BabyTalk Cover Contest

I'm entering Olivia in a Cover Contest for a Baby magazine! The picture has to be from within the past month (so I can't use the crockpot picture). I've selected some finalists that qualify, but I can only use one! I need your help! Your vote counts! Just like it did when I was picking out my wedding dress and the name for my child! Don't let me down!

Picture #1 - Fuzzy Cape
Olivia received this hand-crocheted (sp?) cape as a baby shower gift. We found it, and she had fun modeling it for the camera.


Picture #2 - "I Dressed Myself!"
Olivia leaned into the laundry basket, picked out this outfit, and wouldn't let go.


Picture #3 - Exploring Poppop's Chin
When Poppop came to visit, Olivia was scared at first. But curiosity got the best of her in the end.


Picture #4 - "...Makes Bathtime So Much Fun!"
Today at bathtime, Josh just couldn't resist photographic evidence of this historical cuteness.


Picture #5 - Standing Pretty
Olivia has become quite good at standing and walking - she needs only a finger to hold onto for balance. Unless, of course, both her hands are occupied with a granola bar wrapper.


Picture #6 - LIttle Bit O' Attitude
Just in case the judges get tired of looking at little angels all day long...


So vote now! I have to enter these before March 1 because some of the pictures were taken February 1 and they can't be more than a month old! I'm trusting your judgement!

I vote for #3.

I vote "Exploring Poppop's chin". "Fuzzy cape" would be second.

Oooh it's hard... You probably also want to look at photographic elements, in addition to baby cuteness. That being said, #3 is the best (the way it's framed, etc.). However, I like the ones better where Olivia is looking at the camera - #1 and #2 and my second two favorites. The photographic elements in those two pictures aren't as good, and so the picture overall isn't as strong. Therefore, my vote is still #3. :-)

To clarify - this picture will not appear on the cover. It will just determine what everyone else already knows: that Olivia is cute enough for a photo shoot for the cover, thereby winning the $3000 Babies R Us shopping spree.

#4, tub pictures are great, those or ones that include animals and since i don't concider josh an animal, then the tub one has to win. I saw that contest and thought of you, I know you'll atleast win the shopping spree!!! wouldnt that be fun? You have to go with #4

Jes said...

#3 is second, and I like the fuzzy cape, however as far as photographic elements go, since it has part of someone's body in it, it kinda makes for a bad background.. or else that one would be good too.

I like #2 best, especially after reading your commentary. But #5 is a really great picture, too. I just love that smile!!

Can I crop it for you before you send it in?

Steve said...

Oh good Dave, I thought I was going to be the only one to vote for #5, and then I saw your vote. (I vote for #5, in case anyone didn't pick that up) =)

#4 It is all about the baby. Not the outfit, who shes with, eventhough papa is sweet, but it shows her.
