I can hardly believe I am sitting down to write my “Best of” blog post already! It has been the longest year of our lives and yet somehow it feels surreal that we are already so close to the end!!
Preparing this blog post is always incredibly difficult and 2020 was no exception — I photographed over one hundred families in 2020 and created thousands and thousands of images! To choose my top 20 is like trying to choose my favorite child!! But sorting through the images, I could feel certain emotions emerging from the photographs that resonated with me the most: LOVE for your family, JOY for everything you have right now and HOPE for the future.
The images I chose for my Top 20 of 2020 are those that represent the overwhelming positive emotions that my clients felt despite the pandemic and despite the challenges we all faced during this very difficult year. Life was still happening. Women were expecting babies for the first time, newborns were being welcomed into the world, children were celebrating birthdays and loving their new pandemic puppies, and parents were taking more time to act silly with their kids (how many people can we fit in the treehouse anyway?!). Moms and Dads were hugging their babies tight, giving extra kisses and tickles and playing games in the backyard.
I am beyond thankful that I was there for all of it.
THANK YOU for sharing your LOVE and JOY with me. I do not take it for granted that I was there to witness some the very best moments of your year.

And I had to throw in a bonus image…because in an election year, I just couldn’t leave it out 🙂
