I was preparing my annual Faces slideshow for 2011 and decided, as a lark, to count just how many people I had done portraits of this year. I thought I'd hit a few hundred. Much to my amazement, I hit 755. That doesn't include candids by the way. That's actual, take some time, let me figure out the best lighting to make you look fabulous, now pose this way for me, kind of portraits.
That means I met 755 people this year that I otherwise wouldn't have had the pleasure to meet. Life is good.
Every portrait is an opportunity. An opportunity to learn and grow as an artist and to meet and connect with another person. To all 755 people who gave of their time and allowed me to share their inherent beauty with the world, a heartfelt thank you.
So without further ado, here's my Faces of 2011 slideshow. Of course it's not all 755 people. That would be a very long slideshow. But this is a nice edit.
Here's to a happy, healthy New Year, and to even more faces in 2012.
