Hey Everyone,

We are really excited about this and hopefully you will be too! Once again we are looking for some new images to use in our marketing and we want to expand our baby photography business. So here is the deal:

  • You bring your Baby (aged 12 months or less) to our baby-friendly home studio located in Pontypool. Our location is just 20 mins from Peterborough, Lindsay, Port Perry or Bowmanville. Check our exact location on the Contact Page.
  • Once here, we will treat you to a 60  minute stress free photo session with your baby. All sessions will be done in a hi-key white setting. There is absolutely NO COST to you.
  • Approximately 1 week after your session, we will have you back to the studio for a viewing session where we will show you 20+ fully finished images from the photo session. Pick out your favourite and you receive a FREE 8×10 print of it. This will be your contest entry. There is absolutely NO COST to you! You DO NOT have to purchase a single thing at the viewing, the 8×10 is absolutely free with our thanks!
  • Should you want more images, additional prints may be purchased at 25% off of our regular pricing at the viewing session. Grandparents are more than welcome at the viewing session!
  • On or about Sept 30th, 2013 (once all the proofing sessions are completed) we will post an album on our Facebook page ( Facebook.com/ThoughtfulImpressions) that will contain everyone’s chosen image. The first stage of voting will then be open. The 5 images with the most “likes” will move to the next stage of voting. So get your family and friends to vote, but they must be fans of our page for the vote to count – make sure that they “Like” the page not just the image! This stage of voting will be open until 9:00pm Oct 5th, 2013.
  • The 5 images with the most “qualified likes” (meaning the people have also liked our Facebook page) will be submitted to an international panel of professional photographers. The images will be open to voting in this private forum until October 12, 2013. Winners will be announced on our Blog as well as our Facebook page in the afternoon of October 13, 2013 .
  • The 1st place winner will receive a $300 Photo Session Certificate, 2nd place will receive a $100 Certificate and 3rd place each receive a $50 certificate. These certificates can be applied towards prints, canvas gallery wraps, another session, etc. and are good for 90 days from the date of issue.
  • ***Please keep in mind, the number of “likes” a photo gets on Facebook does not have ANY bearing on which image is chosen as the winner and we have no control over the voting or outcome. All votes from the photographers are based on their own personal judging criteria. ***

So what’s the catch – there’s always a catch in the fine print right? Here it is: We want to use these images in our future marketing. What does that mean? Well, quite simply, it means we may use an image of your child as a sample in our studio, as a picture on our business card / brochure or flyer, a sample on a website or maybe some marketing mailing. Your child will not be identified in any way and we won’t sell the images to anyone. Even if you aren’t a finalist, we may still use your child’s photo. That’s it!

  • This offer will be limited to no more than 25 babies!
  • Just call or TEXT us at 705.772.7702 to book your session. Or you can email us at baby-contest@thoughtful-impressions.ca  to find out available dates or book your session.

We look forward to meeting all of you! Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.
