My goal with my photography is amplifying natural moments and adding a burst of color to the scene! Subtle beauty in everyday moments drive my work and I hope to capture the most authentic and real parts of those in front of me. I enjoy being challenged and problem solving when light is dim or a space isn't as colorful or scenic as we imagined. I've learned over the years that I sometimes get my best shots in the least likely places so it's more a matter of expanding my eye than my space or gear (though these things sure do help). I began shooting in high school and have kept it up over the years ever so sporadically - between my professional career as a clinician. I have also taken several classes in portraiture, digital technique, and still life through The Museum of Fine Arts in SLC, The School of Visual Arts in NYC, and the New England School of Photography in Boston.

Since starting a life and family in Boston these past few years, I have dedicated more time and focus to photography. Photographing the same couple or family over different stages of their lives has been a true highlight these past few years as I get to build relationships and freeze the changes through my work. In most recent years, I have gravitated to capturing more families and love indulging in my playful side when engaging with kids.  
 
As with my clinical work, I don't necessarily want a "niche" clientele and have valued working with a diverse array of people over the years and adapting/mastering shooting in different settings. I have had the pleasure of shooting good friends' weddings in Big Sur and the Adirondacks, gay weddings on the Cape, Cambodian ceremonies, all rituals tied to Hindu and Muslim ceremonies, rustic/outdoor weddings in NH/VT, and all those that take place inside beautiful urban spaces (favorites have been the Boston Museum of Science and Providence Public Library).
 
In addition to being a photographer, I'm a clinical psychologist, licorice addict, sea kayaker, ceramist, indie film lover, Visions consultant, avid traveler, and a partner to an amazing man who also juggles multiple careers while we nurture our two adorable daughters. 

I firmly stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. It is my belief that it is our collective responsibility to confront systemic racism and other "isms" through personal and professional actions. Each year, I offer a limited number of pro bono and sliding scale sessions to black and historically excluded families who reside in affordable housing in Cambridge MA in addition to families with one or both parents working in public schools.
