I made a promise to myself that 2020 would be a year of growth. I want to push my boundaries and step out of my comfort zone. I want to learn, expand, and feel confident in my work. Part of challenging myself has been to put myself and my work out there more, and so I decided to enter a few photo contests through the 2020 Birth Photography Image Competition and The Motherhood Anthology. It has all been in good fun, but I was thrilled to have received 2nd place in Birth/Fresh 48 category of The Motherhood Anthology’s Photo Contest! It is such an honor to be amongst photographers I so respect and admire in this in this industry! This year is shaping up to be a bit different (um, biggest understatement EVER), but I’m soaking up the good where I can find it and this was definitely a high point of 2020 so far!
