One of my favorite things to do at the end of the year is to look back on all of the sessions from the past 12 months and narrow down my absolute favorite portraits that were created that year.

January is full of goal setting and focusing on all the things I want to do better in the year to come, so it fuels my creativity and fires me up to pause and recognize how proud I am of my work, and how far it has come- and to celebrate my art and the families I have had the honor of working with.
And this year, the annual Favorite Portrait Contest is back!
All you need to do to vote, is share which portrait shared below should win as the Best of 2015 and why in the comment section at the bottom of this post. The contest will be live for just seven days, and the portrait with the most comments will win!
