Originally from the United States, I grew up near Boston, MA and relocated to Sydney, Australia with my husband, Brian in 2012, where we are currently based. We both share a love for travel and our journey has taken us to some incredible places over the years. One of the things I enjoyed most about growing up in New England was the different seasons. This has influenced my work as I tend to seek out locations where I can experience and capture autumn and winter scenes at its best. I’ve always loved being out in nature and when the leaves would change color during the autumn months, it felt like a new chapter was beginning. Landscape photography has been a creative outlet for me as it brings a sense of calm and appreciation for life, when surrounded in nature. I strive to convey a sense of place and feeling with each image captured. When we are not travelling, we look after our very energetic Labrador pup, Easton. He is a sweet boy with a big personality, and definitely keeps us on our toes.
Specializing in Landscape & Nature, I became an Accredited Professional Photographer with the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) in 2019. I’m also a member of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) working towards certification. This year I was pleased to learn that my image titled Siglufjörður was the winner in the Single Shot category for the 2022 Photographer of the Year competition, Presented by Camera House and was published in the February | March 2023 issue of the Australian Photography Magazine. I’ve earned both national and international awards, with three of my recent images advancing to the 2022 International Photography Awards Official Selection. In 2021, my image titled Autumn Breeze was awarded 3rd Place in the Nature-Seasons category in the International Photography Awards and was published in the IPA Annual Book of Photography. The prior year, two of my works, titled Stairway to Nowhere and Quest earned 3rd and 5th Place respectively in the Isolation category for the AIPP Silver Lining Awards 2020. As a finalist, the images were featured online in National Geographic Espana and the 3rd Place image was featured online in Capture Magazine.
