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.

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 […]

sledfest 2010

Brendan and Pete headed out early after having discovered the sweet spot for sledding the day before in our massive front yard.  It seems funny even calling it a “yard”, anything but “property” doesn’t seem an expansive enough of a term.  I miss our old yard … closer to the street, closer to neighbors, a […]

we did it! { hudson valley family photographer }

We pulled it off!  A huge high five to Mom for finding all ways here, there, and in between to keep these boys going on this freezing C.O.L.D day.  Between my (bad) jokes, bribery, and the trains, we captured some amazing shots for very last minute holiday cards (ahem!) as well as a rockin’ wall […]

what’s important { hudson valley family photographer }

This session was a long time coming and well worth the wait!  Having lost her father a little over a year ago, and realizing there are so few photos of him, Adele is determined to not let that happen to her and her family.  It’s often tough being on the other side of the camera, […]

silly sisters { hudson valley child photographer }

Hands down, this CT family was one of my favorite sessions this year!  I can’t say it was the most relaxing session because these girls kept me on my toes.  Not only were they full of energy but had lots of great ideas for funky poses and where we should head to next.  I loved […]

G family { hudson valley family photographer }

I was so happy to finally have the chance to spend a late afternoon with this busy family!  We had to move schedules around a bit as rain was in the forecast but it all worked out and we had a nice relaxing time walking and playing along the grounds.  Mom is ordering a large […]
