After nearly a dozen years, and thousands of images, I decided that this would be the year that I would finally start entering pictures in print competitions. Because this was my first year entering images in any type of competition, I was eligible to win "Rookie of the Year" and guess what...I won! I also won two first place awards in the wedding category (wedding album and wedding portrait), a second place award in the child category, and Court of Honor at the Intermountain Professional Photographers Association banquet. The awards are beautiful! I'm still in shock!
