I believe that honest imagery is vital to any storytelling mission. I work as a documentary-style photographer for a variety of clients, from brands to small businesses, individuals and couples. My favorite subjects are those that showcase the vibrance and bounty of real life.
I’m so lucky and inspired to be part of a community filled with makers, farmers, bakers, and creators of all types that have beautiful stories to tell. I’m living my dream job, helping these people share the beauty that they’re already putting out into the world.
I balance corporate, academic, and non-profit client work with wedding and family work, and I love documenting the honest and joyful stories of real love at all phases of life.
My work has been featured in local and national publications including National Geographic, Culture Magazine, Buzzfeed News, Sift Magazine, and Edible Finger Lakes.
My husband loves to joke that my favorite subject is hands. But look at these hands, making art and craft, facilitating growth, innovating, and bringing beauty to the world. Don't those hands look like the best way of representing what's coming from the heart?
In all seriousness though, these passion-driven creators are some of my favorite subjects, so I offer discounts to artists and makers who would like their process documented.
Again with the hands. The hands sow the seeds, tend the garden, reap the harvest, mill and press and process the crop, cook and then finally serve up our nourishment. Ithaca is delicious, beautiful, and bountiful, and I love having the opportunity to document that bounty and the hearts and hands that cultivate it.
I love documenting leaders and small business owners in the environments where they feel comfortable and at ease, allowing them to show off their true selves and showcase their passion, process, and product.
