I have special memories of my childhood credited to photos saved over the years. When I was a senior, I had my first portraits taken as I announced to the world, "Hey, I'm an adult now"! I cherish the behind the scenes photos of my husband proposing to me. Then, our first session together announcing our engagement, all while being captured by a dear, inspiring friend.  My wedding day stands alone, filled with importance and meaning, but I could not expect the sweetness of what was to come. Filling our home with a child and watching his memories begin. Being a mother has changed the way I take pictures. I live vicariously through the lives & moments I'm photographing; as if I was wanting these moments to remember for myself and for my family.
