Last month, I realized that it was time to start thinking about my year end contest. Through the past year, I have been dropping my favorite images into a folder just for this contest. This morning, I decided that today was the day. I opened the folder and thought, “Oh my goodness! How will I ever choose?!?” There were tons of images in there. I was able to keep going back through the folder and finally narrowed it down to 45. I was stuck. I called my family in. Everyone had to write down their Top 15. I counted up the votes and still had trouble narrowing down to the final 18. I could NOT go any lower.
The images you see below have all touched me. You will even notice one couple is represented twice. I couldn’t discard either picture. I loved them both. This past year has been truly unbelievable. I shot over twice as many sessions as I did in 2009. I owe all thanks to God for this amazing gift he has given me, but I also thank each and every one of you! Every time you have commented or “liked” a picture, you gave me self-confidence. Every time I seen you repost your pictures and proudly declared that Southern Expressions took your pictures, I was honored and speechless. When I took a peek at the blog counter at the bottom of this page and saw that my little blog has had over 63,000 hits since March. I am completely in awe. Word-of-mouth had been my biggest and greatest advertisement. So, again, I send each and every one of you a HUGE thank you! My business would not be what it has become without you. ♥Christy

Because charity is also a big part of my business success. I feel that it is extremely important to give back and give a hand up to those who may need it. Please take a look at these two sites:
