I started my photography business while living in Southern Connecticut, and moved to Portland, Maine in the fall of 2014 where I spent years of my time enjoying the coast from Kennebunkport to Northeast Harbor; with deep family roots throughout the islands of Acadia National Park. Although I am often found traveling the country and even internationally for the families I work with, it's the crashing Atlantic waves on the grey toned beaches of rock, and the salty, fog filled skies that will always be home to me.
I am now based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania- and I can often be found traveling throughout the Northeast and along the coast of Maine for my clients. My signature work is at home newborn photography on black & white film. Please inquire to learn more about booking your session.
I photograph the expecting mother who, like myself, values the beautiful simplicity that creates classic art. I create portraits to be framed in her home for generations, where years from now she will lean in and whisper to her youngest, "I was carrying you inside of me when this photograph was taken."
And her daughter will smile and say, "Tell me the story again...the one where you felt me kick for the first time."
I photograph parents welcoming little ones into their homes and lives in a style that is intentionally intimate and emotionally moving. Photographing parents with their newborn children, most often in their own home, is one of my life's greatest honors.
I believe that the awe and wonder of two people as they hold their very world in their hands is the most beautiful art. My newborn portrait work is entirely focused on the connection between parent and child, and babies are never placed in anything but their arms.
My family portraits are created to be adored for generations. Far surpassing the purpose of an annual holiday card- my family portraits go deeper to capture the irreplaceable moments, the ever fleeting seasons of life together, and the grounding story that your gift of family was always more than enough.
