This is the most delayed I’ve ever been on writing a “best of” post but it deserves its moment because 2019 was an AWESOME year for me with photography! I did a grand total of 50 total sessions with a mixture of newborn, family minis, milestone sessions, senior sessions and more! I did sessions ranging from Virginia Beach and Richmond to DC, Frederick and Baltimore! I took a year long business course with Katelyn James and ended the year with a huge in person workshop where I fan girled HARD when I met her! I upgraded my camera from my original crop frame Nikon D7000 that I got in 2011 to a full frame Nikon D850 which I LOVE! Not only for its impressive speed and lock in focus but the colors are SO VIBRANT! Which also means my file sizes are huge and caused my trusty old 2011 Macbook Pro to throw up its hands in exhaustion. Enter SUGA’ my 27″ Mac which is a BEAST and has made my editing workflow SO much faster!
The best part of any of this though was working with AMAZING people! Going through this photos honestly made me super teary because I just felt an overwhelming sense of “I LOVE these people!”. So many of these families I’ve worked with for YEARS and it makes me feel super sentimental to watch them add new members and watch their littles grow up in front of my camera! It is by far my favorite part of photographing newborns, children and families is periodically getting to see them and watching them grow up! It’s also a weird feeling to love these image so much that I wish I could frame them in my house but then I realize – that’s weird. Haha so hooray for this post which allows me to walk down memory lane and pull out my favorites.
I decided to separate out the fall minis into their own best of post since there were so many of them. This way I also get another chance to scroll through memory lane and post even more favorites 🙂
Enjoy some of my favorites from 2019 regular sessions and spring minis! I love these so much it was SO hard to narrow it down. To all my 2019 families – thank you for such an amazing year, I love yall so much!!
