CT Children Photographer ~ Supermodels Unlimited Model {Ellington CT}

Bri’s session was nothing short of a photographer’s dream with a beautiful model! What we were able to capture in our time together was truly amazing! Considering the weather conditions we encountered it all snow, rain, bright sun and a beautiful sunset to top it off.

I feel honored to have had the opportunity to capture new images for Bri’s modeling portfolio. She’s quite the accomplished young lady. Bri has been modeling since she was 10 years old. Her career started out with Wilhelmina in New York City.  She is presently with CT Kids.  Some of Bri’s work includes print, commercials, runway, film and recently TV.  Bri has worked with Supermodels Unlimited, Parsons School of Design, Target, Jessica Simpson and recently Law and Order SVU. She’s a perfect combo of super talent and beauty.
I would like to thank Spielman’s Cabin Hill Greenhouses and Renaissance Ridge Farm for allowing us to photograph on their beautiful properties.
There are so many incredible images from Bri’s session but here are some of my favorites. Enjoy the scroll through you will see what I mean.  A rising star.

Connecticut Photographer Top 100 in International 2015 Shoot and Share Photo Contest

Last month I share with you how I entered a huge international contest. I’m so excited to say that Joyful Reflections Photography placed among the top 100 photographers in this years Shoot and Share Photo Contest.

As I mentioned in my last post, over 112,000 images from over 200 countries were submitted. I was so extremely happy when I received an email that one or more of my images made it into the Top 100 in one or more categories. It’s extremely humbling to be honored and recognized in this contest and I truly have my husband to thank for pushing me to enter.  

So here are a few of the images which made it into the final top 6% and top 100 entries. A big shout out to Shoot and Share for all their hard work in making this contest fair for all 6,000 plus photographers who entered. What have I learned from this incredible experience?  I will definately be entering my work in more photo contests.
