Ok, we have our finalists! I didn't want to be responsible for picking all three. It was way too HARD picking them out! So, we had two guest judges.  Let me introduce to you the judges and their picks.

Our first guest judge is Amber Augustin. She is photographer in the North Texas area. She volunteers for Now I lay Me Down to Sleep and was featured on Extreme Home Makeover. <--- Here's a video of her and her family. Check out her photography website here.  She takes beautiful pictures of families and children.

Amber said "I like the one that says Photographer:Jessie
It makes me think of my son picking flowers for me & I love the light in his many photographers miss that - I love catchlight in eyes :)

(A few of her honorable mentions were) the one with the reflection in the Christmas ball & the twins...& the Dad's hand with the little fingers wrapped around it & the beach...ugh - it was a hard choice! I had to just keep scrolling up & down & see which ones captured me the most often."


Our next judge is also a professional photographer. Jared Rey is my favorite wedding photographer! I love his eye for photography and editing! Take a look at his beautiful work. Anyone have a wedding coming up. ;) 

Here is what Jared said. "My vote is for Noelle Isaak - "Double Blessings". I love the natural light and wonderful lighting this image contains. I love the sweet nature of the babies and the cute expressions they each have."

 It really was hard to make a final decision! There were so many that stood out to me. I liked them all for different reasons but the one that stood out the most to me was Lindsay's! I love the sun flare and how she captured the innocence of a child. Beautiful!


Thank you to our guest judges Amber and Jared. Go visit their sites!  Thank you to everyone that entered! There were so many great pictures that entered. If yours wasn't a finalists don't get discouraged! I'm going to make this an annual event! Get your cameras out and get a head start!
