About Me

I have the hardest time talking about myself, let alone writing about myself!  Hmm, where to begin?  I’m sure a lot of women photographers get their start when they have children and begin documenting their lives.  My story starts a little differently.  I became interested in photography at 13.  I was about to start high school (shout out to Strath Haven!) and had to decide which elective courses I wanted to take.  I decided to give photography a whirl.  I come from a family of photographers.  Both of my grandfathers, who passed before I could know them, were photographers.  Thomas Cunningham was a local photographer out of Norwood, PA who did portrait and commercial photography in Philadelphia and the surrounding areas.  My other grandfather, Vincent Lally, was a war photographer during WWII.  My own father, while not professional, had a manual camera and was always documenting our family as we grew up.  So I guess you could say that it runs in my blood!  I took my first course in high school and fell in love.  I continued my photography journey throughout college.  I can still remember the feel and smell of the darkroom!  While I miss those darkroom days, I do admit that I love digital photography!

The most important thing in my life has always been family and I think that’s why I chose to go into family portraiture.  I did dream early on, of traveling the world and working for National Geographic, and while traveling definitely appeals to me still, I would never give up the life I have and the time with my family for that. Plus, I love the idea of being able to provide portraits that show the love your family has for one another.

So, I look forward to getting to know you and your family!  I can’t wait to witness and document the happiness and love that you have for each other!
