Working with Margo:

You will never find yourself striking a pose in front of my camera. I place you in your element of comfort and from there, we can tell engaging, honest stories.

I pride myself in photographing people not always seen on camera. I look for those of you working behind the scenes-- a surgeon performing a transplant, a historical society preserving a language, or a jazz artist releasing their first album. 

Reach out with a pitch including coverage needs, budget, and timeline, and you'll receive a custom quote directly from me. From there, we can jump into pre-production conversations or straight into production day. I'm a people-person and I look forward to working with you.

LATEST WORK:

Our Lost Creek

The first European settlers called the bowl-shaped valley "Oley" after the Lenni Lenape name for the region, "Olink," meaning kettle or hole. English Quakers, French Huguenots, and especially German immigrants were attracted to the valley's fertile farmland, abundant springs and flowing streams. These fertile fields and water sources still provide for family farms 300 years later. One of those family farms, "R Lost Creek Dairy Farm", has been run by the Schlegel family since 1935. 

After the creek dried up in the 1970s, the farm was part of a pioneering effort to put Oley township on the National Register of Historic places, which protects it from development that would further change the landscape of the valley.

"Our Lost Creek" retells the story of the Schlegel's Farm and outlines the impact it had in the historic Oley Valley.

Montgomery County Jazz Festival at the Berman Museum

Jazz vocalist, Chelsea Reed and the Fair Weather Band, performed on the lawn at the Berman Museum's night of swing as part of the Montgomery County Jazz Festival. The free, community event also featured a swing lesson for students at Ursinus College and community members in the surrounding area. Dancers started at sunset and danced well into the moonlit dusk.
