I Heart Faces | Heart Photo Challenge Winners

This week’s photo challenge was full of touching sentiment, beautiful moments and all of us wearing our hearts on our sleeves! Such a nice way to remember Valentine’s Day.

Special thanks to this week’s Guest Photographer Judges, Ben and Laura Harrison from Harrison Studio! They said of the winning photo by Kate T Photography: We loved the “rule of thirds” composition, the authenticity of the subject with windswept hair, and how it felt like a real moment captured in time.

1st Place: Kate T Parker

2nd Place: Shabby Jack Photography

We loved this image for its technical quality in lighting & editorial feel .. and how the subjects eyes “grab” the viewer.

3rd Place: MF Fotografia

We loved the composition of this image along with the creative use of camera blur to add interest and anonymity to the subject.

4th Place: Itsy Bitsy Creation

Who couldn’t love this child?! We enjoyed the simplicity of the framing, the composition and and the subject’s curls and eyes make us melt 🙂

5th Place: Triple the Sugar

We loved the interaction in this image … from the hands touching to the child looking up … a great natural moment.

6th Place: Michelle….Ma Belle

7th Place: Grethel Van Epps

8th Place: This Little Blog of Mine

9th Place: Summer Murdock

10th Place: Kylie Morgan

I am so honored that my photo was among those chosen this week. All of the photos were fabulous and I’m sure the judges had a hard time deciding the winner. Thank you so much.

Wow, thank you! So happy to be picked! I was in awe of the submissions this week, so many beautiful hearts were captured! Good job to all!

Oh, thank you for noticing my shot and making it a fave. 🙂 So VERY many amazing submissions again this week. I do LOVE every one of the judges’ pics, and if I’m not mistaken, I commented on almost all their blogs over the course of the week. ♥
