Best of 2013: Photos

How can I not include my work in my wrap-up of 2013? It feels harsh to call any a favorite without including all of them. These are a sampling of the ones that have stayed with me. I’m going to limit myself to 10 images, each from different sessions and excluding family sessions.

2013 brought a lot of business changes.

I made the hard decision to leave our local hospital in May. Hard because I worked with incredibly supportive nurses and staff, had learned how the light worked in those rooms so well, and because I am passionate about photographing parents with their newborn child.

Ultimately, it was the best decision I made all year. My hat is off to Connie, our lead OB nurse, and the doctors whose schedules are so unpredictable. I LOVE having sessions scheduled in advanced, being able to bring all my props and blankets, and working with parents who have slept a bit more and are easing into their new family. Having fewer clients has actually been a blessing for my family and me, especially since I actually make more sales now---as my clients already value photography and what I do.

I don’t know where 2014 will lead, but one month in, I’m eager for the journey to continue!

If you or someone you know will be having a baby in 2014, let me know if you are interested in a newborn photo shoot. And you can save money while donating to a great cause (hello Moab’s Teen Red Center & BEACON program!) by bidding on a session with me at the Chocolate Lover’s Fling on February 8th!
