One of my biggest goals in 2013 (among many!) is to get published and enter more contests. Last year, I was too intimidated to enter anything. There is a time in every photographer’s career when they feel they are not good enough, or not “as” good as everyone else out there. I know a lot of super awesome and super talented photographers out there who put my work to shame, and I sometimes forget that I shouldn’t be comparing myself to them. 2012 was the year that I really honed my own style, made a name for myself. My clients have started saying, “I can tell just by looking a photo that it is your work.” That means a lot to me.
So this week, to bring in the new year, I entered another contest from Association of International Boudoir Photographers. And I won! This is the image that won.
