We are SO far behind on our summer Fresh Class contests! So we will have the June class today and in just a few weeks we’ll hold the July class contest. We’re still unsure if we’re going to offer any more but we do have a list started of people interested so feel free to let me know if you want to be added to the list… just means you’ll be the first to know if we do offer a class!
So just to remind you all, there are two parts to this contest! The first is what we’re calling the “popular vote”. That’s where YOU come in! Help these ladies out and vote on your favorite FRESH image by leaving a comment on this post! Feel free to tell them what you love about their image as well! The winner of the popular vote gets a $25 gift card to a local store or restaurant of their choice!
The second part of the contest is a much much bigger deal! We’ve asked some of our friends in the business to help us by voting on their favorite as well. They will email us not only their winning vote but also a personal critique for each of the photos that we will email to the women next week. The winner of the pro-votes will win either a full family session with us AND a low-res disk of all images OR a few hours of our time teaching them more about their cameras or working with them to photograph their own children or whatever! We feel honored that so many of our peers are willing to take the time to help us vote on these!
So for now… here are our great entries for our June class! Remember, the theme was FRESH!
They are all BEAUTIFUL. But I LOVE #2 with the water arc and the light hitting the child’s forehead. Shows the child’s face curves perfectly. I just want to kiss that face!
Number 3 is awesome!
OOPS – I meant number 2!

I like number one…obviously the best picture. The eyes have it. JIM
#1. Amazing eyes.
#4! Colors artfully arranged, focus point is great–makes the basket appear to float midair, ready to collect them off the line. Can almost smell that fresh scent of sun-dried laundry.
I vote for #3. Mudbugs and summertime just go together and make me think…FRESH

The composition of #4 is brilliant!
#1 – I can’t think of anything more fresh than watermelon!
#4 because it looks just like my back yard right now! HA!

I’m going to have to go with #1. In over a hundred degree weather here in Texas, that fresh watermelon looks great!!
My vote is for #4.
#3 is so original, never would have thought to take it from that perspective.
#3 this screams summertime,love it!!!!
They are all brilliant with each offering something different. I hate to have to choose just one but the subject matter and depth of #3 puts that one over the top for me. What a great moment to have your camera in hand!
#3. I’m a large mouth bass and I love crawdads!
I love picture #3. Reminds me of many summers that I had as a kid.
All of them are great, but #3 gets my vote!
I like #2.
Nice, #3 is my vote.
#3 for sure.
I Love #3!!!! It totally represents fresh…love the innocence of this shot
