Rochester Magazine took home a first place in the Best Cover category for the Dec. 2012 issue, “Positively Inspiring,” photographed by Catharine Bliss and designed by Art Director Jamie Klemmensen. Judges comments: "The powerful portrait gracing this cover vividly captures a mother's joy — joy at holding her healthy baby and no doubt joy at being alive after battling cancer. Simple yet compelling, this cover demands the reader look inside to read Erin Pendergast's story and to hope her future is as bright as that happy sparkle in her eyes. A home run."
I'm over the moon happy, happy that Erin's smiling face is viewed by even more people and happy that I could capture that joy for her. I hope her story continues to inspire. Click Here for my original posting about Erin and her family
