living life out in the country of beautiful Northeast Ohio. I am a native of Youngstown, and proud of my hard-working rust belt roots. In 2014 I married my handsome mountain man Benjamin, and in 2019 we welcomed our daughter Hazel Ann into the world. She is a darling redhead, and I still can’t believe that she’s mine! Motherhood is magical and rocked my world in the best possible way, opening my eyes even wider to the beauty of every day life.  I can feel it trickling into my own work and the passion I have for helping families and couples document their own everyday magic - these really are the days, you know?

There are so many ways to share our stories, and I’ve fallen in love with the way we can do so through photographs. Life can be a little messy, a little less-than-perfect, and it’s those moments that I think we look back on and love the best. If you feel the same, then drop me a little note and let’s be friends!

It almost seems cliche these days to add a love of travel to the list, but wanderlust is a real thing and I’ve got it bad. I studied abroad in Florence during college, and ever since then I’m always looking for the next adventure. Luckily my husband is a fluent traveler as well, and we’ve embraced every opportunity to see the mountains and the sea, from the west coast to the east. If you’re located somewhere that I am not, I’d love to come to you! Travel makes my work even more enjoyable, and I love the chance to explore new places.
