Young Photography Best Shots/2014 in Review
Dang 2014 came and went quickly! Full of travel, activity and production, 2014 turned out to be a banner year for Young Photography. January started out quickly with some portrait work with Andy, a local SCV Entrepreneur and Business Owner.

A fun maternity shoot:
A growing product photography pursuit: The Blood Moon:
The regular "non blood" variety of Moon:

What’s next for 2015? Hopefully we’ll have much of the same as 2014 with even another area that I’m really excited about. This Christmas Santa brought a new photography tool:
