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.

I received an email from this Mom last year after she saw the newborn session I had done for a friend of hers.  I was thrilled to hear her excitement about scheduling a session for her own family but disappointed we couldn’t make it work in the Fall!  We finally met up this Spring with big plans to meet at a great park she frequents with the kids.  But when we arrived, the park was closed.  No problem!  We just drove across the street to an open field, a barn, and beautiful light.  Locations are very important, don’t get me wrong, but it’s the personalities and connections of the people I photograph that I really try to capture.  I love working with families who are willing to open up in front of the camera, to play with their kids and show affection for one another as they would if I weren’t there.  This family brought it!  I loved every second of working with them and I hope I have the chance to do so again.
