2012 California Family Photographer of the Year | Santa Clarita Portrait Photographer

I have the most exciting news to share!!! The Professional Photographers of America and the Professional Photographers of California released competition results this week. I am super proud and humbled to share that I’ve been named the 2012 CALIFORNIA FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!! I am also the recipient of the Fuji Masterpiece Award for the state of California. The combined scores of the four images I submitted ranked in the top 20 for the Western District of the PPA and in the top 10 for the state of California. My image of little Freja with big sister Isabel was the big winner. Cassidy and Jake in the heart also received a merit and will be moving on to international competition. The Glover family smooching and sweet little Cassie rounded out my entries for this year. My images will hang at Pro Photo Expo in Pasadena in August and I’ll have some snazzy new plaques and trophies for my office :)
