About I grew up in the suburbs just north of New York City and got my first camera, to take to sleep-away camp, when I was 8 years old. I found the camp's small darkroom a cool, quiet refuge from the hot, sticky chaos of summer. Though I have definitely outgrown my disdain for the outdoors, I will never outgrow my need to take pictures. When not out and about with my camera, I spend much of my time working on my cooking skills and trying to keep up with the garden. Currently I make St. Louis my home, where I live with my husband, Joe, and our cat, Claire. I am available for work worldwide.
