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.

Sweet Isabella

Before my "auntie tour" to Ohio last week (blog posts coming soon on my visits to see Scarlet, Tate, and Justine), I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph Isabella and her parents, Marine and Danny. We met in Fairfax for their family portrait session on a Saturday morning with rain threatening. Luckily for us, we managed to sneak in the session between rain drops and naptime.

It was wonderful meeting you! Thank you so much for choosing me to document your family.
