I want your pictures to look like your memories.


I am a photographer and storyteller in the Boston area. I work with people who find humor and meaning in their everyday lives, and help them create pictures that evoke amazing memories. For those who open their lives to me, thank you! I believe in your story and the power it has to inspire and guide those who are close to you.

I have a knack for seeing people and photographing that spark inside them. My background in Sociology and Documentary Photography has me trained to observe, look for the nuance, and anticipate the moment. I have a sense of humor, especially when it comes to parenting, and I hope you do too!

I am mom to three boys. Each of them has his own unique spark that I admire and wonder at daily. I hope they will always see how wildly amazing they are through my eyes and my photographs. Years from now, I want them to recognize themselves in our photos, see that spark, and live it as confidently as they did when they were children.

I want to find that same light in each of you, and create photographs that make you proud of this beautiful life you're living. Together we can capture your story, and make pictures as authentic and intimate as your memories.
