Memories and Emotions

As I perused my previous blog entries last night I was overcome with many different emotions.  Without realizing it, I smiled, I giggled, I awwwwed....  Then at one particular entry, I froze.  I recognized that all of those emotions brought me back to how I felt at that moment in time when I pressed the shutter release button on my camera.  For one day I'm a part of my couples' lives, living in their moments and capturing the joy and love that they feel.  It's impossible not to be affected by it; I delight that my heart is touched by it.  And it was truly an affirmation of why I do what I do, and why I love it so much.

During Tuesday night's engagement session, my bride and groom, Nicole and Kelly, asked me how I enjoyed being a photographer full time.  My response to them was, "You know how people go through life wondering what they want to be when they grow up?  Well, I found it!"  (Okay, my actual response was much longer and more incoherent than that, but they understood what I meant!)

So all that to say.... Thank You to all of my clients for entrusting me with such an important time in your lives, and for all of the wonderful memories that I am able to look back on so fondly!'s a sneak peek at Nicole and Kelly's Georgetown engagement session... (I heart you two!!)
