For as long as I can remember, I’ve felt most at home when I was creating art. I fell in love with photography when I realized I could create art out of the moments that were already happening around me. When I was 13, I started bringing my little point-and-shoot camera to concerts and snapping photos of my favorite emo bands (it’s definitely not a phase). It sounds kind of silly, I know, but that was how I discovered how much I loved capturing people in their element. 

Fast forward a bit...I've now been proudly and enthusiastically been working as a professional photographer for nearly five years. I graduated with my BFA in photography in 2018, and since then, I've had the pleasure of planning and shooting hundreds of creative, empowering portrait sessions for people from all walks of life. I've also gotten to photograph many gorgeous weddings all over New England. I've found that wedding & boudoir photography allow me to form the best connections with people, and give me the best opportunity to do what I love most—boosting your confidence! My brand is all about bringing out your best qualities and helping you see yourself as a true work of art—beautiful, unique & irreplaceable. If you don’t instantly feel 10x better about yourself after viewing your images, I haven’t done my job well enough.
 
If you love expressing your personality in creative ways (tattoos, anyone?), or find my cat Moo (pictured below) even half as adorable as I do, we might just be the perfect fit for each other. Now, go check out my portfolio and see the kind of images I want to create for YOU!

I've got three! This is Moo, the most photogenic of the bunch. (One of these days, I'll get them to sit next to each other long enough to get a group picture.)

MY CATS

That's me & my partner Fiona, doing what we do best together—being our goofy selves.

When I'm not taking photos, you can most likely find me singing. Well, I mean, I totally sing while I'm taking photos too, but I'm also a vocalist in a local rock band!
