Her Favorite Things

City of Boston

It is hard to believe that Boston has been home four years now! I have come to love everything about this city. It is so full of character, history, and charm. I love being able to see ocean and Boston is a city almost entirely on the water so everywhere in this city is a wonderful place to be.


I grew up in a household that always had a family dog. When I was little, if you asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up I would say “a dog.” Long story short – I LOVE dogs. I have always dreamt of having my own dog when I grew up. A Dalmatian, named Rigsby. In January of 2023 that dream came true! He is my WFH buddy, my favorite model, and the most crazy & chaotic energy you may ever be around. But he is my baby and I love him with alllll my heart.¬†

The Beach

There is just something about the beach. When I am there I am fully present and just completely happy.

Live Music

I absolutely love live music! There is something about seeing my favorite artists live that is just an overwhelming feeling! Not only my favorite artists at concerts but any live music. I will choose a place to eat just based on the fact that someone with some talent and a dream is willing to come there and share their beautiful music with people they have never met.

pizza night - favorite things

Pizza Night

Every Friday is Pizza Night in my family. My family means the world to me and pizza night is our longest standing family tradition. No matter what we spend Friday nights together enjoy one of the simplest joys in life… some great homemade pizza!


I went to the University of Connecticut and majored in Fine Arts with a concentration in Photography. So even though Photography is my passion I do enjoy some of the other arts as well mostly drawing & painting!

hair accessories

Hair Accessories

I love a good hair accessory! Hair scarves, headbands, scrunchies, and even hair clips! I love how one little accessory can dress up any hairstyle.


They say that our sense of smell is linked with memory more than any of our other senses. The smell of lavender always makes me think of my dad.

Alice In Wonderland

My favorite movie is Alice in Wonderland. I love the imagination and sense that your mind can create a whole world of its own.

Bloody Marys

Bloody Marys are my favorite! I am the person the bartender is thoroughly annoyed with because I will order one at the bar at 8pm with no shame.


I love, love! I mean… duh! Why else would I love photographing Weddings! Love is such a beautiful and wonderful thing. It is amazing that we can love one another and get to be loved in return.


My family means the absolute world to me. I would do anything for them and I know they would do anything for me. I love all of them so much.
