LYYP 2015 Pic of the Year WINNER

Ladies. And. Gentlemen. This is IT! The moment you’ve all been waiting for! The WINNER of the Grand Prize and the title of the LYYP Pic of the Year Contest for 2015 is….

2015 LYYP Pic of the Year-1


In addition to the esteemed title of 2015 LYYP Pic of the Year (and, of course, all the fame that goes along with it), the winner will receive a 20×30 Float Wrap of any image from a past session (or one taken in 2016)!  I happen to think that this winning image would look GREAT on their wall, but I also know that there were several wall-worthy images in this session … and also, wouldn’t it be fun to see what came of a new session in 2016? 😉

And since I know you’re all on the edge of your seats, let me get right to announcing the runner up in the Contest…

2015 LYYP Runner Up-1

RUB-A-DUB! The runner up will receive 200 LYYP bucks for use toward any LYYP session in 2016.  I’m scheduled to see this cutie again in June, so I know this prize will be put to good use!

Now, let me tell you something — the margin for the runner up spot was really close.  I mean, there were two other images within a couple of votes of the runner up spot.  Since I’m a sucker (and since I’m particularly fond of both of these super-close-to-winning families), I’ve decided to award each of these super-close-to winning families 50 LYYP bucks to use toward a session in 2016.  Yay!  I love being the one who makes the rules around here!  And the surprise extra almost-runner-up winning images are ….

Phew.  This is fun.  But we’re not done here!  I haven’t told you which voter has won the drawing for the 300 LYYP Bucks! The winner of the random drawing is ….. DOROTHY IVANOVICH! Congratulations, Dorothy — so exciting!  (Her littlest cutie just happens to be the subject of one of the finalist images, “Mobile Baby”).

Congratulations to all the winners. I’ll be in touch with you all by email to discuss how to claim your prizes.  Before I sign off, I just want to say a big thank you to all of you who participated and made this contest so much fun for me. Past clients, present clients, future clients, friends and family of clients, non-client friends and family of mine, and people who just like to stop by here and look at the pretty pictures of happy families and cute kids. I’m so glad you’re here!

Have a great weekend and a wonderful winter break, and thanks for looking!
