Today I have some special news to share: below image of my daughter Nele has won a Merit Award in the International Image Competition of the NAPCP (National Association of Professional Child Photographers) in the category ‚Child‘! I’m thrilled and honoured to have my image elected by a blue-ribbon panel of expert judges, among thousands of entries – and my daughter Nele is very proud, too! :)

I photographed Nele in the Chinese Garden on Chinese New Year – I’d say that was a pretty good start into this lunar year! She was very patient with me and twirled, and twirled, and twirled… until I had the shot that I wanted. She’s not always willing to humour me („Mom, not AGAIN!!“), but I think this recognition might just improve my chances of getting her cooperation again in the future. Fingers crossed!
