Thank you to all the photographers that shared their best photos showing newborns smiling in the Newborn Smiles Photo Contest for a chance to win a Canon EOS 60D camera. A big thank you to Kelly Brown for helping judge this contest.

"Congratulations to all the finalists.  With so many beautiful smiling babies it definitely wasn't easy selecting the overall winner and the runner ups!  I have based my decision not only on capturing a beautiful smile of a newborn but the composition, lighting and overall impact of the image.  The winning image shows a high level of craft and skill in all areas of the photograph and each of the runner up images also demonstrate great skill in camera technique and have been styled and captured beautifully.  Congratulations again."
