It has been 16 years since I left corporate world behind to pursue my love for photography. I got my first camera when I was 14 years old and always loved taking pictures of people and capturing life as it was happening. Everyone thought I was crazy leaving a successful career in telecommunications for this dream of mine. I packed up my cat Zoe and my apartment in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania and moved to Turners Falls, Massachusetts to attend the Hallmark Institute of Photography. I have always said that the year at Hallmark was the best year of my life. Doing something I truly loved brought a sense of peace and fulfillment into my life.
Since starting my business in 1998, it has continued to be a source of joy. Over the past 15 years, I have had hundreds of portrait sessions, chased around a lot of 2 year old children, sang a lot of songs, wore out a few favorite puppets and toys and documented the lives of so many people! Throughout the years I am reminded of the impact all of these clients have had on my life. Not only have they become good friends, but I have been fortunate enough to be a part of their lives and memories. Many of the children I started photographing in 1998 have graduated from high school over the past couple years. Every time I photograph them for their high school senior portraits, I realize how wonderful it has been to watch these children grow up through the years. More than anything, I appreciate that my clients trust me to document the memories of those important moments in their children’s lives.
I just want to say thanks to all of those that have allowed me to do something I LOVE over the past 15 years!
