2011 in Review – Family and Local Business Portraits

I love taking portraits. Some of the faces you will see in the blog post below are new clients, but most are returning clients, friends, their children, or all of the above. One of the greatest joys of my job is having the opportunity to photograph people, year after year, and to witness their lives change and their families grow. To all my portrait clients: thank you for giving me the opportunity to be your photographer. I truly appreciate you and hope to see you in 2012!
