Photography was not always my path, but helping people always has been, and so 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.
I found myself drawn to photographing women, especially during the amazing transformation of pregnancy. My clients always left their sessions feeling beautiful and frequently remarked how they found their session to be so self-esteem boosting. As my business grew, I began seeing more and more women who were not pregnant, but were seeking a way to boost their self-esteem by seeing themselves through my eyes and camera.
As women, we are so hard on ourselves, especially with society’s unachievable standards of beauty. My sessions and the resulting photographs allow my clients, from all walks of life, to take time to appreciate just how beautiful, desirable, strong, and sexy they are. I am frequently told that their studio experience and the photographs I create, allow them to regain a sense of self-love–nothing brings me more satisfaction and pride than know I am making a difference in the lives of women with my photography.
