The first theme of the year over at is the best face of 2010. After much thinking about which photo I should choose to represent the past year, I realized I kept coming back to this one.
I took it towards the end of December as we were waiting outside the Magic Kingdom, waiting to go in. I didn't really plan ahead; I saw the way Cassie was leaning on Doug and quickly adjusted my camera settings to take the shot before we went in. But it's the photo I keep coming back to because it's one of the first photos where even I was taken aback by how beautiful it looked. This is one of the first shots I've taken that I've been 100% excited about straight out of camera. This photo demonstrates everything I've worked for in 2010 and much of what I hope to accomplish in 2011.
