First stop…

Happy Sunday everyone! Your CT based photographer has become a traveling one & my first stop is #AtlantaGA ! Zac & I drove down last weekend (15 hours! 😱) & after a week of getting things together we’re nicely settled into our new apartment & have gotten out to explore our new neighborhood. We’ll be here through the beginning of August, maybe longer if we don’t want to leave! So if anyone here in #Atlanta is looking for a photographer or knows of any great spots around the city be sure to send me a message! 📨📸


Kindle my heart

Getting ready for work this morning the glow of the sun through the frost on my window caught my attention in my peripherals.  The moment I turned to look the words to “Kindle My Heart” immediately came to mind and the melody quickly melted away the chance of any potential frustrations of the day.  I hope this kindles your heart as it did mine.



To Kindle Your Heart

Thank you

Thank you, Peg, for being a beautiful person inside & out for 99 wonderful years and for making me baby cheesecakes and watching The Lion King with me more times than I can count on two hands.  I love you and thank my lucky stars that I was able to celebrate your 99th birthday by your side!


Thank you, Google, for creating the pixel 3 and allowing me to beautifully capture this happy moment when I didn’t have my camera with me.

An idea, a passion, a love…

The moment I became so swept up & fell head over heels for photography I do not quite recall.  I only am aware that when I did I loved it with my whole heart.  “All I want is this idea in my mind, forever building momentum” are words that I have carried with me for a very long time.  Having a concept & nurturing it to grow, maybe into something that you couldn’t see before, I find to be a very beautiful thing.  Years ago I didn’t think that I would follow photography as anything more than a hobby but yet here I am pouring myself into a wonderful world of art that I wasn’t sure I could be a part of or even wanted to.

I grow just as anything grows, with new understanding from gathered experiences carrying a heart full of passion & a brain full of ideas.  I am pleased & excited to share with you my work thus far as well as the many adventures ahead of me.  Connecticut based I am available for portraits, weddings, events, family, fashion, pets, & senior photos.

Special occasion or no occasion, I am more than happy to capture those memories for you!
