The best part of my job as a photographer is getting to reunite with people I knew growing up and meeting new people I probably would never have met otherwise. Last weekend I photographed Ms. Hatton's 90th birthday party. It was my first time meeting her and I was immediately struck by her beauty. Had I not known it was her 90th birthday celebration, I wouldn't have guessed she was a day over 70. She even got up and danced at one point.  As I spent time at her party, it was touching watching all her guests greet her; family, friends, kids she babysat through the years. It's clear Ms. H has touched many lives. She may not know it, but after that day, she touched mine,too.
