A Year Full of Babies!
Oh what a year it as been! At the beginning of 2015 I set a goal to focus more on portraits in addition to weddings. When I first started DZP I only photographed weddings & engagements. I wanted nothing to do with portraits. But over the years my heart has made quite the change and I love incoporating portrait work into the cadence of my wedding season. The thing I love MOST about shooting portraits is the opportunity it allows me to walk alongside couples long after the wedding day. The majority of my portrait work is filled with past clients, celebrating an annivesrary or expanding their family. It gives me the unique perspective to witness as this couple grows together and enters into new phases of life. To be able to capture those moments, big or small, and encapsulate them forever for a couple or family is an absolute joy.
I wanted to photograph 20 portrait sessions this year, I was so focused on that number. What I didn't realize is that the number 20 would connect me with some of the most amazing famillies and couples. I look back on the year delighted to have reached my goal but even more excited to see the beautiful faces of the wonderful and gracious people I had the opportunity to place in front of my camera this year. So with that I share with you the Best of Portraits 2015!!
