How the contest works:
Your online gallery will be delivered for you to quickly and easily choose the images to enter into the contest and which to purchase for your artwork
Hate trying to figure out what to wear for photos? Our client closet has your baby covered with a wide variety or sizes and colors.
Sessions take place in our lifestyle studio just south-east of downtown in Boise, Idaho
Your baby's photos will be entered into our contest with the chance to win our grand prize worth $1200! Plus additional prizes for voters throughout the competition.
We've hand picked specialty items and bundled them together to save off a la carte prices as well as over 20% off our digital only packages.
Your entire session fee ($90) is a credit that you can use toward any order you'd like to place with no further purchase required. (Though we do hope you'll help us support the food bank!)

Step 3: Preparing for Your Shoot
On your big day we'll choose our final outfits and immediately get started. We'll plan to photograph your chunky babe for about 25-30 minutes in 3 different setups so it's quick an easy for them and give you lots of great variety to choose from. We ask that you please arrive a few minutes early so we can start right on time!

Want a little help with ordering? We're more than happy to schedule you a complimentary in-person ordering appointment if you'd prefer
Step 5: Your Ordering Gallery
Next we'll load the images you've chosen into our online poll where we invite you and all your friends and family to vote for your baby's winning rolls!
Prizes will be chosen at the end of each round so be sure to vote every day- even if your baby isn't in that round!

Your baby is only this small once. Capture these fleeting moments with a special photoshoot of cherished images... along with a generous donation to Idaho families in need.
Our Chunky Baby milestone sessions are quick 30 minute intervals with other baby's appointments directly afterward so unfortunately we won't have time to take photos of the entire crew. However, if you'd like to involve the whole family let us know and we can upgrade your chunky baby to a full family session and still grab the images needed to enter the contest at the same time.
can you take photos of the whole family at the same time?
Chunky Baby sessions will be shown on our website as well as on our social media accounts for voting purposes, therefore a signed model release allowing us to show your images is required. However, we are more than happy to do a private milestone session for you separately from Chunky Baby. Visit our Milestone Session page to learn more.
can i keep my baby's images private?
Digital files are purchased separately from the $90 participation fee. We know how important having a digital copy is so we offer a variety of digital file purchasing options. Read more about our pricing and products here.
are the digital files included?
Voting will begin on March 6, 2024 via our online voting platform. All chunky baby participants will be added to our email list so you'll get all of the details and links for when the votes will take place. Voting is open to the public and we encourage you to send links to family and friends to vote for your baby!
when does the voting start? and where?
Just the baby! We invite you to show up with nothing but your adorable chunk. We will provide everything else- even baby friendly snacks since we know modeling is extra hard work.
what do i need to bring?
Yes. We don't discriminate! If you baby is adorable and you want to help us support the Idaho Food Bank, you're more than welcome to apply for a spot.
my baby isn't really chunky... can they still enter?
