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.

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 collage that is already up in Mom’s new place! Thankfully Dad was able to join us before hopping a train back to the city.

This family is near and dear to me in so many ways.  Mom is an incredibly talented artist and the kind of friend that is with you for life … no matter what.  Her boys came to her in one of the most inspiring adoption stories I’ve heard (and trust me, I’ve heard many).  Dad is a well respected physical therapist in the area who worked long nights right from the beginning so that he could live his dream of being a stay-at-home Dad.  Mom and Dad’s marriage dissolved a few years ago, but to look at this family of four (yes, they still consider themselves a family), you’d never know it.  They remain the best of friends whose commitment to co-parenting their children is unending.  The happiness that each of them has found separately has without a doubt breathed new life into this family.  I have so much admiration for them all and how lucky I am to be able to capture these moments in time for them.
