Best of 2012: Personal

Since I shared my favorite client photos of 2012 I figured I would also share my favorite personal photos!! 2012 was a great year filled with personal growth, learning to love myself and enjoying the great things life has to offer. It has been a great year and I am so excited to see what 2013 has to bring. ย Here are some favorite photos from 2012…

We didn’t have hardly any snow this early in the year but jazzy sure loved the little bit we did have!

  1. Absolutely beautiful! What a great way to reflect the year 2012…you had an amazing year and documented it beautifully! (I may have to do the same…:)) What an honor it was to be part of your year in many ways. ๐Ÿ™‚ I am truly blessed to have you as my niece! I love you and I am so very proud of you!

  2. Lane: Loved all the beautiful pictures you’ve posted here. They are great and what a great way to show your talent. Look forward to this years picture cause I’m sure there will be so many of Taylor’s little bundle of joy. You will be a great aunt and this baby will be well documented. Loved the picture you posted of her recently beautiful. She is such a natural for pregnancy. Love all the pictures I’ve seen.
