My Background

Born and raised in southern Maine, I loved taking pictures of my friends, the family goats, and interesting houses with my Fisher Price 110. I enrolled in my first photography class at 17 and was hooked from then on.
Since junior high I had ambitions of being a pediatrician, though early in my college career I found this path was not for me. When I announced to my parents that I was switching majors from pre-med Biology to Photography, they didn't even bat an eye. I had immersed myself in all kinds of arts since I was a toddler, so they saw this as coming back to my calling.
Post-college I spent ten years in the great city of Chicago. Upon my arrival I worked for a commercial children's photographer while assisting many other photographers on their shoots. After five years I struck out on my own to shoot weddings, events, and portraits.
I'm now back east in the amazing city of New York City, enjoying the neighborhood of Astoria, continuing my portrait and wedding work.
I earned a B.S. in Cinema & Photography (with a Music Minor) from Ithaca College. Since graduation I've remained an active member in the alumni community.

My Approach

Family & Children's Portraits

I adore capturing the precious moments of children's lives: holding a parent's hand, cuddling the family pet, playing with siblings, and exploring the world around them. I love to interact with the children while photographing their adorable faces.
The world is my studio! I'll come to your house, meet you at your favorite neighborhood spot, or join you anywhere else you'd like to explore.
I look forward to meeting your family!

Weddings

Your wedding is one of the most exciting things in your life: capturing your happiness and emotions, the giggles of children, and the beauty of your ceremony. When you work with me, you'll have your entire day captured forever – from when you get ready to when you're rockin' the dance floor. Your posed images will have the look of relaxed candidness, resulting in photographs that you will enjoy having for a lifetime. And you won't even know I'm there – my unobtrusive style of shooting will lead to artistically captured memories for you.

I look forward to talking with you about your beautiful day and making it memorable!
