Hello! I'm Megan.
I'm a writer, photographer, and creator from Wallingford CT.
I've been writing for as long as I can remember, and I've been a professional portrait photographer for over a decade. It might seem odd to combine these aspects of myself into one place on the internet, but I'm really passionate about authenticity both personally and professionally. My writing and photography are both expressions of my creative life and work.
I started my photography journey as a teenager, taking photos for Lifetouch, and then assisting private studios with events and portrait sessions. As I built my personal portfolio I began taking on my own clients, and haven't looked back since. As a creator, I love the play of light, shadow, and color in photos. As a human I love giving people beautiful images to treasure for their lives and the lives of their children and families for generations. I'm especially passionate about helping everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera and telling each unique story through photos.
I've been writing and journaling for as long as I can remember. Journaling turned to blogging when my family got dial-up internet, and I discovered Xanga. (Which I still miss, and mourn the death of, along with AOL Instant Messenger.) I was inspired to write my story so far in my book Dear Sister. Dear Sister shares my journey out of fundamentalist Christianity into a more expansive understanding of Divinity and myself. Of course, it's been four years now since I wrote Dear Sister, you can find more of my more recent thoughts on my blog.
