My Favorite Photos of 2015

At the end of the year I always look through the trove of photos to reminisce. Each time I take out my camera I remind myself to live the moment first and photograph the moment second. And so I love photos not for their composition or sharpness, but because they remind me of

Comments for My Favorite Photos of 2015

  2. We love you guys! Can’t wait for a lot more fun and photos in 2016!

  3. Eve says:

    The photo of a young Penny looking at you with her head on the edge of the couch cushions always gets a chuckle out of me. But it’s hard to really have a favorite as they are all good photos! Hope you guys all have a safe New Years! Here’s to 2016!

  4. Victoria says:

    I love these pictures – they are wonderful and show how happy everyone is.

  5. They really do say it all! Doc’s face, though…. OMG.

  6. Jo Rhodes says:

    Best wishes for for new year!

    Jo, Sam and Dean
    And Joey, Emmett and Atzi (cats)

  7. Loved the retrospective! Thanks for sharing your year with us. I look forward to seeing your blog every day, especially on those days when I really need to happy break. Be well, enjoy your awesome family, and have a great new year!

  8. What a great set of photos – hard to pick a favorite. The one of you sleeping with Penny on your lap is pretty great though.

  9. KDKH says:

    It must have been really tough to cull your photos to pick the best ones – you take so many, and they are all so good!

  10. Kismet says:

    A good 2016 to you all (even Penny).

  11. Happy New Year to you & crew!

  12. Pat says:

    You’ve obviously had a great year! Hope there’ll be lots more. 🙂

  13. Francesca says:

    Love all the photos and your daily blog! Like others, I can’t pic a favorite! Happy New year to all of you!

  14. Max Davies and Kali says:

    Hi Will,
    Truly some wonderful shots. From the dramatic two dogs at sunset, to Penny and Eko’s ‘framed’ shot, to dressing Eko for your wedding, to the nose on the tabletop, they are moments and memories in time. But Kali’s favourite is the one with the little girl in the pink and black polka dot blouse and Eko gazing at each other. A poignant and moving photograph that brings a tear of joy to any dog owner’s eye.
    Where was this taken and what was the event or occasion?

    To you, Emily, Eko, Penny, and the rest of the cast, thanks for the memories.
    Have a great New Year
    Max, Akina, Pinga, Belaire, and Kali

  15. Ellen Quilty says:

    The photos cracked me up all over again.Love the “you may kiss the bride” moment.But wait I thought that was the groom’s job!

  16. coastingnz says:

    Happy New Year. It’s been fun following your adventures with the pups but also your own – lots of amazing things happened for you last year with your marriage to your beautiful wife, buying your new home and great adventures with your brother and Doc. Thanks for sharing and helping our year be more fun too – I’ve laughed and cried with you. Wishing you amazing things for 2016 – look forward to seeing what the year brings. xo

  17. I always give a chuckle when I see the Penny pre-sneeze.
    To our favorite Chicagoans, we hope you all have a happy and prosperous New Year and may many a deer spontaneously shed its antlers at your feet!

  18. Esther Walker says:

    I have loved your blog and your amazing dogs. Thank you for never failing g to put a smile on my face. Happy new year

  19. C Taylor says:

    As Bob Hope always said as he ended his shows “Thanks for the memories”! It’s great remembering this year’s events. Here’s to a great 2016, and the best to you, Emily, Eko, Penny and extended family!

  20. Tietser says:

    Priceless, each and everyone of them. Many, many thanks for inviting us again and again in joining your adventures. You are truly a very talented photographer. To be able to capture the subtle details in the dogs faces in such a way that we get a glimpse of their personalities. A great gift. We look forward to what’s up and what’s new every day and have laughed and cried with you. Bless Doc too. His face is one of a kind. Wishing you the best of everything this new year with loads of fun with the gang and thank you again for sharing.

  21. Clapping our paws over here!!!!! What an exciting and adventurous year you have had! Can’t wait to see what is in store for 2016!! We LOVE ALL OF YOU! Happy Happy New Year!

  23. Merry Band of Hooligans says:

    We love ALL pictures you post! Can we request you start the new year with a family picture? Of you, Emily, Eko and Penny? Start your year off showing the joy of your new life?
