I Heart Faces | Beautiful Black and White

I am so excited for the exciting changes/additions to the I Heart Faces photo contests!  I think it will improve our photography greatly to be competing for actual prizes!  Although, I thought it was hard before to pick a photo….

…I may actually lose sleep now!  LOL

But raising 3 children, and 3 foster children, 2 with special needs….

…that cash prize could come in real handy!  HA!

So here is my choice for this week’s contest:

My oldest daughter…scruffy and winded from playing at the lake….

…and oh, so content!

I encourage you to check out the UPDATES to I Heart Faces and join along!  You don’t have to be a professional, and you don’t have to use a professional camera.  It will also make you a better photographer!
