I was born and raised in Southern California & then in 2009 I yanked up my roots and transplanted myself to a very, VERY small town in New Hampshire. I’m pretty sure that Starbucks runs in my veins & a trip to Target trumps anything!! If I’m in the middle of a Harry Potter marathon – whether it’s the books or the movies, don’t talk to me…I’m very busy. #hpforever. I am a full time EMT and volunteer firefighter, but my favorite thing to do is to help people!!

I love weddings, because amongst the chaos & tulle & spare patterned socks lies a love that runs so deeply between two people, & the fact that I get to capture that love is beyond amazing to me. I travel all over the world – my passport is always ready to go!!

Glitter & Mexican food are my jam – as is any random little coffee shop, the Paul Simon Pandora station, fuzzy socks, & homemade donuts!!

Send me an email & we’ll chat!! I can’t wait to meet you!!!

Easy – I want you to remember all of the small things.

The way that the sand felt between your toes when you watched your husband get down on one knee with the most gorgeous diamond that you’d ever seen –

The way that your daughter crinkles her nose in the most adorable way when she laughs –

The very first time that your baby looks at you –

I want you to remember how the peonies in your wedding bouquet smelled when you walked, arm in arm, with your father down the aisle –

I want you to remember how warm the breeze was the night you laughed & said “I do.”

I want you to remember how sweet your grandparents were dancing together at your wedding, how big your belly was with your gorgeous child inside – how your family has grown.

I want to help you remember.
