is an American photographer who was born and raised in Newton, Massachusetts.
Growing up in a small, but busy home with her mother, older brother, uncle and grandparents, she was hardly alone but eagerly sought out space to be by herself. She was happy to spend her days drawing and creating with whatever supplies she had.
Studying art, design and film, she wound up in advertising – overseeing creative teams, art buying and production. Leaving her career to start a family, she has come back to her camera. She finds inspiration in the people around her, the way they live, life at home and adventures in the world with her family.
