I love my family, photography, nature and yoga. I've been a photographer for 15 years. I worked as a photojournalist and multimedia photographer for Sun-Times Media in the Chicago area for six years and I've been photographing weddings and families for ten. My work has been recognized by the National Press Photographer's Association, Women in Photojournalism, Editor and Publisher, Illinois Press Photographer's Association, Illinois Press Association and Illinois Associated Press. I have a master's degree in environmental studies. I live in the Capital Region of Upstate New York with my husband and six-year-old son.
Influenced by a background in photojournalism, I strive to not only make beautiful and creative photographs of your family, but photos that capture the real emotion, candid moments, and unique personalities. After graduating from Rochester Institute of Technology in 2006 with a degree in Photojournalism, I spent six years as a newspaper photojournalist in New York and Nebraska, before moving back to my home state of Vermont where my wife and I have been photographing weddings and families since 2012.
Basic human nature compels us to take an interest in photography. How can we understand the passage of time, the reality of the past, and of right now, without it? I cannot think of any other medium that so greatly encompasses preservation, appreciation, gratitude, and documentation the way that photography does. Photographs have power. They can transport you to another time, they can conjure a once vivid memory after it fades, they can show you what love looks like and at the very least, they can record a moment or an image of something you never want to forget. The magnitude of family photography is what interests me. I strive to make images that are real, raw, and emotive. They are artistic and classic and genuine and in a few years, or in many years, they will be waiting for you when you want to recall the memories that you are making right now. I have been photographing weddings and families professionally for over 13 years in Philadelphia, New York, and surrounding areas. I've learned that it's not about being in the right place at the right time, it's about being open to everything that is happening around me.
