Hi! First and foremost, I’m a mama to Ally, Jack and Natalie (search #adventuresofallyandjack and #adventuresofnewbabenatalie on Instagram to see their cuteness!), and am wife to Brian. Then, I’m an artist, photographer and small business owner. I’m also a natural-light photographer that shoots almost 100% outdoors (at least when it comes to portrait sessions).

When it comes to taking pictures, I’m mostly inspired by couples that snuggle, beautiful wedding day details, adventurous places, and unique venues. These things get me excited about my photography, which usually leads to the occasional “Holler!” when shooting. 🙂

I work from home and sometimes a local coffee shop (because I like to be around people) three days a week. I started this business in 2009 and never would have imagined I’d be where I am today in the world of photography. I’m based in Garrett County, MD where I specialize in sessions in my backyard, and both vacationing families and destination weddings at Deep Creek Lake. I’m also available in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and the occasional road trip to somewhere beyond. I’m excited about what I do and look forward to all the fun that lies ahead!

My husband, daughter and I all have the same birthday.  Ally was actually due six days early and came on her own.

My maiden name is difficult to say and spell. I come from an Italian family in southwest PA where the Steelers rule and spaghetti and meatballs are eaten every Sunday.
