About Peggy

As a portrait photographer, my goal is to capture the essence of your family, the personality of your child, or the joy of your family celebration or event.  You’ll find my style to be very warm and engaging, which brings out so many fun expressions on the faces of your loved ones.  Some are so unexpected, they’ll be hard to resist.

I love getting to know each personality, and then watching your family interact.  Photography is all about preserving these fleeting moments.  That’s why I love to shoot in black and white; I believe the tones preserve these moments best.  The shades of gray create such powerful emotions and feelings of nostalgia.

I always get enormous pleasure from connecting with children.  As the photographer at the other end of the camera, I find that there’s nothing more delightful than seeing a child become excited and involved in our session.

My passion for photography comes from my Dad.  I can remember when I was eight years old, thumbing through the pages of National Geographic Magazine vowing to visit faraway places, becoming one with remote villagers and capturing every unguarded moment on film.  My dream has come true in a way, because today I’m photographing people in their “natural habitat”, but much closer to home.

Being a photographer is the best job in the world.  Every day I am inspired by the people I meet, and the moments we capture.  I know you’ll be inspired too.
