Ladies and Gentlemen it was a close one, like seriously close!

A HUGE thank you to everyone for taking the time to look back at my favorite images, and to all of those that voted.

Of course these images wouldn't have been possible without all of my incredible clients.  So thank you, sincerely, thank you.  I know there are so many amazing local photographers and it truly means the world to me that you chose me to be your photographer.

So I am going to post the winner first and then the three other images that were only one or two votes away from winning.

Oh, by the way, because it was so close the other three images will be receiving a $50.00 Target gift card in the mail as well!

Whelp it is that time of year again!  Time for me to pick a few of my favorites from this past year.  Really this is an impossible task!  It is so difficult to only pick one or two pictures from each session.  I love them all or they wouldn't have made it into your galleries!  But alas, I can't post them all.

The Client who's image is picked as the BEST SMP image of 2011, will receive......Drum ROLL.....a $100.00 gift card to Target!!  Wahoo! 

A HUGE thanks to all of my beautiful clients.  I constantly get asked why my clients always look so good, and I always tell them, "I just have beautiful clients!"  I mean duh, just look atcha!!

The Best Year of My Life?? {Bainbridge Island, WA Children's Photographer}

Another year has flown by.  I have to say I think this was one of the best years of my life.  Which is really saying a lot as those closest to me know.  It is incredible how a year can start and end so differently.  I attribute a lot of it to luck, but then again, I believe we create our own luck.  Here are just a few of the highlights.

*We moved to Bainbridge Island {A dream of Ben and I's since we moved to Seattle in 2004}*
*My sister was blessed with a healthy baby girl who is due to change our lives in February*
*My Dad retired and moved to Port Orchard {we never have to say Goodbye again}.*
*Both of my kids are thriving in their new schools*
*My children are healthy and happy*
*SMP had a great year celebrating milestones with my beautiful and incredible clients.*
*I reconnected with a dear old friend who I have missed dearly, A hole in my heart has been filled.*
*Ben and I celebrated 12 years of marriage bliss ;)*
*I attended 4 Keith Urban Concerts, 3 of which we were in the front row!*
*He held my hand in one of the above concerts*
*I met Keith Urban with my Best Friend*
*I made him laugh*
*He told me I looked good in his shirt*
*I met Keith Urban*
*I met Keith Urban*

I think you get it.
From my family to yours Happy Holidays!  Here's to 2011!
