As you know, ALL of the PhotoLove entries were the bees knees. But there can only be one winner that comes to Fort Wayne to preview our Spring 2013 line in January! And this weekend you helped us narrow down the contest even further! (How can I thank you guys for that!?!?) Drum Roll Please….

And then there were 3.

Mallory Buck’s photo for Courageous

Kristi Mangan’s photo for Tolerant

Annmarie Walker’s photo for Thoughtful

And now things get even harder for us here at Matilda Jane. We have the tough job of picking just one from these three gorgeous photos. Wish us luck! We should have a winner announced this Friday! Huge, HUGE thank yous to all that participated. We are honored to have so many talented photographers involved this year. Like I said, THANK YOU. Huge.

Congrats to the top 3. I would not want to have to choose. They are all fantastic!

How do you get a kid to look so thoughtful? Don’t you just wonder what she is thinking about? All of the top 3 are special, but Thoughtful just has something very different about what was captured. Good luck to all!

What an amazing shot for Thoughtful!
It must have been one of the more difficult things to shoot with a young child and Annmarie nailed it. It’s not like any other photo out there.

Congrats to the top 3! I especially love the “thoughtful” photo. Wonderful and magic shot.

What a tough decision! I love all three. There is something special about “Tolerant”. I love, not only the quality and color of the picture, but the creative idea of the picture. This looks like a picture from a magazine or something I would see if I were to look out my back window and see mine and my neighbors kids playing.

Congratulations to all 3. “Courageous” is very special to me as my husband is a firefighter and I have seen my sweet baby girl look at him the very same way. Good luck choosing a winner!! 🙂

OH-MY-GOODNESS-GRACIOUS!!!!! I am still pinching myself! My little Elle and I are beyond excited. A huge congratulations to Kristi and Mallory and to all the photographers who submitted some of the most beautiful and creative images I’ve seen. You have all inspired me. Thanks MJC!!

Kristi Mangan - December 19, 2012 - 7:48 pm

Wow! I am so honored! Thank you MJC! Congrats to the other ladies (Annmarie & Mallory) as well… I am thrilled to be amongst such great company! I can’t wait to see who the winner is… This is all just so exciting! 🙂

Congratulations to the Top 3! The photos are amazing and I am glad it isn’t me that would have to choose. Just want to say thank you, Matilda Jane, for having the Photolove contest, and I believe that I was given the best gift through this entire experience…..the gift of time with my daughter and her friends, and the realization that I NEED to carve out more time to just shoot creatively for myself. So thank you, so very much! You are a blessing to me. XOXOXO

As a wife of a firefighter, I am so blessed to see the top photo make the cut 🙂 LOVE it.

Congrats to the top 3! How exciting! Thank you Matilda Jane for giving me the opportunity to make it as far as I did. My little girl and I both love our Sprinkles dress and were honored to make it to Top 11.
