I have been a professional portrait photographer since 2009; however, I have been shooting my entire life. When I was a 5 year old girl, my father gave me a broken Brownie Box Camera. I went door to door taking pictures for 25 cents, because I thought it was the coolest thing in the world to stop time. Unfortunately, my camera did not work and I had return all my quarters. I went on to pick up a camera in high school and from there my love affair with film began. I later graduated from the Arts Institute of Pittsburgh with a degree in Portraiture.
As a portrait artist, my greatest love is capturing the connections between people. The love we have for one another transcends from one lifetime to the next with every image. When I was 15 years old, my grandmother gave me a portrait of herself for Christmas. Little did I know how much that picture would mean to me one day. We lost her a year later to a Fibroid in her lungs. Today, her portrait is one of my most prized possessions and I was able to share her with my own children. Family is my highest value. I want the best for my family and yours.
