I have so much gratitude for every shoot from 2014. I've said it many times but I have to say again that I truly have the best clients. I have people that ask me to photograph them because they like my style and value what I do which is such a blessing and an honor for me. The photos below are my personal favorites from 2014, each for a different reason. It's has been a joy to stop time for just a moment and create something beautiful in each photograph. I'm so grateful for all my clients who trust me to do that for them! My top ten in no particular order:
This beautiful woman is a fellow photographer and friend of mine who has pushed me creatively more than once. She asked for a styled vintage pin-up shoot that would be a present to her husband. I was able to incorporate everything I've learned about posing women with the style she brought to the shoot and it made for a set of photographs that I'm so proud of.
There was a moment of excitement for me during this shoot when I knew that I had just taken the photo that I had hoped would happen. Adorable family + everyone playing and smiling + beautiful scenery + blurred ocean at sunset = exactly what I wanted! And the little guy sticking his tongue out makes it so much better!
I love love! Everything about this sweet couple's intimate ceremony was beautiful. I'm lucky to have been there and to call them friends. I also love the composition of this photo and those amazing trees.
These are my own sweet babies. I envisioned this photograph while I was pregnant and I couldn't wait to have big brother hold his baby brother. After I posted this photo the first time I got a lot of questions about how it was created. Along with the right camera settings, a lot of patience, and needing two adorable kids, it takes a sheer curtain over a sliding glass door and a white blanket of the floor. It's all natural beautiful light.
I mentioned that I love love but it may be an understatement of how much it actually melts my heart. These two melt my heart. Every engagement shoot is so exciting for me. These shoots are a fun, serious, sweet, silly, and romantic all packed into one session. This couple was all of those things and fantastic to photograph!
Thank you again to everyone who had me photograph them and the people they love this last year. 2014 was so good, I'm excited for what 2015 has in store!
