May 2023 Top Photographer of the Week award – Maine Maternity!

May 15, 2023

Stacy Knapp Photography was selected as Summerana’s “Top Photographer of the Week” for a Maine maternity photo submitted during this week’s theme: motherhood.

Yay! Summerana announced this week’s “Top Photographer of the Week” winners, and I won one of the coveted spots with this stunning portrait of this Maine mama, her toddler son, and her beautiful belly bump. This week’s Top Photographers of the Week contest theme was “motherhood,” so you can see why I submitted this as the best maternity photo for this theme 🙂 Just look at that gorgeous teal gown! And her little boy’s face! So cute! (You should have seen him just moments before climbing around under the gown 😉 ) Don’t have a gown like this in your closet? Not to worry 🙂 I provide all of the luxury gowns used in my in-home and on location maternity sessions. During your maternity design consultation I’ll show you all of the gowns in my client closet that you can choose to make you feel like the mama goddess you are. Remember: I bring everything we need for the perfect portraits of your baby bump — gowns, sitting props, backdrops, floors, lighting, and sometimes even crowns!

Being recognized for my maternity photography work is the best ❤️. 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 gorgeous maternity photo!

Why do I participate in photography competitions?

Every once in a while I jump in and submit an image into newborn and maternity 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!
