My kind of people are real, imperfect, quirky, and a little chaotic - just like ya girl! If you love to be a little silly, sweet, sassy, romantic, and have a GOOD TIME, then you'll feel right at home with me.
As a published Connecticut photographer (most recently in Connecticut Bride Magazine!), I'll take you from those initial feelings of awkwardness to feeling confident and connected to your loved one every. dang. time.
I bring real emotions out of you and so that your images are full of ALL the good feels. Be prepared to get weird! 👽
We have three small and wild humans that call me mama. When I'm not with clients, you can find my homebody self having kitchen dance parties while listening to 2000s pop punk and emo hits, binge watching the newest series obsession, volunteering at my church and drinking gallons of cold brew because mommin' ain't easy, y'all.
I didn't grow up with a camera in my hands like other photographers might have, but photos were always important to me. Not because I had a ton, but because there were never enough. I don't have a bunch of photos of my parents' childhood. I can recall one picture of my grandma on her wedding day. There just aren't enough photos.
Unfortunately, I didn't realize the importance of lifestyle and wedding photos until it was too late. I have a bunch of silly selfies with the people that mean the most to me, some of them have since passed on, but if I'm being honest, my husband and I didn't even have a professional wedding photographer at our wedding.
I don’t have:
Wedding photos that I cherish.
Beautiful memories of the day I got married.
Images that take me back to being young and in love.
Photos of me carrying three lives within my womb or their first moments earth side.
I had a friend who graciously grabbed some snapshots for us at our wedding, but they’re not displayed in my home. In fact, I’m not even sure where the album is.
We let the wedding process and planning be dictated by other people, and it was a day that should’ve felt exciting as we started our new life together, but it felt (and still feels) more somber than it does sweet.
I love my husband. I love the life we’ve built together. But I hate our wedding day.
I’m passionate about couples preserving their memories on their terms. My gift to you through the photography process is making you feel confident in yourself, and connected to the irreplaceable moments that matter most.
