Judges Comments

  • You wait at great lengths for these types of moments. Really good lighting (the most successful type lighting, which emphasizes and supports the image and not the style of lighting). The photographer has shown how this child views a wedding. The child is standing around in her underwear and is making the bride and groom dolls hug. It is very innocent and sweet. I like the richness of the pattern against such a simple child. There's something sweet and innocent about this toddler gently bringing the wedding dolls into a hug position. I'd love to know what she's thinking.
