2017 End of Year Highlights

What a year it has been! Not only has this year been chaotic in my personal life, but it's been a whirlwind in my photography world! Since we are reaching the end of the year, and looking into 2018, I thought I could share some of my favorite pictures from the past year. This is a collection of images that have either a personal meaning to me, or are from a session that I absolutely loved. I wish I could include everyone, but that just isn't possible! So here are my highlights!

This is from a session with a sweet family that I used to work with. I love the special relationship and laughter these three share, and I'm so grateful I was able to capture it!

This is a headshot of a sweet friend and past co-worker, Allison. This is special to me because she is someone who has encouraged and inspired me professionally and spiritually.

Aren't these sisters precious? The older sister used to be in my small group, and she has such a fierce love for her little sister. Such a beautiful frienship they share.

Okay, this sweet friend here is Kaitie. Isn't she stunning? She is forever my go-to model when I need a bit of inspiration or have to try out something new.

Not only are these friends of mine so obviously in love, but that little stream of light flowing in just gets my heart all warm and fuzzy.

OH, baby announcements. I wish I could do these every.single.day. There is something so peaceful, exciting and unique about these sessions. I am grateful to be able to be part of these significant life moments!

I love this picture. There is something about it that gives me the feels. Not only is this a dear friend, but she has modeled for me for several years now. I love the pictures that may not be perfect, but they elicit a certain emotion. That's what this is for me.

One final friend. Tiffany has a such a sweet, gentle and genuine spirit. This picture so well captures her heart, which is pure gold.
