some favorites of 2008 {children and families}

Oh my goodness, I didn’t realize how fun this would be!!  All I have to say is, it has been SO incredibly hard to choose between the wonderful families and children we have had the pleasure of documenting this year.  I am so glad it is you and not me that has to vote for ONE photo!  Choosing a few was HARRRD. ;)   In case you did not read the previous post, we are having a friendly competition!  Simply choose your favorite photo-this round you may choose ONE family + ONE child photo, so you get to PICK 2 PHOTOS! In the comment box, tell me the name and number and WHY you are voting for that particular photo.  If you don’t tell me why you are choosing, your vote is not counted. (Did I mention how fun this is that I get to make the rules??) The winner who receives the most votes will receive a complementary 8X10 from studio3z!!

Also, the competition is still on in the previous post {Seniors+Portraits} because it seems we are at a tie!  I will close that one tomorrow morning. :)

Below are some very wonderful people….some we have known, some we just met this year.  Each one in their own way has touched our lives.

Now get to voting! :)   Voting for this round will close on Wednesday at NOON.

#2 Roxanna

Barb - Family #10 – The S family because they look like they are having such a great time, and the old truck rocks.

adam. - #3

Brett - Adam…did you mean that little Luke was rad or that girl striking the ninja pose… It’s cool if you think Luke is rad, b/c he is, but it wasn’t the first thing that came to my mind :-) Thought you might have put the number with the pic above #3 rather than below it on accident…

rebecky - child vote-#1 leyla because her faces are the best and she is a doll. family vote is the C family not sure the number, I like this one because the girls are being cute together and the whole family is enjoying them. Who does love being entertained by the little ones? but all the pictures are great and so hard to decide. Love all the little personalities of the children shown in the pictures. CUTIES

January 20, 2009 - 3:16 am

Chad - I really like the overall look of photograph #4. However, I am choosing #1 because the pensive look on Leyla’s face succeeds in evoking the most emotion (which art should do, right?). It may also have something to do with the fact that she is my little girl.

January 20, 2009 - 9:52 am

Angie Strader - I have to vote for Grace. She is lovely.

January 20, 2009 - 11:42 am

Bethany - #9 Grace — because the photo is both a playful and sophisticated view of a beautiful young woman.

Konul - I have been trying to see the pictures since yesterday but for some reason only thing I see is Leyla’s picture and the text above the pictures. So I am voting without seeing all the pictures…
Leyla – my firstborn, this picture brings calmness and sadness to me at the same time. It reminds me of myself…

Even though I don’t know which picture of Zazi you are using, I read someone’s comment about his blue eyes. He is my blue-eye mini Chad. Zazi changed a lot since you took those pictures but I am sure his picture is still the best 6-month old boy picture you took :) .

January 20, 2009 - 3:40 pm

gina@kiwistreetstudios - omg! ALL of them because they are ALL awesome.
