Behind the Lens


I'm a celebration enthusiast who believes that there is something to celebrate every day, in the big moments and small ones!

New Englander, lover of light,  adventure, and telling joyful stories from behind my lens.

I am a grateful wife, believer, and photographer. I capture joyful legacies because I believe in preserving the things that matter most, the things that tell a family's story. From black and white photographs kept in dusty albums by my great grandparents to family recipes that have been refined as they've passed from generation to generation, I cherish the things that are lasting and timeless.

Each and every day is worth celebrating. Whether it's baking apple cider scones on the first day of fall, challenging my husband Dillon to a board game, cheering on New England sports teams with my family, toasting gooey s'mores during a weekly family dinner, or dancing to a great playlist in the kitchen, I believe there is so much joy and delight to be found in everyday life. My heart is to help you savor the good things, too. I'm so glad that you're here!

My husband, Dillon! We were married in a sun-strewn little church in Historic Amherst Village on June 10, 2017 and have been building our life together ever since!

The moment right before the bride walks down the aisle - there is so much joyful anticipation in the air!

about you

Does this sound like you? Inquire with me.

My couples are drawn to the classic, and timeless - the things that last. They are joyful,  gracious and kind.

KSP couples are discerning, opting for fewer, better things in a world that can feel so loud. They place value on investing in quality photography that will tell their story and build their family legacy, one joyful moment at a time. And they want an incredible wedding photography experience!
