2018 Photographer of the Year |Austin Maternity & Newborn Photographer

2018 Photographer of the Year

2018 was a wonderful year.  I met so many amazing, wonderful people.  I had the opportunity to capture newborns, first family portraits, the glow of expectant mothers, the anticipation of expectant parents, milestones of baby’s first year, and so many other great things.

I competed in print competition at the local, state, and international level.  I won ribbons and trophies for my images.  The prints I entered were all work I’ve done with clients.  One image scored 100 at the International Print Competition and was in the top 10 of the General Portrait category and nominated for a Grand Imaging Award.  I was among some amazing photographic artists and it was an honor to just be recognized as being in the top ten.
