Shoot & Share contest 2017

This is the second year I have submitted images to the Shoot & Share contest. I have thoroughly enjoyed voting on the immense amount of talent I have seen, and even more, I have found pleasure in the inspiration I have gained! This world is so full of beauty it has truly been amazing to be an onlooker and a storyteller in the past year.  Here are some of my top finishers.

The total number of submissions were around 413,000. So many of my captures were inspired by other photographers, by the beauty all around us and everyday fleeting moments with my daughter. After all, she has always been my true inspiration. So it wasn't a surprise for me that all four of my top 10% were of my girl.
