Our Best Decision in 2015

  • Our Team Has Grown!

Some of you are reading that subheadline and are thinking that this is a pregnancy announcement! Come on people!!! You’re worse than my mom! :) Just kidding. Our moms really want to be grandparents together (especially since they are best friends… which is cute :)… but I’m only 27 until TOMORROW and so I’m still young!!! So no, our team hasn’t grown in that way. However, we did make one of the BEST decisions of our career this year. We got help!!!!

Best of Portraits 2015

  • Engagements, Anniversaries & Specialty Portraits

This week is one of my FAVORITE blogging weeks! It’s the week that I highlight my BEST work of 2015 and I normally categorize these images into two categories : Weddings & Engagements. The issue this year is that I have had multiple anniversary sessions this year that I’m especially fond of and so I decided to make this post a “Best of Portraits” post!! I actually made this post creation process VERY easy on myself this year! Every time that I finished a shoot, I would take my FAVORITE images and save them in a “2015 Portfolio” folder in an online gallery!

Behind the Scenes 2015

  • Our Real Life

This is my favorite post of the year. Hands down! I laughed so hard I almost cried. These pictures are so unflattering in so many ways but because I love you guys, I’m going to forget how embarrassing they are and show them anyway! This year we photographed 31 weddings and we have one on New Years Eve and so I’m going to count that as a 2016 wedding!! This year has been amazing and as I look back through these BTS images, I laughed but I was also overcome with thankfulness.
