My passion for photography started when I was 15 and my father taught me how to chase sunsets. I bought a used Yashica from my local second hand shop. It appeared to have mold growing inside and had a number 13 scratched on the bottom, but I loved that camera! Over the years my cameras have meant different things to me. They've captured my children's lives, my friends and family. They've captured the gorgeous place where I live and as a 13th generation Mainer, I've explored my Maine and Acadian heritage with my lens. More recently, I've learned about portraiture and I'm lucky to be able to photograph the amazing people of this area and help tell their stories. It has been everything to me.
