The photograph(s) that made the cut { Maryland Child Photographer }

Each year I set up what I aim to achieve in my photography.  This year I planned to enter my images into a number of contests to see how they did, and the entry dates came and went and I got busy.  I remembered a few and was notified that one of my portraits was selected as a finalist for farms and barns.  This is one of my favourite portraits of my daughter near a local farm.  I love the farm in the background, I drive past it almost every day and it makes me think so much of how time must have once been.

The portrait below was also a finalist in a contest for the category Children and Animals.
