I believe in the importance of classic portraiture combined with the precious, candid moments of a newborn baby, a whimsical child, or glance at the bride and groom - a first look, an innocent expression, a joyful smile. My objective is to bring warmth to the heart and joy the soul every time you glance at your images.
I photographed my first wedding as an assistant while in college.  After graduating from college with a degree in photography, I continued to photograph and exhibit in New York City. Through my experiences working with art galleries, art fairs, art columnists, artist's studios and portrait photographers, my vision came into focus. As my work developed both technically and stylistically, my passion for photographing people drove me to focus on portrait and wedding photography.
In 2010 I opened my own studio. Since then, I've photographed everything from newborn babies to generational family portraits. It is my privilege to be welcomed into the lives of my brides, mothers, children and families as they celebrate life!
