Let's Get Your Session on My Calendar!
I can't wait to hear from you!
Inquire


My mother gifted me my first 35mm camera for my high school graduation, and my first film SLR for my college graduation. Those gifts sent me on my way. As a Spanish major, and later as a high school Spanish teacher, I was fortunate enough to travel internationally a great deal. What I looked forward to most in my travels was new opportunities to make beautiful pictures of daily life in those cultures. I have always been drawn to capturing the day-to-day, observing people at work and play, and capturing connections. 

Though I began my journey as photographer long before I became a parent, motherhood has undoubtedly shaped my creative vision. Still, I am drawn to capturing the beauty in the everyday: days full of creative chaos, tough love, legos, watercolors, cheerios, tears, homemade cookies, love notes from my preschooler, reading time snuggles, rainy day walks, spontaneous hugs, and countless “mommy I love you’s” whispered even after I’ve lost my temper.  These are the moments I wish to remember through my portraiture. 

Details about me: I am a Western New Yorker at heart, but spent a decade teaching in Washington, DC before moving to Lehigh Valley, PA in 2014. I have a Master’s degree in Latin American Studies, my hubby is a professor, and I homeschool my three children. We love visits to farms, working in our vegetable garden, exploring new wildlands for nature study, homemade pizza Fridays and pancake Sundays.
