Loudoun County | Maternity Shoot & Share Finalist
So I entered into my first Shoot & Share contest (2016) and I was so excited to get some feedback from this community. I actually thought that I deleted my account by accident after I had submitted about 35 photos, and I was super bummed. Voting was still fun and I really loved seeing all the different styles of the photographers. But, I thought I couldn’t login so I wasn’t participating to the fullest.
Then I received a tag on IG from @LauraHenderson_makeup, which was the Makeup Artist for this sweet second time Mom-to-be. I thought it was a mistake, that she meant to tag someone else. I clicked on it and quickly realized that THAT was my photo and it had a ‘FINALIST’ label on it. My breath quickly caught into my chest and I couldn’t quite exhale it all out! I was shocked and completely caught off-guard!
Of course, I texted everyone I knew with the link! I had to share this AMAZING news with everyone I knew! It was quite timely too. Sometimes I get a little discouraged, like many people do. Getting a little recognition and appreciation goes such a long way. It really made my day, week, month!
This was taken at 48 Fields in Leesburg just at sunset. The flare was caught in camera since the I was shooting straight into the sun. If you’re looking for a Farmhouse or Rustic location for a wedding or party, they have just renovated and it’s gorgeous! Or if you are looking for a Professional On-site Make-up Artist check out Laura Henderson here.
Here are a couple more from this session!
