The annual summer seminar for Texas professional photographers was held June 24th to June 27th in Kerrville and nearly 350 prints were entered into the competition.
The winning print titled “Three Heartbeats” was captured at the Nounou Photography portrait studio. The judging began Sunday afternoon and according to one of the judges who is a Master Craftsman Photographer, “Three Heartbeats” was an extraordinary print with amazing expression and feeling. The portrait emphasizes the symbolic relationship between a husband and wife awaiting the birth of their child. The couple who is portrayed in the image is also from Katy, Texas and was referred to Nounou Photography last August from another satisfied customer.
