I am beyond excited to share that one of my images was selected for display at the live print competition, Inspired Gallery Event, being held in Atlanta, GA on August 23, 2018. This event is being held by the National Association of Professional Child Photographers, or NAPCP, and all 100 images will be displayed at their headquarters for live judging. The purpose of this event is to inspire the creativity of NAPCP members and photographers around the world, while also providing an environment of collaboration and education. The three categories for submission were Color, Explore, and Water, and my personal image was submitted in the Color category under the title, "Perfectly Purple."
I loved this image and how the floral lace wrap looked so elegant draped around this sweet baby girl. I'm excited to select my professional paper for the print and have it matted and displayed for the competition. Final matted images will be displayed for judging in person, with the live reveal of winners at the Gallery reception. I would love to attend personally, but I will be 37 weeks pregnant at the time of the event, and would rather not make the event more exciting for reasons outside of announcing the winners.
Best of luck to all the other amazing photographers whose work was selected for this competition! I am so honored to have my work alongside yours and can't wait to see how the judging unfolds via the live event!
