2014…favorites

So, yeah, I know this is late. About 13 days too late, so much for starting the new year in a timely manner.

So 2014. You rocked pretty hard…so thankful and humbled by some of the accolades and recognition that came professionally…gallery show, speaking, named bored panda‘s Best Family Photographer in Georgia, wrote and ran my first (and much smoother second) workshop through clickin moms, got a (kick a$$) agent, my photo projects were featured on some amazing sites (Huffington Post, NPR, Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls at the Party, Vanity Fair Italy, Elle China, Washington Post, and Buzzfeed) to name a few. I wrote and shot the campaign for Girls on the Run and Athleta and it set records on their social media. Hands down my most fufulling shoot ever. And the family and I head off to England in March to teach my firstinternational workshop *cue Lindsey Buckingham’s “Holiday Road”.

And personally, we got the cutest, sweetest most adored nephew and cousin, Sam, added to our family, so really can’t beat that. Here are some of my favorite images from 2014.

The Riepe Family {Atlanta Area Family Photographer}

I’ve know Doug (Dad) forever….he’s the little (ha) brother of my best friend’s husband. We all went to college together, Doug just a few years behind us at the same school (Wake Forest, go Deacs!)

Doug played baseball at Wake. Married a volleyball player from Wake and now have a beautiful family and I am lucky enough to get to see them pretty often. Love this family and so enjoyed shooting them.
