The Smile House – Photography by Laura Kay Wootan » Welcome to my photography blog where I share clients sessions and my life experiences on my little corner of the web.

My Shameless Brag – I’m a finalist!

I’m a member Professional Photographers of America. PPA is one of the biggest professional orgaizations for photographers. They recently had a contest for the cover of their monthly magazine. I entered a photo that I call “Coffee with Katie.” Turns out they had 50,000 entries!! I came in 5th place! Sooo I just wanted to share my exciting news! I’m stoked! I can’t wait to get the magazine in my hands!

I thought your image was totally worth being on the cover. I LOVED it. I bragged about my winning photo too. I was the one who placed 4th. I thought your photo and my photo were the 2 best out of the top 5. :) Congrats!!
I enjoyed looking through your blog. Your work is really beautiful.

YAY!!!!!!! This is awesome. I am not surprised at all to see you in the magazine…only surprised you didn’t win 1st place! Congrats!

I am so proud of you. I sent the link to all my friends – now that is shameless. And I think your picture should have been number 1.
