Meet our “Lookin’ Sweet on Santa’s Lap” contest winners, this time not in tears

You may remember Ryne and his big brother, Logan, from our “Lookin’ Sweet on Santa’s Lap” photo contest over the the holidays. Needless to say, probably not Ryne’s best day, but we thought it so perfectly captured the annual rite of passage that is a photo op with the big guy.

Ryne seemed to be in much better spirits during the photo shoot his family won from the contest. Photographer Naomi Epstein went out in the snow with the Bartling Family, of Monee, and captured these stunning shots.
