I launched my photography business in 2009 after I graduated from the Corcoran College of Art + Design in Washington, DC with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Fine Art Photography. While my time in the big city was an experience I'll never forget, I couldn't deny the pull to return to the beautiful little island nestled in the heart of the Chesapeake Bay where I was raised. I believe the root of my passion for documenting life's moments lies in the idyllic landscape of my childhood home.
It's a quaint fisherman's village of weathered old docks, work boats, and high tides, and it's where I learned to appreciate the little details of the everyday and embrace my undying love for the water. My island inspires me beyond measure. It's where I go to spark the creative spirit, and filter out all the noise. Taking cues from nature, I strive to incorporate natural light and beauty into all of my work, letting my photos speak for themselves. We all gravitate to what moves us and what makes us feel at home. I want all of my clients to feel like old friends sharing a glass of sweet tea on the porch, looking out over the bay. Most importantly, I want them to feel called back to the memories I've captured long after those moments have passed.
