Selected as top photographer of the week – newborn portrait
Yay! Summerana announced this week’s top photographer of the week, and I won one of the award spots with this gorgeous portrait of little Luna. This week’s Top Photographers of the Week contest theme was “pink,” and this image was perfect! This was her second birthday session, and she was showing me who’s boss 😉 There were so many adorable images from this session, but this seemed like the perfect portrait to represent her loud, confident, super cute two-year-old personality.

Being recognized for my child portraiture feels so good ❤ As a photographer, I put a lot of love and effort into each and every photograph I create, and knowing that others are seeing and enjoying my art makes my heart happy! 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 child portrait!
Why do I participate in photography competitions?
Every once in a while I jump in and submit an image into 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!
