Portrait contest

. February 22, 2013.

Kurt Nielsen Photography wants to show the world how beautiful your newborns, toddlers, and children are. Nielsen, a local photog, hosts his annual child portrait contest, to determine which kids are the most photogenic,  with free photo sessions at his studio from Monday, March 11 through Saturday, April 13, where contestants can come in to take a fun, candid shot (kids are welcome to bring their own toys or costumes). For a $5 donation to the Ronald McDonald House of Northwest Ohio, parents receive a CD containing their child's photographs.  All photos will be posted to Kurt Nielsen Photography's Facebook page, where visitors can vote on which portrait they like best — last year's contest received over one thousand votes. The winning child will be featured on Kurt Nielsen Photography's website and Facebook page, and receive passes to Imagination Station and Splash Bay Resort.

Kurt Nielsen Photography, 5431 Schultz Dr., Sylvania. To set-up a session, call 419-885-7153. www.kurtnphoto.com.
