First-Time Fair Exhibitor

Last fall I was asked to enter some of my photography into the local county fair to help out the county fair association. For every entry the fair gets, they receive points towards more funding from the state. I had never entered anything before, so the experience was new to me… and surprisingly rewarding!

Since the trio of fairs the photos went through in 2018, a few people have asked me to compile a list of the photos and the ribbons they won so that they could be viewed in one place! I’m finally getting around to doing that in the little bit of downtime I’ve had between sessions of photos! The fall was incredibly busy with mini sessions and holiday photos!

I don’t remember in which category each photo was entered. The categories varied from level to level. But for my first time, ending up with 23 blue ribbons, 7 red ribbons, 5 white ribbons, 2 best of show ribbons and 1 grand champion ribbon was a pleasant surprise… and a bit of ego boosting and disappointment for a certain donkey (cat).

Thank you again to everyone who encouraged me to keep taking the photos to each level of the fair circuit! Your support means a lot to me!

Portfolio Updates + Now Offering Prints

Shooting photos and designing pieces have kept me pretty busy (not complaining one bit, I love it!), and updating the website just didn’t happen as frequently as I hoped. (I mostly updated the Facebook page with new photos). But that’s officially changing!

The photography tab of the portfolio just got a massive update this weekend with nearly two years worth of special moments I’ve captured. Click through the site to see individual galleries for each session! A major update is also ongoing with many previously unseen design projects! Keep checking the site this week to see more!

More good news!

I am now offering photo prints, canvasses, books and more specialty items for photography clients!

In addition to photo prints, I can now offer printed holiday cards, invitations and more to go along with custom designs! Contact me for more info on pricing for printed items.

I am looking forward to upcoming photo sessions in the coming weeks and will be updating the website portfolio with each session as I share the albums to Facebook!

Let me know what you think, and if you’re in need of a logo, any special designs, or a photo session, hit the contact button on this site or on the Facebook page.

Thanks to you, and everyone who has supported my creative endeavors over the past few years!
