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.

Pictage Partner Conference in LA

I spent most of last week in Los Angeles at the Pictage Partner Conference. It was such a treat to spend time with some of the most amazing photographers from across the country. I heard fabulous speakers and hung out with great friends - new and old.

A couple fun images of my friends Sarah, Alex, and Shawn at the conference - it was such a blast spending time with you!

WOW! Shawn looks EXACTLY like his Avatar on the forums. How does that work? I know I don't!

So, I'm all about going to WPPI this spring, and if all goes well, at least one partnercon next year, so we'll definitely have to hang out!
