PHOTOGRAPHER | ARTIST | NURSE | MOMMA
Hi there, Thanks so much for your interest in my work, I truly love everything about newborns and love having the opportunity to capture this fleeting moment for you to cherish forever. As with all photographers, I have always loved taking pictures. I became a professional photographer with the sole purpose of specializing in newborn portraiture, and it's all I do (well in order to make my newborn clients happy I also do 6 month and 1 year sessions). My photography journey started in 2011 with newborn sessions for friends and lots of free craigslist sessions (yikes). I moved into my first studio space, shared with another photographer, in mid 2012....and the rest is history. I've been honing and perfecting my craft ever since and though I am primarily self taught, I've mentored with and taken newborn portrait workshops with the ABSOLUTE BEST in the business. I am blessed to absolutely love what I do. In addition to photography I'm also an ER nurse and have been since a year after I graduated from nursing school in 2000. I love everything about it and am so blessed to be able to have the best of both worlds and truly do what I love.
I live in Eastern Connecticut with my husband, our youngest kiddo, 2 fur babes and a bird. Our 2 "big kids" are out on their own. My children are my absolute greatest love in life and I am so blessed to be their momma (my hubs isn't so bad either!).
a few random tidbits about me:
I'm a self taught
Nikon Canon girl. (gasp...yep I made the switch and LOVE it)
I love craigslist, etsy and shopping in general (much to my husbands dismay)
I love to travel but hate to fly
My husband and I have been together since we were 16, teenage sweethearts <3
I love animals and foster rescue dogs and often bring them home without telling my husband lol....once bringing 5 puppies home and sending him a picture of them in the car when we were already on our way home. (He says I'm lucky he loves me lol)
I wish I could knit but I don't have the patience for it. I'm all about instant gratification
I love music and can't clean my house without it blasting, it helps me focus.
I LOVE snuggling newborns....duh
My whole life, all of my accomplishments and everything I aspire to be is dedicated to my grandfather who was the greatest man I have ever known, without him I wouldn't be half the person I am today. always in my heart, never far from my thoughts <3
Have a question for me? Ask away.....
