Welcome to my nature photography website! I created it so folks who are interested in seeing my work can find (and potentially purchase!) photos from my extensive collection of bird and nature photographs, many of which were taken on beautiful Plum Island, in Newburyport, Massachusetts.



Plum Island is my home, and also home to the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge and over 300 species of birds, many of them rare or endangered! Trained as a journalist and an artist, I didn't plan on becoming a bird photographer. But living here right on the Salt Marsh and watching all the life around me come and go over the seasons, I became fascinated with the beauty and personalities of the incredible numbers of birds and animals that call Plum Island home.  That led to photographing their behavior, which led to finally spending the biggest part of most days out in nature with them all ... watching these lovely creatures be born, grow up, and find families of their own.  


Awards and Honors

 Recently featured by Nikon USA, awards include First Place in the Wildlife category of the prestigious International Fine Art Photography Awards (FAPA) as well as The National Audubon 2020 Photography Awards' gallery of the ten most intriguing bird behavior photos! My Instagram and Facebook pages reach over 17K followers, and my photos have been featured on some of the top Bird photography pages in the world, including the North American Nature Photographers Association (@NANPApix) as well as @best_birds_of_ig, @birds.nature, @elite_raptors and many more.  To see my most up to date work, check out Facebook, as I post at least one new picture there each day!
