About Me

I have always been passionate about the arts and photography and still have the old film camera my grandfather gave me at a young age. From that point on, I was hooked and spent all the time I could with camera in hand or in a darkroom. In college, I majored in Fine Arts, emphasis Photography and Environmental Science (my career path until children). After taking time off to raise kids and many years of volunteering my photography services at my children’s schools, charity events and for friend’s and family, I decided to officially start my own business.


I am a hopeless romantic. I LOVE love and I LOVE people, but what really excites me is LOVE STORIES. From the start, I provide a custom personalized experience in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. My style is natural, fun and unobtrusive. There are hundreds of stories within the story of a wedding, event or portrait session and I want to capture them all. These true candid moments and all the little details together tell an emotional story about the people and spirit of the day. Sensitivity and experience have given me the necessary skills to anticipate and capture collections of genuine images through a delicate balance of composing images and discreetly capturing those quiet, intimate moments that are so often missed.


I have professional equipment as well as backup equipment and liability insurance. I am a member of a number of professional organizations including the Professional Photographers of America (PPA), the Professional Photographers Society of New York (PPSNY) and Hudson Valley Professional Photographers Society of New York (HVPPSNY). I also am honored to be a volunteer photographer for several wonderful non-profit organizations, including Hearts Apart, (www.heartsapart.org); The Tiny Sparrow Foundation, (www.tinysparrowfoundation.org); and Capturing Hopes (www.capturinghopesphoto.org). Please check them out when you can, they are all dedicated to providing professional photography services to families in need of lasting memories.


I am always interested in meeting new people and would love to hear your story. If you have any questions that are not covered, please feel free to call or email me directly. It is a privilege and honor to be trusted to creatively capture the joy, connections and emotions in photographs that will become a family heirloom. I would love to capture your unique story!


I look forward to hearing from you!
