Hi there! I am so glad you decided to find out a little bit more about me... so what can I say?
I have always considered myself a creative soul. As a child and teen, I was always drawing, painting, or whatever else I could find to get my hands dirty. As for photography, although I always loved it as an art form, professionally, I stumbled into it in 2003 when I signed up for a photojournalism class on a whim while studying at Boston University. I immediately knew I was hooked - I fell in love with telling people's stories with my photos, declared it as my major and graduated with a degree in photojournalism.
After working on staff at daily newspapers for several years, I decided to take my photography in a different direction. Now, I focus my work on capturing the special moments in my clients' lives - and wouldn't have it any other way.
Aside from photography, here are some of the things you should know about me:
-I am a friend, a sister, a daughter, and, maybe most importantly, an aunt. My seven nieces and nephews range in age from infant to 13-years-old, and I think my relationship with each one is unique and amazing.
-I am conscious of the earth and our environment - I haven't eaten red meat since I was 12-years-old, and as an adult made the switch to being vegetarian.
-I love cooking and experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen, and I write a blog about the yummy vegetarian recipes I cook here!
-I have been a member of one of our local community gardens for five years now, and am constantly amazed at the amount of food one can grow in a just a couple of raised beds!
-I recently started making my own body products - this is a weird one, I know! I am a big believer in knowing what we put in and on our bodies, and have discovered all of the amazing concoctions you can create at home, ranging from lip balms to lotions, and even handmade soaps!
-I am someone who believes in the good in people and the beauty of the human spirit.
So that's me - a fairly simple girl who loves to create! I hope you enjoyed finding out a little about me and I look forward to getting to know you!
