Hello there! I’m a photo-loving-beach-bum Canadian, a proud New Yorker (13 years and counting), and a cat mom/plant lady. I’ve worked and traveled all over the world. I went to grad school for International Affairs at the New School, and fell in love with documenting my travels and adventures. I also teach kids photography. I married my love of photography (pun intended) with my passion for social justice into my wedding practice and here I am.

When I'm not shooting weddings, I’m a total beach bum. This might sound like an oxymoron coming from a Montrealer, but I adore the ocean (and very much dislike winter). I swim and surf whenever possible, and I get out to the Rockaways as often as I can. I do a ton of beach photography, including a series about couples at the beach, and I’ve been published a few times, including here and here. If you see me at the beach, come say hi, and let’s have a frozen drink together.

My fur babies are Skittles and NaeNae. I'm an only child and an Aries. I have traveled to 30 countries. I've been a photographer for over 12 years. I speak French and Spanish. I own several cameras and I adore Polaroids. I love Mr. Softee ice cream trucks. Plant lady, current count: 70. I am lover of too many shows, but recent obsessions include Broad City, The Office, Nurse Jackie, and Mrs. Maisel.
