Hey Friends! (Is anyone actually reading this stuff… If you post they will come… or something like that!)
I’m SO excited to be entering my first contest. I guess that’s another benefit of having a website eh, I can finally enter these great contests and share some of my favourite images.
If you are a lover of photography (and faces) check out I Heart Faces. It’s a great online community for photographers, new and seasoned, who help each other become better at their own craft. I’ve been following them for a while now, but this is the first time I’m entering one of their contests.
Of course, when I saw the contest was ‘Best Face’ my mind immediately went to my daughter. How could it not? In her short life here so far this kid puts out the most amazing facial expressions. And more than a few people have commented on her eye brow raising skills. HA!
For me, photography is all about trying to capture some moments of real life. A lot of them are full of smiles and happy days. And then there are the days where babies are fighting sleep, and mommies are on zombie mode because the last thing they would fight is sleep (sleeeeeeep, glorious, glorious sleeeeeep). The photo I’ve chosen reminds me of all the hours spent trying to get this adorable little munchkin to sleep. The rocking, the bopping, the nursing, the singing, the swaying, the cuddling, the crying (both of us).
