Best of 2017 Photography

While a lot of 2017 was largely occupied by buying a house and making it a home, I was still SUPER busy as a photographer. With 22 regular shoots, 3 birthday parties, and a wedding this year, my plate was pretty full considering I have a full time job doing something completely different. Every year, as my workload exceeds the year before, I am more and more grateful and humbled that even strangers come to me to for photoshoots now. Who would have ever thought? Certainly not me. I never thought I’d have the confidence to call myself an actual photographer, but I do now and it’s only because friends and family and even strangers continue to have faith in me and my work. Busy season might wipe me out, but I can’t explain the joy it brings me to look back at a years worth of shoots – at all the memories I’ve captured for people – at the Christmas cards clients sent me with my pictures on them; it’s a blessing I never really imagined for my life.

 

Thank you to all of my clients, new and old, for trusting me with your memories. I hope to shoot you all again in 2018!

Will it be a Boy or a Girl?

Earlier this week I did two pregnancy photoshoots with my sister, one if it was a boy and one if it was a girl, so that when she learned the sex of the baby today she could announce it to the world with pictures.

You guys know I don't exactly consider myself some fantastic photographer and especially not an editor, but this photoshoot is easily one of my favorites to date and I'm actually pretty proud of my editing efforts so I thought I'd share them both before telling you what she's having!

If it's a Girl….

If it's a Girl If it's a Girl If it's a Girl If it's a Girl

If it's a Boy…

If it's a Boy If it's a Boy If it's a Boy If it's a Boy

And  so I am thrilled to announce that it's a boy! Gideon will have a little brother and I'll have another nephew. I am the happiest aunt right now.
