What a year 2013 was. It was a non stop ride for me with so many great things going on.

I will start with some photography contest winning photos, give you my top 5’s posts in multiple categories including views, Facebook likes, comments, and personal favorites and I than will end with a few odd and ends from last year and what I am looking forward to this coming year.

2013 ended with some small rebranding changes to my image and identity along with working on my core business strengths in corporate and business photography services, child model and boutique photography, and portraits including senior pictures. dewitzphotography.com saw 3x more traffic than in 2012 and over 11x the traffic seen in 2011. The very popular and well published Alice in Wonderland Series will continue in 2014 along with the new Red riding Hood Series. I hope you enjoyed this look back at my great year and I can’t wait to work with you in 2014.
