Say Cheese! A giveaway for photo-happy moms!

Edited to add: Congrats to lucky number 17, Carabee, for winning!



Once you have a baby, you will spend a LOT of time taking pictures. I couldn't put my camera down once I had a baby - everyday, I try to capture the perfect shot.

As you all know, it can be quite difficult to get your infant to look at the camera, and sometimes, we go through great lengths to get our child to look at the camera. From singing songs, to jumping up and down and waving our hands in the air - yes, we try it all!
I was recently given the Shutter-Buddy to review and I think it would make a great gift for any new mom.

All you have to do is attach the black and white patterned material around your camera, and bingo - your baby will not want to look away from the black and white pattern!
I'm giving the Shutter-Buddy away to one of my readers... if you want to win, all you have to do is leave me a comment telling me who you'd give this to, or if you'd keep it for yourself, and why!

The contest is open to U.S. and Canadian citizens and I'll pick a winner through random.org on January 29th.

Good Luck!

Ahh.. I would use that. Getting baby to look at the camera is always a challenge and the concept is so simple I love it!

Amy said...

This is the cleverest thing I've ever seen! Love it!

Wow - amazing. Wish had one when my kids were younger. Would love to get one my my niece who is expecting in March.

So cute! I'd give it to my cousin, who is about to have a baby. Or keep it for myself to take kajillions of photos of my 2nd child (I'm trying to get pregnant!)

What a great idea! Love it. I'd keep it for myself!!

Amy said...

That thing looks hilarious... and I bet it would TOTALLY WORK! I'd keep it for myself of course and use it all the time!

I have a very good friend who is expecting in February. She currently has two boys, one of which is my sons BFF, anyway she is finally having a GIRL and she is super excited. She is an aspriring photographer as many people are but I think this would be PERFECT for her, especailly with the new one just around the corner!

Wish this was available when my kids were babies, it's so cool!

Krystyn said...

I'd keep it for myself...never know if a baby #3 would be on the way (no, not now!)

Hailey said...

How cool! I would totally keep it for myself because I love it.

Tiffany Lockette said...

Are you kidding, this would be the answer to my prayers!! Love it. I would love to have that so hopefully Zoe would finally look at the camera and say cheeze! She says cheeze but silly girl won't look at the camera. What a great idea.

T Rex Mom said...

What an interesting concept - we have a new baby so we'd keep it for ourselves!

Lindsey said...

Such a neat idea!! I have a 2 year old that hates to smile for the camera and a baby due at the end of the month! I would totally keep it for myself and use it on the kids :)

Maria @BOREDmommy said...

This is a really cute giveaway - I've never seen this product before but think its genius. I would give it to my younger sister who is pregnant and due the end of next month, so she can photograph her new baby!

Jennifer said...

I hate to sound selfish, but I'd keep it! I have three little ones (the youngest is 8 months), and I can use all the help I can get! :)

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

Sweet! My mother in law and hubs take pics of kids all the time and this would be perfect for them!!

Lady Mama said...

What a great idea! I'd definitely keep this for myself because honestly, I have hardly any shots with both boys looking at the camera! Great giveaway.

CaraBee said...

I would give this to my girlfriend Katie, who just TODAY gave birth to her second child! She took almost no pictures with her first and I think she needs a little extra encouragement to get on the ball and take more pictures!

Cassandra said...

I would definitely keep that for myself! My lil cutie is just 3 months old and I love taking her picture! She however, does not always love looking at the camera!

Shannon said...

Too clever! I'd use this myself with the two kiddos/hubby/dog. Haha!! Neat idea for sure!

♥ Mommy ♥ to R & R said...

I would totally love this for myself, as I am a shutterbug, and always taking photos of my 2, not to mention all of our friends and family who are now having children of their own, and I can't resist snapping away when we are around them!!!

Wow! What a cool invention. I take 1,000,000,000 pictures and would love this.
Thanks for visiting my blog, and becoming a follower! I am now following too.

Doc said...

It looks like a great product. Imaginative and if can hold the little one's attention its a winner. It sure can be difficult to keep the kids looking at the camera.

Julie said...

A friend of mine is expecting in April. What a great and unique babyshower gift!

Kristin said...
