images of love and life

I live in Portland, Maine with my husband – best friend – second shooter Matt and our cat, Dinah. We travel whenever we can, hang out in our garden, and snuggle on couches with books — and take photos. We love small weddings and big personalities, unique events with lots of character. Coastal ceremonies & woodsy weddings, flower crowns and big old barns, natural light, big windows and industrial spaces. We love to travel – and do so often so wherever your fabulous event my be, whether on the top of a mountain, in your parents backyard or on a rooftop somewhere – we would love to hear about it.

I have always known that I wanted a big yellow house, apple trees in the yard and to make pictures for a living… while I am still working on the big house and the apple trees – making pictures is most certainly what I do and for that I am eternally grateful.

When I was 15 or so I found my grandmother’s 1945 medium format film camera deep in a closet in my parents house. To my delight I found that there was exposed film still in it. My grandmother had recently passed away and here were photos that she had taken and never even seen herself. I nervously developed the film to find photos of my father and his brothers some 40 years ago, half ghosted and colors faded, forever children playing on front steps of their house. My work has always been rooted in a love of memory and a desire to create something more intimate than documentation.

Our pictures are our personal history, our connection to what was, where we have been & to the people we love most.

Drop me a line

I would love to hear about you.
Talk to you soon!
