Little Isla's photo was picked from more than 170,000 entries sent in to the search. And she has her dad to thank for submitting her winning picture. He explains that he sent the picture of Isla in to the contest after coming across it while scrolling through pictures on his phone back in September.
“I had been taking photos of the kids that day and snapped Isla in a perfect pose while she was horsing around on the living room couch,” he said. On a whim, he submitted the photo to Gerber.
Isla’s family won a $50,000 cash prize and $1,500 in Gerber’s Childrenswear, and as the “Spokesbaby,” Isla may even star in some upcoming Gerber ads.
Congratulations to Isla, her parents and big sister, Nora!
