Nursery Contest! * Maryland Baby Photographer

Is your baby under 2 years old?
Do you have a super cool nursery?
Would you be interested in winning a free session and mini-print package?

If you answered yes to all three of these questions, we would love to see pictures. What’s in it for you? A chance to win a free photography session featuring your baby and your nursery! We would like to see between 1-4 photographs of your space. At least one photograph must include your child in the nursery itself. We are looking for creative use of light, color and design elements. Images must be taken by you or someone in your family (we are really saying “please don’t submit images taken by another professional photographer.”)

All submissions must be received by midnight, March 5th, 2010.

Entries will be judged by a panel of photographers who will narrow down the selection to 5 nurseries. The finalists will be posted on the Shey Marin Photography blog and the winner will be chosen via a public voting poll. Voting will occur between March 7-March 13, 2010. There are specific rules around voting that will be clarified during the voting round of the contest.

Winners will be announced on March 15, 2010. There will also be 2nd and 3rd place prizes awarded. Winning session must take place between March 18 – April 18. Winners must sign a release to allow Shey Marin Photography to display images on blog, website, Facebook Business Page and any other print or web materials as deemed appropriate.

    Is there a mileage limitation for this contest in terms of how close we have to live to you?

  2. admin says:

    GREAT question Kendra! I am using my normal mileage restrictions of within 45 miles from the Frederick zip code of 21710 – but if you’re a bit over that we can make it work! I travel to the Baltimore/DC metro region and as far out as the suburbs of Frederick.
