& THE MACC FUND WITH PHOTOGRAPHYMortensen Photography Cute Kids Portrait

For over 25 years Mortensen Portrait Design have held our Annual Cute Kids Portrait Contest to benefit the MACC (Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer) Fund with discounted photography sessions.

This FundraisingĀ event has grown from a small portrait contest to overĀ 1,000 cute kids photographed. We have a portrait display at Tadpoles and at our studio where the general public can place their $1 votes (all money donated to MACC Fund) and culminates with our Cute Kids Calendar. Ten dollars of the reduced session fee is donated to the MACC Fund, as well as 10% of everything purchased.

In a joint effort with The Marek Group of Waukesha and Bradner Smith & Company, an amazing portrait calendar is produced every year with our cute kids portraits and stories of children currently waging war against cancer. For only $10 you can own one of the beautiful calendars and again 100% of the proceeds are donated to the MACC Fund.

Mortensen Photography sends our sincere thanks to everyone who contributed to this effort which each year raises over $6,000 from the sessions and orders and over $4,000 from voting. If you would like to learn more about the MACC Fund, please click here.

Cute Kids Calendars are available at our studio, at Tadpoles and at local businesses such as Spargo Spa, Laacke & Joys and The Art of Hair. Find out more about the Cute Kids Calendar Contest here.

We would like to give a special thanks to The Marek Group for a fantastic job of printing the calendars and contributing the calendars to The MACC Fund. Without great support from local businesses such as theirs we could not make this fundraising event happen.
