I'm a graduate of St. Bonaventure University with a BA in Journalism/Mass Communications and a minor in Visual Arts. My photography experience was primarily self-taught with a lot of initiation by fire. I've been photographing weddings and portraits since the winter of 2006. From May of 2009 to July 2012 I worked at the lead photographer and videographer for the Olean Times Herald, covering news, features and sports.
Me? I'm a nerd. I'm a crazy cat lady at heart, with 3 felines at home: Claire, Luna and Artemis. I like anime, comic books, video games and anything involving mechs. I'm a trekkie to the core, but love me some jedi action. And my TV is typically tuned into USA for Law & Order: SVU or the Sci-fi channel. You will most likely find me in one of these places: 1) At the movie theater for a midnight debut 2) Glued to Netflix, burning through a 9 season TV show in just one week 3) Lost in Tumblr gifs or Facebook memes 4) Out snapping photos, drawing or painting 5) Editing your photos.
Originally from the Western New York area, I am now based in Eugene/Springfield, Oregon. My goal is to provide the highest possible quality portraits at a reasonable price for you. It is important to me that your portraits aren't just pictures, but images that clearly depict this particular time in your life.
