I'm Abigail (She/Her)! I'm so happy to virtually meet you! I love podcasts, NASA missions, and iced coffee year-round. When I'm not working as a photographer, I'm giving newborns their first hearing screening at the hospital, or writing, performing concerts around the house, and making travel itineraries.


I've always had a camera in my hand, and I've owned my own business for nearly a decade. Telling stories and creating lasting relationships with my clientfriends is what it's all about.

Some things that define me are...

I travel as much as I can, whether it be with family, friends, or flying solo. I'll choose mountains over beaches any day, and I have a deep love of national parks. I'm always up for learning about new cultures, tasting new foods, and having new experiences.

As an ENFP, enneagram 2, HSP, and empath, I find myself drawn to people. This has led me to other careers as a licensed massage therapist, labor & postpartum doula, and newborn hearing screener aside from photography.

Loud & Proud

I have no problem being loud about the issues that matter to me! Being a queer woman, I'm most often outspoken about the LGBTQ+ community, and worked closely with Annapolis Pride. I'm also involved in conversations about human rights, body neutrality/positivity, and mental health.


From initial outreach to planning meetings and the day of, Abigail really goes above and beyond to make you feel taken care of. We were also overjoyed to find a vendor who really matches and leads with progressive values. Her work looks stunning and bright, capturing the best moments from our wedding day and moments we didn't get to see. Every time we get to relive those moments, Abigail's vivid work bring back so many memories, and they make us so happy."

My Philosophy

Beyond delivering a gallery, I specialize in two things - education and connection.


In prioritizing education, I can help my clients find the best fit for them. I don't want to sell you anything you don't want or need, and I want my pricing to be available and transparent. In addition to photography itself, I want you to feel ready to take on your session or big day with confidence.

My favorite part of this job is the people. Always has been, always will be. The connections I've made over the years are incredibly special to me. I want to feel like a friend when you spend time in front of my lens and break down that barrier between photographer and client. One of the most amazing parts about this job is getting to work with folks through the years and watch their love and family grow. If you're investing in me, trust that I'll be investing in you, too.
