UGLY SWEATER SESSIONS: A totally awkward 80’S holiday

November 8, 2015

So obviously I am over the moon to type this post!!! No seriously, I’ve been waiting for what seems like forever to post this! Last year’s competition was a HUGE hit….so, since my favorite thing in the world is Christmas…it’s time for round TWO! (To see last year’s winner, click here) This year, we have a theme. 80’s!! Interpret this as you wish. Let’s see how creative y’all can get! Last year, we raised over $2500 for charity….think we can beat it this year??!! Consider yourself officially INVITED to the virtual party!!!! Check out YOUR invitation below!

WHAT: UGLY (holiday) SWEATER PORTRAIT SESSIONS aka TWP’s Virtual Ugly Sweater Party Contest 

WHEN: NOVEMBER 16th-23rd- Because time is limited this year, get in touch to schedule as soon as possible!




WHO: EVERYONE AND ANYONE! Family, friends, pets, businesses

WHY: BECAUSE THIS IS BEYOND FUN!!!! And because everyone loves a good awkward photo, why not make a holiday spoof of it!

CONTEST RULES: The sky is the limit for creativity, but you must be wearing your version of an ugly holiday sweater! You can incorporate props, get silly, get awkward…or even use your favorite holiday movie for inspiration! Upon completion of your session, images will be posted to the TWP Facebook Page (hence the “virtual” Ugly Sweater Party) in preparation for the judging.

GIVING BACK: There is an entry fee of $40 per session. All entry fees will be pooled together and then donated to the winner’s charity of choice. Additionally, all participants will receive $40 off any portrait session they book with TWP.

JUDGING: One photo will be selected as the winner (individual, family, or group) and will be chosen based off of the contestant’s creativity and ugly sweater(s). The winner of the contest will be announced on FRIDAY DECEMBER 4TH. Not the winner? Well, that’s ok! There will be a people’s choice award! Voting will take place on Facebook!

THE WINNER: The winner will receive one STYLED (special thanks to Styled by Randi) portrait session from TWP (engagement, family, business, maternity, newborn…you can use it however you wish!) And! Because this is before the holidays, you can even gift your portrait session to someone! The winner will also choose the charity which TWP will donate. BUT! That’s not all… the winner will receive a special gift from Pretty Polite (luxury print boutique).

RECEIVABLES: All participants receive two High-Res Digital Files that you can use as you wish (perhaps your holiday card!!!)

HOW TO SCHEDULE: Email or call 518-928-3256

    […] you today. Swoon. I met Lauren a few years back when I photographed her and her friends for the TWP Ugly Sweater Contest! I remember their session being perfectly styled, even though it was a goofy holiday photo contest! […]
