I have always loved a good story. Devouring books and films or listening to my grandfather's amazing adventures.
I trained as a writer and spent 10 years selling stories in advertising. The last twelve years I've been joyfully telling stories through photographs.
My approach to photography applies a fine art sensibility to the journalist’s eye for storytelling. I love crafting an arresting visual narrative and cherish the energy and magic of collaboration. Whether with subject, client, or other artists - projects are richer and more rewarding when each person is given space to express their own unique viewpoint.
When not behind the camera, you can find me running in the woods, wrestling with my kids, or spinning a ridiculous yarn for anyone who will listen.
My clients include The Ritz Carlton, SAP, GlaxoSmithKlein, Callaway Golf, and Jean Michele Cousteau.
I grew up on a farm in northern Maine where I spent an unusual amount of time sitting in mud puddles and ran away from home on a regular basis, just never long enough for anyone to notice. I read stacks of books while perched in trees or hiding under the porch, but my favorite escape was the roof.
A lapse in judgment led me to a degree in economics. After a brief stint in the corporate world, when it became clear a change was in order, I went back to school and got a degree in education. And then I had kids—three girls who are my world.
I began photographing my daughters as a way to document the uninhibited things kids do. When I'm doing it right, photography brings me back to the rawness of my own childhood. The images I truly love creating are the ones that capture reality and celebrate quirk.
