Getting to know me isn't too hard. I'll tell you what I think, even though sometimes it's not what you want to hear. I believe honesty is more important than sugar coating things. With that in mind... I love Justin Timberlake, green, beaches, and I have a sweet tooth!
(wedding cake? Yes, please!)
I've lived in Central Florida and Austin, Texas but I was born and raised in Maine. The furthest I've ever traveled was to Oahu, Hawaii for a wedding whilst 7 months pregnant!
Maine is where I fell in love with photographing destination weddings. From California, Tennessee, Maryland, and beyond couples find a little place of Maine to start their lives together and it's so amazing to be a part of the wedding day!
I love a good pun as much as the next guy.
Sometimes song lyrics pop in my head when I'm photographing.
Witnessing so many wonderful memories in other people's lives fills me with joy. Being able to freeze time and forever change the legacy of these people is so humbling and inspiring. After I lost my mother and grandmother at a young age I realized just how important photos are to future generations. Preserving your legacy, creating art about you is my mission.
My kids will never know their grandmother but I can tell them her story and what photos I do have help immensely.
I am readily available to work in Maine but I would be interested in traveling any where in the world.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my blogsite and I look forward to hearing from you!

A moment, a day, a life - frozen in time. The way she smiles and the way she dressed. Memories I've lost within, but are now tangible reminders of her legacy.
Thank you, photography, for pushing me to see the beauty in every day. Forcing light and shadow- the world is a work of art. Appreciating my surroundings, time, weather, and axis of the earth so much more because of you.
