My love for photography began at the age of 10 when my Uncle spent an evening with me in his laundry-room-converted-into-dark-room, after I had finished my homework. Since, I have traveled all over the world photographing various countries and cultures for personal use and memories. 3 years ago, my husband replaced my SLR with a digital SLR camera (I think he felt we were going broke buying!) for Christmas, and my photography hobby took off...I couldn't take enough pictures. Last year, I began creating my own Christmas cards, note cards and calendars. What started out as something I enjoyed doing for myself, evolved into a business venture, as people eyed my works and wanted to purchase for their use, as well as gifts.

I am self-taught in photography, however I have a B.S. in Information Technology Management, and my experience and knowledge in computing complements digital photography and processing very well. I'm currently enrolled in digital photography continuing education classes. I recently established a nature and pet photography business and shoot between 500-700 pictures a week, on average.

I enjoy taking life and nature photographs. My photos are listed on various photography websites.

Life…I photograph life. Life as you and your pet live it. No props, no studios, no fancy backdrops. My experience has shown that your pet’s personality is best captured in a setting that is comfortable to them. Whether your little darling is catching a Frisbee, playing fetch, demonstrating obedience skills or snuggling into some cozy space for an afternoon nap, your pet’s individuality is best photographed on their turf.

I am available for customized photography sessions in your home or other favorite hangout. My rates are reasonable and vary based on driving distance. Additionally, I have many nature photos available for purchase.

I serve all of Rhode Island and South Eastern Massachusetts, to include the Cape area, Boston and it's suburbs, as well as all points south.
