Pick just 10 favorites from my over 4,000 (yikes!) photos taken in 2016? Alright, challenge accepted! First I decided to just choose from my personal photos, so even though I LOVE all of my clients' portraits, they were not eligible for the list. Second, I decided to just go with my emotional reaction. So I didn't count how many times each of my kids made it into the list or try to evenly repesent every genre that I enjoy photographing. These 10 were the ones that made me stop and smile for the longest time:)
Looking over them, I can really see my own preferences in photographic styles. I definitely prefer bright and clean color. Even my black & whites aren't truly black & white - they are sepia toned thanks to some very slight split tone coloring of the highlights and shadows. I love lifestyle images that tell a story, especially if there is some action involved. My favorite persepctive for portraits is having my subject look up at my camera so the sky above can fill their eyes with sparkle. And I really have a habit of photographing people from behind!
