2019 Photographer & Artist of the Year
Last night at the Florida Professional Photographer’s convention, Focus, I had the most amazing night of my professional career! I won, not only the Photographer of the Year, but also, the Artist of the Year! I am so grateful to FPP, PPA and my local guild BPPA for the many years of education they have offered to help shape me into the Photographer I am today. I love the many friends I’ve made along the way and want to thank the many mentors who have taken the time to help me grow. You know who you are and I don’t want to start naming them in case I leave someone out.
The outpouring of excitement and praise last night from my fellow photographers means more to me than you could ever imagine. It was such a hard decision to walk away from nursing two years ago for fear of failure in this industry, I am glad I chose to take a chance!
