Awards and Publications I have been honored to received since 2007. The first award is from the Professional Photographers Association of America in 2007. That year I only entered in the International Competition and have not entered since. That year my print "Misty Reflections of Dawn" received a National Merit and was published in the "PPA Showcase" book.
All other awards shown in the slideshow above were received from the Virginia Professional Photographers Association's Annual State Print Competition in 2008, 2009, 2010 & 2011. Each year I have been blessed to bring home a Merit Print (Blue Ribbon) for Children's Portraiture and received (Red Ribbons) on all other prints which scored Above Average in their field of photography. I did not enter in 2012 or 2013. I am very pleased with my growth and will continue to strive for all Merit Prints in the years to come.
