Ahhhhh! I am jumping up and down in my pj's over here! This year I decided to submit some of my images into the Shoot & Share contest for the very first time and placed! It's a little intimidating how many images are submitted into this contest. There were over 180,000 photos from top photographers all over the world and around 25 million votes were cast. Honored doesn't even begin to describe how I felt when I got the news that one of my images placed 17th in the "Just the Guests" category!!! I am over the moon!
