"The greatest thing you'll ever learn
Is just to love and be loved in return" ~Nature Boy, Nat King Cole. This is the essence of why I photograph life’s precious moments, to capture the love in an image, to cherish forever.
Over the last 15 years, I have enjoyed capturing client’s special moments from weddings, to newborn, to families. It is an honor to watch people evolve from a couple to suddenly a family of four! Its truly a gift for me to see how love grows and expands over time…and to be able to capture that love for my client's families is priceless.
I am so grateful to have a studio in Ocean Grove, NJ…walking distance from the beach. This enables me to provide studio shoots as well as beach portraits easily for my clients. Being located at the Jersey shore also has it’s advantages, our beautiful beaches, as well as parks nestled along the coast. Our studio also provides on location sessions at homes, parks, and the city as well!
I guess you could say I live my life similar to "la vie en rose", or looking at the world through rose colored glasses. My camera is an extension of my heart and allows me to convey through art, the beautiful world I see everyday.
Becoming a mother was a life-changing event for me. Suddenly time started flying by at lightning speed. My little babies' first year passed by in the blink of an eye…and photos have been my time capsule. I love being able to give my clients the same feeling, knowing that a family portrait is hanging on their walls… reminding them of beautiful, priceless memories. And if we are being honest, the craziness that is being a parent! The good, the silliness, and even the crazy is all part of our wonderful story.
When I am not taking pictures, I am most likely dancing around my kitchen making dinner, crafting, sewing outfits, decorating, traveling, watching BBC, hanging with my hubby, three kiddos, and woofers (my 2 dogs).
