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.

Adorable Family Portraits

In my quest to catch up with all my blogging, here's another fabulous fall family portrait session!

I loved photographing this family! Beth & Rich were so fun playing with their kids and the kids are just too cute!

Ahhhh Jessica,
Chicago was great fun, wasn't it?! I've been stalking your blog ever since we got back.
We'll be in Vegas for a couple of days at the start of the week. I'm on the 'waiting list' for PartnerCon! What's up with that?
Your work is wonderful!
Hugs, Joan
