Dara & Dylan | Expecting

2017 is coming to a close and I see big changes already since this time in 2016. Every year l to look back and see where the year brought me. So many new faces, techniques I've adopted or perfected, for lack of a better word; I never claim that anything I've done is perfect. Growing is essential and always part of the thrill to keep going. It's something to strive for. The moments I feel close, I've already moved toward something new to move towards. Photography is exciting this way.

Dara and I faced the cold last week for what is one of my last 2017 shoots. Last year we met for her engagement. I'm so thrilled for her and Dylan, who are expecting in as little as a week from today. Obviously 2017 meant great things for them! I feel lucky we had this sunset to use, albeit cold. Dara was a sport to take off her jacket for a few moments at a time. A smart move, this girl rocks pregnancy more than I can ever hope to!

So congratulations, to these two lovely people! I'm looking forward to seeing them and so many others celebrate the pinnacle moments in their lives in 2018!

Happy New Years to you all!
