looking back on 2011 with gratitude {some favorites}

We are about to say goodbye to another year. And as we do I am filled with so many emotions over 2011. There have been both ups and downs, tears and laughter and lots of hard work.

 I have learned so much this year and am so very grateful for it. And I am so appreciative to all of you who support, mentor and cheer me on.

 I love what I do!

As we leave 2011 I want to share just a few more of my favorites from this year.

Thank you 2011 and to 2012 I say "I can't wait!!!"

That's a wrap!

It's finally last session of the year!

It's bitter-sweet for me.

Some days it felt like the season was never going to end and others I never wanted it to.

I had so much fun this year, but am happy to enjoy a little down time the next few weeks as I take it easy and enjoy my little family.

Not to worry, there will be posts, just fewer for a few weeks. ;)

I couldn't have ended my year on a better note. A beautiful location with one of my favorite families!!

I can't get enough of this next one. Love it. So much!

They just can't get enough of me...

and I can't get enough of them either!

You might remember this awesome couple from last month.  Well, it was time for their first official family Christmas card and I had the honor of helping them with that fun task.

Robert, Elena and Dd...thank you so much for trusting me with your special moments. I always enjoy our time together (maybe a little too much).

the best things really do come in small packages

As the hustle and bustle of the Holiday season is in full swing let us remember what is really important.

Our health.

Our family.

Our loved ones.


And spending time with those who are our "real gifts" everyday.

Sweet Tatum you are certainly a gift to your family and all that you meet.   

Welcome to the world little glad you are here!!

it runs in the family

There was no denying that these two were related.

Both were sweet as could be and just flat out GORGEOUS!!!

Both also shared those baby-blues that could just melt you...and they did.

Thanks so much for the fun ladies...I had a great time with you.

Staci you are gorgeous!!!

my comfort food

As with any job there are times that you start to feel a little burnt out.

You start to drag a little.

With my job that feeling comes at least once this time of year.

I have to admit that I was feeling it pretty hard when I had my session with this family. It had been lots  of long days and late nights lately and lets face it...I was just plain tired!

This family had no idea, but they were just what I needed. They made me feel loved and special and their sweet smiling faces were just what I needed.

They were my comfort food!! 

They filled me up as so many of my sessions have this year. I am truly blessed!

So to my new friends I say "thank you."

Enjoy your sneak peek...
