About me

Photography is a dream job for me!  I've loved all things creative for as long as I can remember.  I'd taken photography classes here and there but it wasn't until after we brought our son home in 2004 that I became a student of the art, reading everything I could get my hands on and talking to anyone who would talk to me about it.

After enjoying a successful 13 year career in Marketing for a major publishing company, I found myself wanting to take on the role of the creative vendors I was hiring.  I took the leap and left the corporate world to pursue some exciting design opportunities.  It was then that photography and documenting my own child's life through pictures became an addiction, a passion that I love to share with others.

As a Mom of two, I know how quickly time passes and how those memories we think we'll remember forever quickly fade over time.  Being behind the camera capturing moments of your lives, then coming home and creating pieces of art that will tell your story for generations to come has been such an incredible experience.  Every client, every session is different and unique so this job never grows old!

My most important job, however, is right here at home.  I'm a wife to an amazingly supportive husband (I should write that twice!), and an adoptive mom to two beautiful kids, Brendan (7) and Kyra (3), who keep me running but I wouldn't change a thing.  I'm also a daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, friend and neighbor, not always in that order but all major roles that make my life feel complete.

i heart faces: friendships

This week’s theme over at I Heart Faces is Friendships.  I wasn’t going to play this week because I’m just coming off an obsessive weekend of party planning for my 4 year old’s Enchanted Fairy birthday party.  Then I stumbled across this photo of my 7 year old and his buddies at a recent sleepover.

the “r” family {hudson valley family photographer}

This was the second time I’ve been this family’s photographer and to me, there is no better compliment than that.  Well, that and a good referral but you get the idea.  I was disappointed when the weather didn’t cooperate on our originally scheduled date but, as usual, I was reminded everything happens for a reason […]

the “c” family {hudson valley family photographer}

I received an email from this Mom last year after she saw the newborn session I had done for a friend of hers.  I was thrilled to hear her excitement about scheduling a session for her own family but disappointed we couldn’t make it work in the Fall!  We finally met up this Spring with […]

the boer family {hudson valley family photographer}

I remember the day I saw this family from across the street in my old ‘hood, each wearing a different bright colored shirt, and thinking what a perfect outfit for a family session!  Of course I later told that to Mom and we tossed the idea of family photos around here and there but busy […]

pre-prom fun

I was excited when my brother asked if I could come home to take pictures of my nephew, Justin, before his prom!  It’s always fun seeing first hand how prom attire changes from year to year but also stays the same in many ways.  I knew Kyra would love seeing all the girls in their […]

I Love Creative People!

Hello abandoned blog! I’ve been so busy with the family, school, sports, the house, the yard, and taking on a number of limited sessions that I haven’t had much time for blogging.  However, I was recently turned on to a lovely artist, LeAnne at Fritts Creative.  She creates name frames and word plates with photos […]
