BEHIND THE LENS

I love having found my *happy place* in photography.
From my earliest childhood memories of finger-painting at the kitchen table, to undergraduate and graduate degrees in Studio Art and Art History. I have always known staying true to myself meant continuing to create.

My career path from Museums to Arts Education dovetailed into pursuing photography full time. And now, having photographed hundreds of weddings and families - I recognize the common thread in it all - the magic is in the process ... the process of being fully present, of mindfully photographing on analog film, of being open to artistic exploration; and most importantly, of genuinely connecting with each client. 

A love of travel also stems from my childhood, where the open road was a call to adventure for my parents and all of my siblings in tow. I carry on this tradition with my own family; and, in my work as a photographer -- exploring vibrant cities and remote beaches around the world. And yes, I dream of endless adventures with my movie-quoting-singing-loud-in-the-car family in the ultimate, decked-out #vanlife! 

fun fact: Transitioning to a plant-based diet over a decade ago gave me new life! (Though my family consists of omnivores, no judgement here.)

*WHAT"S WITH THE BARE FEET?

Have you noticed the times you are comfortable kicking off your shoes? 

For me, it's in all my favorite moments and with all my favorite people ...

  • in the comfort of home, hanging out with family
  • on sandy shorelines, splashing in the surf
  • *well* into the open-dance-floor portion of a wedding celebration, surrounded by fellow lovers of life fully invested in this moment - right here, right now!
  • that time at a summer wedding when it rained so hard the ground turned to *moosh*, and the couple unexpectedly and spontaneously each took their turn walking down the aisle to be married *sans* shoes

It's this level of comfort, relatability, fun, and just plain being your unencumbered self that I welcome each and every time I pick up my camera.
