A look back at an AMAZING year! 2009 | Amanda Basteen Photography

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Years!  I know I sure did.  It went by so fast!  I’ve spent all night tonight reflecting on 2009 and thinking about what I want to achieve for 2010.  I thought it would be appropriate to make a post with some of my fav images of 2009 (a select few from end of 08 because I never did a post of them).  Basically my business has completely taken off for me in 2009.  I didn’t really truly start it until the end of 2008 and it has just exploded!  I love every minute of it!  I have some great things in mind for 2010 so stay tuned!  Here are some of my fav. images.  It was very very hard to choose and I still chose WAY too many!  So, this post is going to be super long but hopefully worth it! 🙂

I also want to remind everyone of my free session Christmas giveaway!  You have until the end of Jan. to enter.  Please see previous post for details!

What kind of mommy would I be if I didn’t start this post off with my own beautiful babies.   My inspiration and my initial reason for picking up my own pro camera. <3

  • Beautiful work! My favorites are the ones of your kids at the very beginning, and the little girl in white sitting on the bridge, and the man laughing in b+w, and the mom holding her little baby and laughing outside. But they’re all great!!!

  • Stunning eye detail! I really love the cowboy hat shot!

  • Lesley

    Wow, Amanda, I hope you remember us when you are famous! Enjoyed seeing the girls in there. I love that shot too! Happy New Year!

  • Amanda great set for a great year. I love the work you do on the eyes. The pair of portraits of the little girl and the elderly gentleman are really beautiful. I love the sharpness and color of your shots.

  • Nice well-rounded set of pictures. I bet your clients are happy.

    Also, nice to see another photog from Iowa!

  • You have had a wonderful year Amanda! All these are wonderful, and I think you’ve been lucky too…aside from the fact that you’re very talented, I think you’ve also been able to work with some pretty darn good looking people!

  • Amanda I don’t know what to say. These are stunning. You had an amazing year!

    I am super jealous of your B&W. So much texture. And I love how you aren’t afraid to fill the frame in so many of these images.

  • Beautiful images Amanda! May your 2010 be all this and more! 🙂

  • When you put them all together it just reinforces how strong a photographer you are! Good luck in 2010!

  • Looks like you had a great year!! I am sure 2010 will be just as awesome!! Happy New Year!

  • OK, that was a really enjoyable tour of your last year… I mean it. You really are so talented, Amanda! I can’t wait to see what you pull out of a hat for 2010!

  • Your children images are lovely, great work!

  • Wow! you just blew my mind! I absolutely love your kid photography! So playful and vibrant. Keep up the great work… Consider yourself followed. 😉
