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.

Kim and Kamal :: Engaged!

As promised, here are Kim and Kamal's gorgeous engagement photos. We met down at the FDR Memorial at sunrise when the cherry blossoms were in full bloom. It was a cold cold morning, but Kim rocked her adorable dress with style. Their wedding should be much warmer... they'll be wed in October in Orlando, Florida. I can't wait!

I was so excited just now to see your blog with posts in my feed-reader! These are beautiful! You rock for braving the cold and the cherry blossom peak season to get these images, but it was so worth it. Kim and Kamal look amazing and they must love these photos!
