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.

Birthday Celebration x2!

On Monday, I went to my monthly Pictage sponsored photography meeting (Pictage User Group - PUG!) and it was my birthday, so a few of my friends - Jenn, Sarah, Armin, Geoff, Paul, and Ralph joined me for dinner before the meeting. Geoff's birthday was a few days earlier, so we had a joint celebration!

And the "x2" ... well, we're celebrating a new birth ... the birth of my new niece, Scarlet, to my dear brother, Dan and sister-in-law, Grace. I'm so excited to meet her in a couple of weeks! Hugs and kisses to you guys - I can't wait to see you (and of course take lots and lots of pictures at Scarlet's first photo shoot!)! I couldn't be a prouder sister and aunt!
