Evan Thorton, 3, of Lawrence, and Jaren Sharp, almost 2, of Tonganoxie, were given honorable mention in the McKenna Professional Imagining photography lab Tiny Tots contest.
Herb's Studio, where the children were photographed, has competed in the contest for five years.
``We were kind of surprised we had two,'' owner and photographer Tom Emmerich said. The contest had 9,770 entries, he said, and 500 winners.
Emmerich said the winners receive a certificate from the photo lab and a camera.
