I know there are six women out there wondering WHO won the *big* prize and today we will make you wait no further!
But first, we want to send out a BIG FAT THANK YOU to our guest judges!
Candice and Daniel Lanning of The Beautiful Mess in North Carolina… check out there AWESOME new logo and blog! Seriously one of the best logos I’ve ever seen in this industry! AND they are incredible wedding photographers! They are also expecting their FIRST baby and Candice couldn’t be any cuter! I can’t wait to watch them, via blogworld, become parents!
Tami Proffitt of Tami Proffitt Photography in Arizona… she is one of my online BFFs! She was totally instrumental in me gaining confidence with my work in the last few years and she is one of my favorite family photographers! Really, I care more about her friendship then her work but you should seriously check out her work too! 🙂 And her three kiddos are to die for gorgeous! I love when she blogs pics of her kids!
Rich and Alyssa Mattingly of Nickel City Studios in Buffalo… I can’t remember how I found Rich+Alyssa but I adore their blog! They have a super fun+unique style both in their wedding photographs and in the layout of their blog! And I love husband and wife teams… makes me wish Chris didn’t hate my camera so much! HA! I love that they share their life AND their work!
Pascale Wowak of Pascale Wowak Photography in California… Pascale has been featured here before because she has an AWESOME book for new photographers wanting to go pro… she’s also an incredible family photographer who I’ve gotten to know pretty well over the last few years! She is as sweet as she seems on her blog and one of my favorite things she does is use her own kids in a lot of product shots she does for clothing designers! To be able to work with your own kids is awesome in my book!
Jordan Krogman of Jordan Krogman Photography in South Dakota… Jordan has become a good online friend and out of any photographer I know she gets the most amazing everyday images of her kids! I love that! I’m not sure she’s taking clients currently since she has 3 littles at home AND a full-time nursing job but check out her blog b/c you will instantly fall in love with her family! AND her design sense is amazing!
Betsy King of Betsy King Photography in Indiana… Betsy is another one of my online buddies and is ready to POP with baby #2! She’s an awesome family photographer but my favorite work of hers is with her high school seniors! She seriously rocks those sessions! When you head over to her blog though you will INSTANTLY fall in love with her son, Miles! He is the cutest little guy you’ve ever seen!
So what we did was ask each of these photographers to critique and rate the images (girls, we will email you all the critiques soon!) and although there were votes for both #4 AND #5…
The WINNER of either a full family session with low-res disk OR 2 extra hours with us doing whatever you’d like….
TAMMY with #5!
Thanks to all the girls from the May Class that participated and Tammy… email me to let me know what you want your prize to be! Congratulations!
