Best of 2017 – Soul Photography

Since starting my photography business in 2011, this was my best year for many reasons. Each year, I get more comfortable behind the camera and I pushed myself out of my comfort zone in 2017. There are always ups and downs and I’m so thankful for this past year and for everyone that trusted me to capture their moments!!! XO

I’ve written blog posts about some of these shoots and added the links if you are interested in seeing more. I haven’t had a chance to post about all of them so stay tuned! The plan is to make my blog more of a priority in 2018. #famouslastwords 🙂

Senior Portraits:

I had the opportunity to shoot two sets of twins this year! So many of the kids played instruments which is always fun and this year, many of the kids brought friends with them. These are always my favorite shoots!

This one. She is my favorite – my heart fills up every time I look at this photo. She carries her super hero with her and I think I’m going to follow her lead and start doing the same thing. #TrendSetter She is always full of joy and this photo captures that….


Seriously, how cute are these four?


It’s been a joy watching these two grow up. That is one of the best parts of my job!
