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.

2 Kids, a dog named Ike, and a pile of leaves - more fun family portraits!

Elizabeth and Noam had me photograph their family again this year. Sweet Maren's picture is the opening image on my website. I can't believe how much she has grown up in just one year! Isn't she adorable? Big brother Ethan is still fun and fiesty. I love the image of him being thrown up in the air!

I love it when families return to me each year - it's great to see how the families grow and change in just one year!

I like Ike! (I'm from Kansas, so I gotta say that! I TOTALLY couldn't resist!)

Actually, Ike looks like my boyfriend's dog, Fred.

Ike licking on Elizabeth's face is so cute! They're about the same size (but I have a feeling not for long!)

I'm excited to see the updates on your Web site once you've finished family portrait season!
