One of my favorite things to do at the end of the year is to look back on all of the sessions from the past 12 months and narrow down my absolute favorite portraits that were created that year. This year I wanted to limit my favorites to the top 20 from different portrait sessions. […]

  • Gotta vote for the Tonne family, even though I love the twins shot!ReplyCancel

  • Sandi

    Spring & Lydia you can see the love between the two a beautiful mother daughter bond.ReplyCancel

  • Margaret

    My favorite is #12, the shared sweet kiss between Mom and daughter. This photo is elegant and honest, and carefully captures this moment of love.ReplyCancel

  • Shannon

    Number 12. Cassandra and Sadie. I love love them all, but this one is just such a perfect moment. Feet in the water, the ocean breeze blowing their hair, and a sweet little kiss shared. When my little one stops playing to give me a little kiss it’s the sweetest moment. Ones that I treasure! This image is simple, natural and just perfect!ReplyCancel

  • Erika Emerton

    I love the Ballards family photo!!!!! It shows hope with adoption for families!!ReplyCancel

  • Renee Watters

    It’s hard to choose they are all beautiful! I like 12 & 18 the best but 18 more so. It reminds me of how God has his children in the Palm of His hand.ReplyCancel

  • #15. Dad holding his twins… It couldn’t get more precious. <3ReplyCancel

  • Erika

    I love the Ballard family photo! It tells the story of adoption and hope!ReplyCancel

  • (12.) Cassandra and Sadie. Photographed in Kennebunkport, Maine. Digital.

    It’s my favorite because as a mother I can feel how that mother is feeling. Kissing her beautiful baby and just enjoying how cute and innocent they are and how much they love their mamas! It’s the best!

    (6.) The Liu–Ballard Family. Photographed in Madison, Connecticut. Digital.

    As a parent who is going through the adoption process, the Liu-Ballard Family photo shows so much strength and hope. You can feel the love shared in their closeness in the photo. You can see how happy they are to be living as a beautiful blended family. You can even see how calm and wise their eldest child is as she gazes into the distance. They are a beautiful family that is inspirational for many of us! All children deserve to be loved and held close as these little ones are and bravo to them for providing that loving environment. Tiffany, stunning capture of a captivating family!ReplyCancel
