I am so happy to tell you a little bit more about myself and my origin story of becoming a professional photographer. I first discovered my affection for photography while attending the White Mountain School, in the beautiful town of Bethlehem, NH. With the help of a talented photography teacher, I was able to understand the importance of not only the technical part of taking a photo but also being aware of the feeling a photo creates once captured. I feel every great photo has its own tale to tell, and I hope to evoke those feelings upon the viewer with my work.
After high school I put my passion for photography on the back burner of life, as I became more focused on my other love, working with children. Throughout college, I worked diligently to become a teacher and mentor for students and parents. After graduating from the University of New Hampshire, I taught early childhood education for ten years in the public school systems spreading my time between New Hampshire, Wyoming, and Vermont classrooms, all while starting up my small photography business as a part-time passion project.
Now, I have entered into a new chapter in my life as a stay-at-home-mom for my two amazing daughters in the gorgeous Green Mountains of Vermont. With the loving support of my husband and girls, I have been able to prioritize my professional photography goals and have begun to build my passion project into a thriving photography business. I am so excited about this new beginning, as it is giving me the ability to focus on the two things I love most in this world; my family and my photography.
As for what to expect while working with me? Plan for lots of fun, plenty of laughing, and for me to fall in love with your life's story. Not only do I take professionalism very seriously, but I also take getting to know my clients and putting them at ease, just as seriously. I find by learning more about each and every one of my clients, I am better able to capture their true spirits during our time together.
If you are looking to know more feel free to contact me at any time! I look forward to meeting you and learning about your unique story.
