First Birthday

It feels like just yesterday that I was doing a newborn session of my beautiful little God-daughter!    For her First birthday, we decided to have a little session in which we gave her a Birthday cake to smash and dressed her up in adorable little tutus.  She's so much fun to dress up...hopefully she'll let her mother and I do it for a few more years.  :)

Happy Birthday Beautiful Girl!

Not too sure about the cake!

Contest: Looking for Ottawa's Cutest Family/Kids


To celebrate the new year, I thought it would be fun to have a little contest!  I'm looking for Ottawa's cutest kids or family and I will reward that family with a free photo session and 8" x 10" print.

How to enter the contest:

It's very easy.....all you have to do is email a picture of your family (or children) to me at michelle@barbeau.net.  Did you take pictures over the holidays?  How about your summer vacation?  Perfect!   Please, no old pictures...I'm looking for pictures taken within the last year.

Important Notes:

  • The picture must be taken by you or a person in your household and you (or the person that took the picture) must agree to have it posted on my blog.   By emailing me the picture, you're accepting these terms and that the picture is okay to be posted on my blog for this contest.  No professional photos.  
  • Only one entry per household

I will be accepting entries until January 13th then on January 14th will post the entries on my blog.   Visitors to my blog will then vote on their favorite picture and the photo with the most votes wins.  The winner will receive a Free photo session by Michelle Barbeau photography for up to 5 people (additional charge for more than 5 people) and a Free 8" x 10" print.  That's a $180 value, how great is that?!

Easy eh?

What are you waiting for?  Go to your computer/camera....pick your favourite family picture....email it to me at michelle@barbeau.net

Can't wait to see all the entries!


ps.  Here's a picture of my gorgeous family :)

Michelle's Favourites

I thought it would be fun to make a collage of my favourite pictures of 2010.  Originally I was going to pick out my top 10 but just couldn't narrow it down so you get 16.  :)
