Sunday Snapshot :: weekly winner 4

Lots of fantastic images this week.

Here are my very favorites.

From Cheri at Unexpected Paths

Gail at Aging with Grace and Strong Will

Kam at Faith, Family, Adoption

Diane from Forever Sisters

and Matt from Daddy Matt

The winner of this week’s Sunday Snapshot is Cheri from Unexpected Paths. I just can’t get over this soulful image and the volumes it speaks.

Congratulations to Cheri. Her picture will be entered into this month’s Sunday Snapshot post, to be voted on by y’all, the readers. The April winner will receive a $50 gift certificate from One Willow Presets.

Enjoyed visiting all the links this week… y’all are really doing a great job! And I loved so see some of y’all participating for the first time – way to knock the dust off those cameras! If you haven’t joined in yet, but want to improve your photography skills, I hope you’ll give it a shot. And be sure to read the linked posts, many of them have details on the settings as well as photography and/or editing tips.

See y’all on Sunday!



  1. Congrats, Cheri! This took my breath away!

  2. I absolutely LOVED that photo too! Good pick!

      Diane, your image is just beautiful. I really did have a difficult time choosing this week… but it’s been fun having such lovely images to choose from! Beautiful work on that entire series of your girls :)

  4. Wow, thanks so much Stephanie. I feel so honored since this was my first time entering anything and there were so many great photos this week. That shot was taken last spring when I had the time to play around with my camera a little more. Thanks, too, for all the wonderful comments and emails from everyone. I am quite humbled that so many of ya’ll (I can use that twang because I’m from the south, too!) were quite touched by this photograph of my sweet Joy, who loves her “special hand”.

      It’s such a beautiful image, Cheri. And, as a momma to a little one with a special hand, I was especially moved by the beauty of it. So glad you decided to enter this week! Better get that camera back out and start playing around with it again :)

  5. Thanks Stefanie for putting on this weekly contest. I was thrilled to be a fav this week with some great photos! My wife and I both love your blog.

      I LOVE your bubble picture… and enjoyed visiting your blog reading about your beautiful kiddos. And it’s fun to have a daddy playing along, too.

    This was my favorite this week!!! Glad it was your’s too. The other top picks and many others were great too. I am liking the contest aspect, even though I don’t participate myself.

    Thank you.

  7. Cherie’s pic was my fav too! I agree with you – it speaks to you?! I love Sunday Snapshot – I think they’re all fabulous!

  8. This was my favorite too! It gave me chills and made me remember just how powerful a photo can be. I LOVED the birth photo too. It’s funny my two favorites were black and white. Maybe a photo has more room to “speak” when the color isn’t there.
