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.

Ophelia... the fabulous furry fat cat!

When I was shooting Lee and Collin's super fun portraits, I took these fun portraits of Ophelia, Emily's sweet baby! We had convened at Emily's since it was close to our shooting location - Dupont Circle - and while Emily was busy making Lee more gorgeous than she already is, I captured Ophelia in one of her many favorite nap locations. I just love her gorgeous eyes - they really are mesmerizing.

I caught Ophelia mid-yawn...

I think Ophelia looks kind of regal in this shot!

Clients often ask if they can bring their pets along during their portrait session and the answer is always YES! I love shooting your pets - and I'm happy to schedule a special session just for your favorite animal or you can bring them along when you book your portrait session. Contact me for more details!
