I grew up surrounded by photographs. I spent hours looking at my parents’ and grandparents’ photo albums, and would get lost in the images. I wondered about the people they used to be, and about the people surrounding them that I never had the chance to meet. Each photograph told a story that seemed intimate and important. I think those images are part of the reason I became a photographer.
Weddings that feel genuine to the couple and are packed with emotions are my favorite – tears get me every time. My favorite venues tend to be homes that have been in a family for generations. I love witnessing another moment in the story of a family, in a place where so much history has already been seen. Emotions of all sorts catch my attention, and a smile is usually stuck on my face the whole time I’m working.
I grew up on a lake in New Jersey. It’s the place where I learned to daydream and to notice smaller, quiet moments. My absolute favorite place to be is standing on “my” rock, a few feet away from the dock, with the water up to my chin – staring out at the lake. That’s the place that makes me feel the most like me.
I currently live in the Boston area with my husband, Peter. I’m lucky to have my brother close by as well. We enjoy calling New England our home, but love to travel and will gladly go anywhere in the country or world if asked. Ask us!
