Calese Stowe

Overall Winner

Calese Stowe (and mom) received a complimentary photography session with Little Sunshine Photography

Her sweet grin melts the hearts of loved ones and strangers alike.

And it’s one of the adorable features that earned 11-month-old Calese Stowe top prize in Gulf Coast Woman’s Cutest Baby Photo Contest for 2023.

The tot’s parents, who hail from Ocean Springs, entered her in the contest. All parents believe their child is the cutest, acknowledges Calese’s mom, Carissa Stowe, “and we definitely fall into that category.”

“Calese has a beautiful smile that brings joy to our hearts every time she smiles,” Stowe says. “We wanted to share her smile with everyone on the Coast.”

The proud mom added that she and the family are very excited about Calese’s win, for which she faced some stiff competition.

“All of the kids in the contest were adorable,” Stowe says, “and we appreciate everyone who voted!”
