some favorites of 2008 {portraits and seniors}

Ok, I am still reflecting on 2008 over here, and it is not ending anytime soon.  Maybe by the time January is over I will be in the 09 mindset. :)  I am going to do a few posts showing some of our favorites from this past year, and I would love for you to vote for your favorite!  In fact, let’s have a little friendly competition….In the comment box, vote the number of your favorite.  Rules:  You can only vote for one photo, and you HAVE TO TELL WHY you are voting for that photo, or it won’t count.  The photo that receives the most votes, that person/family/couple will receive a complementary 8X10 from studio3z of their choice.  Pretty cool huh?  If you are a person who is looking to win, feel free to spam our blog on to every email you know!!! ;)  Get the world you know voting.

****EDIT*****  The deadline to vote on this entry is Monday morning (19th), 7am!

Now, on with the show.  These are a few portraits of beautiful souls that stood out to me.

Ashie - Numero Uno!!! That cute little bundle is screaming to be an 8×10….or maybe she is just cooing….I’ve never heard her scream. Oh yeah….her Mama is gorgeous too!

Erin - Tuff choice, there all beautiful.
I choose # 1 {Dana} because I love the sun flare, and because I have a 11 week old so I know how precious theses photos must be to her.

lucy - my fave in this round is between #2 Ashley and #6 Mary…i mean seriously are you gonna make me choose one or the other? if you’re gonna do that, then shoot bad pictures of ugly people.

priya - #11 Mary. Because she looks cute and I love the green background.

January 16, 2009 - 4:49 pm

mary - AH! I love all these pictures! My vote goes to #8 (Hannah Banana). The lighting and shadows and textures… so flippin’ sweet. #3 (Mitch the Music Man) is also very cool.

I am also a fan of both of mine :) haha.

esther - Megan! She is gorgeous!

January 16, 2009 - 6:12 pm

Holly - new blog! and to priya–how could you vote for someone other than your polly?!?!?! :) just kidding. i vote for corinne–to be loyal to my BFF, but if i could, i’d also vote mary, too, because she is just as stinkin’ cute in real life as she is in these pictures.

January 16, 2009 - 6:16 pm

Patrick - I vote for Holly because she’s kinda…my girlfriend. :)

January 16, 2009 - 6:51 pm

Billy’s #1 Fan - I vote #4. I heart rockstars.

AlyssaDawnPhotograpy - #6..She looks like she could be a model. I love the whole vintage look. and her outfit and SHOES are adorable!!!

January 16, 2009 - 9:40 pm

Candice (& Daniel) - It’s between 2, 3 & 8 for me…but I think it will be 8

My hubby’s choice is 7 :)

January 16, 2009 - 11:37 pm

Konul - I like all of them but my favorite is #7 – Meagan. She looks very natural and I love the background too. Since I know her in person, I know that it is so her, she doesn’t need to pose for the camera. You can get the camera and keep taking pictures without having her know about it and pretty much all of them will turn out great. This picture should be on a magazine cover!!!

Sarah D. - # 11 Mary.

The composition is beautiful, and the contrast is incredible.

January 16, 2009 - 11:58 pm

gina@kiwistreetstudios - tough tough choices for sure! i’m going with #8 hannah, i do love the shadow/textures/composition. it’s all beautiful.

January 17, 2009 - 2:58 pm

Maya Laurent - Too many choices! I vote #8 for Hannah. I love the lighting in this sooooo much!

January 17, 2009 - 9:44 pm

Heather Dean - Kaylie# What a fresh look. Its so innocent. It doesn’t look like a commercial popstar photo cover…just sweet.

January 18, 2009 - 6:22 am

melissa - I vote for #5 – Kaylie because I think she’s the most amazing person on the planet and also because this photo is amazing. It is so soft and honest and it looks as if you just caught her turning from a reflective moment.

Also, just want to say that #3 – Music Man is incredible!

January 18, 2009 - 12:27 pm

Samantha Manning - I’d like to vote for Holly. This picture truly captures her personality and I love the colors. :)

Dennis Eernisse - I goggled The Wading Girl, which lead me to Billy Wallace, which linked me to your website, finally landing me here to the picture of Dana, my firstborn carrying her firstborn. What a beatific pic of my Dana. Today is 9-21-09, two days before Dana’s due date for her second child’s birth.
