looking back at two thousand and eleven


I really cannot stand these “best of” end of year, beginning of the new year blog posts… I mean, how can I be expected pick and choose from all the weddings and all the portrait sessions and pick just a few to somehow sum up all the year meant and all the people and photographs that touched me.  I can’t, honestly, but I love to look at these posts and so I’m breaking my normal routine and I chose some (just some) of the images that I took this year that meant something to me.  We didn’t travel to Guatemala or Mexico this year, instead we stayed on the continental US, Alaska, Chicago, Detroit.  Meeting and connecting with all kinds of people and families, celebrating who they are and the big and the little moments in their lives.  Happy New Year from my family to yours may it be a blessed, peaceful, and fulfilling two thousand and twelve.
