My love for photography is fueled by an unwavering passion to tell stories through imagery. It’s important to me that the images I make speak beyond the obvious. This is why I shoot the way I do, moving away from the scripted sessions and perfectly posed portraits and towards a unique blend of lifestyle and documentary photojournalism.
I want to capture the true you; the you that doesn’t apologize for a messy toy room/kitchen/bedroom, the you that lets your kids dress themselves because individuality is important (and sometimes it’s just not worth the battle). I want the you who embraces the beautiful chaos of the now.
I don’t ever want to tell you to “look at the camera,” or try to recreate a photo from Pinterest, or ask you to stop what you’re doing so I can pose you in a hundred different ways to get the perfect shot. Because, guess what? Perfect is boring, and perfect is fake and I don’t want to fake it….EVER.
I want you to be able to look back on your pictures and remember all of it: the sticky faces and mismatched socks, the marker on the walls, the tutu on the dog and those in between moments of deep belly laughter, wistful glances and shining moments that might have been forgotten in a sea of other memories.
Want to know a little bit more about me? I enjoy strong coffee, being wildly inappropriate, contagious laughter and tater tots (but not necessarily in that order).
I have a slight font addiction and a serious fascination with sharks. I am a salty New Englander and believe my own story should start and end at the ocean. I am moved by live music, handwritten notes and a properly strung sentence. I am very afraid of clowns and animals dressed as people.
Family is the most important thing in the world to me and is truly the driving force behind what I do.
I am a contributing photographer for The Magic Hour Foundation -a non profit that pairs those in the fight against cancer with professional photographers for a free photo session, as well as an Ambassador for Spectrum Inspired, an organization that connects families touched by Autism to professional photographers who have a true passion for celebrating every child’s unique spirit. You can also find my stock photography images at Shutterstock and Unsplash.
These one hour sessions can take place in your home or at a location of your choosing.
We’ll spend the first 15 minutes or so making a relaxed family portrait, and the rest of the session will be devoted to capturing your family life as it unfolds in front of my camera (whether we head to the beach, playground, out for ice cream, or just hang at home). These sessions are all about moments over poses so there will be minimal direction from me, and a whole lot of fun for you.
Your session includes:
These sessions are the heart and soul of what I do. They are about capturing who you really are as a family. The first 15 minutes can be dedicated to making a relaxed family portrait, but that’s where the direction and scripted photos end and the true storytelling begins. Since we’ll have more time together, we get to dive deeper into the authentic moments and relationships that weave their way in and out of your daily lives.
Choose from either a 3 hour session or a 6 hour session.
