When I was eight years old, I knew I wanted to become an artist. I lived in my own imagination, creating new worlds on paper, in crayon or paint, with words or with images. When I was fifteen, my father bought me my first camera and for the first time, I was able to really SEE.
I haven't looked back since.
I grew up in a quaint little town in NW Connecticut, close to the country and mountains, close to the sandy beach, close to New York City. I was surrounded by life and nature and music and trees and food and laughter and freedom and love. These are the things that shaped me. And these are the things that inspire me still.
Now, I'm living in Central Ohio with my incredible husband who recently retired from the Ohio National Guard after proudly and bravely serving two tours in Iraq, and our three gloriously talented and ridiculously smart children.
I'm a lifestyle photographer and I specialize in natural light portraiture and candid style wedding photography. I also create Fine Art images that are for sale in my Shop (link at top of the page).
I'm also a freelance writer. I write about all sorts of things like music reviews and commentary on current events. I also write some really bad poetry and boring fiction that no one will ever read.
