Every year there are the International Photography Awards and this past year was my second time entering as a professional and I was very excited to find out that I received four Honorable Mentions! I've posted my entries below to check out and I will be entering once again this year and hoping that this year will be the year that I place! This is still one of my favorite photos, if you look at it from any angle it looks like the gun is pointing at you! This photo "Shot" received the Honorable Mention in the Special category.
This series was my Raw Couture series. I love fashion and fashion/editorial photography so did this series to show how so my couture dresses often take shape, which is through draping. I did the draping and my amazing make-up artist Jacqueling did the make-up! We shot this an afternoon in my studio and it was so much fun, plus Jeanie is such an awesome model! This series received the Honorable Mention in Advertising-Fashion.
This is one of my favorite photos of my grandmother "Baba," it was actually shot for an assignment when I was in photography school and I loved it so much that I wanted to enter it. This is such a representation of my baba, she usually will pose for photos and this one is so natural. It received the Honorable Mention in People-Portrait.
These photos were from a wedding I photographed last fall, I aptly named the series "A Country Wedding." This is still one of my favorite weddings I've photographed. It received an Honorable Mention in People-Wedding.
