I struggled with what to call this year end post for June Lion. These are not the most stunning portraits, perfect details, or dramatic action moments of 2012. Perhaps they’re not even a ‘best of’ or ‘favorites’ of the year. Instead, these are what I call my ‘true’ moments– the real, candid, raw stuff I dug out and curated to become this epic blog entry. The photos are from my weddings, family sessions, portraits, and personal life from this year. I’m far behind – I’ve probably only blogged 1/3 of my weddings and sessions for the year, so this is at least a glimpse into what I’ve been up to. Some of the most poignant moments of 2012 included my daughter, who was born 3-1/2 months early. A few photos of our journey are scattered throughout. All of these moments are why I’m a photographer. I hope you enjoy the photographs.
