A wish and a 'Mommy & Me' win
A photo of Kelsey Thompson with her daughter Bexley Shang Littlejohn was selected by the Times-Gazette staff as the winner of our “Mommy & Me” photo contest, earning Thompson (who submitted the photo) a night at the Gaylord Opryland Resort plus $100 cash.
The photo is titled “My wish for you,” a reference to the dandelions Bexley is holding in the photo.
The photo contest asked for photos of mothers with their children.
Second prize went to Danielle Pomarico for a photo of her with son Braxton.
“You’ve been a blessing from the start,” wrote Pomarico in the entry form. “I love you with all my heart!” She received a $100 gift card from Heritage Jewelers on the square, the premiere sponsor of the contest. Domino’s and DSC Sanitation were also sponsors.
Jacob Baum submitted a photo of his wife, Brittany Baum, with their newborn son, Bentlee, who arrived on February 26. That photo, “New Smiles for New Mom!”, won third prize, a pizza party from Domino’s.
There were a total of 48 entries in the contest, all of which were published in a special section in Tuesday’s Times-Gazette.
The Times-Gazette thanks all of those who entered, as well as our contest sponsors, and wishes all mothers a very happy Mother’s Day.
