2010 Favorites

This year brought change, surprise and happiness. First, John and I became parents. It's cliche to say that becoming a parent changes your life. Duh, of course it does. But, it changes in ways I never expected. Every thought, tear, smile, worry, headache, joy, moment of sleep .. ever.ry.thing. revolves around a tiny baby.  Becoming a mommy didn't change my life, it re-defined it. It re-defined ME.  To quote Ramona from the Real Housewives of New York,  "I'm going through a re-newal"

I also stepped out of my comfort zone and decided to finally take the plunge into a photography career. I will be a full-time-f'real-self-employed-photographer starting next week. I am a little terrified (is it possible to be a little terrified?) and extremely excited to see what 2011 has in store for me.

Here are some of my favorite portraits of 2010. Do you have a favorite?
