What drives my interest in photography is finding genuine emotion- all of it- the ecstasy, the loneliness, the apprehension, the silliness, the nameless surge of feelings that well up in your chest when you look at a scene. It is not so unlike the experience of working in the emergency room or in transplant, both of which I had.
I travel widely and specialize in two genres- classical music performance and wedding photography. I am forever exploring, forever searching for the next moment.
I’m in CT but travel widely with my husband who is a musician about 100-150 days of the year.
I began my business in 2022, but have also been working with a destination wedding studio since 2018. I have photographed a few dozen as the main photographer.
My style is vivid with true-to-life colors. I would say that I mostly document what I see in a journalistic way and will direct posing for formal portraits. For candids, I take a lot of inspiration from street photography, where I watch a scene unfold and anticipate when people will come together for amazing reactions.
I’m very easy-going and adaptably outgoing or inobstrusive depending on the situation. I am used to photographing with a completely silent shutter from my experience as a classical music photographer.
In my spare time, I love to play in chamber music groups and freelance as a violinist in local groups.
