I’ve traveled around the world photographing people and places, and I’m proud to call Boston my home base. Being a wedding photographer I get to be a part of a profound and deeply meaningful celebration. I get to preserve for people those fleeting moments when love shows itself in a glance, or an embrace, a promise or a kiss. And I get to do it all while going to awesome parties. Job, career and vocation don’t always converge, but for this lucky lady, they have. I get to earn a living doing what I love, and I believe that joy and dedication shows in my photographs.
I’m a wife to one very loving and steadfast husband, Steve. He’s the bee’s knees. And he’s damn handsome, if I do say so myself. When he’s not at grad school or at work, he’s usually found in the kitchen preparing amazing food for our little family. I, on the other hand, am much better behind a camera than in front of a stove. We’ve been together for over a decade, and marrying him is the best decision I’ve ever made. If you told me in my 20s that being married could make me this happy, I’d have laughed you out of the room.
I am also a mom to one sweet and bewitching daughter named Sylvie. She breathes life into every moment. Her fashion sense is as fierce as her hair, but still can’t hold a candle to the ferocity of her little spirit.
We all live in Lexington MA, in a 200 year old barn, which I’ve spent the last 2 years turning into a home in which my family can live, love, and grow. If I weren’t able to be a wedding photographer, I would be in interior design. I enjoyed every aspect of converting this place from an empty shell into a fully appointed home and half of the fun was getting it done the way I wanted it on a very tight budget. Actually, I loved it so much I’ve started a lifestyle site…check it out! (coming soon!)
A few of the things you may find me involved with on a day off:
Beer and chocolate. I’m Belgian, so beer and chocolate are very important to me. I believe them to be food groups. My mom used to send me to school with butter and chocolate sandwiches. I was very popular at the lunch table.
Ice hockey. I played ice hockey for 10 years, and although I’m old enough to have had Wayne Gretzky sign my stick in person for me as a kid, I’d still like to get back on the ice.
Movies. Way too much of my brain has been taken up by memorized movie lines. Formulas for black hole thermodynamics? Nope. Animal House and Caddy Shack from start to finish? You bet. I wonder what I could accomplish if I didn’t have every episode of The Simpsons swimming around up there…
