This is where I share my photo journey, from business to photoshoots, to travel and more. Stay awhile and get to know me.

The photo essays are a special part of the blog for me. They highlight stories, struggles, and beauty through photos. These are some of my favorite posts.

“Yes, (boudoir is) about showing some skin – but it’s also about how the skin is shown…” (Amy Sandoval) Boudoir photography can be seen as tacky, inappropriate, or crude, but that simply isn’t true.

I grew up on Lake Winnipesaukee. If you’ve never heard of it, it’s the largest lake in NH, a place where many people come to visit in the summer time. Wolfeboro is the place where you take your family for a summer vacation, get ice cream from the ice cream boat, and enjoy the 4th […]
