Hi! Thank you for stopping by!
I believe photography is a beautiful medium to capture our everyday moments in addition to the milestones in our lives. With a click of the shutter you can document the smile of a baby, the tear at a wedding, the laugh of a joke or just the beauty of the light streaming down from the clouds. To me, it is amazing how looking at the photographs on the wall of my children or bringing out my wedding album can bring back a flood of memories. Over the years photography has helped me slow down to appreciate light differently. Sometimes I want to capture the beauty with my camera and other times I just want to enjoy it.
Years ago, I fell in love with photography. I grew up in Rochester, NY during a time where everyone knew someone who worked at Eastman Kodak. Our freezer was filled with film and I took my first photography class during middle school in the basement of Kodak's Theater on the Ridge. It wasn't until 2010 that I really focused on photography again and started second shooting weddings. After I had my first child I gave some thought to starting my own business and ventured out into family and wedding photography.
Travel has also been a big part of my life. Before moving to the Boston area, I lived in Worcester, MA and Amherst, MA; Boulder, CO; Washington, DC and then spent 8 months traveling in South America, India and Nepal. In addition, I have visited Israel, Tanzania, Thailand, Cambodia, Canada, Mexico, and various countries in Europe. My bucket list of places to visit is never-ending. Now as a family, we continue to travel in the US and internationally. My husband does his best to chronicle our adventures at www.operationwanderlust.com. And if you are thinking about traveling with kids - do it. I'd be happy to share our experiences with you.
After years of bouncing around the country my husband (Marc) and I moved back to the Boston area in 2010. We now reside in Belmont, MA with our two children (Ezra and Sadie) and two cats (Kili and Madidi). Before starting BAF Photography I worked in student affairs and then at a boutique research firm in Washington, DC. These days what free time I have left is spent traveling, hiking, and running, in addition, I'm determined not to miss out on documenting the lives of my children. In October 2014, I started a project 365 where I take at least one photo a day.
