“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
I feel so blessed that I have been able to follow my passion as a photographer and have had so many wonderful opportunities throughout the years.
I graduated from the College of Notre Dame of Maryland with a Bachelors of Arts Degree with a concentration in photography. After college I was a photojournalist for The Aegis Newspaper for several years and loved every moment. I also freelanced for other publications. In February 2013 I became a newborn and family photographer at Bitsy Baby Studios. Not long after I left to begin my own business and focus on my family.
I love photography, but what I love most about my career is meeting so many amazing families, getting to know them and watching them grow year after year. I pride myself on creating a custom photography experience that you will enjoy, and in the end, leave you with memories and keepsakes that you can cherish for a lifetime.
Random things about me...I am a small town girl with big dreams. I love slow mornings, coffee, dance parties with my little ones, fall, beach days, New York, everything Christmas and time with my children, family and friends.
Just when you think you know love, someone brand new, so little and precious comes along and the love is instant. There truly is no love like the love you have for your child. The newborn days are so fleeting. Newborns are only little for so long and I love capturing those first few days and weeks. The tiny toes, little fingers, the way they curl up and just how perfectly they fit in your arms. These are truly moments you will want to capture. Moments to cherish. I offer lifestyle and posed newborn sessions.
With every family session, I set out to capture the personality of your child and the relationship you share as a family. I love capturing the playful smiles, laughter, silly faces, shy glances, mischievous grins and serious gazes that makes your child him/her. Children have so much personality and parents have so much warmth and love for their children…that is what I want to capture for you, all the details. I want to capture heart, connection and love!
A child's first year has so many milestones and each of them are worth capturing. The saying the days are long, but the years are short is a very true statement. The first year with your little one could be the fastest. I offer Newborn, three months, six months and one year sessions. There is something so special about capturing each of these.
Maternity photographs capture a wondrous stage in a woman's life. I want you to look back at your maternity photos and see beauty. I want you to see a miracle. I want you to remember how you felt. I want these photographs to bring back the feeling of those tiny kicks, the little movements, the feeling you got when you saw your baby in a sonogram. I want you to cherish these photographs and be thankful you had them done.
I just adore engagement sessions. There is just something about capturing two people so in love ready to start a lifetime together. I want your session to represent you as a couple down to every last detail. I want to capture the love, the silliness, the passion and the romance. I want to capture elegance through simplicity. I want you to look back at these and be able to feel everything you felt during this special time.
