Nice to Meet You! Let me tell you a little..

About Me

 

Sometimes we all have to slow down and take a moment to document those precious milestones and occasions. After 8 years of photographing and managing in family portrait studios, I decided to go out on my own as a freelancer. In 2019, I began my own business, photographing portraits in a fresh outdoor environment. I am here to create a stress-free and fun photographic story for you and your family!

 

In the 90’s, I picked up a camera for the first time, when I was five years old. My Mom showed me how to load a 35 mm film roll into our skinny Kodak Ektralite camera. I brought it with me on the regular nature walk around a local lake, which my family and I visited often. It was an Autumn day, so of course, there was plenty of inspiration with the surrounding colorful trees and reflections. When I received the package of prints back from Rite Aid, I leafed through them and was instantly intrigued! Eventually, snaps of sunflowers, and the neighbors’ pets turned into pictures of my first model, my little sister. I dressed her up in tutus and tiaras, making her dance around and pose while I snapped away. Coincidentally she grew up to be a musician/model/actor. She’s still my muse even to this day! 

 

As I grew older, I loved getting those packages of prints back every now and then. Luckily, my High School provided film photography classes. There I built a portfolio to begin Art School in 2007. At the Pennsylvania College of Art & Design, I developed a passion for Documentary Portraiture, which I still incorporate in my story-telling photography to the present. After I graduated with my Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Photography in 2012, I swiftly started working for a Portrait Photography Corporation. Starting as an Associate Photographer, I climbed the corporate ladder into upper management positions in several states and locations. During my time there, I helped train other photographers to develop their skills; learned how to run a business; provided excellent customer service; mastered the art of child interaction; and practiced a broad variety of different subject matters. After my time with the company, I ventured out into my own freelance portraiture. I moved up to New Hampshire with my then boyfriend, Marc; got married in Fall of 2020 and now we're just living life!  I now enjoy working mainly outside with natural lighting,  for my clients’ customized shoots. Every photographic story is different and very fun to write together along the way! 

If you are looking for photos outside of children and family portraits, I also provide shoots for: Couples, Maternity, Senior Portraits,  Boudoir, Elopements, Engagements & Business Headshots.
