I began my photography journey as a new mom. Struggling with postpartum anxiety, I picked up my camera as a form of therapy and it illuminated all the light and love around me that I felt blind to. Sharing my story with other moms made me realize how prevalent these feelings are and how powerful photography can be. I started photographing other families so they too could embrace their own love stories and bask in it’s light daily. My walls are full of wall art telling my family’s story. Photography not only helped me learn mindfulness, gratitude and confidence, but it’s benefited my children in far more ways than I ever imagined. This is the reason I’m so passionate about wall art and the print movement. Our stories are too precious to be trapped in the digital world.
Almost a decade later and I have my own studio in northeast Ithaca with both indoor and outdoor shooting spaces where I photograph families, children and newborns. I pick up my camera every single day either for personal projects or client work. Photographs are one of those rare things that continually grow in value over time.
This year I’ve started teaching and mentoring more. It’s the perfect intersection of my career as a teacher and my passion as a photographer. Whether you’re looking to take better photographs, stoke a creative passion of your own or start your own business, I’m here to offer meaningful support, professional feedback and experienced insight that I wished I’d had when I started this journey. You don’t have to do it alone.
