About Me

I studied Graphic Design, Marketing and Photography at Robert Morris University. I have been using a trusty Nikon since 2009 when I started my photography career. I have three kiddos and a smelly dog. I love modern design with vintage flair, black and white movies and I have a crush on Audrey Hepburn. I am an artist. I run on coffee. I love cheese. Oh and bacon.

MY PHILOSOPHY

I want you to take a breath and be yourselves while I capture honest, spontaneous, and beautiful images. I have a minimalist style and down to earth approach. You are the most important part of the images, not props. I am a perfect blend of fun-loving and professional and take more of an artistic approach and less posed.
I believe that family photos are the most important and the most fun. Let’s face it, kids grow fast and those faces change every year… freeze time the best way possible. Lifestyle sessions in the home, or get dressed up and get outside.. either way, make sure you make time to capture your family “now”.


“I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong.
                I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls.
I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles.”
                                                                                     Audrey Hepburn
