I was born in New Jersey as one of four sisters in a house filled with joy, mayhem, and incredible affection. Always the first to dive into the arts, my childhood creative passions led me to Skidmore College, where I majored in Art History and Studio Art. It was during this time that I began my journey into wedding and photojournalism, and I’ve been behind the lens ever since.
I love to capture the special celebrations in a person’s life, documenting an engagement, a marriage or a special birthday. No less important are the moments we live day to day—playtime in the backyard, first and last days of school, a family reunion, a new home. These moments together portray a lifetime and are memories that deserve to be cherished.
Documenting people as they interact and moments as they unfold is my passion. I have been a professional wedding and portrait photographer for over ten years and photo shoots still make me warm and fuzzy inside!
Besides my love of my family, my farm, and of course, photography, one of the first things you’ll probably notice about me is that I love to laugh—and I love to make my clients laugh too! Great photography is all about capturing unfettered, natural moments without fussing or thinking, and I don’t mind looking silly or getting my hands dirty to capture honest, unposed portraits and big, beautiful belly laughs.
Long anticipated events are over all too quickly. Babies grow into teens much too soon. And loved ones cannot always be nearby. The creative process of photography allows me to turn the magical yet fleeting moments a family gets to share into memories that stay celebrated.
Family relationships are so much fun to witness and document, and it’s an honor that I get to create these visual keepsakes for you. Whether it’s the promise of forever between a husband and wife, the sleepy smile of a newborn, or the giggle of two siblings during a tickle fight—let me take you on a portrait adventure full of laughter and memorable moments you’ll get to revisit again and again!
I have been published in the DailyMail, The New York Times, AOL publications, WellWed Magazine, and 201 Magazine. I travel between New York and California frequently throughout the year and am always willing to discuss travel options or your special session!
