I have loved taking photos since the days of 110 cameras with those interesting rolls of film. I’m a self taught, natural light photographer currently living and working in the amazingly beautiful Newport, Rhode Island area.

I am a military wife, mama, beach and warm weather lover and former school social worker. I love to laugh and never, ever take myself too seriously. Life is too short. I feel blessed to have a nomadic life because it has brought me to places and introduced me to people that I never would have experienced otherwise.

My style of photography has been described as colorful, fun, quirky and real. I love bold colors, going off the beaten path and working with people who aren’t afraid to try something new, even if in the end it just gets us a laugh. My sessions have been described as “more fun than we imagined” and that’s the experience I want for all of those in front of my camera. My favorite photos are the ones not posed and those that might otherwise be deleted from the camera. That’s life and we can’t delete the spontaneity and the spunk!

    Are you back in the State? You took our son’s 1 year pictures and we’d love to book you again (if you have returned).
