August 08, 2012MILTON, Ga. – One of Milton's younger residents, Sarah Catherine Bowman, 3, was chosen as the "cover kid" for the June issue of Atlanta Parent magazine.
The "Cover Kids" contest is held annually by the publication. Atlanta-area families are invited to submit a photo of their child(ren) for consideration.
Last year, more than 600 entries were submitted. Of those entries, the magazine's talent panel narrowed the field from 600 to 50, then 20 and then a final six. Sarah was one of the final six children who earned a coveted cover during the publication's 2012 production. The magazine has a circulation of 100,000 copies per issue.
Megan and Andrew Bowman, Sarah's parents, learned last August that their daughter was chosen as a finalist.
"Sarah has always been a complete ham in front of the camera – she loves to be photographed and has a variety of expressions. When she marched into Studio 7, the magazine's hired photography firm in Roswell, she had everyone laughing as she cracked jokes, played with summertime props and sang anything and everything that came across satellite radio from Gotye to Adele," said mother, Megan Bowman.
While the family does not plan to pursue modeling outside of this local publication, it has been a neat experience, nonetheless.
"It's fun to drive around town and see my sister's face on magazine stands everywhere – we've seen copies outside the library, at the grocery store and even at the doctor's office," said 9-year-old Claire Bowman. "It's like wherever we go, there's my sister's face on the magazine."
