Margo hails from rural Pennsylvania, where she grew up daydreaming about and photographing a historic home with good light. Today, she resides with her husband in a brick victorian in Berks County, which they are remodeling with the help of her 88-year-old grandfather.

Margo enjoys working alongside aging people in rural America and has often been described by colleagues as an "old soul".

Raving Reviews

"Margo is the prototype of what a professional photographer should be: professional, timely, courteous, and a pleasure to work with. She is conversational, light-hearted, and willing to take pictures over and over again until you are happy with the final result."

- Kris Gardner, PhD. Candidate at Temple University

"Working with Margo is like working with a longtime, trusted friend. She listens carefully and observes quietly. You can count on Margo to illustrate not only the big picture of your photo session, but a handful of creative touches and simply blissful moments along the way."
