Before I am a photographer, I am a daughter, a sister, an auntie, a friend. Maybe that's why I cry during every father daughter dance. I laugh at every toast. I well up when an Officiant pronounces a couple husband and wife. I buzz with joy chasing children around the playground. I feel awe when a newborn's tiny hand clutches my pinky finger. I draw from the emotions I have experienced through my own life's most precious moments to know when and how to capture those of others, and I usually can't help feeling overwhelmed myself! The emotional rush I feel when I'm behind the camera is what makes me love what I do. The joy I bring others through photography is what makes me do what I love.

Dominican Republic

I spent an amazing 9 days in the Dominican Republic with my college roommate, Danielle. Danielle was a Peace Corps Volunteer in the DR after college and she was my tour guide on our trip. We spent a couple days in Santo Domingo, a couple days visiting the villages (or campos) that she lived and worked in when she was a Peace Corps Volunteer, and then ended our trip with a relaxing stay at a beautiful resort in Bavaro Beach.

I wanted to share some pictures from my trip and you can see more in the slideshow here.
