My love for photography started when I was very young, and I was always blessed with a clear knowledge that it was what I would do for a profession. I graduated from Hallmark institute of photography in 2002 and have been photographing professionally ever since.
I have been a professional in the industry for over a decade and I’m constantly thriving and educating myself to improve my craft daily. I worked for a high volume senior portrait studio for about 11 years while photographing weddings and newborn's in RI.
After I found out I was pregnant with my first child (2011), I knew it was time for a lifestyle change. My focus was moved from having fun and enjoying single life to supporting my family.
I left a sure thing and a high ranking position at the high volume studio and focused on my daughter and my business. This was a gamble; however, I knew seeing my little girl for a whopping 4 hours of awake time a day wasn't going to cut it. Something had to give!
In 2013 I was blessed with not only the birth of my second; Asher but I married the best guy I’ve ever known. Now that my family is complete (having 2 so close together is a challenge!) I'm still thriving to find a balance between work, and time with my children. The best way to reach me is email (firstname.lastname@example.org), I return phone calls when I am at the office or during nap time.
Having a mother’s perspective sure has changed the way I feel about photographing babies. The memories I get to create for families and the details I am able to preserve are priceless. I really have a cool job; I can't fathom what else I would ever do.
I will be honest I am horrible about returning phone calls as I listen to the messages then get distracted by life , usually the kids at home then I get to the office and forget all about a phone call... Email is usually the BEST way to reach me.
My wedding work has been published in RI engaged as well as the Providence Journal. My newborn photography has been published in Newborn magazine, and Best newborn photographers. I've placed in national image competitions, both in the private market (LTNSS) and with PPA.
I've photographed both president Bush and Obama (it was a pretty cool experience to be closer than the other media). I am also a member of (PPA) Professional Photographers of America, and a board member (PPARI) Professional photographers of Rhode Island, I recently joined the board at (PPANE) Professional Photographers Association of New England. I recently won the Warwick Award for "Best newborn Photographer". I have also photographed commercial work which has been published in : Road King magazine as well as Dance Retailer News.
