7th Annual "That's Me!" Portrait Contest Information



March 27 - April 28, 2017



This contest is open to all children ages 12 and under!

There is NO Entry Fee or Session Fee and NO purchase is necessary to enter!



Each portrait session MUST be scheduled between March 27 and April 28, 2017! NO EXCEPTIONS!

Each photo session will consist of 15-20 images and will be scheduled in 30 minute increments and will be in-studio only, so please be on time as many others will also have scheduled session times on the same day. If you arrive late for your session, you may be asked to reschedule your appointment as others may be waiting for their session.

All sessions are for ONE child only. Siblings MUST have their own individually scheduled session time and may NOT be included in each other's portraits for this contest's entry portrait.

Sessions are BY APPOINTMENT ONLY!

You MUST call me at (419) 885-7153, to schedule your appointment!


This photo session is meant to showcase your child's personality. Parents are encouraged to bring in their child's favorite item or items such as: their favorite toy, dress up items, dance outfits, sports items, etc., for a fun and candid photo shoot.

After your portrait session, we will schedule another appointment time for you to come in and view and choose your favorite pose to be entered into the photo contest.

Contest entry photos must be chosen by May 5, 2017 at 5:00 pm. NO EXCEPTIONS!

If you wish to purchase portraits (purchase is not required for this contest!) from your child's photo session, you may do so at your viewing appointment. From March 27, 2017 until May 5, 2017, for this contest only, we will be offering our One Pose/3 8x10 sheet package for $39.95 (plus tax). You pick the size of the prints for each 8x10 sheet. One sheet could be any of the following: one 8x10, two 5x7s, three 4x6s, or eight wallets (all sheets must the same pose). Or you can purchase One Digital Image with Print Release for only $39.95 plus sales tax per session. You may purchase any additional digital images for $20 each (plus tax) per session; (each child is a separate session!). To take advantage of these pricing specials, you MUST place your order by May 5, 2017 at 5:00 pm. If you place your order after May 5, 2017, you will be subject to regular package pricing, and will not be able to purchase digital images unless 10 or more are purchased at the digital image package pricing. Payment is due at the time the order is placed. This contest pricing special cannot be combined with any other discounts, coupons or special offers.



Please remember, the object of this contest is to raise money and awareness for the Ronald McDonald House of Northwest Ohio. If you cannot keep your scheduled appointment time, please call me at (419) 885-7153, at least 24 hours in advance so that we may have the chance to schedule someone else in your time slot. You will be permitted to reschedule your appointment only one time. If you miss your appointment and do not call us prior to that time to reschedule, you will not be permitted to reschedule. Our time is limited and we are trying to raise money for the charity. By changing your appointment or not showing up for your appointment, you could potentially make someone else not be able to enter the contest, and therefore will cause a loss of available funds being raised. Thank you for your understanding.





There is no purchase necessary to enter or win. Purchase will not increase your chances of winning. Only one prize package will be awarded per household. This contest is open only to legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia. All children entered must be 12 years old or under at the time of the mini portrait sessions. Parents or legal guardians of the contestants must be 18 years of age or older in order to receive a prize package. Odds of winning depend on number of eligible entries submitted during contest period. In case of a tie, the winner will be chosen by the staff of Kurt Nielsen Photography.

Toledo Ronald McDonald House

About Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northwest Ohio


Having a child with a devastating illness or injury is extremely difficult on any family. Having to travel out of town for medical treatment just adds to the complexity of the situation. That's when the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northwest Ohio can help ease this difficult time for a family from out of town.

Every year, over 500 families who come to Toledo for their child's medical treatment stay at the Ronald McDonald House. These families can stay at no cost to them as long as their child is receiving medical care and can come back as often as needed for follow up care. While staying at the Ronald McDonald House, the families are provided with a safe and comfortable place to relax, eat and sleep. There is no charge to these families for the housing, their food, doing their laundry, parking or transportation to medical facilities. All of this is made possible through the generosity of others.

Ronald McDonald House Charities isn't just about the local Ronald McDonald House. They also help with other issues related to the health and well being of children. You can find out all about what they do, volunteer opportunities and upcoming events by visiting their website at: www.rmhctoledo.org

I have partnered with the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northwest Ohio to help bring awareness to their efforts and raise money for their cause. I have donated my time and photography services for many years to Ronald McDonald House Charities for their promotional items and fundraisers. With this being a photo contest about children and their families, I felt it only made sense to help raise money for a charity about children, and what better charity than one with which I am already involved.

If you don't have contest eligible children but still want to donate, I have a donation box at my studio. Feel free to stop in to make a donation or contact the Ronald McDonald House Charities on how you can help.
