Photography is something I discovered in high school and found again in my second phase of college when I turned twenty-one and moved across the country from Cape Cod to Albuquerque, NM.
It was a true passion from the moment I discovered the power of imagery, and with that, photography became everything to me. I studied its history, and fell in love with its capability to create impactful beauty.
Following graduation, I worked at Kim Jew Photography in Albuquerque, where I learned to flatter people with light and pose. From there, I decided to venture off to NYC to start my career.
Once in New York, I worked with many creative photographers as an assistant, including for editorial/magazine shoots, weddings, and catalog studios.
I was then hired by famed fashion/celebrity photographer Michael Thompson, his talent seen on the covers of Allure and W, as well as many others. I had the privilege of being trusted as his studio manager for two years. During this time, I learned much about the celebrity/fashion world and modern aesthetic. It was an incredible experience.
In search of some peaceful living, I returned to Cape Cod, and have remained to build a business from my passion for the art of photography.
2015 will be my thirteenth summer photographing on the beaches of the Cape. As well, I have had my beautiful studio space in Yarmouthport since 2007.
I am also currently expanding my business in the winter months to include travel to both California and Florida.
I will be planning two annual trips to California, within the month of October and also late March / early April. During my time on the west coast, I will be available for commissioned portraits in both the greater Los Angeles and San Francisco Bay Area, based on demand.
I will also be in Florida during the first two weeks of March and will have availability on the east coast in the greater Miami area, as well as on the west coast from Longboat Key and south to Naples.
I hope that you will consider my work to document the lives of your family in a soulful, beautiful and timeless manner.
