About Me

When I was 15, I took my first photography class. My first camera was old and beat up, but it opened up a world of wonder, fun and magic— I was hooked.

I was lucky enough to grow up in Kodak's backyard, so my high school offered classes in photography that included an extensive dark room. I loved the darkroom so much that I spent hours developing film and printing pictures. After high school, my time at Boston College was much the same: I spent my weekends taking portraits of anyone who would allow it and then spent my weeknights in the darkroom processing those images. I always had my camera, and I now have thousands of images to look back on and remember all the fun times and amazing people I’ve known. 

On a more formal note, most recently, I have completed the photography curriculum, concentrating in portrait photography, from the NY Institute of Photography.  This allowed me to further hone my skills in portraiture.

I am now fortunate to be able to turn my passion into a part-time career.  My focus is on head shots.  My style is creating images with beautiful, bright, clean light. I prefer to pose my subjects looking right into the camera which creates sparkle in their eyes. I then work on an expression that shows the soul of the person.  I strive to capture natural images of people that truly reflect their individuality and identity.
