15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Sweet Nothings Whispered in Her Ear

At my mom’s surprise 50th birthday party, I was the designated photographer, but when I noticed a funny interaction between my brother and his girlfriend, I turned the camera away from my mom to capture the moment. To this day, my family laughs about what my brother may have been whispering, but we know Joanna’s face was priceless.
