About Me

Thanks so much for visiting my blog! After working as a staff photographer for newspapers for almost five years, I decided to turn my lens toward documentary wedding photography. I now own two wedding photography businesses with my husband Max–Wildflower Wedding Photography and Dreamlove Photography. We spend our summers living in western Massachusetts, and the rest of the year in Columbia, Missouri!

Lots of people ask me how I fell in love with photography…  It sounds crazy, but it all started with crickets.  In 2004, I went to work in New York City for the Student Conservation Association as an environmental educator.  I was that “special school visitor” who brought crickets into the classroom to talk about why they were brown and had gigantic legs.  While visiting a class of second-graders in Brooklyn, a student knocked the container of crickets over, and the lesson suddenly came alive!  Crickets were everywhere and students were screaming.  The teacher backed away and started for her chair and all I wanted to do was grab my camera and photograph the scene.  At that moment, I knew I wanted to be a photographer.

I love to photograph the little things we walk by everyday without ever pausing to really examine.  I am currently entranced with a personal project documenting the innermost parts of flowers.

I sell most of my work in the form of signed, high quality archival prints.  If you’re interested, please visit my purchase page.
