Third place! I was crazy excited and just couldn’t believe it. While I was taking the pictures I didn’t even have the (anything but a face) challenge in mind. I simply wanted to capture my baby girl in her last true moments as a baby. However, she had no intention of posing one last time for me in her crib. Almost as if there was a magnetic pull in her feet pulling her to the ground, she would immediately climb out. So instead I decided to capture her at her current self. A fearless girl that is growing up before my eyes much too quickly.
That being said, I thought it would be fun to just participate along with the challenge for the sake of being part of an incredible online photography community. There were hundreds and hundreds of amazing entries. I really didn’t think I had a chance, but I adored the image so didn’t really mind.
When I found out I placed in the top 10 I was ecstatic!
Remember the 30 Day Photo Challenge I was posting here? Well…
I was hesitant about participating in this challenge because I was rather nervous about disclosing some personal thoughts and feelings that I haven’t blogged about here before. But I realized that this is my blog and it is about me, so why not? I’m glad I went ahead and went for it. I felt relieved once I completed it because I finally felt like I could be myself on my own blog.
This new boost of confidence is exhilarating. Being myself and having this new courage is pretty darn cool.
