That was 20 years ago, but that storytelling passion is what drives me today and why I’ve spent decades honing my craft. It’s why I throw back the covers to explore the Maine coast before dawn, just to see what color the sunrise will be. It’s why I’ve weathered seasickness and frigid January ocean waters to document a lobster woman’s day-in-the-life for a documentary book. It’s why I spent a week on the Florida coast photographing the beauty and grace of horses with industry leaders at a recent equine photography retreat. My heart leaps when I recall so many unique stories and the people I have met behind my lens. 

Our most cherished treasures are those that evoke an emotion, mine are photographs. The one I have displayed on my home office desk is of my first child sitting between trees in an apple orchard, holding an apple. I remember my shutter clicked just in time to catch my toddler’s fleeting mix of rebellion and wonder as she tried out her first bite. Crunch! It was there, between the rows of trees at Lakeside Orchard, that I realized an inner truth: I am obsessed with capturing life’s simple stories.

Stories are most sincere when narrated, not staged. So while we’ll discuss details ahead of your session and I guide you into the most radiant light, I prefer to then step back and let you and your loved ones interact naturally. Doing so gives you the space to enjoy being together, and it lets me capture those moments of love and laughter that happen best all on their own. Like a dad tossing his son skyward at sunset, a young rider sneaking kisses on her pony’s velvety nose, or three brothers bursting into giggles when I ask them to look at each other.

It’s in these instants that our lives’ stories are most intimately told. They might be simple, like my daughter’s bliss as she snacked on that apple, but they’ll hold a whole novel of emotion for you. Because the most beautiful stories aren’t the ones you’ll read in books or see on TV, they’re the ones unfolding all around you in the life you love!
