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.

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, I know I hate it.  There’s barely one or two pictures of myself that I actually like, if that.  So I give Adele so much credit for making this a priority, especially as this creative powerhouse balances life at home as wife, mom, daughter and life in the corporate world as co-owner of Parise Marketing Group.  Adele is beauty inside and out and that exudes throughout her family!

We met at her Mom’s house and I had arrived a few minutes early to walk around the property before starting our session.  It was late in the season and most of the trees had already lost their leaves, much of the color was already gone.  But you could feel the presence of her Dad through all the details, the care and hard work he had obviously put into the property over the years.  The beautiful tall trees out back brought an early shadow and it got real cold, real quick.  We didn’t have a chance to get to the Harley in the garage I was hoping to pull out or the tractor I’m sure the kids would have loved playing on while I snapped a bunch of photos.  But we captured what was important to Adele … the people, the family, the moments, just being.
