I am a wife, a mother, a thinker, and doer. I am an outdoor girl at heart and mountains, oceans, trails and parks all call to me regardless of the weather. I suppose that’s why I why I prefer shooting in natural light. I feel comfortable outside – studying the light, the shadows…. the beauty in things big and small.
I also love the light that spills into our homes, illuminating our rooms with light and shadows. With both my clients and my personal work I relish an opportunity to capture something special within the walls we surround our family with.
Before taking my passionate hobby and turning it into my dream job, I worked for many years as a manager in accounting and corporate finance. I’m still an active CPA and love working with other photographers to help them get their businesses off the ground, to help them set up sustainable pricing, answer bookkeeping or tax questions, or to discuss areas for workflow improvement.
I love to capture honest photos, especially in black and white – photos that tell a story, that transport you….
Through my lens I long to freeze the precious moments of today so that they can be aged and savored in our tomorrow.
These are your moments. Let’s capture them together.
For families, couples and newborns the session fee is $300 and includes up to 2 hours of shooting time at the location of your choice – your home, the beach, a field. We will partner together to ensure we capture the essence of this time in your life, creating images that are honest, emotive and timeless. Session fee includes styling assistance to take the stress out of what to wear! Connection sessions are for up to 6 people – $50 per person for each additional person.
After your session you will have the opportunity to select one of my pre-curated collections that include beautiful heirloom artwork, prints and digital files. Clients typically invest between $400 and $2,000 in their artwork, prints and digital file collection. Please inquire for complete pricing and collection details.
Fine art motherhood session, just born sessions, and wedding packages also available. Please inquire for full details.
Forever A Client Special
Clients who have booked a full session within the past year may elect to purchase a family mini session for $450. Session includes 12 digital images with print release. Sessions are available mid-week only, and must be photographed at one of my 4 beautiful pre-selected location in the North Andover area.
What is Lifestyle
I am primarily a “lifestyle” photographer. Lifestyle photography is an approach to sessions in which I strive to capture your family very naturally and organically. We will do very little posing, but I will guide you and your children to ensure everyone is relaxed and having fun. When you are free to express yourself naturally, the result is an honest and timeless collection of images that truly represents your family and all that is unique and wonderful about you.
Where we will Shoot
I love to photograph outdoors – parks, beaches, nature conservatories, city streets….But I am also happy to come to your home if you would like to capture your family within your own personal environment. To save your the trouble or worry about picking the right location, I have carefully selected locations with each of these “looks” that offer optimal late day light. I have sample sessions I can share with you from each of these locations. Just let me know what you have in mind and we will find the perfect place! We will spend 1-2 hours together to ensure we capture wonderful, natural images of you and your family.
I am North Andover based, and I serve the Boston/Greater Boston area, Southern New Hampshire and Southern Maine. I am occasionally available for travel sessions, so please inquire.
When You Will Get Your Images
Within 2-3 days of our session I will provide you with a “sneak peek” from your session which will include 1-3 images. With your permission, I typically share this “sneak peek” through my Facebook page.
Within 2 weeks of our session I will provide you with a link to a private online gallery where you will be able to view all of your images (50+ images) After viewing your images, you may select the images you would like to include in your print/image package.
You can expect to receive your final images/prints approximately 2 weeks from when you make your selections.
Let’s work together to authentically capture the essence of your business. Through my artistic use of light and shadow, and my commitment to capturing authenic organic moments, we will create truly unique and captivating images for your marketing and promotional needs. Most commercial work is done on location, however, studio work is also available. Primarily natural light, with studio lighting as needed. You can view my commercial packages here.
As an artist, a business owner and a CPA, I offer a unique combination skills that can truly help you take your work and your business to the next level. From technical training to business coaching, I offer a wide range of mentoring and learning opportunities for photographers. You can view my one-on-one mentoring options here, and my workshop schedule here.
