best of instagram orange county photographer

It is so hard to believe that 2017 is about to come to a close and a New Year is just days away!  Thank you so much to my clients, family and friends that are making it possible for me to be living the dream doing something I love so much!  I hope you enjoy this Best of Instagram Orange County Photographer Recap for 2017!  Here are just a few of the significant things that happened for my Orange County lifestyle photography business in 2017:

  1. I won the international NAPCP competition and was named the “Best New Emerging Child Photographer;” 
  2. Crow’s Nest Photography became KC Crow Photographer;
  3. My photography business moved from Brea to Yorba Linda, California while I continued to photograph children and families throughout Orange County;
  4. I had five images accepted as entries into the Orange County Fair and three of them won Honorable Mention awards;
  5. I created a Facebook group focusing on helping parents to get their images off of their hard drives and into something tangible;
  6. I sold out my holiday mini sessions as well as my Christmas Magic sessions;
  7. Booking began for my first photography course aimed at teaching parents how to use their DSLR cameras to take better pictures of their kids;
  8. I was a co-leader of our local Clickin Moms annual photo walk; and
  9. I became the Orange County Ambassador for the National Association of Professional Child Photographers and hosted two meet ups for the group.

In addition to the Orange County photographer business highlights, I thought it would be fun to share the top nine images of 2017 of my own kiddos according to the number of “likes” received on Instagram.  My overall most liked images were my Christmas Magic session shares which will have their own dedicated post and recap coming next week.
