Immortalize Your Favorite Baby Photo on the Cover of National Geographic Magazine

National Geographic Magazine

Picture your baby here

I don’t know about your kids, but I pretty much think my kids should be front and center on pretty much every magazine and poster. They‘re that cute. Well, I think so, anyway.

The cover story in the May 2013 edition of National Geographic explores a possible genetic link to human longevity, and postulates based on what scientists are now discovering that babies born today could live to be 120. 

Photographing babies for the story was a challenge, but the results were so adorable that NatGeo decided that parents like me who believe their babies deserve to be splashed on magazine covers could have their big chance.

Click through for the four babies who made it onto the cover, and how you can get your little one on there, too:
