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.

Meet Baby Zoe!

My dear friends Jeff and Stacey welcomed a gorgeous baby girl, Zoe, into their family this week. I stopped by yesterday to meet Zoe - what a cutie pie! Of course, I brought my camera along and couldn't resist snapping a few quick pictures!

I just adore this picture of Stacey and Zoe. So sweet.

I've been so lucky to photograph big brothers Max and Elliott since each of them were born. So of course we needed to get all 3 siblings together!

This picture makes me laugh! I love how Elliott is holding is truck - just like Max is holding baby Zoe!
