These are awesome! But I have to say I bet hnavig Katie as a subject made it a little easier. She is just as beautiful now as she was when I considered her one of my best friends and we, as teenage girls, traipsed around DC and Capital Hill alone, but together, wishing for a future when we would live there and shake things up. Now she's actually making it all come true! You did a wonderful job of showcasing Katie's spirit. I'm so happy she's found a man that shares it and a photographer that will capture the union of it!

Whenever I went to Snowbird in Hunter I always knew I'd wind up shooting the breeze with Ralph for at least a half-hour so I always took that into account when planning out my after skiing activites . Just another piece of my Hunter days becomes just a fond memory . Sleep Well My Friend .
