I was born and raised in Massachusetts and lived there my entire life until about 2018 when my husband and I moved to Virginia Beach. He was in the military and that where they sent us to make a new home. I loved Virginia. I loved the freeing feeling of starting over, exploring somewhere new and meeting new people. 

I actually started my business while in Virginia. It was such an amazing place to start this journey. I had the chance to work with so many amazing creatives and truly build my company to what it is today. 

I'm now back in Massachusetts as our time with the military has ended. We're starting a new season of life and I'm so excited to capture new love stories right here in New England.

I love meeting new people and I've always been extremely creative. This career has brought out the best in me and I'm so thankful for that. When I'm not capturing love stories, I 'm typically  cuddled up on the couch with my husband and  pups. I am a huge dog lover and our pups, Mookie and Charlie, are basically our children. I love the beach, checking out new breweries, a girls night and even just binge watching Netflix. 

I grew up battling anxiety and panic disorder and finally learned how to manage and live my life to the fullest in my mid twenties.  Raising awareness and helping others in their battle against mental health is now so important to me. 

There's so much more to know about me but I hope that's something you'll learn while working with me.
