Capturing the Best in Ourselves

Catherine and Will

There have been monumental times in my career when I knew that a session was going to change me forever.  When I decided to start photography as a business I wrote my friends in town and asked them if they would be guinea pigs.  I had some very brave soles that trusted me with their children and believed in my abilities even before I believed in myself.  I was so green and so new and each session I did something I had never done before.  It was the best thing I could have done. Catherine and Will's mom was one of the first people to contact me.  I pulled out a black drape that my husband gave me while I was in school for photography, but had never used it before.  I sat Catherine in the chair and the first picture I captured changed my career.  I then became the photographer that took the "girl in the chair" picture.  Thank you, thank you, thank you for having faith in me before I did.  

So, it has been a year since that first session and I was able to photograph these two beautiful children again.  Here are some pictures from the first session and our latest session.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed taking them.
