................................. { I } .................................

... am a Tennessee girl living in and loving Brooklyn.

... fell in love with taking pictures when I was 12 years old and still. can’t. stop.

... did the undergraduate photojournalism school thing in Boston.

... have a long list of clients & collaborators that I adore – see below.

... am so incredibly lucky that the guy I love shoots weddings with me. As a photojournalist, he’s one of those rare talents with the deepest respect for the craft of photography.

... worked part-time for many years at an organization focused on economic, social and cultural rights and hope to carry my colleagues' dedication to social justice into future photography work.

... collaborated on a long-term project with the talented writer/producer Lisa Dowda highlighting sanitation workers in New York. The work was shown in an exhibition in NoHo in February 2011, appeared in the New York Times, New York Daily News, Marie Claire.com, Glamour.com, and was featured on NBC New York Non-stop with Chuck Scarborough and Channel NY1 News.

... am an admitted photo dork. I could never settle on just one specialty because I love photographing everything. That’s why the freelance thing fits so perfectly - it allows me to take on a wide variety of work – journalism and documentary photography, lifestyle and editorial photography, professional portraits, travel photography, nature and environmental photography, family and children portraits, and wedding, performance and event photography.
