I am a professional photographer, currently specializing in newborn photography, as well as high school senior photography. I have a photography studio in Windham, Maine, where I teach high school students and aspiring photographers the intricate workings of lighting, composition, design elements, and the art of creating a dynamic image. I studied photography at McIntosh college in Dover, NH. After graduating in 2006, I immersed myself in the field; working as a freelance photographer, photo editor & graphic designer. I also worked in a fine art gallery as a photography curator, where I had the opportunity to work with art of photography masters. This further sharpened my eye for excellent photography, and inspired me to pursue portraiture and abstraction in addition to my commercial work. I currently spend most of my photographing hours in local hospitals, creating a photojournalistic story of baby's first day. Photojournalism became my new passion when I was given the opportunity to photograph a specific people group in Ethiopia in 2016. I returned in 2017 to further this work, to bring awareness to certain issues, and also to follow up with the wonderful people I had first photographed in 2016. I plan to continue this work in 2019.
