about the artist

 

Quite different from the gorgeous mountains of Pennsylvania, my road took me ever further south, every few years, on a grand adventure called the U.S. Army. While I hold those years dear to my heart, my passion is and always has been, connecting with people.

I like to sit in airports for longer than necessary just to hear someone’s story. Coffee shops get me, too. A poetry major by choice (three cheers for liberal arts degrees), I always wanted to connect myself to, and understand myself through, art. As time passed, I discovered the camera was more my medium. With a Canon in my hand, I never looked back.

I strive to capture genuine connections, life’s biggest moments, the pure and the raw. Through telling your story, I hope to portray your children in all of their magnanimous beauty and display the outpouring of love you undoubtedly share. And I don’t want these moments to last for one minute less than forever. For this reason, I offer a full service photography experience, from your consultation all the way until we hang your art and turn the pages of your album - I want to be by you every step of the way.  I currently offer lifestyle photography sessions to families and children of all ages, including lifestyle newborn and hospital "Fresh 48" sessions.  In addition, I have a special place in my heart for maternity sessions, as there is no greater bond than that of motherhood.

It goes without saying that I could not have had the courage and confidence to go on this journey without the love, sweat and tears of my husband, a true American hero, and my two sons - Charlie and Jackson. Through them I find inspiration to shoot and learn and grow - even when I’m tired because, well, three boys, ya know?
