I fell in love with photography at the age of 16 when my mother received a Canon SLR film camera for her birthday and I "acquired it." I haven't been able to put a camera down since. Capturing the life and breath of a moment has been my goal since I started. Whether it be a wedding, portrait, or fine art project, I try and capture what I feel, more than what I see.
I received my BFA in Photography from the College of Saint Rose, and started my business right out of college, but I didn't start to really grow as a photographer until I had three little inspirations of my own. Becoming a mother has been my life's greatest challenge, up to this point, and having to teach myself to slow down and pay attention has been a benefit to train my eye. I am excited to continue this journey and see my growth, not only as a photographer, but in all aspects of life.
