I believe photos are magic. They hold space and they bring you back in time. One of my favorite photos ever taken is of my grandpa. I was seven in a farmhouse in Pennsylvania and he was trying to knock a can off my sister's head with a sponge. A simple moment during a typical Thanksgiving at the farm... yet, this moment... this feels magical because of it's power to help me to remember (Read about it here: What is your “why”? )
I am a New England girl living in Colorado with my husband, two daughters and one crazy dog. We like to spend our weekends playing in the mountains or on the river... or sometimes chasing down bluegrass. From June to October I spend a good junk of time chasing light with madly in LOVE, ADVENTUROUS and super FUN couples! I feel so lucky to do what I do.
I’ve always loved a good story. I studied Journalism in college. I spent hours at a time in a quiet darkroom at the University of New Hampshire printing photos of my friends and surroundings. After graduating from college, I left for Colorado. I told my parents I’d be back in six months… I’m still here.
After my daughter, Cassidy, was born I had a new reason to pick up the camera; and this time it was digital. Seeing how quickly my daughter was growing, I found a new story to tell. I discovered that the most honest photos were those that were not staged. There is a familiarity and attachment to the shots that I have of her in her first year. Seeing these photos brings out the memory of this sweet spot in life. Motherhood was new to me and the world was new to her. We both had a lot to learn.
Right after the birth of my second daughter, Sierra, I was leaving yoga and read the quote “what would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?” The answer was clear. Soon after, I quit my full time job and dedicated myself to turning my photography hobby into a career.
I'm so happy you've stumbled upon my work and I hope to have the opportunity to tell your story through my photography.
