I love that natural light photography allows me to connect with people outdoors. I am thankful for local nature reserves and parks that preserve our beautiful landscape for both humans and all other living things to enjoy.
For every photo session, Stardust Photography donates a tree to the Arbor Day Foundation.
2014 has been another wonderful year for Stardust Photography! For the first time, Stardust Photography went international. In March, my sister and I had the wonderful chance to tour Italy and Greece with Saint Vincent College. It was incredible to see places I had only ever seen in books and dreams. In May, I graduated from Saint Vincent with a degree in history. It was definitely one of the proudest moments of my life! Throughout summer and fall, I photographed a number of wonderful families, couples, and high school seniors. I added to my feline family by adopting another cat, Artemis. My first cat, Apollo, loves his sister!
Here is just a small sampling of my favorite photographs and experiences. Thank you all for the support!

We often go out looking for adventure, for thrilling sights and extravagant scenes. And yet I am struck by the beauty of places I return to time and time again. Just as birds fly instinctively to their summer home, and am refreshed by the comfortable simplicity of places like Powdermill Nature Reserve, whose trails I walked as a young child and still explore today.
