3 years ago today my niece, Emily Brooke, was brought into this world. It was one of the happiest days of my life. My sister lived 750 miles away so unfortunately I couldn't be there. So, they put me on speaker phone in the hospital room so I could hear everything. That first cry was the best sound I have ever heard and I will never forget it. Emily is the most amazing little girl I have ever been around. She is the one who made me realize I had a love for photography. The first picture of her below was taken at 2 weeks old and it was the first "photo shoot" I had ever done. It was done with a canon power shot, before I even had a real camera! I loved taking pictures of her so much, I started taking more and more and it led me to where I am today. Thanks Emily Brooke! You bring more joy to my life than you will ever know.
