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!


  1. This is BEAUTIFUL! I love the warm sun bathing the image and the golden glow of the whole photo! Nice!

  2. Beautiful view, stunning color, precious capture. It's wonderful!

  3. What a really sweet shot. Enjoy your class!!

  4. Beautiful! I LOVE the lighting.

  5. Gorgeous. It has a real 70's vintage look. Love it.

  6. Oh my goodness, I just love this so much!


Thanks for your comment. Have a great day!
