Finally, the last photo is the photo that I was most proud to take in 2016. You may remember me sharing it back in this post. Our good friend Joe’s son is the fourth generation to be baptized in this church. Joe’s grandma (his son’s great-grandma) passed away less than two months after the baptism. I’m so honored to have been a part of this family moment and to have helped them capture it forever.

    Of course I think I especially love the kitty! Beautiful night shots (so damn hard!) and uses of depth of field in all of these.

      Thanks so much! Night shots are often so tricky.

    I absolutely love the first flower picture – I think it’s my favorite photo of yours I’ve seen, and it has been since the first time I saw it. The colors, the composition, the bokeh, the contrast between the fresh bloom and the withered one – everything about it is beautiful. The second flower photo (mums?) and the candles with Christmas tree bokeh take a close second – that bokeh photo is wonderfully composed!
