Tyler Plank Photography 2012 Image of the Year Contest, Round 1 | Bethesda, MD Family Photographer

Whew 2012 was a whirlwind of a wonderful year!  I was so honored to photograph repeat clients and so happy to meet new ones.  With over 50 sessions I found it impossible to narrow my favorites down to even 25.  As you scroll through them you will probably notice a trend… while I do a variety of shots in a session, my favorites tend to be close-up and focus on eyes, expressions and/or evoke emotion whether it be one of silliness, love, happiness or a serious moment.  This year I am asking for your help in narrowing it down to 10.  Vote for YOUR favorite photo from the below 36 images and the Top 10 will move onto the final round for the 2012 Tyler Plank Photography Image of the Year.  Prizes will be announced in the next round of voting once the Top 10 have been determined.  After the second (final) round of voting prizes will then be awarded to the top 3 winners to include complimentary session and/or print credit and/or product featuring the winning image(s).  You have until Tuesday, Jan 29th at 11:00am EST to get your votes in (only one vote per IP address).  Now without further ado and in no particular order

Clarification: To vote scroll to the end of the photos, click on the circle next to the number of the photo for which you’d like to vote and then click on “vote” at the bottom.  Comments will not be counted as votes.  You may have to wait for the poll portion to load and vote from a laptop or desktop.  Thank you!

Happy Holidays! | Bethesda, MD Child Photographer

Well the holiday prep and festivities are in full force at our household and I will be breaking until sometime in January.  So from my home to yours I just wanted to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday.  See you all in 2013!  I am still mulling around the theme for the TPP 2012 Photo of the Year and I think I have it figured out.  Stay tuned but until then…

And look at this adorable baby boy I had the privilege of photographing again… what a fantastic way to end 2012 in the studio!

The Custom Layflat Photo Album | Bethesda, MD Family Photographer

It’s been a while since I’ve posted examples of some of the products I offer so I thought I would take a moment to share a custom 8×8 layflat photo album I designed for my own family.  The quality is impeccable and I am proud to have it laying out for display.  The cover is gorgeous, the pages are thick and the album opens completely flat as you can see in the photo below (and hence the product description).  For more information on having your own custom layflat photo book designed from your session contact me at info@tylerplankphotography.com.

Holiday Photos- Family Time! | Dickerson, MD Child Photographer

Over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend we had lots of quality family time here in MD and of course I had to get their Christmas card photos done.  I last photographed the triplets when they were turning one year old.  Now they are 18 months, walking, and full of individual personalities.  I also loved this location.  🙂

And here are our cousins whom I photograph every year.   They are in the tween and teen stage, definitely too cool for me but have fun regardless. 🙂  Their mom photographed me photographing them which I thought was a kind of neat viewpoint and comparison to see.

Next up (soon I hope) will be pics of my kiddos for our card.  But first I have to complete current client orders and galleries!
