Hello there! I’m the short girl behind the lens who is always laughing and goofy while bringing your best self out in front of my camera. Born and raised in Boston, MA and moved to Jacksonville, FL when I was fourteen, I consider both my homes in their own way. When I am not navigating around a wedding dance floor, chasing beautiful light with beautiful people in front of my lens or editing… you will usually find me traveling, in the gym and spending time with the people I love most, including my best friend and better half, Todd. I am a lover of random adventures, traveling, binging Netflix shows, breweries, interior design, sushi, chai latte’s, my fur baby Milo and fresh flowers (peonies and tulips are my favorite)

I took the leap of faith in 2010 to quit my day job and go full time with my passion and make West House Photography my career. It was the scariest and best decision of my life. I picked up my very first camera when I was six years old and I continued to shoot as a hobby as I slowly built a portfolio entering my teens and early twenties. My dad shot film photography in his younger years and I grew up seeing his images from when he bicycled across the country from Boston to San Francisco (insanely cool right?!) Those images resonated with me and peaked my interest in this art at such a young age, and for that I am forever grateful. I love shooting real moments of love and life that are sometimes candid and imperfectly perfect. I tend to find beauty in unexpected locations and things and my absolutely favorite thing is bringing the romance and "wow" moment to a shot. This journey has taken me to shoot some beautiful weddings all over the state of Florida to as far as Cancun Mexico, California, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Georgia with many more destinations in the future.

Now almost ten years later.... with hundreds of weddings, thousands of clients and countless locations far and wide with some amazing people, I realize I get to be a part of the most amazing moments of peoples lives. From weddings, births and watching families grow... I am so grateful and absolutely adore what I do. I truly love documenting love in all of it’s forms.

Every person I welcome into the West House family is near and dear to me, so if you are planning a wedding or just looking to book a session for a special moment or life event, say hello! I can not wait to meet you and document your story.
