Missy and Derek Maternity!

I always love meeting new couples! Especially when work is slow in the winter! These two were troopers, we ended up getting so many great images. Can’t wait to meet the little man, too!!

Getting to know me!

15
I love people, I love my family, and I love my friends. But most of all, I love to photograph them!
Now let me tell you my story!
I grew up in Central Massachusetts, I know and love the area well. I have two sisters and a mom and dad, we have always been very close to each other. (As well as an assortment of animals as pets!!) My passion for photography started around 13 years old and continued to grow. We had a family friend who enjoyed photography as a hobby and was willing to teach me a few things.
That passion began to grow as I went through high school! I was mostly interested in Landscape and Nature photography as I was a bit shy during childhood and my teenage years. I took classes at art museums for photography and as well as being on the high school year book committee!
Now, one of the most important decisions I have made in life regarding photography was choosing to attend the New England School of Photography in Boston. They helped guide my passion into figuring out what exact type of photography I wanted to do. It was a whole new world living in Boston, much different from a small town that I grew up in! It tested my comfort levels daily, I was forced to be outgoing and meet new people! It truly molded the person that I am now. I graduated in the Spring of 2010 as a Portrait and Wedding Photographer. Who knew!?
After graduation I was slowly building my business, it got put on the back burner a bit as I married my high school sweetheart in January 2012. And our beautiful son Jack was born in October 2012!
Ever since then I have been working so hard at growing my business and getting my name out there. I don’t do this for the money, I take pictures because I absolutely love being a part of my clients lives and watching them grow. I am definitely a people pleaser and will do whatever it takes to get you the beautiful images you are looking for! I like to bring new ideas to every shoot/wedding but am also always open to trying any suggestions. I am always in a friendly mood with a smile on your face, even if the wedding is running behind or the newborn baby won’t sleep for pictures. If you have any questions up until your scheduled session or your big wedding day I will be there to answer them! I pride myself on always being available and getting back to you within the same day, if not the next day. I treat my clients like close friends and family, always have and always will.
Hopefully this gives you a better idea of who I am as a photographer and person!
I look forward to hearing yours!

Happy New Year!
