About the artist
I am the artist who will give you gorgeous portraits to treasure for a lifetime while making your entire experience enjoyable. I will guide you through the whole portrait process and make you feel at ease.
How I got started:
I was homeschooling one of my children at the beginning of 2010. We went to the library and I checked out a book on digital photography. I quickly traded in my point and shoot for an entry-level DSLR camera. One year later my artwork was on display along side other professional photographer’s work at Dulles International Airport. Since then my work has been on display in various exhibitions throughout the U.S. and won awards including in the prestigious International Photographic Competition held annually by the Professional Photographers of America.
I am a member of PPA, PPANE, PPAM, PPOCC, The Cultural Arts Center of Cape Cod, and The Sandwich Arts Alliance. I previously served on the board of PPSGW. I live in Cape Cod, Massachusetts with my husband and we have four children.
If I could offer a single piece of photography advice it would be this: Print your images! Digital photos are NOT archival. I don't think many people realize the thousands of digital photos we all have on our devices will not last. The only way to be certain the images you want to keep will still be around in the years to come is to print them.
