i heart faces photo contest: motherhood

A talented photographer that I go to church with is graciously starting up a weekly group to teach us more about photography and to take us on location to practice. I am so excited!!! I've been itching to get back into photography a little more.

So to kick it off, I thought I'd participate in a photo contest every now and then. If you've never heard of the website I Heart Faces, its a fun site that has photography tips, tutorials, and weekly challenges. The great part is that its for photographers of all skill levels. I consider myself amateur and once in a while get really lucky to capture a perfect shot in manual. Sometimes I struggle in manual, bit I still practice!

This weeks challenge at I Heart Faces is "Motherhood." (Click to see hundreds of beautiful entries already). Instantly, I thought of the pictures I took of my friend Tamara and her sweet daughter. She is a beautiful example of motherhood. Check out her post from the whole shoot we did. I love how she edited these, and is a beautiful photographer herself. (see the pics she took for me here).

So here is my entry for Motherhood. Thanks Tamara, for letting me enter this gorgeous picture of you!
