Each year the International Association of Professional Birth Photographers (IAPBP) hosts a Photo of the Year contest.  I am proud to be a member of this fine organization and enjoy entering the contest each year.  The variety of judges are incredible, plus it is always fun to see the People’s Choice.  Sadly, however, this year my image did not make it into the top 100  to be voted on 🙁 But you should still go check out all the beautiful birth photos and vote on your favorite – and you don’t even have to feel bad voting for one that it not mine 😉  Click here to check out the contest.  And for your viewing pleasure, here is the image I submitted.  I tell you, I love love LOVE the interaction between husband & wife during labor.  I love the support, the looks of concern, the strength of working together.
