A few from 2k14

It is so hard to pick my favorite images from my 2014 shoots last year because...
1. That's a lot of pictures to look through and...
2. Each image evokes a memory from one of these special days or moments.
So, instead I decided to just pick those that stick out to me. I feel connected to each one of the photos I take because each one is a deliberate composition and I get to remember the unique story within that picture. Yes, sometimes I snap an action shot at just the right time, but I am usually trying to document a personality or story by showing its simplistic beauty, quirky moments, and emotional depth. I think I tried to pick images based on composition, color, movement, and emotion. Here are some from the beginning to the end of my shoots from 2014!
