I was born and raised in New England, surrounded by and enamored with the color and texture of the region; creamy snow-covered farmland that fades seamlessly into an overcast sky, evergreen trees that grow like stubble on the face of a mountain, grainy sand punctuated by smooth stones buffed for years by waves crashing, and of course, the vibrant kaleidoscope of autumn leaves along with the energy changing seasons bring to the northeast.
My inspiration comes from nature's beauty, and my storytelling is a product of growing up in a large family, surrounded by music, motion, and most importantly, laughter.
I learned photography while studying broadcast journalism at Emerson College in Boston, Massachusetts. The stories that moved me most could be caught in one image - singular moments and gestures that left a mark.
My style is heavily influenced by these moments, whether they capture one day-in-the-life or a once-in-a-lifetime day. I believe that our lives are made up of moments, and when we intentionally slow down to observe them, we give thanks for what we have and celebrate how far we've come. I think that's magic, and I'd love to make magic with you.

Communicative, Caring, Good Energy.
It's a pretty sensitive time of your life, when you're trying to immortalize something immense into just a few hours of sunlight. Emotions are running high, and when you feel yourself losing your grip, having good people around you to help you stay strong is important.
Rory was a pillar of support and encouragement from the very beginning, sending us a long sheet explaining how important it is to be comfortable and happy in the photos, not just pretty. I had a lot of worries about my hair and hat, and Rory was very responsive to my anxious texts and patiently reassured me that we would have some good pictures out of the lot. And despite all my conviction that my hair looked awful and my hat stuck up weird, I still look found many keepers and feel torn trying to choose my favorite. Thank you Rory for being there for me through the waiting process and for all your gentle words!Sent on 12/20/2019

Absolutely Beautiful Photos
Choosing Rory as a photographer for our wedding was one of the best decisions we made. We knew how talented she was because she did a fantastic job on our engagement photos but the wedding photos exceeded all our expectations. She makes you feel at ease and relaxed so the photos look natural. She captured so many candid shots of our friends and family enjoying themselves which was so fantastic to see. I highly recommend Rory. You honestly cannot go wrong choosing her.Sent on 11/23/2019
