WPPI International Photography Competition Results

This was the first year I entered any photography competition and I decided to go big or go home.  I entered a few images into the WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International) International Photography Competition.  For weeks I was nervous, scared, second-guessing my choice of submissions, and wondered if I was good enough to go up against thousands of other photographers from around the world.  Just as I was taught as a young child, I went at it with gusto.  After all, the worst that would happen is a critique from an expert photographer on how to do it better next time.  What a deal!  So off went my submissions through the Internet.  For weeks I secretly hesitated opening my email inbox and then it finally happened.  Today.  I got thee email.  And to my surprise, one of my images scored high enough to earn an Accolade of Excellence!  I'm so thankful for that score and more thankful for the two that are in the portrait.  

Here is the winning image:  “After 43 years, still so in love”

Fueled by equal parts Earl Grey tea and passion, I spend my days capturing the kinds of images that make you stop, smile and ask time to please slow down. I believe in real moments and heartfelt conversations on the front porch. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. I believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come.
