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.

Sam's Bar Mitzvah!

I was thrilled to photograph Sam's Bar Mitzvah Temple B'nai Shalom in Fairfax Station, Virginia.

The Bar Mitzvah was followed by an evening reception at the gorgeous Springfield Golf and Country Club in Springfield, VA.

Susan Solo came with me to photograph the day. I love this photo of Sam that she caught.

Sam is the nephew of Jodie and Steve. It was so fun to see them again!

Chris and the rest of the team from Unique Dreams DJs put on a great show and got everyone up on the dance floor all night long!

Check out more of the fun in the slideshow!
