The raw beauty of the Western United States is striking. It is a tale of contrast- of rolling hills and rigid mountain peaks, of a newborn fawn and a fierce grizzly bear, of a flowing river and a vast waterfall. This collection of photographs was taken throughout the west- primarily in Montana and Wyoming, but also in Colorado and Arizona. It is my attempt to hold those contrasts and raw beauty in front of me.
I opened my studio ten years ago in New Haven, Connecticut, passionate about using my photography to help people connect with their families, their stories, and their own beauty. When I'm not at the studio I love to travel and collect new photographs for the fine art series. My work can be found in private collections around the world, and has been featured in The New York Times, CNN, National Geographic, Forbes, MSN, and Connecticut Cottages & Gardens. I live in New Haven with my husband, Yale University professor Dr. Paul Van Tassel, and our three kids.
