Just too cute! ~ Maryland Newborn Photographer

**This is a test post.  If you are reading this line, the blog is still under re-construction, so please forgive any bugs while I test and fix.**

So at the end of our vacation this summer we got an extra special treat.  My little nephew arrived a month early, so we got to make a really long little detour to meet him.  Our kiddos were beyond excited, and are still talking about how cute he is.  They’re right.  He is.

International Charity Model Search in support of Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep

ncms_eblast

I hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful holiday season!  I have some exciting news to share!  I am a BIG fan of the Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep Foundation and am thrilled to be able to have the opportunity to help support it.  This year Bay Breeze Photography is participating in the International Charity Model Search to select North America’s Cutest Kid and to raise funds for the non-profit Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep Foundation. The last two years this event featured over 2,600 model’s images and raised $184,775 for the NILMDTS organization.

Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep (NILMDTS), is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization committed to assisting parents and families who experience the tragedy of an early infant loss. NILMDTS connects families with volunteer photographers and provides them with a professional portrait session and reproducible CD of the images of their baby at no cost to the family. For further information on NILMDTS, visit their website at www.nowilaymedowntosleep.org

So, how can you help while giving your child the opportunity to win a fantastic prize package?  Is your child North America’s Cutest Kid?  We’ll give you the opportunity to prove it!  The grand prize winner will win a $2500 savings bond, a $2500 travel package, and a $100 Target gift card.  The second and third place runners up each will win a $500 savings bond and a $100 Target gift card.

Model Search Special:
$25 entrance fee includes a 30-minute model session and one image submitted to the international gallery.  One entrance fee is required per child.  These special model sessions must take place in our new studio in Hollywood, MD between January 1, 2011-March 31, 2011.  Special print packages will be available for purchase from these sessions, with a portion of the proceeds going to NILMDTS.  Families who have booked regular (either studio or on location) sessions to take place during the time of the Model Search will receive one complimentary entry per session.  (Additional entries may be purchased for additional children).

Finalists will be determined by online votes.  Each vote is $1 (no limit on the amount of votes you can cast), and all proceeds from votes benefit Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep (NILMDTS.org).  Every family member who registers their information on the Charity Model Search Website will also receive 1 complimentary vote.  The top 5 paid votes, and the top 5 complimentary votes in each region will move on to the final judging round for a total of 50 finalists.
Grand prize international winner and runners up will be determined from the 50 regional finalists. The winner and runners up are selected by photography experts.

Dreaming of Daddy | A From Home To Heroes Session

I love watching babies sleep and always wonder what they might be dreaming of.  Now with this particular baby it was no mystery whatsoever.  I can tell you without a doubt that she is dreaming of her Daddy.  She is dreaming of finally getting to meet him and of getting her first Daddy hugs and kisses.  You see, her Daddy is far, far away right now serving our country and doing his best to make sure that she grows up in a safer, better world.  While my heart breaks for them missing out on this time together, I am so very grateful for the sacrifices that her whole family is making right now.  So sweet dreams little angel!  I pray that your Daddy is home safe and sound very soon so that you can quickly wrap him around your perfect little fingers.
