst)

Here are the selected images, have fun voting!
