OWNEr / creator


I see myself as an unconventional and imaginative individual. For 27 years and still going strong, my primary passion

and business have revolved around operating my Wedding Photography Studio, known as Sage Studios Photography.

However, in 2015, I embarked on a significant change by joining my mother when she opened her gift shop, Loft Fifty 5.

Sadly, after eight years, we made the difficult decision to close that business in 2022.

As a Professional Photographer, I am drawn to unique and creative spaces that are open, airy, and unbounded by conventional

boundaries, yet still manage to evoke a sense of coziness. This can be a challenging task, especially when working in a space

without walls. Both my photography studio and the gift shop were initially established in the same converted mill building

situated in the Historic District of Manchester, NH. The location's rich history, coupled with its expansive 15 ft ceilings,

exquisite original hardwood floors, and floor-to-ceiling windows, bathed the space in an abundance of natural light throughout

the day, providing me with endless inspiration.

When it came time to name my new candle venture, I sought to merge the essence of these two concepts, leading to Loft Cottage Co.

Regardless of whether you reside in an open or cozy space, there is a certain harmony between them. I aimed for my designs to

embody a simple, clean, sophisticated, and timeless aesthetic that is free from fuss and distractions. This deliberate simplicity

ensures that your thoughts and mind find tranquility.

My candles are crafted from a luxurious blend of coconut and apricot creme, derived from cold-pressed coconut wax.

This wax is natural, non-toxic, and safe for your skin. Renowned as one of the finest and healthiest wax blends available,

its creamy texture enables a clean and slow burn, filling your home with incredible scents that are safe for you and your loved ones.

Additionally, I offer a range of high-quality Body Care Products and a thoughtfully curated collection of goods suitable for gifting.

In essence, my motto for Loft Cottage Co. is keep it simple, beautiful, and calm!
