I fell in love with photography at the age of 16 when my mother received a Canon SLR film camera for her birthday and I "acquired it." I haven't been able to put a camera down since. Capturing the life and breath of a moment has been my goal since I started. Whether it be a wedding, portrait, or fine art project, I try and capture what I feel, more than what I see.
I received my BFA in Photography from the College of Saint Rose a decade ago, and started my business right out of college, but I didn't start to really grow as a photographer until I had three little inspirations of my own. Becoming a mother has been my life's greatest challenge, up to this point, and having to teach myself to slow down and pay attention has been a benefit to train my eye. I am excited to continue this journey and see my growth, not only as a photographer, but in all aspects of life.
So why photography? We need to capture those moments of love, life, and laughter; to remind us when times get rough, that there are good times and more to come; to hang on to those precious moments when we are at our lowest; to cling to love when at times it seems so difficult.
Please, contact me to photograph your precious love: your wedding ceremony in a large field full of daisies; your children splashing around in a pond; your precious new bundle of joy in your arms; your first dance in an old barn; you and your spouse throwing orange leaves in the air while your children run under them; or your parents wrapping their arms around each other 50th wedding anniversary.
"I am what I am
by the Grace of God."
