San Francisco Bay Space Maternity and New child Photographer to Compete within the 2024 Worldwide Photographic Competitors

Marcela Limon of Lemonshoots is honored by peers and jurors for high-quality photography.

A photograph created by Marcela Limon of Lemonshoots in Alameda has recently been accepted as a finalist in the Professional Photographers of America’s 2024 International Photographic Competition. Limon’s work is one of the 32 images in the Maternity and Newborn category that will move on as a finalist in the upcoming photo competition at Imaging USA in Louisville, KY—January 28-30, 2024. Imaging USA is one of the largest annual conventions and expos for professional photographers.

Marcela Limon is a Fine Art photographer specializing in maternity, newborn and baby photographer.

A total of 497 finalist images across 16 image categories will be judged in live head-to-head rounds by a panel of eminent jurors from across the United States. With each round, images will be randomly placed into brackets and judges will eliminate the number of images by half. In the end, the sixteen category winning photographers will walk away with a trophy and a check for $1,000. The overall winner of the competition will receive the Grand Imaging Award and a check for $10,000. Limon’s image (which can’t be shared until after the competition) will be on display at the International Photographic Exhibition alongside other top photographic works from the competition.

‘This is such an honor’, said Marcela. ‘I truly love creating unique portraits for my clients. The fact that those images can also be recognized as the best of the best fills me with joy. I want to thank my clients for their trust. I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for them.’
