I made a similar blog post last year in 2018 (see here) and I really enjoy having it not only as a place for clients to go and reflect back on some of their own portraits but it's also a place I can refer back to for inspiration and growth as a Portrait & Birth Photographer and Artist.
I won't waste too much of your time on this post with my own commentary- my hope is that each image you see will speak for itself and evoke something within you. And I'd love to hear how each image moves you specifically in the comments below! It's helpful to me.
Keep in mind- these are in no particular order as I love them ALL!
note: some images have not been shared due to client privacy.
