I ♥ Faces Contest - Professionals

5.18.2009


I had a little bit of extra time and non-nausea this morning, so I thought I would make an entry into this week's I ♥ Faces "Blurb Book Photo" contest with a one-photo submission under the category, "My Favorite Face Photo."

It is so hard to choose a *best* face photo out of the hundreds (probably thousands) I have shot, so I decided keep the photo I chose to one of my own photos and not one of my wedding photos. I am going with an old one of my daughter that I just can't get over, from the 9-month-old challenge in her clear, deep eyes to the little tongue peeking out of her precocious mouth. I haven't developed a lot of photos over the years I've been shooting, but this is one favorite that I plan to hang as soon as I ever get a frame for it!

I'm nervously entering the shot under the "professionals category" because I know I have done a lot more shooting than most amateurs, and while I still consider myself an amateur in so many ways, I have been paid for most of my work, and that makes me a professional purely by definition.

I am submitting this photo into the www.iheartfaces.com Blurb Book photo contest. I am granting I ♥ Faces permission to use my photo in a printed version of a book for commercial use and possibly advertising of a photo book on both the Blurb and I ♥ Faces web sites.

This is a beautiful shot of Piper. I also entered the professional pool with trembling hands. I dont' think of myself that way, but I do get paid most of the time so you know. I certainly consider you professional, though Kelly. I'm glad you had a nausea free moment to enter. Such a great shot.
