Now that 2012 is officially over and we’re all mostly recovered from ringing in the new year, let’s take a quick peek back at the year behind us before pushing forward into 2013.
You may remember that last year (I know that was sooo long ago) I recapped my favorite photos from each month – sometimes 5, sometimes 10 – it varied depending on the season and photos taken. Well now I’m going to narrow that down even further and share with you my one favorite picture from each month, i.e. my Top 12 Photos from 2012.
Enjoying our winter wonderland… more or less. I love everything about this picture.
Another pretty picture of BB, of which you’ll notice I have many.
March was a tough choice, I loved a LOT of the pictures I took and I feel a bit guilty showing three pictures of BB in a row, but this was one of my absolute favorite pictures from the whole year, so… Here is my favorite picture of MM in March.
A picture of the kids in their Easter Best. Beautiful weather, beautiful happy healthy children. It doesn’t get any better than this.
I took some gorgeous nature photos this month and a picture of the sky that still blows my mind but this picture of MM at a local baseball game absolutely takes the prize. It’s another one of my favorites of the year.
We have a lot of fantastic memories from July what with the epic month-long vacation, multiple birthday parties for BB and a family wedding. This picture for me just captures the whole month, but I was very tempted to use this one from just days after returning home from the trip.
This picture from a trip to the zoo is a favorite of mine. I have a lot of similar pictures as this is pretty much their favorite thing to do at the river otter exhibit, so I’ve had a lot of practice perfecting the shot! This one came out perfect.
Oh man, this month was REALLY hard. When I bother to pull out my nice camera, amazing pictures tend to follow. Add to that an amazing Halloween, terrific family vacation and lots of great lighting and nature walks… Wow.
I took some awesome pictures of the kids on Thanksgiving so there were a lot of cute pictures this month and a lot of cute cell phone snapshots, too. My new phone yields pretty great photos, but I’m noticing my favorite pictures from each month were taken on my Nikon – I’ll need to remember that this year and make sure to pull it out each month and take some great photos.
We had so much fun opening gifts in our Advent Calendar from memere – this was the first day’s gift, jingle bells!
