Because of its location and history, Massachusetts offers a delightful diversity of scenic family photography opportunities. Beginning on the east coast, Massachusetts opens up with a dreamscape of ideal family shoot locations on Cape Cod. Curling north and bordered by Cape Cod Bay, Buzzards Bay, Vineyard Sound and Nantucket Sound, Cape Cod is cuddled in beautifully by the Atlantic Ocean, making way for ideal family photography opportunities for those on vacation. The islands of Nantucket Island and Martha’s Vineyard present exquisite family portrait locations that make for wonderful family pictures. As the capital and largest city in the state, the Boston Metropolitan region is home to the USS Constitution, the Freedom Trail, and many other historical sites that make it one of the most exceptional locations to celebrate your family in photos. Massachusetts is split by the presence of the Connecticut River in its central region and hosts the beautiful Berkshire Mountains and Housatonic Valley on its western portion, which creates stunning family photography opportunities.

I graduated from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth with a BFA in Digital Media. My roots were formed studying graphic design, animation, early web design and fine art. I stuck to a strict web-safe palette of 218 colors, carefully sliced and optimized graphics for dial-up, and constructed tables with hand-coded HTML. I shot on film and developed my own prints in the darkroom. I sketched live models in charcoal and conté crayons. And I designed and scripted my first interactive app with Macromedia Director. I began my professional career as a web designer, working for marketing and advertising agencies in and around Boston.
I'm a Boston Wedding and Family Photographer with a natural, relaxed and unobtrusive approach. I studied documentary photography at the Maryland Institute of Art and the University of Wales. I was honored and delighted to receive the Grand Prize at the Nikon Discovery Awards, be selected for the 25 Under 25 Up and Coming American Photographers and show my work through exhibitions and publications. I began using my own approach to wedding and family photography and immediately fell in love with the job as I love being around people and capturing interactions and emotions.
When my son Teddy chose me to be his Mama, everything changed. I became more patient, more kind, more silly, more giving and WAY more aware of how fleeting and special our lives truly are. As I grew as a mother I also grew as an artist and every day I seek to capture the love, laughter, and human connection that make up our lives.
I love photographing family energy... been doing it in the documentary feel for 17 years. Family sessions are one of the most cherished things for my camera. As proof, despite nearly two decades as a pro, and being published from music albums to museums, my most cherished honor in the medium is an image of my late Uncle Ron, on the front cover of his funeral program. It captures a wily smirk and was made at a large family gathering one sunny Summer day in New Hampshire. It meant the world to be surprised with that. The natural moments of connection of your family, through big open hearts, is what I'm after. It's a mix of documentary, lifestyle and fine art. It's real. It's slow and soft or loud and crazy... it's everything. The goal is to become one of your family photographers through life, one session at a time. Often we'll put something physical that you already share together as a family. Could be cooking. Could be basketball or surfing or soccer or skiing. You enjoy, and I'll document the magic.

With nearly 27 years as a career photojournalist, some street photography, and my ongoing documentary photography of my son, I ventured out to offer this wonderful, and for me, natural and honest form of family photography. I love the everyday moments in life; those should not be overlooked. They are valuable. This work is an approach and philosophy of photographing a subject much like like I have done in my career: looking for real, honest, spontaneous and surprising moments in life that ultimately tell a story about your family. Whether your family is simply playing at home, or involved in your daily routines, you will be surprised at seeing these photographic moments that will make you smile from your everyday lives. Or I can tag along on an outing to the local park, go along while shopping with the kids (now that is fun!), documenting the birth of your child, special family events, or even dropping in to document your vacation time. In the end, I want you to look at the photos now, and in 20 years, and say, “That’s Us; that’s what we did together as a family.”
