SHOOT & SHARE CONTEST

Putting your work out there to be judged can be terrifying. Yet tens of thousands of photographers were brave enough to enter hundreds of thousands of photos in this year's Shoot and Share Contest. It's a free (!) photo contest where you can enter photos in a variety of categories and the results are decided by weeks of public voting.

If you want to see all the results and be overwhelmed by beautiful inspiring photography, go here: http://shootandshare.com/photos.

Thank you!

Love, Me

This post is a chance for me to brag on everyone who collaborated with me or was bold enough to be themselves in front of my camera this year. You are all amazing, and some of you are in photos that placed in the contest! Check out my top images below and the teams that helped make them possible.

I entered mostly images from styled shoots, but I'm proud that the one wedding image I entered made it to the Top 20%! I wish I could have entered images from every shoot and I wish I had had more time to pick images (I did not know about this until the last day to enter). Some of my favorites did not make the cut, but I still love them all the same.

Now let's get to creating lots of amazing photos for next year's contest! I can't wait!
