• Welcome

It warmed my heart so much to be back at Historic Stonebrook Farms with the sweetest couple. We didn’t get to take the sunset photos we had planned during Katelyn & Jeff’s wedding, so we took some time to do them afterwards. The stunning sunset and beautiful fireflies that made it all even sweeter. These are my favorite kind of photos <3

Devin and Ashley are clearly loved. By each other, by their family, by their friends. Weddings that are full of celebration, tears, dancing, (and happy horses?!) make me extra grateful to have the job I do. One example:  photographed Ashley with her parents while she was getting ready (while Kristen was with Devin and the guys) and nearly every moment felt precious. Tears, hugs, cheek kisses – so much love in one place. I only hope these photos does it justice.

This was my first time at Durham Hill Farms, and I was amazed by the view. If I wasn’t moving far away, I’d be stoked to come back here. This venue made my job so much easier. (Horses!)

Kristen Kidd was my second shooter for this one, and she is amazing and helpful and took beautiful photos. Thanks, Kristen.

I had an amazing opportunity to take creative, dusky, low-key, juicy portraits for some beautiful people in honor of the first anniversary of The Co-Op Shop Philadelphia. They’re an amazing hair shop/art gallery in Chestnut Hill who embraces creativity, diversity, and autonomy of their hair artists, (who are each wonderful). Kelsey, Angel, Sean, and Brianna did the hair of each of these models, and I got to photograph them. This was such a great collaboration of artistry – hair, photography, and the expressions of these wonderful people.

Some of these photos are up on The Co-Op Shop’s wall throughout May. Go get your hair cut and check it out :)
(Seriously, Kelsey is one of the few people I’ve trusted to cut my hair. These people are great).

I have been so wonderfully supported as a photographer in Pennsylvania, but it’s time to continue moving forward: I’m headed to the west coast. As explained in the video by the wonderful Kristian Golick Films, I’ll be getting my masters in Art Therapy Counseling.

I’ll be taking PA photos through July 2017, and will continue to take photos in Portland for at least the three years I’m in school, and I *cannot* wait to photograph people within the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.

I don’t see photography and Art Therapy as all that different life paths for me; all of my passions are driven by compassion and creativity. I’ve known I belong as a therapist since I was 17, yet have given photography most of my time, which of course, I do not regret. Last year I began taking less photos to make room for a job as a support staff for adults with disabilities, and I have been thrilled to balance both photography and social work. I’ve joked that I’ve always wanted “two part time jobs,” or in other words, there are too many things I must pursue to ever follow one career path.

What I love is giving people the space to experience whatever it is they’re going through. Finally pursuing Art Therapy is simply the next evolution: I’ve been sharing in people’s joy and celebration, and as an Art Therapist, I’ll also be present in people’s pain. With both photography and work in human services, I have the ability to be present for both.

See you soon, Portland.
