Why I'd Like You To Vote For Dolly Dowsie For Best Photography Blog In The Blog Awards Ireland 2015 ♥

My little blog, Dolly Dowsie, has made it onto the shortlist for Best Photography Blog in this years Blog Awards Ireland and to say that I'm shocked would be an understatement. I was delighted to make it onto the long list, I felt so happy and really rather proud that someone had liked my blog enough to nominate me so when I realised I had been shortlisted and that someone actually judged my blog and deemed it quality enough to be put forward for Best Photography blog I was beyond thrilled and my feeling of pride grew some more.

I thought, that instead of just pleading for votes I would try to show you and explain why I'd like your vote, so please see the above snaps of mine and read my words below...

I am up against some professional bloggers in this category, people who are confident enough to put the word 'photography' at the end of their blogs and what they do. I hope one day that I too can gain this confidence and display my pictures as proudly as them. Truth be told I only recently discovered my passion for photography, just last year in fact and only upgraded to a DSLR in December, before that it was just the beloved Canon bridge and I snapping the world around us.

As I said I am far from a professional, but something I am is passionate and I am passionate about every photo I capture. I see the beauty in everything around me and want to capture it perfectly in all its essence. My favourite subjects to capture are nature, people and the bond between them both. I like to shoot outdoors with gorgeous natural backdrops - the more colourful the better and as you can imagine, my favourite muse is my son.

Photography has a special place in my heart and always will now. To be able to capture a moment in time, a moment from someone's life, to keep hold of forever is such a magical thing for me and if I can one day become a professional photographer than my dream will have come true. I like to tell a story with my pictures and capture the magic of people and places, the more fairy tale like the better!

Above are just some of the pictures I have captured this summer and these are some of my favourites, hopefully you'll like them too. Please, if you would like to vote for the awards, I would be honoured if you'd vote for my photo passionate self for Best Photography Blog, which you can do here

Thank you so much to anyone who votes from me, you have no idea how much it means to me when people admire my photographic efforts.
