It’s time to show off my favorite ten photos from 2012. I was blessed this year to shoot in some of New England’s most beautiful places, and as these photos show I occasionally lucked out with some great light. It’s always a challenge to distill an entire year of work down to ten images, but I think it’s a great process to go through. I spent much of this year working on a video projects as well, so I’ve included a couple of my favorites from those projects too. Enjoy!
