I Heart Faces

couple weeks ago, I was contacted by Angie of, a weekly photography site focused on capturing faces and their various emotions. Each week readers can enter their photos into a contest and a guest judge will pick a winning photo. Well, this week I'm blessed to say I'm the guest judge. Hollllla!

As many blog readers know, I adore capturing people in their element, so I Heart Faces was super exciting for me to be a part of! If you'd like to enter the contest, CLICK HERE to get more information and submit your photos. The contest ends tomorrow at 9pm Central Time, so get crackin'! I can't wait to view your work...Happy Contest-ing!

Holly Steen - This was a fantastic idea and website to make it all happen. It was such a collaboration of pro and hobbyist. I think the best part was having such a sense of community and everyone having such wonderful words of encouragement for one another. Spot on! I heart faces!  07.04.09 - 9:20am
Denise Saucedo - Whooohoooo!!! Good luck choosing... soooo many great photos! I entered one of mine after reading this blog... had to put up a temp flickr acct as my blog is under construction but I really wanted to enter and will continue to do so now that I know about I heart Faces! Thanks for being you!!!  07.02.09 - 12:24pm

Sharon Snow - Dear Jasmine, I have long believed that old cliche 'everything happens for a reason'; but some days is just hits you upside the head and the only words that come out are: 'WoW'. When I get a moment I try, usually at last minute, to throw up a photo on the I heart Faces challenge. (Two kids and some major moving around this past year leave me unable to join in as cratively or regularly as I'd like, but I try). This week, taking a secret coffee break in our teeny tiny Airstream on a less than appealing campsite in DC, I snuck away (all 6ft away) and checked out IHF. Along with throwing in a photo for the challenge, I took another stolen moment to check out your profile, and this is where that cliche jumped out at me. I have read your blog, checked out your website, read your old blog, and have to tell you - You are an inspiration in every meaning of the word. Super talented, funny, and wow, what a way with words you have, just simply - amazing and inspiring. Not sure where this is headed or maybe to scared and in denial, but I think you just opened a window for me that has been shut for too long now, and well...the days ahead are looking that little bit brighter. I don't usually share this stuff, but needed a way to say 'Thank You'. I bookmarked your blog and am a proud new follower. Also, just tried to add you as a friend on FB, please add me :) Blessings, Sharon.  07.01.09 - 8:50am
