I am a happily married mother of two amazing kids and a fuzzy black dog. I am a graduate of Penn State University where I majored in Art History. I studied abroad in Rome, Italy which is where I got bit by the photography bug. I have had a long working career, including working for companies like Anheuser-Busch, JPMorganChase and GlaxoSmithKline. But after moving to North Carolina from New York City, I was finally able to follow my dreams of owning my very own photography business. I LOVE working with all different kinds of people and getting to know my clients. I have families that I have been photographing for years and years and it is absolutely my honor to document their childhoods and family stories.
A session with me starts with a conversation. We talk about what kind of look you want for your photos, what type of location suits that look, and what type of clothing helps us accomplish that goal. Once we've nailed down the basics we pick a date and time. I like to shoot one hour before sunset.
My goal is always to truly capture the essence of who you are at that very moment. Your children’s toothless smiles. Or your daughter’s incredible beauty as she reaches her milestone of high school graduation. Or the bond of your family as you sit close together in a beautiful setting. I will save that moment for you for eternity. I look at it as a true privilege to perform this service for you. I put my heart into every single frame. Every photograph is precious.
I specialize in on-location photography and I use available natural light. I photograph children, families, and high school seniors. I also love maternity and engagement sessions. I work in Raleigh, Cary, Morrisville, Apex, and Holly Springs, North Carolina. I also work on the Crystal Coast, in Atlantic Beach, Pine Knolls Shores, Emerald Isle and surrounding towns.
