2012 | a year in review

I honestly have the best clients in the world. 2012 was an amazing year-I can’t believe I got to do so much and meet so many new clients. When I started this journey I never expected to be here, in a place where I get to do something amazing for a living, and I totally owe it to all of you.

This is going to be a gargantuan post, epic I tell ya…grab some coffee and get cozy…I have chosen an image from every single baby, family, couple, wedding, and anything else (besides family stuff or we’d be here for years) I had the honor of photographing this year. I wasn’t able to blog each one but I sure did try. If it was blogged I put a link to the blog post so you could see all my favorite images from that session.

Don’t forget to Pin your favorites on Pinterest πŸ˜‰

My first session of the year was so touching for me…Luke and Kristin (their wedding) were a bride and groom of mine that drove their Ella all the way down from Atlanta for me to do her newborn session…What a doll! (HERE is more of her newborn session)

Next I got to photograph my first baby shower (as well as their maternity session)…unfortunately they moved before I had the chance to photograph baby Β Bryson πŸ™

Kim and her family were in from Louisiana and she is also a photographer!

The rest are HERE!
