Christie Adams Photography- Ridgewood's Premier Boutique Photographer | NJ baby photographer » NJ baby photographer, Ridgewood baby photographer, Bergen county baby photographer

Blog Contest 2017 photo of the year

It’s time for my 10th annual photo contest!  I had the hardest time selecting my favorite images from the past 12 months.  In 2017 I had 214 families in front of my camera!  Clients, if you don’t see one of your images in this list, please know that I have loved every session this year and I enlisted the help of my two daughters to narrow down my list.

When I opened in 2007 I could never have dreamed that I would photograph over 900 families from all over New Jersey and NYC at my beautiful studio in Ridgewood and outdoors.  I am so grateful to all of you! It means the world to me when clients tell me that they have recognized my work hanging on the walls of their friends’ homes.  I try very hard to maintain a very clean, classic and timeless style. I avoid elaborate props or photoshop effects because I want my images to stand the test of time and look beautiful on your wall for MANY years to come. The focus in my images is always on your beautiful children and family as you can see by the finalists below!

There will be four winners!

(1) The client whose image has the most votes will receive a complimentary 11 x 14 gallery mount of either the image from this contest or an image of their choice from an upcoming 2018 session.  Scroll down to cast your vote AFTER the last image.

(2) The 2nd place winner will receive a $100 gift certificate to put towards a session in 2018.

(3 and 4) Leave a comment on this blog post (scroll down under the last image).  TWO comments will be selected at random and the two people who submitted the comment will receive a FREE Mini Session!!  The winners may either keep the prize for themselves or gift to a friend.  The Mini Session will be at my studio in Ridgewood on a weekday between January and May 1 2018 and you will receive 3  5×7 mini mounts.

for winner #3 and #4, one comment per person but you can earn a second entry by sharing the link to the contest on your facebook wall.  Just come back and post a second comment.

 

Voting will begin NOW and end on January 11th at 8pm EST.
IP addresses will be monitored – only 1 vote per person
Results will not be visible on the poll and I will announce the winner on January 11th after 8pm
