A great 2013! {King and Snohomish County, WA child, family, and senior photographer}

One day away from the end of 2013!  And, oh what a year!  I am so excited to see all that is in store for 2014, but first I always like to look back at the previous days…  I’m currently knee deep in editing and creating all of our own personal images from this year to put into my annual book.  This process seems to take FOOOREVER, but it’s so worth it when we get to look back on all of these fun photos I’ve taken!  My kids love it and they look forward to seeing each book that is made.  There are so many options out there to put your photos into books, but the one I use is Blurb.  Check them out!  They often run discounts throughout the year that you can grab to use!  Of course, printing out your year’s photos to put into a book speaks to the philosophy I hold that images SHOULD NOT just sit on your computer!  They are meant to be printed.  Hung.  Framed.  Created into something wonderful.  If you have followed me for awhile, you know that this is something I am passionate about!  So if you haven’t already done so, do it!  Get those photos off your computer!

And, along with going through all of my own personal images from the year, I also had to go back and remember all of the sessions I had the privilege of shooting this past year!  There were so many!  And, so much goodness.  From beautiful Seniors to silly kids to fun loving families, I have much joy from meeting such wonderful people or seeing so many returning clients and getting to capture such precious seasons in their lives.  I count myself blessed to be able to do what I do.  And, this year especially, I was blessed a thousand times over.

So, to my clients.  My friends.  Thank you for choosing me this year to be your photographer.  To trust me with the most precious people in your lives and to get to capture these moments, these seasons…  it is a gift.

And, without further adieu, I put together a little slideshow of some of my FAVORITE photos of the year…  Enjoy!
