Best of 2018 – People’s Choice Contest! | Holly, Michigan Photographer

I can’t believe it’s already 2019! Seriously, where does the time go? 

I know I probably say that every year, but I feel like each year goes faster and faster – how does that happen! 

 2018 was a year of attracting what I put out into the universe: Dreaming big, loving big, giving and receiving big, celebrating big and risking big to make the most of everything we have! I’m ready to make 2019 even BIGGER! 

I know the blog has been seriously neglected with only a handful of posts throughout the entire year, but that didn’t mean I wasn’t busy! 

I have been so busy and truly have had one amazing year, traveling all around the state and documenting the most amazing families and special events and parties – capturing the real moments and cherishing these memories have been always the best gift you all have given me!  Also the relationships we have been given with each of you has been so rewarding and a very humble, special gift. 

And here is a little way for me to say THANK YOU!

Voting will begin today and end at 11:00 a.m. on January 28th – exactly 7 days. Prizes will be awarded to first, second and third places!

Whoever receives the most votes, will receive a 16×20 canvas of the winning image as well as a free full in-studio or on-location session of their choice! The winning image will also be used on my Web site – – as well as be used for my business cards!

The second place winner will receive an 11×14 mounted print of the winning image and half-off an in-studio or on-location session. Third place will also receive half-off an full in-studio or on-location session as well!

So get out there and tell all of your family and friends to come over and VOTE, VOTE, VOTE! It’s my way of giving each and every one of you a great big hug for all you’ve done. I can’t wait to see who wins and what the next year will bring!

(Now keep in mind, voters can only vote ONCE from each computer, so it’s fair. And I’d love to hear your thoughts! Leave me a message or follow me on Facebook so you can follow me on my journey! There is so much for me to share and a  lot to follow that is super cool and special! I’d love to keep in touch with each and every one of you!)

So I’m calling this a highlight of 2018 … images that I chose that reflect what type of photographer I am as well as images that simply make me smile. I simply can not wait to see what 2019  will bring.   Thank you to my sweet clients of 2018! Your unbelievable support has been absolutely priceless.

Here’s the making 2019 the best year yet! Happy New Year! Stay inspired!
