Many decades from now when I close my eyes on this crazy, gorgeous adventure of life, I want to remember in my deepest bones what it felt like to be fully alive.
I’m a momma (to two little boys who have my entire heart), wife to an amazingly patient midwestern gent, a lover of coffee (possibly addicted?), running, ponies, Rilke and Rumi, dogs, kindness, chickens, and ice cream. Specifically black raspberry with dark chocolate chips. I was born and raised in Philadelphia and started shooting on a Polaroid Cool Cam in 1988. I believe that Black lives matter, and that Love is for everyone. I celebrate and welcome people, partners, and families of all kinds, colors, religions, and abilities in all of my work.
I do a few other fun things too – like co-host a podcast on Motherhood, and coach creative entrepreneurs and small businesses toward clarity, joy, and profit. I’ve had lots of different jobs, and a few different careers, and at least for now, one calling: helping others to see the magic and joy in their own lives through my images. I took a long, adventurous, very winding road to discover how much my heart beats for the simple and the true – the kinds of stories that unfold in our lives every day, that we savor the best for years afterward because they feel like our truest selves.
I want the images we capture of your life and your loves to remind you what it felt like to be alive together in those moments.
I love working with families and couples to savor the big stories and all the little truths in between – from the anticipation and excitement of your engagement session to the arrival of a new little one. I work with brands and small business owners too, capturing the essence of who you are, what you do, and why you do it – with the same simple, intimate, candid approach I use for my work with families and couples. If you’re looking for a photographer to capture something posed, I’m probably not the one for you. If you’re looking for someone to help you savor those real, connected, take-your-breath-away-at-their-simple-loveliness moments, let’s chat!
