About me

Photography is a dream job for me!  I've loved all things creative for as long as I can remember.  I'd taken photography classes here and there but it wasn't until after we brought our son home in 2004 that I became a student of the art, reading everything I could get my hands on and talking to anyone who would talk to me about it.

After enjoying a successful 13 year career in Marketing for a major publishing company, I found myself wanting to take on the role of the creative vendors I was hiring.  I took the leap and left the corporate world to pursue some exciting design opportunities.  It was then that photography and documenting my own child's life through pictures became an addiction, a passion that I love to share with others.

As a Mom of two, I know how quickly time passes and how those memories we think we'll remember forever quickly fade over time.  Being behind the camera capturing moments of your lives, then coming home and creating pieces of art that will tell your story for generations to come has been such an incredible experience.  Every client, every session is different and unique so this job never grows old!

My most important job, however, is right here at home.  I'm a wife to an amazingly supportive husband (I should write that twice!), and an adoptive mom to two beautiful kids, Brendan (7) and Kyra (3), who keep me running but I wouldn't change a thing.  I'm also a daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, friend and neighbor, not always in that order but all major roles that make my life feel complete.

pre-prom fun

I was excited when my brother asked if I could come home to take pictures of my nephew, Justin, before his prom!  It’s always fun seeing first hand how prom attire changes from year to year but also stays the same in many ways.  I knew Kyra would love seeing all the girls in their pretty gowns, looking like princesses, and Brendan would think the tuxes were really cool, of course.

If you know anyone up in that area, you know they’ve been dealing with rain almost every day, flooding, road closures, and lots of damage along Lake Champlain.  It’s a real mess!  But the rain held out and the kids had a beautiful day to enjoy all the pre and post prom events!

Justin and his date, Lorena, looked amazing in red.

And their friends looked stylin’ too!  I am in love with that pewter dress.  I have to give huge props to the kids and all their families who gathered and followed us without complaint as we strutted, vogued, jumped, and laughed a ton while I dragged them over stairs, grass, mud, and even stopping traffic in the street with a little Abbey Road reference. 😉  No dress or shoes were harmed in the making of these peeks.

Thanks for letting me hang out with you all, it was a lot of fun, and I hope you enjoyed your big night!

Ang - These kids have no idea how lucky they are to have these pics. EVERY prom pic I've ever seen is in front of a fireplace in the living room. These kids look like a new NBC show premiering this fall about graduating high school. So fun!

jessie bennett - always a pleasure to look at your photographs. I have a prom in 2 weeks and cant wait!
