Last Call: Favorite Family Memories

December 21, 2011

This Captured Series is brought to you by Best Buy. Get unbeatable prices on all digital cameras to capture your family memories this holiday season!

Okay you guys, this is the last call for your favorite family memories. I LOVE what has been submitted so far and can’t wait to check out any additions that show up this week. I have to say, I didn’t realize how affected I would be when looking at your images. They make me catch my breath, get teary eyed, and reminisce about my own favorite memories. What a treat! And what a great way to stay focused on family during this crazy month. Thank you!

Today, I went through the submissions so far and thought I’d share 3 that made me want to snuggle my kids. Images by ashleylyn, likearadio and auley. By the way, if for some reason your images aren’t showing up, feel free to leave a link in the comments.

Do you have a great photo of a favorite family memory? You should totally submit it — you could win a $500 gift card! It’s easy, just upload it to Flickr with the tag #CapturedPhotoContest_DesignMom. You can submit up to five photos until December 24th — just a few more days! FYI: ePrize will contact the winner through Flickr Mail mid-January. Find all the contest details here.

Thanks for featuring my photo :) Jameson only likes to stay still now when reading stories. I really like the angle of this shot too…so fun.

Hello! I tagged my pictures as instructed, but they aren’t showing up in your gallery. Any assistance would be appreciated (my Flickr account is koppejackie). Thank you!

So mysterious! I’m not sure why they’re not showing up, but here’s some info from the Flickr Help Desk that might shed some light:

To ensure that your photostream is included in public searches either on Flickr itself and/or any third party software that accesses Flickr via the API (including Yahoo! Image Search), you can modify your settings by going to:

Alternatively, you may select which photos to include in searches by following the steps below:

Go to Organizer by clicking “Organize & Create”.
Select the photos you’d like to include.
In the “Permissions” menu, select “Hide/show in public searches”.
Please make sure that the checkbox is NOT selected.


If that doesn’t help, you can always include links to the photos here in the comment section. Any links will be considered contest submissions.

oh, thank you so much for including my photo! that’s one of my own favorites – lena and her daddy have always been best buddies, from day one.

I’m new to flickr and apparently there’s a delay until you upload a minimum of 5 photos (which I’ve just done). In the meantime here is a link to my entries!

Thanks for considering me!


13 Wendy December 21, 2011 at 5:38 pm

I am new to flickr too and thought this was uploaded weeks ago. I hope this link works. Thank you!

Beautiful.. :)



15 Mya Maternity December 21, 2011 at 9:50 pm

Ahh, these pictures are so beautiful.


16 Amy Jo December 21, 2011 at 10:18 pm

These are lovely. I especially love the second one.

I double checked my submissions and they don’t appear either. It is a mystery! Here they are:

Happy holidays to you and your family!

Oops, I can’t see my submission either — probably too many Christmas cookies on my part.

Merry Christmas!


21 Kristen Balonek December 24, 2011 at 7:24 pm

Mine are not showing up either. I’m not sure why because they are open to the public and tagged correctly. Hope you can see these.

Merry Christmas!


22 Heidi December 24, 2011 at 9:10 pm

I hope mine are showing up. I am new to flickr. here is a link:

months ago my husband and i searched our archives for something to submit here and were surprised not to find any image that satisfied us. there were good photos, but not the perfect photo. i know the contest is totally over, but the other day i uploaded an image of my son pretend-photographing my daughter who was smiling at him and i totally thought, “this is the one i would have chosen”. :) so for my peace of mind’s sake, i’m including it here. love following along on your france and design adventures.
