2013 Images by Kerri Portrait of the Year – ROUND TWO

Round two is upon us and the finalists will be announced shortly, but first I wanted to introduce my lovely guest judges.

1.  Up first is the fantastic Shelly Ferguson.  She is a wonderful person who can photograph a newborn baby like it’s nobody’s business.  Each time she posts an image, it makes me pause, breathe in and enjoy it.  Her newborn portraits are incredible (along with her other work).  I love her eye and her style so much.  Not overly frilly or fruffy (is that a word??).  She keeps her shoots simple, clean and beautiful.

Please take the time to GO AND CHECK OUT HER SITE, you will be happy you did.

2. Kelly Hosch, rocks it out in Temple Texas.  She is a family and wedding photographer and she’s awesome.  Her images are full of warmth and fun.  I met Kelly last year while attending a photography workshop in February.  Her big smile and geniune personality stuck with me and we’ve stayed in touch ever since.  When you’re on her site, you will notice her cutie daughter on there.  Such a little stunner.  I am so thankful she agreed to guest judge this contest.

Please take the time to GO AND CHECK OUT HER SITE, you will be happy you did.

3.  Rebecca Keller.  She’s the bomb, a brandnew mama to baby #2 (super cute Harrison to go along with her already super cute Owen) and she’s one of the most sought after family photographers in the Raleigh, NC area.  I also met Rebecca on my photography workshop last year.  We were partnered up for some of our shooting and we hit it off and stayed friends.  When you go to her site and view her images (make sure you do) you will notice that she has a real knack for making kiddos laugh when she is behind lens.  Her images make you really feel the connection between the people that she is photographing.

Please take the time to GO AND CHECK OUT HER SITE, you will be happy you did.

A HUGE thank-you to all the ladies above.  I really appreciate you taking the time to look through the finalists and selecting your favourites.  XOXOXOX
