I am so, SO pleased and excited to share with you all that I just received news today of having placed THIRD in the international image competition for the National Association of Professional Child Photographers (NAPCP). The image I entered was for the ‘Tween’ age category and was chosen out of potentially thousands of images that were entered.
Third place in a competition like this is mind blowing to me. Its something greater than I’ve ever achieved before. My images were considered along with the work of so many talented and well respected Child and Family Photographers from all over the world. So I’m excited. I’m surprised. And most of all I am grateful. Grateful for how wonderful 2011 has been for me. Grateful for wonderful supportive family and friends near and far who continue to support and encourage me in all areas of my life including photography. And grateful for the little push of encouragement this gives me to keep trying to achieve BIG things. It’s left me feeling more eager than ever to learn, grow and improve.
Thank you, thank you, thank you to the NAPCP, the judges as well as all of you celebrating along side me this week! I have much to be thankful for.
