It’s been so fun going back through my portrait sessions this year and choosing my favorites from the year. This was such a fun year; I got to meet so many new families and see some familiar faces too; I photographed a few really fantastic, sweet, and adorable (and very memorable) dogs; I got to photograph lots of awesome Howard County high school seniors (from Glenelg high school, Wilde Lake high school, and Glenelg Country School!); I photographed a sweet newborn boy; and I got to photograph a maternity session! It has been such a fulfilling year. I also have been so lucky to have either my husband, Justin, or my sister, Kelsey, (or my mom!) assist with so many of these sessions; for families with young children or sessions with pets, it is such a huge benefit to have someone else with me to wave toys, clap their hands, wave lunch meat above the camera lens (really! haha), or even just provide an extra hand or two to me or the families during our session – and Justin and Kelsey have been such a huge help with that this year.
One of my goals this year was to blog every single wedding – and I did it! But I am SO far behind on blogging portrait and engagement sessions – so most of these photos have never been on the blog – which is exciting! It was so tough narrowing down these favorites, but I am so thrilled to share some of the highlights of 2016 photographing so many great people and pets :) Enjoy – and thank you so much to all of my outstanding families who made this such a beautiful year!!
