It’s not hard to find the Cover Model Contest every year at Lexington Family Magazine’s Summer Camps & Activities Fair.
You’ll recognize it by the long lines of cute kids waiting for Karen Powell Photography to take their photos.
Held each year at the Fair, the contest is how we find the cutest kids in the Bluegrass to pose for covers throughout the year.
And this year, Karen Powell photographed 150 of them for us at the Fair on April 12. Karen took three to four photos of each child, using props, toys and even big brothers and sisters to elicit smiles from future cover stars.
It was a tough job narrowing the list of all these beautiful children to 14 finalists.
Our judges all had their favorites among the photos of adorable babies, giggling toddlers, bashful little boys and beautiful young ladies.
We settled on the eight kids pictured here. You will see their smiling faces on the covers of our magazine over the next 12 months.
All will get their own photo shoot and many of them will be wearing outfits chosen for them from Blossom of Lexington.
Would you like a chance to see your child featured on the cover of 30,000 copies of this magazine?
Just bring your child to next year’s Cover Model Contest at the Summer Camps & Activities Fair on Saturday, April 11, 2015, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at Lexington Christian Academy.
