Not Cute Enough

My boys aren't cute enough for print. It's true. At least that's what the folks over at BabyGap think. This fall I took some pictures of the boys to enter into a BabyGap contest. The finalists would be flown to San Fransisco for 5 days in November for a photo shoot, and then those photos would be posted online so that people around the country could vote who should win (I don't remember all the prize details but I know there was a $3,000 BabyGap gift card involved).

The pictures could only contain one child, so I couldn't take a super cute group shot and submit it. They couldn't be taken by a "professional", so I had that covered. The picture was supposed to show off the personality of the child. Done! Oh yeah, and the picture couldn't have been publicly displayed anywhere which I concluded would include my blog. Seeing as the boys did not win, I am now free to show off these pictures! I loved the shots so much I had them blown up into 8x10's and bought frames for them. They were the first pictures of the boys we hung on the wall.

Such a "model" pose!

Well I don't know what's wrong with BabyGap - they're certainly cute enough for me!!

I think they are definitely cute enough...separately or together!

IF you could have put all three together you'd have won in a heartbeat!! I love the model pose.

BabyGap was dead wrong. Those are great shots!

BabyGap obviously doesn't know cute when they see it. Your boys are adorable.

Your boys are really cute. I have triplet girls myself, not identical. It will get better and better. Live in the momment and enjoy the now. Mine are six years old and I don't know where the time has gone.

A.D.O.R.A.B.L.E.! Baby Gap needs to get some new photo judges! And those cheeks--I could just munch on all of 'em!

I saw what they are using at Baby Gap right now, not cute at all. I'd much rather have your boys printed 15ft tall on vinyl, attached to the glass windows at my Gap.
