Do you know a truly BEAUTIFUL child?

Maybe they've stood up to bullies or have helped someone else through that situation. Maybe they hand out food and water to the homeless, or donate their time at a local non-profit. Maybe they've overcome a lot in their short life already and are still smiling. Perhaps they've reached out to other kids who might've been sitting alone, saved up money to spend on their friends instead of themselves, or have even started their own business or YouTube channel to inspire others.

Know a kid like this? I'd love to meet them!

As part of the Beauty Revived photography movement, I am asking for nominations for beautiful children in the Bend, Oregon area to be featured in a national magazine.

The beauty of these children will not be measured by their looks. Instead, these children will be chosen because of their REAL beauty... the good stuff that shines from the inside out.

The child chosen through this nomination process will be gifted a free photo session with yours truly and a feature in the Real Beautiful Children’s issue of Beauty Revived magazine

What is Beauty Revived?

Beauty Revived is a movement that celebrates women and children with real beauty. Selected photographers donate sessions to chosen women and children, whose stories are then featured in their magazine and on their website at BeautyRevived.com.

Hundreds of photographers applied to be a part of the Beauty Revived 50 Beautiful Children's campaign, and I am honored to be among those selected to participate.

The Suitcase Studio was selected as a photographer to participate in the 2018 Beauty Revived: 50 Beautiful Children campaign.

Nominations are CLOSED!

Thanks for your participation!

I will be accepting nominations from June 12 - June 25.  I will then select one child to gift with a complimentary photography session (and a few other goodies, to be announced). The child chosen will be an example of real beauty and will have shown their beauty by demonstrating courage when challenged, kindness in the face of adversity, or another beautiful way of expressing themselves which has impacted the world in a positive way. 

How to Nominate a Beautiful Child:

1.) Follow The Suitcase Studio on Facebook and/or Instagram.

2.) Follow Beauty Revived on Facebook and/or Instagram.

3.) Fill out the submission form below to let me know why the child you’re nominating should be chosen.

4.) Share it out!  We need to get the word out about this cause.  Share this page on social media + use these hashtags: #50beautifulchildren #TSSbeautifulchildren


A QUICK REMINDER: This is not a beauty pageant or voting contest.  The beauty of these children will not be measured by their physical beauty, but will be selected because of their inner beauty. The winner will be given a free photography session with The Suitcase Studio and a feature in the August issue of Beauty Revived magazine that will tell their story and show images from their portrait session.

More about Beauty Revived


The mission of Beauty Revived is to tell the stories of real women and children with real beauty. Photographers donate one session to a deserving woman or child who shows attributes of kindness, courage and strength. These sessions are featured on the Beauty Revived website. Beauty Revived was established in 2014 and has held 15 national campaigns, has a network of 1500 photographers and has told the stories of 800 women in print in 15 magazines published.

Beauty Revived was started four ago as a way for photographers to use their lens for good and shine light on the real beauty that was happening in our communities. In the last year and a half, more than 800 women, girls and children have been featured on their website and magazine.

“As a high school senior photographer, I started Beauty Revived because I saw the power that a photographer has in shaping perception and altering dialogue on beauty,” Michelle Gifford, Beauty Revived founder, said.

“The photographers who participate in our campaigns not only have great technical and artistic talent but also have big hearts and a desire to be more than just a picture taker. They want to be a photographer who changes the world with their work,” Gifford said.
