I am a Mother, a Wife and an Artist. I love each hat I wear equally. They each teach me something new every day, and what I learn I like to bring into my work.
I struggle and dig deep everyday for what makes me happy with my art. I actually crave (in a weird way) the struggle of keeping my mind feeling creative and heart filled with joy from my work. I want to constantly create & feel the rush of seeing an image perfectly depict a moment or intimate detail that only those in the image experienced but now is tangible and felt just by viewing it.
I grew up following my Father’s lead of being the picture taker in the family. I loved carrying around a camera and being able to capture all our memories. My decision to go to school for Photography was greeting with lots of support from my family and Im so thankful for that, I graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology in 2003 and opened a studio in a small town outside of Philadelphia. Life brought me to Colorado, my new home and my lovely career as a full time photographer specializing in new life and parenthood.
I am a dream catcher, not only in my personal approach to life but in my professional world of creating images as well. I live for catching moments that disappear all too quickly, for somehow capturing a moment that only those involved actually felt, unaware that others saw it. Small tangible details that I first see through my lens, then get to see again when editing is what excites me. This is why I make photographs. I’ve really only begun to find my voice and I think that my daughter helps bring this emotive and nostalgic side out in me. I see me in her. When I see her joys and remember my own growing up, it makes me feel what I am seeing through my camera. I want others to see it as well.
