***Copying & pasting from my blog***

It is always so much fun to sit back and reflect on the year while looking forward to the new one ahead. It’s been a wonderful year! We moved into a new house in the mountains in January and finally have room for the kids to run and play (without annoying the neighbors). We get snow and amazing monsoon thunder storms up here, and have room for a big garden and a chicken coop – two things I’ve wanted for a long time. The kids have all grown and are a year older; I now have 1 in high school, 2 in middle school, 3 in elementary school, 2 in preschool, and 1 little sweetie still at home with me. Oh, and we are expecting our 10th in early July and couldn’t be more excited! My photography business is going well and I’ve added mentoring and editing classes to my repertoire this year. I’m currently writing my first e-book on working with natural light and can’t wait to share that! I’ve made some wonderful friends this year, witnessed (and photographed) a dear friend’s birth, taken some amazing road trips, and enjoyed my big family. I shot my very first celebrity client this year, and they even came back to me again for fall pictures - I can't say who it was OR share the family images, but I'll just say that some images of their baby are mixed in with these collages. hehe All in all, it’s been a great year. Before you check this year’s favorites, be sure to take a look back at my 2011 Year In Review (external link)…I do hope that I’ve shown some growth in the last 12 months. I taught myself how to use OCF so that was a big step forward for me this year. It is always fun challenging yourself and learning new things!

Next year I hope to do more of the same – shoot what I love, further refine the techniques I’ve been working on, make new friends, watch my children grow, and have a new baby. I cannot wait! I take a lot of pride in what I do and put my heart and soul into every session that I shoot. I can’t wait to see what 2013 brings.

Here is a collection of my favorite images from 2012. These are in a completely random order and are a mix of client and personal images. I’m an over-sharer so get a cup of hot cocoa and set aside a few minutes to see all of them. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you!

I can only post 8 here, but there are many more on my blog if you'd like to take a peek. Link: 2012 Year In Review (external link)

Your very inspiring...let me know when that e-book is finished or if you need a proofreader, let me know! I have watched your growth as a photographer and it has well surpassed mine by a long shot. Tammy and I wish you well with number 10 and the new year to come.

You are very talented and you're work bears it out. Some very fine work you have produced over the past year.

I wish my kids would pose for me but I usually have to wait for them to need money so we can work something out.:lol:

My sister, the professional baker and cake decorator once told me that my camera takes great pics. My reply was that I thought her oven baked great cakes.:lol:

Always great, but a question if i may. Do you do alot of pp on your images, and also do you use a light meter when on location to balance ambient and flash light?

Thank you all! I would call myself a clean processor...my average image probably takes me 5-10mins to edit from sooc to finished product. I don't use a light meter, no. 99% of my work is still natural light only. There are a few OCF shots mixed in though, and honestly, I just 'guess', take a test shot, and adjust as needed. lol Kind of ghetto but it works.

I'm willing to bet there's a lot of wisdom and knowledge behind your "guesses and adjustments". Your photography is spectacular. Ill be waiting on the release of your book. Keep us posted!

your exposure and PP are spot-on and we could all learn a thing or two from your work, very inspiring. A benchmark Photographer.

Love your work Lisa!

A thread by you can never be too "pic heavy"!

Amazing photos. Always have been a fan of your work. I don't know how you do it with the 10 wonderful kids you have!
