Last Fall I was graced with the opportunity to be the official photographer for an event with the Dalai Lama. There really aren't words to express the feelings around an opportunity such as this. I was excited, anxious, nervous, but mostly grateful. But that gratitude is the same gratitude I feel every day no matter who or what I'm photographing. I'm so grateful for each and every one of my clients, and for being chosen to capture some important milestone in their lives with portrait art.
