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.

July 4th Visit to Boston!

Over the 4th of July weekend, I headed up to Boston to visit my sister, brother-in-law, and my adorable niece Justine and handsome nephew Patrick. It was such a great weekend and I had so much fun hanging out with family.

I thought I'd share some of my favorite images from the trip. And also, send a big happy 4th birthday to Justine!! I love you, sweet pea!

Jessica, you have such a unique talent at capturing the many sides of children- the innocence, the wonder, the sweetness, and the mischievous. Love it!
