[ best of 2014...post #1 ] portrait. commercial. personal.

looking back over my photos from the past year is always such an interesting retrospective time for me. i get to reflect on how i have progressed as a person and as an artist. each session represents a mark made in a doorway to record my creative growth. this year led me on so many new adventures. i had my first food/restaurant/commercial commission, my first image to be selected for a juried museum show, my first photo to be used on a book cover, as well as the first time i designed a book cover. i participated in a my first charity event for PARL. i continued to document families, people, musicians and my personal travel adventures. 2014 has given me a couple more inches on that doorway and i am so looking forward to making more marks in 2015...

the following are just a few of my favorites from this year's portrait/commercial/personal sessions...enjoy!

stay tuned for the best of engagements + weddings...
