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 because when we finally did meet up this Spring, these kids were the bomb!  Does anyone even say that anymore?  😉

Choosing images from my time with this family was hard!  I always try to narrow images selected for blog posts down to a few but I rarely manage to do that.  I typically use images my clients have expressed they love or ones I really like for some reason.  I’ll be honest, my favorites are not always those of my clients.  In fact, most often they’re not.  These girls kept me moving but we managed to capture some goodies so here’s a bunch to check out and decide for yourself.



It’s hard to believe that this little guy looked like THIS just 7 months ago!





Thank you all for another wonderful session!
