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!
