I love what I do and I do it with passion.

 

About Me

A visual storyteller and photographer with a penchant for connecting to the people and the world around me

About:

I was introduced to photography in high school by the gifted and incredibly-talented photography teacher, Jon Gilbert Fox. Shortly thereafter he left teaching to pursue his own photography career. Jon broke down all the elements of photography: the camera, composition, the history of photography, lighting, etc.

I graduated from Western Maryland College with a degree in fine art with a focus on portraiture. Although I had a variety of careers and interests including painting a variety of portraits, hand-painting clothing, framing valuable works of art, making signs, graphic design, painting furniture, videography, professional photographic retouching and by far, my all-time love, photography.

I’m still painting, but now I’ve traded my brush for my camera. The nuances of painting with light and shadow captivate me. I enjoy creating an atmosphere of trust and ease and connecting with my subjects to help them be more natural thus contributing to the creative process to capture genuine moments in time.

I am grateful for all that I have learned and continue to learn from Sue Bryce, Jerry Ghionis and Roberto Valenzuela, my brilliant mentors and absolute favorite contemporary photographers and teachers. Their work is dynamic, exciting and extraordinary; it’s changed the way I look at my life and photography. I invite you to visit their websites by clicking on each name.

About ten years ago a friend brought me to my first yoga class at Sanctuary Studios of Plymouth Massachusetts. That was it for me, I was hooked. I studied with Michelle Fleming and now have my 200 hour yoga teacher training certificate. I never really realized yoga teacher training could advance my photography until I began see the benefits. Not only did it help me be more sensitive to my subjects but it also helped me with posing someone from the ground up, how to be mindful of my body as I work and how to bring that sense of calmness and joy to my clients. Giving back is an important to me. I may have made a difference in the world. I found my special place to volunteer in Marshfield at the Magical Moon Foundation run by the warrior Donna Green. The Moon began as a place for children with brain tumors and has blossomed into so much more. Please take a peek at my blog to learn a bit more.x When I don’t have my camera in front of me, I might be walking my dog, paddle boarding or kayaking, playing with my neighbors, watching the Patriots with my family or taking deep breaths at Dragonfly Yoga in Marshfield.

What I Do

Simply put, I love portrait photography.  Everyone deserves a beautiful image of themselves.    I offer a variety of genres from glamour to sports.  Everything I photograph is a portrait whether it is in a studio, on the beach or a turf field.
