  1. All so beautiful! I'm shocked that these are just your SECOND favorites... can't wait to see the best of the best tomorrow! (Although there are a few missing for me I'd like to see) :)

  2. They are all GORGEOUS. My favorite part of your blog is seeing your amazing photography. Can't wait to see the super real favorites tomorrow!

  3. Incredible photos're really talented!

  4. @Beylah - well you should recognize a few of tomorrows set because they're hanging on our walls.

    @Brie & John - Thanks for the support. Let me know ASAP if you feel like any photo's you've seen are missing from the set so I can make sure they go in tomorrows set of #'s 1-25.

  5. Great Photo's. What great images to look at, at the end of the day

  6. Very good photos.

    Are they all sitting on a hard drive somewhere? If so, you should really consider posting them online. Personally, I like flickr. It lets me categorize and organize them, and gives me view count and referrer statistics. And my paid account gives me unlimited uploads, so I basically use it as a backup.
