Cutest Baby Costume | jookie’s 6th Annual Halloween Fundraiser

Of course this is just as hard to decide as the cutest kid costume.  Apparently putting a baby in a kitchen pot gives you an extra boost.  That’s right, this year’s winner for Cutest Baby Costume goes to the Lobster!  He was soooo happy in that pot. I only had to snap a few photos […]

Cutest Kid Costume | jookie’s 6th Annual Halloween Fundraiser

The Cutest category is always the toughest.  We know they’re all cute and should all win.  We tried to make it easier this year by having a baby winner and a non-baby winner.  I asked our six judges for their top five choices, and they were almost all completely different.  BUT, there was ONE costume […]

Scariest Costume Winner | jookie’s 6th Annual Halloween Fundraiser

jookie’s 6th Annual Halloween Costume Contest and Fundraiser | chicago childrens photographer

It’s my favorite time of year and in part because of Halloween, the absolute most bestest holiday for kids.  Since we opened in the fall of 2006, we’ve been hosting this fun event and in 2007 we turned it into a kids-helping-kids fundraiser.  (See last year’s winners here.) Every year we pick a wonderful and […]
