THE BACKYARD BOUTIQUE was born out of necessity as a creative outlet and escape from the 9-5 doldrums. I began my college career at Parsons School of Design and quickly realized the fast pace of New York City was not for me. I much prefer fresh air, a front porch rocking chair, and the company of my family to crowded streets and noisy nights.
My love for photography remained with me, and the knowledge and skills I've acquired over the years allowed me to capture important memories and people in my own life. I'm filled with gratitude to be able to share my passion and talent to do the same for the individuals and families I work with. Becoming a mother in 2015 gifted me the opportunity to grow my business while caring for my daughter. Capturing milestones and moments that can be enjoyed now, and preserved forever is simply something I love doing.
