Twenty Fourteen Year in Review | Birth

Happy New Year friends!!  I hope that you all had a wonderful, relaxing, family-time-filled Holiday and New Years.  Mine was just that.  I took the last two weeks of the year to spend with family and to unwind and unplug. Now that 2015 is in full swing, if you're like me then you probably use January as time to review and renew.  I'm working on so many awesome ideas and projects for 2015, one of them being somewhat of a revamp  of how I run my business, what products I offer, what impact I want to make and most importantly, what my goals are for the year and how am I going to reach them.  In order for me to look forward into 2015 I have to start by doing  a review of 2014, from the business and marketing side to the sessions and images side.  Well, I'm having so much fun going through all of my images from last year I decided I wanted to share some of my favorite images from 2014 with you all!

There are truly actually hundreds of images that are favorites but because that could take both you and I all day long to read through I decided to pick around 10 from each session type.  Uuuhhhmm...  it's been hard.  It's taken me days.  I'm still working it. Naturally, I'm starting this series of 'Year in Review' posts with my favorite thing to photograph: birth and brand new babies.  I love shooting birth and new babies the most because it's so real.  It's completely unedited, unrehearsed, real life, in the moment emotion.  Capturing an image that you can take one look at and almost feel exactly what that person was feeling when the image was taken... that's the real stuff.  The stuff I photograph for.  And what's even better, there's always a story behind the image.  To me when there's a story, every time you look at that image, you're going to remember the story.  And that is exactly why most of these images are favorites of mine: because I think they hold a lot of emotion and because of the story behind the image.  So I'm including either a caption or short description of the image in hopes that you'll see and feel what I do in these.

Thank you to everyone who chose me to photograph their special moments... I hope to grow with you as your families grow and change.  <3

These are in  no particular order as it would be impossible for me to label them that way.  (and there are around 20 since I'm including both birth and brand new baby sessions)
