My Story

I am the mother of of two beautiful, smart and creative little girls, photographer, wife, business owner and lover of real life. I love the simple in everyday life.

I strive to capture my subject being who they are and the in-between, perfectly imperfect moments of you life. I want to tell your story though my lens and preserve it forever in an image.


My rebel girl, Oliese Mae.

Having been a published newspaper and magazine photojournalist in Western Pennsylvania/Northeast Ohio since the new millennium, I have had photographs published in USA Today, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Post-Gazette and the Pittsburgh Tribune Review and many other newspapers around the world, as well as a few big magazines.

I prefer to photograph my subjects in their own environments, so I have stopped taking request for shoots in my small studio but I love photographing  just outside of it in an open field or at a location of your choice in the Youngstown, Cleveland, Ohio and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Regions.

I tried to dress them up and get “real” photos of them. I think It worked.

 Specializing in real life documentary photography. Capturing pure, natural moments in birth, newborn and documentary wedding photography in the Youngstown and Cleveland, Ohio and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania regions. Also available for destination weddings.
