2011: Year End!

It's that time of year!  Time to wrap up 2011 and look forward to 2012 and what it has in store!

I've picked 1-2 favorites from each wedding, engagment session, or everyday session from 2011 and compiled them into a "Best of 2011" post!  This past year was amazing! I was super excited to see that EVERY wedding I shot in 2011 was FEATURED on a wedding website (a couple sites each!) CRAZY!  I would love to continue that goal for next year and see each of my 2012 bride & grooms featured as well!

Hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and have a Happy New Year!

In the beginning of the year, I participated in a contest, to create this collage of headshots with everyone having a heart on their face in red lipstick.  Thank you to everyone who participated!  I came in 5th in the contest and had tons of fun shooting everyone.
