Vote for My Self Portrait Contest Winner!

*The Voting Is Now CLOSED*
Please see the winner here
Oh my gosh!  I have NO CLUE what happened?  Is it March 4th already?!?  I haven't posted my self-portrait contest finalists yet and started my reader votes?!?  Where did the last week go?  What have I been doing?  Thank you to Texas Heather for slapping me in the face and waking me up for reminding me to get my butt in gear!

Leave a comment at the end of this post telling me which picture is your favorite.  Only one vote per person please.  Voting will close in one week (March 11th).  The winner will be announced March 12th.  I promise I won't forget this time!  The winner will receive a gift certificate to either Target or Walmart (winner's choice).

Without further ado, here are your four finalists:
Catharine from Bliss Photography's picks:

#1  Heather from Life with D and H  
Catharine loved "the texture and the contrast".
 

#2  Brandy from Not So Average Mama
Catharine loved "the tone and the eyes".

My picks: Oh this was sooo hard!  I liked them all.  I really did!  I guess if I have to choose two....

 #3  Heather from Musings on the Move 
And no, it's not because she reminded me to post the finalists...I chose her picture simply because of the originality of using a kitchen appliance for a reflection!  I think she pulled it off pretty well too!

#4  Lindsi from Our Lil' Kingdom 
I love that the spot color makes her stand out.  I also love that she had the guts to do a full body shot!
 
Ok, so that's the difference between a professional photographer and a mom with a camera...Catharine picks the technically good and artsy pictures, I pick the ones that are really original :)  

Which one is your favorite?  Vote for the winner by leaving a comment at the end of this post.

Thanks for letting me participate in this. Ultimately I am a mom with a camera, but seeing other women perform greatness with their cameras continues to inspire me. Fab job everyone!

I like Heather's best - thinking outside of the box!

I vote for Brandy. The color is unbelieveable and her eyes are such a gret focal point. By far the best!

Oops. I said Heather. I meant Brandy (red hair, great eyes).

Reagan said...

Love them all but my fav is Heather. The colors and texture are so rich. Love it!

I love Heathers picture. One of my favorite parts is the alphabet magnets....it is one of those moments in life that passes too fast, and she has captured that along with her beautiful face. Well done!

It was a tough one, though - so many beautiful women! And the photos were all done so well!

Pennie said...

I said Catharine, but I was reading the name above the picture...sorry! I meant Heather from Life with D & H - very sweet picture! (I've been on her blog - I didn't recognize her - I knew she was beautiful, but WOW!)

Kim @ What's That Smell? said...

I really did like them all, but my vote is for Brandy!

Stitchblade said...

I think the names being below the images is a bit confusing. Mainly because it looks like the first one has her name above the photo. I can see that other's had the same issue. Maybe label each photo above photo #1 name, etc?

Jamie H said...

Thanks for the feedback Stitchblade! I think I fixed it! At least I hope I did!

TellingDad said...

My vote goes out to #2, Not So Average Mama! They're all great but the eyes and hair with the fair skin suckered me in. :)

Arizona Mamma said...

I like number 1. Since there are two Heathers. I do like them both though!!

Deborah said...

Texas Heather!

Heather said...

I vote for #4. Lindsi's picture is so cute and I love that she is in color and the rest is black and white.
