My Beautiful Child Contest~Dandelions & Daisies {Mid Michigan Children's Photographer}

At the end of 2010 I did a fun Senior Comment Game on facebook and it was a HUGE hit!! Everyone that got involved had lots of fun and turned it into a great contest :) Since it was so much fun, I think it's time for another fun contest, don't ya think :) Since the seniors have had their fun, it's time for the parents to have a little fun and show off their beautiful children :) Right now in Michigan it's cold and winter is in full swing, which leaves everyone hoping for warm weather!! In the next few months Spring will be on it's way and out will pop one of my favorite things....the dandelions :) Yes, I know not everyone loves the dandelions, but I do and children and dandelions just go hand in hand do they not :) So, as I was thinking of a contest name, I kept coming back to the fact that every year I say I am going to do little mini sessions for "Dandelions and Daisies" and then it just gets pushed to the back burner. I have 2 beautiful locations for both of these types of sessions and when you add children to them it makes for some magical photographs :) So to cheer up this cold winter month, and give us something to look foreword to this Spring our Children's Contest is going to be called....My Beautiful Child Contest~Dandelions & Daisies :) And if you win, you can choose to do your session when one of these fields are in their peek bloom OR if these aren't your thing, no worries, I have lots of other locations to choose from!! And the best part is, all you have to do to play is enter your precious little ones photo and start collecting votes :)

*Official Information and Rules are Below :)

{To enter the contest}
Email an image that YOU have taken (no professional images please) of your kid(s) to and I will post it to the Contest Album OR if facebook will let you, you can upload the photo yourself to the Hayley Hamlin Photography Fan Page by finding the Dandelions & Daisies (My Beautiful Child Contest) Album and clicking on "add photo". Please do NOT upload it to the main wall, if it will not let you add it directly to the album, please email it to me.

Once your image is in the album please tag yourself in the photo and then share the link to Hayley Hamlin Photography facebook page on your personal facebook page. Make sure you ask your friends and family to go to my fan page and vote for your image. They vote by “liking” the image, they can comment as well, but only "likes" count. :) You can get creative and share the link however you want, the more you share... the more chances you have to win!!

Again, please do NOT upload your photo to the main wall or have people leave comments there, those will NOT count. Also, make sure they know they have to “like” Hayley Hamlin Photography first to be able to vote. At the end of the contest the entry with the most "likes" wins!! It's that simple :)
