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.

Tate & Justine Come to DC

Tate loved riding the carousel on the Mall!

Justine had fun cracking crabs!

After a long hot day, Justine wasn't thrilled about having her picture taken with Abe.

Tate never fails to crack me up!

Justine sure loved her "poppies"! A great way to stay cool in the ridiculous heat.

My beautiful sweet niece... we had such a great time hanging out together!

Tate, so sweetly sleeping!

Thanks for coming to play with me! It was so fun getting to see you all weekend long (and Grancy, Mandy and Marla too!)

Omg, in the Tate montage: middle row, left-most photo - I LOVE his little expression! That would crack me up. So cute. And Justine is just so beautiful. Lucky YOU to have such fun subjects!

Seriously. Tate is ridiculous. That baby is toooo cute! I only wish you had gotten a shot of Justine's "dirty eyes." HA!
