Shoot & Share Results: Sarah


Entering contests is always so emotional. Like every other artist I am confident in what I do but putting yourself up against every photographer in the world is slightly intimidating. I am always a little nervous but so happy when I see the results. This year’s contest for shoot and share was enormous. Over 413,000 images were submitted from nearly every country in the world. I am honored to say I placed in the top 100 for one photo and had 4 finalists this year, an additional 15 in the top 10%, 15 in the top 20, and 5 in the top 30%. Meaning out of the 48 images I submitted 40 of them placed in the top 30% or higher. Not too shabby considering the size of the competition. The contest is online blind voting and there were over 50 million unique votes. Thank you to everyone who supports me every year! I am so proud of what I do and thankful for the opportunities that we have to work with so many couples and families every year.
