I enjoy everything about being a photographer - the technical and the creative, the interactions with others, getting to know new people and learn new things.
But some photoshoots are extra special. Like this one with my very good friend Kathleen O'Shaughnessy. I went to lunch with her on the day she found out she was going to be a mother, cheered her on throughout her pregnancy, and was very excited about her birth of her adorable son.
I was also pleased to take her first family Christmas portraits, experiment with colorful decorations, and celebrate the birth of a bright new star in the world.
