I believe in capturing authentic, timeless moments to share your story because your moments deserve to be cherished forever. I began creating imagery in high school when I picked up one of those fancy cameras for the very first time. It was a perfect match and I have been photographing ever since.
I studied photojournalism at Penn State, which was the best 3.5 years ever. I took advantage of every opportunity that I could like photographing for Penn State Football - which was one of my favorite experiences.
After graduating from Penn State, I decided to take that risk and focus on what I am most passionate about. As a photographer, I incorporate the perfect balance of photojournalism and an artistic style making me a one of a kind visual storyteller ready to share yours.
a picture is worth a thousand words.
My little sister, Emma, is a spunky, brave, funny, 13 year old and my best friend.
As we grew up together, she made me become an advocator, protector, and a storyteller. With my sister’s disability, communication can be difficult when she cannot always express what she wants or needs the way she would like.
I knew although words cannot always be used to express the way she feels in particular moments that my photographs could. Because of Emma she has changed my life in the best ways possible and the reason why I do what I love every single day.
I am a lover of all things Disney and you can always catch me trying to plan my next trip!
My obsession grew immensely when my little sister who has Down syndrome was born. My sister absolutely loves everything Disney and… only Disney. Disney World is one of the very few places that “rolls out the red carpet” for individuals with disabilities and treats everyone with love and respect. Disney World holds a special place in my family’s hearts and my favorite part about it is capturing all the candid moments my sister experiences and being able to see the joy and excitement she has for all of it.
Because my family could not get enough Disney, we wanted to share these magical experiences with others. Two years ago, my mother started a non-profit called Pixie Dust Wishes, which grants individuals with special needs/disabilities a trip to Disney World! Since then, we have granted 13 wishes.
"Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age, and dreams are forever"
Family is everything and of course, my favorite people! I am very lucky to have a supportive and loving family. I am so thankful for all the fun memories we have experienced together.
I always fall for those unnecessary Target runs, but retail therapy is the best. Plus, who does not enjoy long romantic walks down every aisle of Target?
Not only do I love my daily coffee, but it must be iced. I will be the one bundled up in my parka and scarf walking through a foot of snow sipping on my delicious iced coffee.
WE ARE! l am proud to be a Penn State alumna and love the fact that the university is in my backyard. You can catch me cheering on Penn State Football, eating ice cream from Berkey Creamery or taking photos of the beautiful campus.
Disney World is my favorite place to be and you are never too old to enjoy it! I am always counting down the days until my next trip.
