Adorable babies wanted! Johns Hopkins Children's Center benefit captures photos of cute kids

Posted at 9:38 AM, Jul 13, 2018

Photographers will be out in Arundel Mills this weekend hoping to capture snapshots that may show "America's Most Photogenic Baby." 

The event is a fundraiser for Johns Hopkins Children's Center. The contest is in its 25th year. 

Photographers will be at the Old Navy Outlet Store from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. The search for "Baltimore's Most Photogenic Baby" can include infants up to kids age six. 

Once a child's picture is taken, parents can view it on a computer screen and decide which of four categories of competition it best fits: precious, comical, beautiful, or fashionable. The photos will then be posted to for judging and voting.

It costs $35 to enter the contest, but parents get to keep their photos, and the proceeds go to benefit the Johns Hopkins Children's Center. Parents can preregister at

Past winners have appeared in movies, TV commercials, magazines, and more.
