2018 has been a wild and busy year! I hope it’s been wonderful for you! As a full time professional photographer I take a lot of pride in my ability to capture a genuine moment throughout a lot of diverse jobs, situations and scenes. So… with that in mind here are my personal top and most impactful photos (to me) that came off my camera in 2018. Hope you enjoy!!
I had a blast documenting a few weddings this year. Documenting more weddings with my camera is certainly something I want to do more of in the future!
2018 Real Estate and Architecture
My real estate and architectural photography grew immensely in 2018! I upgraded to a 17 mm tilt shift lens and it has helped make a huge difference in the quality of my work.
If you know me then you know how much my family means to me. I am so in love with them! Here are a few of my favorite family photos for the year.
San Jacinto Corvette Club Shoot, Biltmore Estate, May 2018
I was hired by the San Jacinto Corvette Club out of Houston, TX to photograph their amazing Corvettes on the Biltmore Estate in May. It also happened to be the opening day of the Dale Chihuly glass exhibit on the estate. and was pouring down rain for 90% of the shoot. This was one of my most exciting and fun shoots of the year!!
2018 Family Sessions
I documented so many fun and beautiful families this year!!
Asheville Yoga Festival July 2018
I was a staff photographer for the Asheville Yoga Festival in July. What a great experience!!
Documentary Photography September 2018
In September I was hired by a family whose Matriarch is terminally ill with cancer. The goal was to document happiness within this family member. I will NEVER forget this emotional and moving experience. I feel blessed and full of gratitude for this opportunity.
Professional Shirt Co.
In addition to being a full time photographer I am also the co-owner of Professional Shirt Co. Please visit our website www.professionalshirtco.com to learn about our story and mission. 2018 was our first year of business and it was a tremendous success! In particular I am extraordinarily proud to have seen our Professional Yoga Shirt come to fruition. We have a cycling shirt in production and it will be out soon!

In all honesty I was not highly motivated to capture landscape scenes this year. However, when the opportunity did present itself I did my best to capture the beauty of our planet. Hope you enjoy these images.
