After receiving my first film camera as a teenager, photography quickly became my favorite creative medium. I attended The Cleveland Institute of Art and received a BFA in photography in 2003. While in school, my work evolved into an emphasis on a photojournalistic style of portraiture culminating with a thesis project documenting my sister’s fight with liver failure and utilizing self portraits to explore concepts of death.
After the surgery, I decided to move to Atlanta where I ended up meeting my husband and starting our life together. Two children later, we have made our home here. My own pregnancy and birth experiences became the starting point for my career in birth photography which allows me the honor of documenting life.
