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.

Michelle and Ben :: Engaged!

I'm was absolutely thrilled when Michelle and Ben chose me to photograph their wedding in May in Baltimore. In December, we got together to photograph their engagement pictures. It was a cold and rainy day, but Michelle and Ben were troopers and they gave me a lovely tour of some of their favorite spots in the city.

I'm so excited for your wedding in May!
