Baby New Year has, for many years, been a symbol of a fresh start from the last year, a “rebirth.” Many of us have seen Happy, the cherubic baby in the top hat in Rudolph’s Shiny New Year as a child, or have re-watched it in recent years with our own children. We love to celebrate the New Year, and Baby New Year is a personification of all that is new and happy and “shiny.” The hope and anticipation for things to come. For JH Portrait Art & Photography, 2017 was a year of innovation and success, a year when we perfected the ideas that worked, and implemented new ideas that are growing and expanding more quickly than we could have imagined. Looking back, we are so humbled and grateful for the blessings of 2017, and now it is time to look forward to 2018 and all of the exciting plans that lie ahead. To begin 2018, we want to share some of these blessings with you, and to do that, we are holding a contest to discover our very own Baby New Year! Our Baby New Year winner will be the baby born in 2017 or 2018 closest to 12 a.m. on January 1. Don’t be shy about submitting your (or a friend’s) December or even your November baby! All submissions will receive a complimentary session, plus a complimentary 10″ print with purchase! The winning baby, who will be crowned JH Portrait Art & Photograpy’s official Baby New Year, will receive both the complimentary session, the 10″ print with purchase, and also a complimentary 14″ mounted print, similar to the one shown here.
Please send the baby’s name, gender, time and date of birth, and a photo of the baby by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Baby New Year Contest will run from now until January 19, so send your submissions in as soon as you can. We look forward to receiving your submissions, and are so excited to crown our very first Baby New Year!
