I cannot believe 2019 is coming to an end! These years are absolutely flying by. I do have to say that 2019 is one of the best years for me and my business. I had so much support, met new photographers and clients, had amazing experiences and am just so thankful for all of it. I pushed myself and my business harder than ever before, and I couldn't be happier with the results. I cannot wait for what 2020 has in store, but for now, I wanted to share my favorite photos from this past year <3 Happy New Year, everyone!
Started 2019 out photographing this adorable family! Mario and Kristy also just got engaged this year. So excited for them!!
Valentine's Day 2019... Ryan asked me to bring Frankie over and I asked if we could take new photos together <3
So thankful for friends who are willing to model for me <3 You'll be seeing more of Cori!
I had the most amazing experience back in March. I flew down to California and participated in my first ever Styled Shoot. It was such an awesome experience meeting other photographers, learning about styled shoots and all the work that gets put into them. I loved the freedom to express my creativity. Can't wait for the next one!
While in California, I met up with my friend Cece and her family at Joshua Tree National Park and we exchanged photos for each other. Such an amazing place. I wish we could have explored around more, but it was SO cold and the winds were around 20 mph!
Favorite picture from Joshua Tree <3 Cece Castillo Photography
My bestie came up from Oregon to surprise her dad at his retirement party. We got together and I took some portraits for her! Doesn't she have the longest eyelashes you've ever seen!? I'm so jealous.
First-ever cap and gown session! I had such a fun time with Lacey in downtown Sumner capturing these for her. And we missed the rain only by a few minutes!
Earlier this year, I met up with Kayla and her family. Look at little Elijah! What a cutie! Keep reading to see how big he has gotten!
Scott & Lilly <3 They'll always hold a special place in my heart. We had quite the experience traveling to Gold Creek Pond for their anniversary session!
Finally traveled up to the tulip festival. I hadn't been there since I was a kid, and I don't even remember it. Once again, Cori was my model!
My cousin Sydney graduated high school this year! I had such a great time taking some cap and gown photos for her!
Illianna's senior / cap and gown session was one for the books! Her grandma passed away late last year, and she wanted to bring her jacket to take photos in. So sweet.
So happy to have met up with fellow photographer Ashly! We met at my aunts' farm and swapped photos for each other and had the best time!
LOVE that this shot turned out! Taken by Ashly Marie Photography.
I hadn't seen Kalii since her firstborn, Dustin (left) was just a baby. It was so great to meet up with her growing family.
Emma's was another senior/cap and gown session that I had the best time at!
How can photographing doggos not be fun?! This session definitely was!
My dad turned 60 this year and I planned a surprise party for him while simultaneously finishing up a remodel on our downstairs bathroom. Both were a success! I also made him that shirt.
Mary and Thomas' engagement session this summer was so great! Their adorable puppy Zoey was so well behaved. They are getting married in July of next year, and I am so excited for it!
I cannot get over this ring!! Had a great time second shooting with Ashly Marie Photography.
Met up with Cece to swap some headshots! Always so fun!
I loved so many of the photos Cece took of me during our swap, but this has to be my favorite.
Some of my favorite little kiddos right here. My aunt and uncle had all of their grandkids visit at the same time this year, so I was able to capture this sweet memory for them. How cute are their nautical outfits?!
Cori making an appearance once again!! Thank you sweet friend.
I had so many favorite pictures from Madi and Justin's wedding, but this one was the most unique!
Loving this Christmas vibe in the fall! Had a great time second shooting for Let's See Photography.
I won a free photosession from Let's See Photography, so I thought it would be fun for my mom and me to get some pictures taken with my grandma <3 Grams had an absolute blast during the session. She was so funny and laughed all the time, and Lexi was absolutely great <3
Another favorite couple of mine, Brittany & Troy <3
One of my favorite sessions to date! This sweet couple made a dream of mine come true and I am forever grateful to them <3
So many lovely fall colors during the Malone's family pictures.
Met up with some friends of ours and captures them in their Halloween costumes! How cute are they?!
Laura (pictured with her family below) and discussed swapping photos for each other! For my family pictures, we met her at Rattlesnake Lake and she captured some awesome photos of us! I mean, we look pretty BA right?!
I had a blast at Taylor's portrait session! She is a local real estate agent.
Look at little Elijah who has gotten so big! So happy this family won the giveaway to my Christmas Mini Sessions!
So happy I was able to capture this family photo for my aunt <3
How adorable are these two?! They just got engaged this year! So happy they were able to make it to the mini session.
Captured some fun family photos for Cece again at the Christmas Minis!
Met up with Tracey, Kenny, and their sweet pup Barley for their anniversary photos. Such a lovely family!
I had such a great time meeting up with fellow photographer Laura and her husband Oscar and their daughter Lilly for their family pictures! Such a cute family!
So glad I ended the year meeting up with and getting to know Johanna! We exchanged headshots and I had a blast!
