Every time I pick up my camera, I’m excited; excited to capture each unique moment, from the small and ordinary, to the grand and once in a lifetime. My photography is how I speak. Every opportunity to shoot a wedding, a family, first love, the ocean or countryside is an opportunity for me to create art.
I believe that love is a profound gift from God, so I’m passionate about capturing it in all its forms: the love of a family for each other, a mother and her unborn child, or a newly engaged couple. Celebrating God’s gift of love is an act of worship, and a way to use photography to bless others.
I am based out of North Attleborough, MA, but I travel all over New England and all over the country for photo shoots, from Florida to California.
I grew up on the North Shore of Massachusetts, a beautiful ocean-front landscape that encouraged me to pursue my passions. I now live on the South Shore, where I share my artistic passion with my husband and creative partner, Peter. We’re always traveling to find new and unique moments to capture.
I believe in capturing life’s moments naturally. When asked “what’s your style?” I think that can be summed up in one word: “natural.” I believe in capturing moments as they happen organically, without relying on stiff poses. I believe in keeping Photoshop to a minimum, because I believe our uniqueness makes us special, and our differences make us beautiful.
A big part of that is making you comfortable and relaxed. I love capturing the moments that happen when you are just being yourself.
I feel truly honored to document your family, your wedding, your life.
When I’m not taking pictures, you can typically find me perusing local antique shops and flea markets, curled up on the couch with my husband reading or watching a Netflix marathon together, or getting my hands dirty in the garden.
