What an absolutely amazing year. I had the honor of photographing 31 families, couples, babies and weddings. This was my first year as a professional photographer, and it has solidified my love for this craft. After each session, and spending hours editing their photos, I felt as though I had come to know these people so personally. As if I could call each a friend. Whether or not I see them again (I really hope I do!), each of them has found a way into my heart. Meeting these people and their families has been one of the highlights of my year. Here are a couple of my absolute favorites from our time together.
