I’m so stoked about this contest! Women & Teen girls are what I love the most about my job! The feeling I get from taking their picture and being able to show them just how beautiful I see them and the world sees them through my lens is the best! We live in such harsh and critical world these days and just to be able to have the opportunities given to us as photographers to really shine some positive feedback on women in general is such a blessing!

Just any FYI I also was getting a “no backlink” error during entry. To solve this be certain you have the I heart Faces Button and link already in place before entering your submission…I used to submit my entry and than add this info this no longer works 😉

@mhsands – If you are having problems with Inlinkz (the linky tool system) you need to contact them directly as we can’t help with this. You can contact them here (http://inlinkz.com/contact.php) and they are excellent about trying to help anyone who is having problems.
Thanks,

I see a lot of entries that have babies-little girls and then older teens. They are all cute but I think the “Snapshots by Melissa” picture is really wonderful, and the back-story/meaning behind it too!

I have tried submitting my entry many, many times and on different computers. I get all the way to pick your thumbnail and then nothing. The blog link shows no pictures. The direct link says there is no back link. Uploading from my computer looks as if it goes through, but it never shows up on the site (even 20 minutes later). I have tried both Mac and PC. My site is blogger with a dynamic template… any suggestions?

Melanie May 9, 2012

WOW! I would LOVE to get to play w/ another lens. My kit lens just isn’t doin it for me anymore. Lol)

Thanks you for the such an inspiring challenge & the chance to win!!

Happy (early) Mother’s Day to all those mama’s out there!

I couldn’t wait for May 8th for this contest to begin!! I had so many choices but this photo says it all. I will admit I had a little trouble uploading but FINALLY a SUCCESS!! Thank you for offering such a wonderful prize and I look forward to ALL the wonderful entries!!!

I entered as #231- which is a photo of my newly adopted daughter. This child is so full of joy . Her dress was perfect to reflect how I feel about her “SHE IS MY SUNSHINE” and “MAKES ME SMILE DAILY”.

Am I the only one that can not figure out the Tamron lens entry?! I’ve logged in correctly and now it wants me to enter my photo URL, but I haven’t a clue how to do that! I’ve refreshed the page and waited patiently, but nothing. Any advice please?
