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: the eyes have it

I’m really looking forward to checking out all the entries for this week’s theme, “the eyes have it” over at I Heart Faces! When I saw the theme this week, I knew exactly what photo I was going to post. This is one of my all time favorite images of my daughter. Not only does […]

time keeps on slippin, slippin, slippin …

Did anyone get the Steve Miller reference in the title or am I just dating myself?  As we’re finally heading into some warmer weather, I was thinking of all the concerts we’ve been to, many in the summer.  Growing up in Plattsburgh, I spent much of my time at SPAC and I can’t even count […]

i heart faces: slice of life

Things have been a little crazy around here and I’ve missed a few weeks over at I Heart Faces.  And when I say I’ve missed them, I’m not only talking about not participating in the weekly challenge, I have seriously missed all the inspiration over there!  When I saw this week’s theme was “Slice of […]

i heart faces: anything but a face

Of course we all love looking at faces over at I Heart Faces but this week the theme is “Anything But a Face”.  As usual, I dug into my files looking for a particular image from a client session, this time one of a newborn’s tiny feet decorated with Mom and Dad’s wedding rings.  But […]

Project 52, Week 8

This week’s Project 52 theme over at MCP Actions is “The View From Here”.  I caught my daughter checking out a family of eagles with the binoculars while we were away this weekend and thought it would be an interesting take on the theme this week. 🙂

shilo

Meet Shilo!  He’s a 3 month old, English Bulldog who came to our good friends from a wonderful breeder in Philly who they found through the MidAtlantic Bulldog Rescue.  Shilo’s dad is a “Best-in-Breed” Show Dog but as impressive as that is, what matters most is that his parents are strong, thriving purebred bullies; which means […]

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 […]

The kids and I had so much fun baking (and eating, ahem) like maniacs in preparation for a house full this Christmas! 🙂
