EMBRACING ALL I NEED
With its beautiful layering, full of emotion and movement, Jodi’s work and especially this image transport us all to another world, full of sunkissed, and a feeling of grandness. It seems to me that Jodi’s unique ability to connect us to the closeness of her subject never fails. Her work is phenomenally filled with wanderlust and that touch of human connection and devotion. We cannot wait to see this image stand along the rest of our incredible gallery.

LEARN ABOUT THE FINALIST:
Hi, I am Jodi Lynn Buckles. I am a Mother and Wife first and foremost; I am also a Daughter, Teacher, and Photographer. My love affair with photography bloomed when I began documenting my growing family after the birth of our second son eight years ago. I wanted to capture his life unfolding…the laughter, the joy, the love, the fear, and everything in between. I had dabbled in film photography in college and was instantly mesmerized again. A few years later I realized photography was something I felt a calling towards, something that truly felt like home. A tremendous gift I felt impelled to share with the world.
