Get to know the lady behind the lens:

After spending 10 years climbing the corporate ladder, I decided that life, as an independent photographer was better suited for my family and me. I live in Pittsburgh, PA with my husband and our 2 children, our 8-year-old son and 3-year-old-dughter. I credit my son for allowing me to discover my love for newborn photography. Although the corporate world might not have been my life-long calling, I continue to enjoy photographing people and products in both a studio environment and on location.


Additionally, as a self proclaimed "foodie" I enjoy styling, photographing, (and eating) pretty much any kind of food or beverage and hope to take on more of this type of work in the near future.


I have a deep passion and respect for the creative process and love bringing ideas to life! If you have a specific idea or saw something on Pinterest that you want to make a reality, I’m always ready for the challenge!


In addition to the technical part of the photographic process, I thoroughly enjoy prop shopping, set design, styling and developing the creative vision behind each photo shoot.


When I’m not working, you can usually find me hanging with my family, cooking, or getting in a run at the local park.
