What an honor to be invited to photograph an event for twelve years in a row! I was so excited when the Onslow Cotillion first contacted me in 2003 to photograph their Christmas Ball. I was a very new photographer that first year and quite nervous. Each year when they scheduled me for the Ball, I was thrilled that they appreciated my work enough to have me back. And they had me back again and again! Through the years, it has been one of my favorite events of the holiday season. I have had the opportunity to work with dozens of amazing honorees and their families, as well as lots of Cotillion members. This year the honorees were McNair Moore, Rachel Owens and Lydia Patselas. McNair and Lydia had been in front of my camera more than once, but I had never had the pleasure of meeting Rachel. All three girls were absolutely delightful. They were ready on time, had fun posing for me, and were willing to try anything.
