Dreaming of Photoshop World

Hey everyone. I've entered in a photo contest to win a free entry to Photoshop World. This would be a dream for me. The contest is a Mother's Day contest and I feel like a mother should win. I was in first place this morning but was passed up by 100 votes within a few hours today. I'm currently in 2nd place. I entered a picture of my daughter and I that I took when she was almost 2 months old. As a professional photographer I dreamed of setting up my studio and taking many pictures of her as a newborn. I was unable to do so because I almost died two weeks after giving birth to her due to a condition placenta accreta which the doctors did not catch. I spent her entire third week of life in the hospital fighting for my life and after two surgeries and many blood transfusions a hysterectomy saved my life but made my two little girls special "limited editions". Although I was extremely anemic, and still recovering; six weeks after my surgery I attempted to set up my studio and capture a little bit of what was left of that "newborn look". I gave my husband the camera and had him capture this mother and child portrait.

So if you'd like to help me have a chance to go to Photoshop World to improve my photography skills just click on this link and press like (if you have a Facebook account).  It is that simple.  
Thanks so much!
