Well I narrowed down all 47 entries to just 5 so far. It was SO hard because I really did love so many of them. Let me also say that I was expecting mmmmmm....maybe 20 entries so 47 was just amazing! It was a little overwhelming to say the least, but I am so grateful that 47 people found my clothes worth photographing! It still blows my mind that I make children's clothes and am--somewhat--successful at it. Now if I could just keep this fabric addiction under wraps I might actually make some money....but that's a different post for a different day.
Back to the Top 5 Finalists (in no order):
Angels Among Us Photography by Joie Dawson. Creative and unique name and adorably unique photos. How cute is this photo? I mean really?!? Can this little boy be any cuter? Visit her Facebook Page here.
Jennifer Marie Photography by Jennifer Stoehr. This was the second entry I received in the contest and I fell in love with it immediately then. The colors are perfect the girl is beautiful and I really love the photo journalistic style this reminds me of. Visit her Facebook Page here.
Forty Toes Photography by Jennifer Anderson-Wiggins. I love that her name comes from her four kids and she uses her too-cute-for-words daughter to model clothes. And let me tell you this girl can model! She is definitely no amateur! I can't tell you exactly why I love this photo--maybe because there is too much to write about--I love the clothes, I love the colors, I love the rustic background...I'll stop there. Visit her Facebook Page--where she is ALSO having a HUGE a giveaway for hitting 3000 fans--here.
S.Dawn Photography by Sindi Parent. She just has a way with capturing these kids personalities! I look at her photos and I feel like I know what the kids are like. And how does she get them all to smile?!? Oh yeah, best part?!? From Michigan! Woohoo! Visit her Facebook Page here.
Creative Pose by Terra Yates. ::sigh:: Love her! She is so gracious and her photos really speak for themselves. This photo is beyond gorgeous and she went against the norm of sending in a photo of kids...that was gutsy! I like it :o) But honestly, this photo is practically perfect and I completely understand why she sent this in as her favorite photo. Visit her Facebook Page here.
So that's it! That's my Top 5! Check back on Friday when I announce the winner!!! Good luck to the five photographers you all are amazing and I swear to you it's gonna break this little heart to choose just one.
