The Portrait Masters Awards

Last month, I entered one of my portraits in the Teen and Senior Portrait category of The Portrait Masters Awards.

More than 8000 portraits from all over the world were judged based on expression and connection, styling, composition, posing, lighting, overall technique and presentation, post-production, and focus.

The results are in, and I got great news!

I achieved Professional Standard and received a Bronze medal!!!!

To think I almost didn't enter... and now I can officially say that I am a professional portrait photographer.

Thank you all for your neverending love and support on my artistic journey.

Thanks to all my clients (most of them, friends now) for trusting me to document their most precious family memories, and help them elevate their businesses.

I love you and appreciate you all.

and while we are at it...

When was the last time you were professionally photographed?

My name is Odette. I am a professional portrait photographer and I would LOVE to photograph you!
