WINNER! Kids photo competition in D-Photo Magazine

Super excited to learn that I won the kids photo competition in this issue of New Zealand's D-Photo magazine. The photo is of my daughter Ayva, who preferred the icing over the cake.

To get her into good light I pulled her over to a window and jumped on our dining table to capture her from above, which helped to reduce all other distractions that would have shown in the background if I'd taken it at eye level.
