So 2010 is over and done. As I like to do sometimes, I looked through a lot of my photos that I took this past year to see what I can improve upon and what I already like about my work. Whenever this happens I get a little thrill. Not all of the photos I deliver to clients are blogged, but this post will revisit several sessions and pull out an unseen gem from each one.

      Without further ado, here are two shots from some of my favorite sessions this year — one that you have seen and one that you haven’t, in chronological order (oldest first, newest last). A link under the photo takes you to the original post. Enjoy!

      My favorite was the courthouse wedding :) I remember when you posted that. The Wonder Woman one is way cool too!

      Elissa, I love your photography! It is so much fun to watch you grow as a photographer and share all of your experiences through this blog. You have a very intimate and humble approach to each session and give lots of attention to the people involved, not just the photos. I’m impressed.

      Great recap of your year!! I love the shots from your session with Jenny Rain, especially the flare one. The digital Holga is pretty darn neat too. =)

      I really love the light and colors of the picture under the east austin one, really gorgeous!
