Turn it up to 11.

Turn it up to 11.

This has been one hell of a year. Never in my life would I have thought being a photographer would have me traveling all over the country working with some of the most amazing people.  In my 30 trips around the sun, I’ve never had a more productive year than this nor made as many valuable friendships with not only my clients but also fellow shooters. Enormous thanks to the people who’ve trusted me to document some of the biggest moments in their lives and thanks to the friends and family I have supporting me through this journey. To the people I get to work with in 2012, put your party pants on because it’s about to go off!

Disclaimer: The collection of images here is the biggest visual mashup ever. It’s not my “Best of” but rather just a set of images I love out of the many thousands I’ve taken this year. Some of these you’ve seen before, some you haven’t, and some you’ll see more of. Many made in the company of these fine friends: Andria Lindquist, Carly Bish, Jaquilyn Shumate, Jenny Jimenez, Michael Rowley, Sean Flanigan.

Happy holidays yo.

    ………speechless but not enough to not say this. All I can think is I’m glad I don’t have to pick a favorite. It’s actually pretty unbelievable something so beautiful is done by someone I personally know. I said it once, I’ll say it again. You have a gift. I know there’s big things in store for you and your talent. Whoop whoop Jsho!!!!!
