A BABY Contest (Fit For a King)!

Happy Monday!  This past weekend has been extremely busy for Peter and I as we prepare to move into our new condo.  We cleaned, painted, cleaned paint out of my hair, made numerous trips to the hardware store and have tons more work to do this week before calling this place our new home.  We are staying put in the great city of Chicago, but just moving a little bit outside downtown for a little more room and the best part…I will have my very own office!  So, in honor of everyone’s most favorite day of the week…I have some EXCITING news!

Nicole, owner and founder, of Mally Design Ltd. and I are teaming up to offer 3-4 lucky babies/toddlers in the Chicagoland area a chance to be photographed, featured on Mally Designs Website and WIN a Leather baby or toddler bib.  If you are not familiar with Mally Designs, they are a Vancouver, Canada based husband and wife team that created the first ever leather baby bib in 2005.  Their products are all designed and manufactured in Canada, manufactured in the most earth friendly ways possible, constructed with the best quality leather that can be rinsed off in the sink (because they don’t stain) and the magnet that keeps the bib around your babies necks, hangs on the fridge for easy storage!

If you are wondering how and why a child-less Wedding Photographer from Chicago, IL and a mom of two Entrepreneur from Vancouver, Canada are teaming up to together, let me indulge you.  Several years ago, my husband and I were vacationing in Mexico and we met Nicole and her husband, Ron.  We became great friends staying in touch, meeting back up in the Caribbean, Niagara Falls in Ontario, Las Vegas and two years ago, they took their to 2 adorable kids + puppy on a road trip and visited us in Chicago.  Nicole’s passion and quality to her business is something I admire and when she asked if I would be interested in taking photographs for their new designs to be released soon…I was honored!  Oh, one more thing to add… Mally Designs were recently asked to create a custom baby bib for the FUTURE KING.  That’s right, Prince George will be receiving a personalized Mally Bib.  And the best part, here’s how you can have one, too…

How do I enter my baby or toddler?

1) You must ‘LIKE’ Annie Steele Photography and Mally Bibs Facebook page!

2) Submit an email to contests(at)mallybibs(dot).com (Subject:  Chicago Photo Model) telling us why your 6 month- 2 year old baby or toddler would make a great Mally Bibs model to showcase one of the brand new, not yet released 2013/2014 Mally Bib designs.  In the email, also include your baby’s name, birthdate and what his or her favorite food is.  Last, but not least, please include a recent photo (taken within the last month) so that we can get a better idea of child size for potential modeling of the baby vs. toddler bib.

Please consider if you truly think your child will be comfortable with this. We are looking for happy babies that would be comfortable around a camera and to represent a brand that makes meal time a little easier on moms and dads!  

What will I receive?

Great Question!  You will be meeting up with yours truly for a photography mini session.  Lead Designer, Nicole,  will be choosing one of the new designs to showcase on your baby or toddler and sending the chosen designs all the way from Vancouver, Canada to Chicago, IL.  After your child’s mini session of modeling with the bib, he or she will be the owner of a brand new Mally’s Bib and you will be the envy of all the moms and dads in the neighborhood.  In addition, you will be receiving some of the very best, fully edited, high resolution digital images of your child with print release.

How will I know if my baby or toddler is chosen?

You will be notified by email next week if your baby/toddler is a good fit to model a Mally’s bib.  Locations and times will be determined in the coming weeks and the sessions will likely take place in late August and September.

If you, like me, do not have a baby/toddler but know someone who does, please pass along this information!  I’m very excited to be part of this one time opportunity for all our mom and dad fans out there!  Good luck and hope to see you soon!
