FALLBROOK – Ahrend Studios, celebrating 60 years of doing business in Fallbrook, starts off the year with its 25th Annual Cute Kids Contest. The Cute Kids Contest began as a spring discount for children’s portraits and has grown with community involvement and with the help from local Fallbrook businesses and sponsors.
There are four age groups for children ages 1 month to 10 years old. There will be prizes awarded in each age group as well as two special awards. People can cast their votes for the “People’s Choice Award” at the sponsor locations and a “Facebook Favorite Award” by visiting Ahrend Studios Photography Facebook page.
Winners will be announced here in the Village News. Voting will take place May 12 to 16 and the community is encouraged to participate in helping choose this year’s “People’s Choice.” This year’s returning sponsors are Ahrend Studios (211 E. Alvarado St), Sweet ‘n Sassy Children’s Boutique (1229 S. Mission), One Shop Beauty Supplies (113 S. Vine), Yogurt Palace (130 S. Main) and La Caseta Restaurant (111 N. Vine). More information about the contest can be picked up at any of the sponsor locations or on the Ahrend Studio’s Photography Facebook page.
The entry includes a portrait session with each child, a 5×7 print, 20 percent off on additional prints, a Jr. Cone at Yogurt Palace, and a certificate to use for a family portrait too. To enter children under 10 years old, contact Ahrend Studios, (760) 728-7613, to make a portrait session appointment. Portrait sessions are open from now until May 3.
