Hi!  Thanks for visiting my blog, where I post about recent photography shoots, my travels, and things I feel might be interesting to you!  Comments are appreciated!  Happy reading!


Lately I’ve been thinking I would love to offer documentary photo sessions in addition to my portrait sessions, to capture a unique activity each family loves to do together. The Liners were totally on board, and decided to make mom Stasia’s famous white chocolate chip cranberry walnut cookies! The kids love baking with their mom, […]

Oh sweet Cecilia!! This baby is the calmest and quietest newborn I’ve photographed yet; a total dream to photograph! Both of her parents are absolutely head over heels in love, naturally! What a beautiful family! Cecilia’s nursery is just precious; I loved all the creams and soft textures. I love photographing the tiny details that […]

Baby Beau is a total sweetheart! I’m so happy for the Cooper Family; it’s been a wonderful journey, photographing their engagement, wedding, maternity, and his first day at the hospital. A week old, Beau is already growing more handsome by the day! Heather and Dion have picked up parenthood quite naturally; they’re cherishing every moment […]

I always love photographing sweet little newborn babies! I’m so lucky to photograph these precious little ones with their adoring parents in the first few weeks of their lives! Little Cole’s mom and dad invited me to their beautiful home on the Upper West Side to photograph their new family. All 4 of the grandparents […]

Last summer I had the pleasure of photographing the marvelous Metz family up in Traverse City, Michigan.  Back then, they were a trio.  Last month, when I photographed them at their awesome home in East Grand Rapids, they were a quartet!  Little Miss Matilda joined Team Metz earlier this year and is the perfect addition […]

I was overjoyed to photograph sweet baby Westley shortly after his arrival! I loved photographing Trisha’s maternity portraits just last month! It seems like just yesterday I was photographing Trisha and Tim’s first baby’s arrival! Little Ivy is now a big sister! I think she’s very curious about her baby brother. Tim is such a […]

New Orleans is one of my favorite cities — it has such an interesting history and is rich with traditions even today.  The colors, sounds, smells and flavors are all so unique!  I’ve been there 4 times now, (remember this fun engagement session a few years ago?), and was crazy excited to fly down again […]

One of the best parts of my job as a photographer is getting to know families and watching them grow.  I was so so excited when Connie and Ricky told me they were expecting a baby boy only a year after I photographed their first born, little Ava!  They are such amazing parents — very […]

It’s so so fun to watch babies grow up.  I have been so fortunate to photograph Cate as a newborn, 1 year old, and just recently when she turned 2!  She keeps getting cuter and cuter, and my time with her in Kansas City, Kansas last month showed me her personality is becoming even more fun! […]

Most people who know me know I have a little obsession with twins, so I was super excited to photograph the wonderful H family in Brooklyn right before Christmas last month.  We took the photos in their beautiful, light-filled apartment with amazing huge windows looking out onto Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens!  I loved capturing the […]
