Happy Baby Day! 5 Babies to Avoid

May 2 is a holiday of dubious origins and vague purpose…but if at least one online calendar of events say that May 2 is Baby Day, who are we to argue? Besides, are you saying that the babies of this world don’t deserve a day of their own, a day to celebrate whatever it is that makes babies so appealing and special? Of course you’re not saying that.

And what better way to celebrate Baby Day than to start your baby—or a friend, family member or neighbor’s baby—on the path to ultimate happiness? In short, why not make your baby an Internet Celebrity?

Still Casting: We Need Babies For An Upcoming Book! Especially Little Ones!

Hey Quirk fans!

We're still seeking seeking babies to be photographed for an upcoming Fall 2014 book, and we’re especially in need of babies 6 months (or younger) to twelve months in age. We’re looking for babies of all ethnicities, too! And while we can't dish out details about the project just yet, you can think of it as Quirk's version of an Anne Geddes book. More info available for serious inquirers.

Right now we're looking in the Philadelphia and New York City region, as the photographer lives here in Philly and also makes regular trips to NYC. The photographer of the book will stop by your house to take the photo.

There's no compensation, but your baby will be featured in an amazing Quirk book! And of course, you'll get a really great, unique professional photo of your child. Interested parents can email me (eric@quirkbooks.com) headshots of their babies, and we'll forward them on to the photographer.

Thanks!

Hey Quirk fans!

We're currently seeking babies from 12 to 24 months old for an upcoming Fall 2014 book, though there's probably a little wiggle room on either end of that age range. And while we can't dish out details about the project just yet, you can think of it as Quirk's version of an Anne Geddes book. 

Right now we're looking in the Philadelphia and New York City region, as the photographer lives here in Philly and also makes regular trips to NYC. The photographer of the book will stop by your house to take the photo.
