2016 was another fantastic year of celebrating love, happiness, and new families at Danielle McAfee Photography.  Thank you to all of my wonderful clients for your support and friendship, and for making 2016 our best year yet! <3

As we reflect on the events of the past year, I like to look back and remember some of the “best of” moments of 2016.  Due to a phenomenally busy summer and fall season, I am a bit behind with writing blog posts, so many of these images have not yet been shared on the blog — never fear, their blog posts are coming soon! 🙂

I hope you enjoy these images as much as I do.   Here’s to an amazing 2017!  Happy New Year, friends!
