Selected as top photographer of the week – newborn portrait
Yay! Summerana announced this week’s top photographer of the week winners, and I won one of the coveted spots with this gorgeous portrait of beautiful baby S. This week’s Top Photographers of the Week contest theme was “blue,” and this image was perfect! I’m not going to lie, this pose took some patience with this little one. But: as always the extra effort to make sure baby was super comfortable and sleepy paid off in this amazing photograph of her in this adorable shark bonnet and her little shark lovie looking like she’s swimming in the sea. Yes, this entire setup is available to clients. I always bring all of the props, backdrops, floors, and lighting that we need to capture the most perfect portraits of your newborn!

Being recognized for my newborn photography work is pretty amazing evert time 💙 As a photographer, knowing others are enjoying my art fills my heart and brings me so much joy. This is one of the many reasons I love doing what I do. Thank you, Summerana, for selecting me as a top photographer of the week for this newborn portrait!
Why do I participate in photography competitions?
Every once in a while I jump in and submit an image into newborn and baby photography portrait competitions. I’m always learning, always growing as an artist, and I believe this is part of the improvement process: getting honest feedback on my work and how it might be improved. This particular photography contest is theme based, so it’s particularly fun to figure out which of my recent portraits might best fit the theme and be chosen as a winner!
