WHY I DO THIS-Family portraits are very important to me. I LOVE what I do. It's fun! I love people. It's a great feeling being the right photographer for a family. We have fun but at the same time we create portraits that will be passed down for generations. I value family relationships and love capturing the connections. Family is our most important connection.

I LOVE my husband Ed and our dog Nobska, the Schnoodle, and cooking meals in the winter made of lobster, oysters and quahogs. There's no time to cook during the season because I'm at the beach photographing every night at dinner time!

I'M GRATEFUL I spent my childhood summers just a block away from my home studio. Those were wonderful times spent on my Grandfather's lobster boat, The Water Wagon. I'm also a grateful 2008 cancer survivor. It was challenging but now over! I'm thrilled to have received Professional Recognition by earning various industry related degrees and photographic awards. I'm grateful for my relationships and friends.

A DAY OFF in the summer is going out on the boat, digging for quahogs, or hanging out at Quissett Harbor with hubby and the dog. In the winter I enjoy painting classes at The Falmouth Art Center and a vacationing somewhere warm!
