The image I submitted is of Angelina Aucello, a beautiful girl and a budding actress. I think the hollywood style really suits her. This is one of my favorites of this style of image so I'm really hoping it wins! Makeup was done by MRS Beauty, hair and styling by me! This is also a merited image in the Professional Photographers of American Print competition!
Angelina has such a sweet heart. She wrote me this short testimonial a long while ago and I don't think I ever posted it on my blog. It's been on my facebook (along with a before and after) here: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=155286782002&set=a.126038242002.119341.87975462002&type=1 but I wanted to share with you how great she is and why I want her on the cover!
I try not to bother people too much for votes since it's for fun anyway, but it's been nice to hover around the first 5 pages without really asking. If you get a chance and wouldn't mind taking a moment, please vote for me at http://www.ppmag.com/cover-contest-2011/vote/11577/
... Everyone voting (for anyone on the site - hopefully a 5 star for me, too!) is entered to win an Ipad 2 =D I don't believe they spam, at least my mom has never told me they did - the only ask for your email and name to sign up (which is so you don't vote multiple times). It's a great organization/Magazine, so I trust them =) If you are a photographer, get your bum on there and submit something, too! Competition is great for the soul - especially if you don't make it. Just get up and try, try again. Good Luck and Thanks!
