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.

Jessica and Brian :: Engaged!

On Sunday evening, I headed out to Ellicott City to meet up with Jessica and Brian for their engagement session. I can't believe after all these years living in the DC area I'd never been to Ellicott City before - it is such a cute town! It was so fun to explore a new area and I can't wait to go back up there again.

We headed over to on old abandoned factory on the edge of the historic area of Ellicott City and grabbed some of my favorite images from the day.

This next series is also one of my favorites. These doorways were perfect and I just love how this series turned out.

Jessica and Brian brought along their adorable dog, Sebastian. What a cutie!

Check out the rest of the session in the slideshow!

It was so fun hanging out with you guys! Can't wait for your wedding in October!
