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 am the momma of two wild little boys, wife to an amazingly patient midwestern gent, a suburban farmer and chicken lady, a documentary photographer of lovers and families, a lover of coffee and poems and slow cozy mornings, and a total homebody.
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 coach creative womxn toward clarity, joy, and profit in their art and their lives, and co-host a podcast on Motherhood.
I’ve had lots of different jobs, and a few different careers, and so far as I can see, just one calling: helping others to see the magic and joy in their own lives. 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. If you’re looking for someone to help you savor those real, connected, unscripted moments, let’s chat!
