Where is home? My family and I just purchased our forever home about three months ago in Thompson, CT. We are loving it!
How did your photography journey start? I actually started shooting senior pictures and friends kids in high school and a little in college. Then after college I pursued my degree in graphic design. It wasn’t until I was a stay at home mom for a few years that I picked up my camera again. Then when my youngest were about two years old, I started taking paying clients, which was just over 5 years ago now.
Where do you find your inspiration? Flowers, textured fabrics and dreamy sunlight…this time of year in particular is my most favorite for both the dreamy light and the monotone landscape.
How would you describe your photographic style? Bright, airy, natural and timeless
If you could go back and give yourself one piece of advice about photography what would it be? I’d tell myself to photograph more work that’s just for me. I find I always grow and learn most when I am shooting for myself. I guess probably because I can experiment and take more risks than during a client session.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Wow, well in 5 years I hope to still be doing children & family portrait work but also to be doing some commercial photography as well. I recently started shooting commercial work and really enjoy it.
Who do you admire in the photography industry and why? Mindy Harris of Pastel Photography is probably one of my most favorite photographers. I love her unique ability to create such a sense of love and connection between families and the overall softness and almost serenity in her images.
What is in your camera bag? I am a Canon girl all the way. I shoot with a Canon 5dM2 and a Canon classic 5D. (Yes, you read that right.) I only shoot primes – I use my 50mm 1.4, 135L, 100mm macro & 32mm – in that order.
