Life is a series of marvelous adventures! Some of my best adventures have been exploring new places, catching up with old friends and making new ones around the world! While I love to travel and feel energized in unfamiliar environments, I love the sweetness and comfort of coming home. I live in the small town of Southold, located on the beautiful North Fork of Long Island, where my husband (and Superman) and I have planted our roots and raised our family. My daughters Shelby and Meg share my curly hair, eagerness to explore and are taking the world by storm with their amazing energy and kind hearts. Shelby is in Japan as a recent graduate of UC Berkeley and newly commissioned Officer in the Navy and Meg is attending Temple University in Philadelphia on her continued mission to help others.
Photography is how I express myself. It is how I see the beauty in this world. I photographed weddings for over for ten years and had always been photographing life with a passion well before that. I am most comfortable when I am focused on creating images that show the joy, love, and beauty of the human connection that is so genuine. I have chosen to focus solely on portraits, engagement sessions and surprise proposals starting in 2018. The deep love mothers and fathers have for their children warms my heart in so many ways, the pure happiness of a surprise proposal that had so much pre planning and true love involved in it, the excitement a couple exudes when they are having their engagement session done and the kindness and admiration that extended families show for each other. These are the things that make my heart happy.
My friends would describe me as a spunky and fun-loving kind of gal. I love to put on a colorful outfit with the right earrings, necklace and shoes, as it makes me feel like I can rule the world. I love to laugh and feel happiest when catching up with friends over a good latte or a yummy ice cream cone.
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending my time getting my hands dirty in the garden, going out on the boat with my hubby and most importantly, making our house into a home.
I am a proud member of PPA, and Fearless Photographers
