{Las Vegas Child Photographer} My 2014 Top 25

Wow, I blinked and another year has passed.  What an amazing year it has been!  My oldest is now a senior in high school and will be off on his own in just a few short months.  The kids are all growing and changing so fast – I wish I could slow time down.  Gabriel is no longer a baby, but a busy and happy little toddler.  Everyone has grown so much this year!  We are currently in the process of purchasing the home we’ve lived in and loved up here in the mountains for the past 3 years.  We cannot wait to be homeowners again!  I made the very difficult decision about halfway through 2014 to take an indefinite break from client work in an effort to focus more on my own family.  I have no regrets – it’s been a wonderful year!  I am so excited to see what 2015 brings. :)

Normally, I put together collages sharing many favorites from the year, but this time, I decided to do things a little differently and choose my personal top 25 images of 2014 to share with you.  These are favorites for varying reasons – many are of my own children and some are not.  I love each and every one of them.  It is always so fun to go back through a year’s worth of work and see the growth and progress from previous years.  Speaking of which, you can check out my 2013 year in review HERE.  These are in no particular order – well, that’s not entirely true.  Image #1 is most definitely my top favorite for the year, but the rest are in random order.  Happy New Year everyone, and may you all have a healthy, happy, and prosperous 2015!  Bring it on!

{Las Vegas Child Photographer} Mary & Ashton

I’ve so enjoyed photographing the lovely Mary over the past few years.  I did her senior pictures a couple of years back, her maternity photos, and now photos of her with her sweet baby boy, Ashton.  I always enjoy working with her – it has been so much fun watching her grow into her role as a beautiful young mother.  I wanted to capture her loving relationship with her little boy in the last bits of autumn color.

{Las Vegas Fine Art Child Photographer} Seasons Are Changing

One of my very favorite times of the year is fall – I love the cooler temps, the rich, autumnal tones, the delicious flavors of the holiday season.  I’ve been busy photographing my sweet babies and wanted to share some recent favorites.  I have been neglecting my blog as of late, so hopefully this will fill people in a bit on what I’ve been up to with my photography. :)

This first image was a bit of a happy accident.  I threw this together last minute after the kids returned home from school.  I had this glorious red gown that I wanted to photograph Calista in, but hadn’t found the time or motivation to do so yet.  We arrived at my determined location late, and the pretty back light that usually peeks in through the trees was all but gone.  I snapped a few shots, but was pretty depressed thinking I got absolutely nothing worthwhile.  I am normally excited to pull the images from my card as soon as I return home from a shoot, but these images sat on the card for days.  I only uploaded them when I had another shoot on the card that I needed to grab.  BOY, was I surprised when this image leaped off the screen at me!  It is now officially one of my favorite images ever of my gorgeous daughter!

You may remember the ‘leaf baby’ photos I took of Gabriel last fall when he was just a baby.  I decided to expand on that theme this year.  Have I mentioned yet how much I LOVE autumn?

Now please excuse me while I switch seasons here for a minute.  I realized I had not yet shared these images from late summer, and I LOVE them – therefore, they must be posted.  We had an epic monsoon season this year and got so much needed rain!  That rain resulted in some of the most gorgeous, lush fields of flowers I have ever seen.  Yes, in the desert!

The beautiful connection between my 2 youngest babies makes my heart sing.  They truly are the best of friends. <3
