Real Cute Kids Contest is on: Enter Here

An example of the fabulous work of Real Life Studios!

Last summer and Winter 2011 we held what became our biggest contest ever: our Real Cute Kids contest.

Parents have their child’s photo taken free of charge, votes are entered here on, and several Richmond kids ages 0-11 years old won big!

We’re doing this famous Richmond photo contest over again starting 7/15/11 with photos by Real Life Studios at Romp n Roll and Mom’s Treehouse.

Here’s what to do:

1) Complete this brief online form to ENTER, it’s free! (without this we will have no information related to your photograph). If you’d like to purchase photos, great discount packages are available. My son was photographed by Real Life Studios in this photo on the right, we loved the results. **starting 7/29, if you purchase a package of $49 or more, receive a free signed copy of our children’s book, Richmond Rocks!
