I'm a big fan of real life: the imperfect, gritty joy that comes from big, honest striving.
My camera is my pen. It's the tool I use to write down stories. Stories of love, grief, hope, humor, potential, connection, and delight.
My own story includes a husband, four kids, two cats, lots of books, ballerinas, and a slew of struggling house plants.
What's your story?
I'd love to help you put it onto pixels and paper.
Moments that matter.
Motherhood and Photography go hand-in-hand for me. I learned photography because I wanted my children to know that they belong to moments of beauty and light. I wanted them to see that they are part of a beautiful whole.
About my work
My photography style is rich and clean. I always aim to match colors as true to life as possible, and often use light in a way that adds depth and drama. I have a studio in midtown CDA, and am also available to shoot on location anywhere your heart desires. I am comfortable with both studio and natural light.
I am not a huge planner. I prefer to see what the moment gives me and make the most of it. Photo sessions with me tend to be very laid back. I am completely unphased by rowdy children, bad weather, and wardrobe malfunctions. But a big part of my work does include photoshop to clean up acne, muddy knees, unsightly environmental distractions (like garbage), and to occasionally swap heads from one shot to the next to make sure everyone looks their best in the final image. Do I sound like a good fit for you?
