A little about me: I’m a wife to an amazing man who supports me completely with my hobby (and often works late building my various props and backdrops!). I am a mom to two young kiddos and two VERY furry golden retrievers. Giving birth to my two children is my greastest accomplishment and will always be my top priority. I live in Portland, Maine and couldn’t imagine living in a more beautiful state (even though the winters can be tough at times). I have always loved taking pictures and wanted to take it professional and finally made the jump in 2009.
As a child, my walls were constantly plastered with pictures torn out of magazines that were full of vibrant colors and the latest fashions. In fact, I decoupaged much of my furniture too with the pages of fashion magazines and catalogs. God love my parents for allowing me to ruin their walls and furniture. I swear it was for a good cause!
Today, I’m still obsessed with colors and fashion and how that translates into a stylized image. My love of working with children probably stems from the fact that I still often feel like one. I’ve always had a big imagination and this has helped me relate well to my subjects. To me, the combination of personality and unique style is what creates a dynamite image. There is nothing I enjoy more than bringing out a child’s true personality. My goal is to ensure your kids have a blast playing and posing in front of my camera and on my hand built sets and backdrops. I’m a firm believer that the kids need to have fun in order for me to capture their true personality. Because of all these reasons, my photography has evolved into a natural focus on newborns, babies and children. I look forward to meeting you and even more so having your kids come play at my studio!
