A little while ago I entered a single newborn photograph into the inaugural Rise International Photography Awards, to have it critiqued by qualified and experienced photography judges.

This morning I received my results and I’m so happy

Importantly the result also included some invaluable feedback so I can improve and refine my photography skills and for that I am grateful.

This event aims to celebrate Maternity, Birth, Newborn, Baby, Children and Family photographers from across the world. Founded by Kelly Brown at Newborn Posing & More I’m looking forward to entering again next year. Thank you Kelly and the entire RISE team
