Best of 2012 – Silhouettes and Reflections

I confess…I’m a save the best for last kinda girl.  And I’m drawn to silhouettes.  It’s no secret.  Reflections are a close second.  These pictures are artistic fuel to my soul.  Swoon!!!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this little flashback as much as I have.  Now it’s time to move onward and upward.  Here’s to 2013 and being better than yesterday!

Best of 2012 – Lost in the Moment

As I was sorting through images from the year and figuring out the categories, I began to notice there were a bunch of pictures I loved primarily for one reason…I felt like my subjects simply forgot I was there.  They were SO completely lost in each other that I could have walked away and they wouldn’t have noticed.  I can’t get enough of that!  When people love each other that much (and trust me that much) I just feel like I’m witnessing something sacred.  We see movies where actors play pretty convincing roles, but this?  This is for REAL.  And I’m pleased to be able to share those moments with you…I hope you feel the same as I do.

Best of 2012 – Details

Details, details, details.  So tiny, yet such a BIG DEAL.  Leah Hoskins, infant photographer extraordinaire, is my second shooter and as it turns out babies aren’t the only tiny thing she’s phenomenal at photographing!  I’m guessing at least half of the detail shots shown here are hers.  It would take too long to identify which ones so I hope you’ll simply enjoy our simpatico.

Best of 2012 – Locations

I think one of the reasons 2012 has been such an exciting year is because of all the very cool places I’ve had the opportunity to photograph.  Some of them have been very far away and some not so far at all, but I’ve found myself consistently in awe of my surroundings.  It’s challenging and humbling to attempt to bottle amazing scenery in a container the size of a photograph.  I don’t think I did a single one of them justice.  I guess I’ll just have to go back and try again *wink wink*

Best of 2012 – Skies

My very first photographic passion was capturing sunsets.  Incorporating brilliant skies into my images is still the most spine tingling, high-fiving, satisfying feeling EVA!!  I just can’t get enough of it.  There are lots of other images that would qualify for this category but I narrowed it down to images that stand out primarily for that reason and don’t fall into other categories.  You’ll see a lot more cool skies in the category Silhouettes and Reflections.IMG_6969 IMG_1716 IMG_1082 IMG_0819 whitehead_sheraton_sacred_heart_indianapolis_1956

Best of 2012 – Tearjerkers

I thought that categorizing my favorite pictures would be a great way to recap 2012!  For a moment I considered running a contest in each of these categories as well but once I started looking at the pictures I realized I love each of them too much to let one take more credit than the rest.  They’re ALL my favorites!  And there were so many more that I just couldn’t fit in!  It was a REALLY. GREAT. YEAR.  I consider myself ridiculously privileged that people feel comfortable enough in front of my camera to feel deeply.  It’s not easy to let go and live in the moment.  These images are my celebration of those who can.  I adore them.
