The Best Photos of 2011 :: Part 2 (September-December)!!

Are you ready for Part 2??? It’s actually even bigger than Part 1 (which you don’t want to miss so go check it out!)… even though it’s less of the year!! Mostly because by the end of August I was completely booked through the end of November and it was such a crazy Fall, in the best way!!  With so many new people to meet and old people to see again!  And while I have been loving my easy-peasy calm December, where I can actually go to bed at a reasonable hour and get lunch with people and see movies and have a normal life… I wouldn’t trade those crazy few months of shoots because I have the best clients to photograph and they allowed me to create some amazingly memorable photos from the second half of the year!!  Get comfy because there are A LOT of photos comin’ your way!! :)

My September kicked off with a bang with Brooke and Dave’s wonderful, sweet wedding!

The boy got ready well watching Dumb and Dumber… LOVE IT!

Lola, Lars and their Mommy were back for round 2!

Need this on a canvas!

Sarah and Miranda did a joint senior session in the mountains. And I loved it!!  Sarah:
