{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 | Kingman Child Photographer} Autumn 2014 With My Babies

Autumn is my very favorite season – the rich, warm, vibrant tones go with my photography style like peas and carrots.  I know I’ve been slacking in the blogging department, and some of these images are a few months old now, but here are some of my favorite images of my children from this fall.  I’m now officially ready for Christmas and winter!  Bring on the snow!  :)

{Las Vegas Portrait Photographer} Wild, Wild West

This is a story of strength, betrayal, loss, and revenge – played out in a wild west setting.  My daughter is amazing!  She rocked this shoot, and I had SO much fun doing these with her!  I really want to explore more story-telling, conceptual ideas that I have through my photography.  Even the weather fell into place.  The stormy, ominous clouds that closed in on town this day couldn’t have been more perfect if I’d planned it myself.  The creepy old haunted building (yes – haunted – verified by the owner of this building who left us there alone after finishing up work) and the wide open desert location wrapped in black storm clouds were the perfect backdrop for this old west tale.  And with that, I’ll let the photos do the talking.  Enjoy, and thank you so much for visiting my blog!

The sun always shines again after the rain.  We were treated to this beautiful monsoon sunset after our shoot.  I couldn’t put up this blog entry without including it. :)
