Announcement   * Modern Farmhouse Decor * Nautical & Ocean Decor * Nature & Botanical Prints * Literary Quotes * Rustic Wall Art * Still Life & Whimsical Art * Woodsy Nature Photography * Vintage Inspired Still Life * ~~ Custom orders welcome~~

Photography with a warm, vintage flair! My flea market treasures often inspire my work as well as a retro feel of certain eras in history. Photography has given me so much appreciation and love for the small everyday moments of beauty we often miss in the hustle and bustle of our busy world. We forget to stop, breathe and look around, be present, be mindful, be in the here and now.

My love for books, poetry, and literacy quotes inspires me beyond measure! Just a few of my favorite writers are Ralph Waldo Emerson, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Walt Whitman as well as many, many more. So much of their heart felt words, quotes and writings are still poignant and meaningful in our world today.

All original photographs and lifestyle items are made to order and shipped worldwide. Questions? Message me, happy to help :) Custom and wholesale orders are welcome!

About

Seeing the beauty in the Ordinary Moments...

My love for photography began when I was very young. It wasn't until later in life that I realized I actually saw things a bit differently than others. Now I seem to live and breathe it everyday. I find inspiration everywhere....soft colors and hazy sunlight, nature and the changing seasons of New England, detailed architecture of historical buildings to some of the simplest images, meaningful quotes, and the ordinary, everyday parts of life. It has become my way of "writing" about how I see the world. There is beauty everywhere, focus on the small details and moments. I am all about capturing those small bits of beauty I see in everyday life, photographing them, editing them, saving them, sharing them and hopefully inspiring others to look more closely at the ordinary.

I am an avid collector of black & white vintage photographs, a vintage book lover, a thrift shop shopper, a Mama to 6 rescue senior dogs whom I adore. I have two beautiful daughters, and am married to an amazing man who has dedicated his life to the military. I love to travel but love even more coming home. I get to live quite contentedly in a tiny town of 780 people along the beautiful rocky coast of New Hampshire.

I have been fortunate to have my work featured by:

* Apartment Therapy
* The Photography Blogger
* Mudpuppies / Galison Stationery
* Bath & Body Works
* The Frosted Petticoat
* The Handmade Home
* PS I Adore You
* Hudson Bay and Lord & Taylor Stores in Canada
* Heinemann Publishing

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I always want you to love your purchase! If there is a problem please let me know immediately so we can figure out a resolution. If your item is damaged while in transit to you, please contact me immediately with a description and photos of the damage so that I may pass them on to my lab to have a replacement sent to you as soon as possible. Any questions at all, message me, I am happy to help!

Canvas wraps, wood plank art and large format prints are custom made to order at the time of purchase, therefore are final sale. Prints up to size 11x14 may be returned or exchanged.

(All items must be returned in original, unused condition. Buyer is responsible for all return shipping costs.)

Are your prints framed?

All of my prints are shipped unframed, simply because of the high cost of shipping framed artwork. All of my prints are offered in standard sizes where you can easily purchase a frame of your choice at a Michaels, Hobby Lobby or even a Target. Or you can choose to use a professional framing shop located near you.

Do you offer bulk or wholesale orders?

Yes indeed I do, please message me!
