Week 19 - Blurb Photo Contest (Amateur)



So, our challenge this week was to pick our very best closeup face photo. It was an easy pick for me. This was one of my very first photos with my new camera and it literally brought me to tears when I saw it on the screen on my camera and then I DID cry when I got it downloaded. It's of my beautiful daughter, Hope. I love how messy her hair is and how you can see the tear coming from her eye (spent the day at the beach before this photo). I just love everything about it.

There's going to be a LOT of great entries this week so be sure and check them out at www.iheartfaces.com! Thanks for checking out mine!


I am submitting this photo into the www.iheartfaces.com Blurb Book photo contest. I am granting I Faces permission to use my photo in a printed version of a book for commercial use and possibly advertising of a photo book on both the Blurb and I Faces web sites.
