I've been interested in photography since the day I was able to hold a camera. My dad gifted me and my brothers disposable cameras at a young age. My family likes to kid about the fact that I somehow ended up with all three of them. With a stash of Walgreens disposable cameras at the age of 6, I was ready to take on the world. After high school I found myself getting into Fine Arts, and studied at Parsons in the big apple for a short time before ultimately following my heart back to photography and wide open spaces.
Falling in love with the art of photography again as an adult, I became enamored with the storytelling aspect of the job. Seeing the way my couples gaze at each other when the other isn’t looking, the natural chemistry & ease between the two, and the little moments only an outsider can pick up on, quickly made me realize what it is I loved about this kind of career.
In my school years I was always known as the outcast, the quiet girl with “Resting Bitch Face”, though if you really knew me I was always actually very kind, ambitious, and down to earth. Eventually I found myself experimenting with Fine Art as I went to college in NYC, which helped pave the way for me to break out of my shell. With some trials in the Fine Arts, I made my way back home to rural Connecticut and into couples photography. Something about this kind of photography finally gave me a voice. I started to forge my own path as a photographer and quickly realized I was never alone after all. Telling others’ stories through photography is something that allowed me to spread my wings from a quiet, nervous girl, to the excited and confident woman behind the lens that my clients know today.
Sharing my story with my clients is important so they feel comfortable around me, someone who’s been there first-hand. I know what it feels like to be out of your element; unsure and timid. Helping you to find your comfort in front of my lens is just as important as it is for me behind it.
My passion is photography, as you probably could've guessed. Though when I’m not behind the lens, some other things I love to do to fuel my creativity include traveling, hanging out with my pups, and endlessly drinking coffee. My favorite little moments are driving around at golden hour, windows down in my truck, blasting country music (you can maybe even spot my pup, Jax, with his head out of the back window and goggles strapped on LOL).
I love to hit local breweries with my friends, garden, and DIY errythang (Chip & Joanna are my couple goals). Find me (or don’t) in the woods, mountains, or anywhere else I can escape to get a little taste of what the world has to offer on my days off. When I’m lucky enough to travel for work I’m reminded what a thirst I have for adventure, there’s just so much in this world to see and experience. Each time I travel to a new destination, my soul craves more! I’m a girl who takes no day for granted and finds romanticism in the overlooked, everyday moments.
