Top 10 of 2007

2007 has been such an amazing experience for me. I've gotten to know so many wonderful people, and have been able to express my creativity in neat ways. I've travelled to Jekyll Island, Amelia Island, and Atlanta for photo sessions. I've celebrated with 4 newlywed couples. I've acted in goofy ways to get the perfect smile. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for allowing my to share my vision with you.
With the new year brings new challenges, and I hope to broaden my photography horizons in 2008. Before posting anything new, I wanted to take a trip down memory lane of my favorite client images in 2007.

In no particular order:

#1: Melissa randomly posted on my blog one day about a Trash-The-Dress session, and the images turned out amazing. Her pink dress popped awesomely!

#2: Kyndall is a great example of what happens when parents leave their children during sessions... natural smiles. This is a favorite because it's a 100% smile.

#3: Jason and Rachel are the CUTEST couple EVER! Rachel is due in the middle of January, and I can't wait until little Lana has her first photo session with me! Every one of their images is my favorite... they ooze love.

#4: Does this image really need an explanation? :)

#5: Anna makes me smile each time I see her. She's got such a personality... and on her 1st birthday, it was no exception! Here she is diving into her cake!

#6: Aaron and Misty's session was perhaps the first one I ever walked away from confident that I nailed the images. This is a favorite from the session, and an all-time favorite of mine.

#7: While preparing for Christen and Matt's wedding in October, Christen had one image request... this shot. When her parents were married, this pose was taken of them. When her sister married, the pose was re-created again. What a special tradition to pass down!

#8: If ever I wanted to become BFF with a client, Stacy is the one. Too bad she lives in Florida. Stacy and Phil's wedding wasn't just the joining of them, but also of their family... and all six kids were in the wedding party.

#9: A Christmas tree costume? I was a little intimidated when I heard about this thing... but I've smiled hundreds of times over this image.

#10: Pregnancy is such a blessing... but for Erin, it was attached with heart ache. Just two months before the birth of her son, Erin's boyfriend passed away. Her maternity session was so emotional, I still get goose bumps thinking about it.

It was SO difficult narrowing down my choices... I have so many wonderful images to choose from, and my clients are some of the most spectacular people! I'd love to hear your comments... which is your favorite?

Although all these shots are wondreful, I think Erin's is my favorite. 2008 is going to be your best year yet, I just know it! (b/c you'll have a new little girl to photograph!!)
