Winner announced

Cheryl received over 200 entries into the contest! This morning, she emailed me her top ten choices out of the group and I chose my top five favorites from there. SO HARD TO DO THIS.

There were no names attached to most of the entries I saw, (except watermarks), so if you see your image here, please comment on this post and get in touch with either Cheryl or me!

FIRST PLACE: Just be complete.

SECOND PLACE: Just be grateful.

THIRD PLACE: Just be amazed.

FOURTH PLACE: Just be tranquil.

FIFTH PLACE: Just be free.

First place winner receives: Full workshop tuition to the May 14-16 Minneapolis Secret Workshop, a $1395 value. Workshop tuition includes:  a 2-day natural light photography workshop including live model shoot, photoshop editing training, Cheryl’s personal proofing actions, a live newborn photo session, Cheryl’s unflattened pricing PSDs, catered lunch both days, a workshop workbook and access to the secret forum for any questions you may have after the workshop.

And because Cheryl couldn’t stand not giving something to all five winners………

Runner’s up receive: Their choice of a one hour mentoring phone call with Cheryl OR 25% off the Minnesota workshop fee.

  1. Aw, c’mon! Does first place REALLY need the workshop? It’s soo good! :) Reminds me of the baby “F” shot Tara did. Love it! Great job to all. Maybe I’ll get a chance next year… how generous of Cheryl (no surprise!).
