At the start of every year photographers around the world gather their best images for the largest photo contest in the industry. This year we decided to see what it was all about and entered a small handful of images. These images were in several different categories and are all voted on anonymously. Of the handful of photos we submitted to the contest we are very excited to say that one of our images places in the top 30% for its category. Now placing top 30% may not seem like a lot, but it is the top 30% in a category of 39,479 images. That’s a lot of photos!
Mr. Mason! Kerri and Mason’s mom (Vanessa) go all the way back to elementary school friends. She was so excited when we booked Mason for his newborn session. Mason had the coolest tractor setup and he fought to stay awake for most of the session. At the time Layla (our youngest daughter) was only a few weeks old, so she joined us in the studio. The babies must have been in sync because around the time the Layla started getting hungry and tired Mason finally crashed. He was sound asleep and we were able to set up for the pose. Mason is snuggled into his daddy’s arms and sleeping like a champ…. but what you don’t see is Vanessa pinning back dad’s shirt on one side while Kerri is on the other side pinning back the rest of his shirt while nursing Layla, all while leaning as far as they can to be out of the frame. It was quite comical to see, but the end result was exactly what we had envisioned.
