I always love year-end retrospectives. The best and worst of TV, movies, books, fashion. So this year I’m doing that with my images… some of my favorite moments, laughs, families, outtakes, hugs and tears. I’m starting with portraits, and I’ll be back with some favorites from weddings. As I look back, there are so many great times that I don’t know if I can share EVERYTHING in one post, but I’m gonna try! Here are some of my favorite photos of the year, all in the form of a New Year’s Eve toast.
