Before I start writing this blog post, I have to say: I really hate “BEST OF” type of blog post, because IT IS SOOO HARD to eliminate photos for these posts! lol.
I’ve been working on this blog post on/off for almost 2 weeks now and every time I sit down to select only 1! photo from each session, each wedding I’ve shot, I start looking at the whole shoot, relieve the day, smile and want to turn back… I really do! It’s a tortune! 🙂
Anyways, you know I am -kind of- joking:) I do like this post because it gives me an opportunity look back at the past year, see how much I’ve learned and grown, how many people I met with, how many lives I’ve been involved in… so let’s start!
In 2017, after learning that we were pregnant in February, things started to shape a little bit differently than I originally had planned. My due date was October 26th, the middle of busy photography season ( because, fall in ohio <3), so I had to cancel 3 weddings:( But…I still managed to shoot 19 weddings while being pregnant along with many engagement and portrait sessions.
I also attended 2 workshops : Love & Light, which was about wedding photography, and a Newborn workshop to challenge myself more about newborn photography.
I also organized a boudoir marathon day in September, to see how I will like Boudoir Photography, and I LOVED it! In fact, I am running a Boudoir Mini Sessions Marathon next week, and contact me if you want it! You can find more info HERE.
Well, that looks busy! So, let’s end the words and let me photos speak! 🙂
BEST OF 2017 WEDDINGS : Some new venues I shot at this year is Nationwide Event& Conference Center, WatersEdge Event &Conference Center, Jorgensen Farms Oak Grove, Creekside Event Center in Gahanna, Via Vecchia, The Kitchen (2 weddings actually!), Jefferson Country club, Hoover ymca Park. I also shot 3! wedding in Dock 580:), and my 1st LGBT Wedding in Columbus Athenaeum.
BEST OF ENGAGEMENTS: Since I already shared wedding photos of my 2017 couples, I decided to share a few photos of 2018 couples, so The majority of these are my 2018 couples <3 I can’t wait to share these sessions before each their wedding day!
BEST OF FAMILIES
I also shot a few new baby announcements, maternity sessions, in-home lifestyle and studio style newborn session:
