I t's great seeing so many happy faces with great smiles. Over 30 parents submitted these photos of happy kid's faces. Congratulations goes to Kierstin from Hopewell Junction. Her mom submitted her wonderful photo for Hudson Valley Parent's Biggest Smile Contest. Her great smile won her and her family a professional photo shoot by Hudson Valley Parent's cover photographer Michael Bloom.
