Best of 2013

Rubem Braga exhibit in Vitoria, Brazil

So over the last few weeks, as my 2014 season starts getting busier, I have been thinking about last year and all of the wonderful people I have had a chance to meet and/or continue to build friendships with while continuing on this adventure of mine. Regretting not having done a “best of 2013” post at the beginning of the year, I decided to just go ahead and do one now…only 4 months late. But better late than never, I suppose. :)  It is really nice to be able to look back on the last year and see all of the wonderful things I have been lucky to be part of.  Some of my favorites below.

Thank you to the amazing people that let me photograph them and their special days and life moments in 2013.  And thank you to some awesome photographers who l was fortunate enough to get to work with and learn from:  Julie, Victoria, Rebecca, Lauren, and Annette.

Here is to a wonderful 2013 and to new and exciting adventures in 2014!

Weddings, Engagements and In-Love sessions (included are weddings I photographed, weddings where I second-shot, as well as styled sessions):

A sneak-peek from my session with my beautiful friend and her precious little newborn.

These are the sweet family photos of Abby and her mom and dad, Jason and Sarah.  Abby is the niece of a good friend of mine and after hearing my friend talk about Abby’s utter adorableness, I couldn’t wait to meet her.  And she definitely didn’t disappoint! :)  A sweet, adorable and independent little bundle of energy with such kind and loving parents.  Jason, Sarah and Abby…thanks for letting me spend the evening with you guys!
