There is a magazine for photographers called Mozi Magazine (www.mozi-mag.com) and it is run by some of my favorite photographers, including the amazingly talented Jean Smith. A few months ago, they held an Instagram #happy image contest. I was currently editing one of my favorite photos from our portfolio sessions and decided to throw it in the ring on a whim. And I won!! They shared my image on their Instagram account (Instagram Post) and I won a free copy of the most recent child and family edition of Mozi Magazine. Honestly though, just being acknowledged by photographers that I have a crazy amount of respect for rendered me speechless. Thanks to Mozi Mag and Jean Smith for making my year!
Below is the image that won, in black and white. It is the visual definition of #happy, if I do say so myself.
