I firmly believe that if I’m going to talk-the-talk I need to walk-the-walk; so I make it a point to have my OWN photographs taken. It not only helps me to appreciate my body, it allows me to understand how vulnerable it is to be on the other side of the camera.
As women, we are so hard on ourselves, especially with society’s unachievable standards of beauty. My mission is to provide a safe, empowering, fun and body-neutral space where anyone who identifies as female is welcome. I firmly believe that EVERYbody deserves to be represented in photographs regardless of age, race, sexual orientation or abilities.
I am frequently told that my client’s studio experience and the photographs I create, allow them to regain a sense of self-appreciation — nothing brings me more satisfaction and pride than knowing I am making a difference in the lives of women with my empowerment photography.
I’m also a strong believer in continuing education and make it a point to take trainings & workshops multiple times a year. I’m very excited to share that I recently completed the 7 Pillars course thru The Boudoir University.
As a graduate of The Boudoir University I have pledged to continue to do the work necessary to educate myself on as many different intersections of oppression as possible, in addition to striving to provide a safe, inclusive & empowering photographic experience for all humans, mitigating harm where possible. It is my belief that every human is worthy of respect in the form of, but not limited to: consent, safe practices, open communication & understanding. Every human deserves photographic documentation and it is my promise as your professional to constantly aim for inclusivity, empowerment & empathy in all practices.
Photography was not always my path, but helping people always has been, in 1996 I earned my Master’s in Social Work, through Boston University. After some time working as a social worker, and the birth of my second child, I decided to use my love of photography as a medium to help people.
I studied photography at Boston University’s Center for Digital Imaging Arts, earning a certificate in professional photography. My studio opened in the winter of 2005.
