Gallery: Sleep or Bedtime Photo Contest Winners

Yay! Week One of our photo contest is completed and we have two winners of Scholastic’s Treasury of 20 Storybook Classics 4-DVD set.

Our theme of sleep or bedtime was inspired by Bear Snores On… and More ‘Beary Adorable Tales, one of the DVDs included in the story pack.

Winner #1: Donna from Rochester, Massachusetts:

Is bedtime a task or a joy of parenting? It sure looks fun to us. Lots of photos capture memories for parents, but this one will have meaning for the kids a few decades from now when they realize Mom and Dad weren’t so bad after all. Next time though, Dad, pretend Mom isn’t holding a camera!

Winner #2: Kara from Slidell, Louisiana:

Simply lovely. Notice the camera is at bed height. Turn off the flash, turn on a bedroom light, and hold the camera tightly with both hands on top of your bent knee to reduce camera shake. Or use a tripod or set it on a flat service with a timer. Either way, natural light and shadows do wonders for sleep photos.

    Um, clearly my kid has “bedtime” issues. I wish she slept like those other little kids.

    I feel sorry for Mojo above.. Her child is in an akward position. Looks peaceful but one wrong move and you could have a mighty cranky baby on your hands.
