about the photographer

Hello, my name is Tricia, and I am a photographer. I've always loved photography for its unique ability to capture a moment, a feeling, a glance, a glimpse of some truth. For me, photographing people is the greatest challenge and greatest joy in photography.

I love photography, but children, well, children really fascinate me! I love the rapt attention babies pay to details others miss, the unchecked emotions of two year olds, the rambling narratives of four year olds, the self-contained logic of seven, the growing insightfulness of ten. As a Montessori teacher, I learned when to engage a child, and when to sit back and observe. Both of these skills also serve me well in photography, enabling me to witness and capture the true personality of a child. I greatly enjoy photo sessions, and children do too. I love to get down on the floor and play, see their treasures, hear their stories, discover their interests. One of the best parts of photographing children is watching them grow from year to year, really getting a chance to witness their lives.

When I'm not photographing little ones, there are a few other major exciting things in my life keeping me busy! I am the mother of a beautiful, brilliant and feisty young daughter, with whom I share many adventures great and small. I am a doctoral candidate at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, studying the intersection of cognitive neuroscience and education. My particular research interests are in the development of executive function in early childhood, which I study via neuroimaging.

The legendary photographer Annie Liebovitz said "When I say I want to photograph someone, what it really means is that I'd like to know them. Anyone I know I photograph." This is a feeling I know well, as my friends and family can attest to. Welcome to Time Stand Stil Photography, and please drop me a line if you'd like to get better aquainted.
