BEST OF 2010

This has been a great year. I have been just busy enough to keep my hands busy and still read and read all of the books on my never ending to-read list. It is hard to pick favorite images from the year. Being rather fond of my work most of the time I have a lot of them. I found though as I searched my archives for the stand-outs I always went to the ones that made me smile at a memory that was created behind the camera while taking the picture. So I hope you don't mind that I must post several pictures.

I enjoy taking pictures of course, but by far my greatest joy comes from the relationships I make with my subjects. This is of course especially true of my Brides and Grooms. After a wedding, I am always a little sad to say goodbye, after being such a huge part of one of the most important days of their lives I can't help but feel connected to them forever. Thank you to all my couples this year. I have made some wonderful friends because you chose me to be your photographer.

Being a wedding junkie at heart, I love wedding details. Here are some of my favorites. A special thank you to Whimsy Floral for making so many of these possible.

I love family shoots, of course. You would laugh at some of the stuff I do to get little ones to look at me, but as long as I get some good shots in, it is worth all the humiliation in the world. Of course, most of my favorites are the pictures that I took while doing nothing but observing with my camera.

And last, but not in the least bit the least. My favorite subject of the year passed away a few months after I took his picture.

Last night was the official launch party for the much anticipated sequel to The Dark Divine. The Lost Saint was released yesterday and Bree had a special reading at The King's English bookstore in Salt Lake. Being a huge fan and Bree being one my dearest friends ever I appointed myself again as official photographer for the event. I can't wait to read the next book to see what happens next to Grace Divine!
