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!


The other day I was at the Ritz Carlton Beach Club at Lido Key with some friends and we realized that a couple had just gotten married up the beach with some friends! It seemed super casual, and I sadly did not notice a photographer! I had my camera with me, so I popped over […]

I’m so happy to have met the sweet Sherlocks! Kristen contacted me about photographing her soon-to-arrive twin boys in January, and we also decided to do a maternity portrait session while I was in NYC this month! It was an unexpectedly rainy day so we decided to begin in their beautiful apartment. Kristen and Will […]

I just love the Fort Myers and Sanibel area; it’s so gorgeous, with a seemingly endless number of locations for family photography sessions. I loved photographing Mary and Charlie on a little island right off their beautiful neighborhood of Gulf Harbour Yacht and Country Club. Originally from Virginia, this sweet Southern couple are clearly enjoying […]

Karin and Dennis have been “girlfriend and boyfriend” for 17 years, living in two different states (Massachusetts and Rhode Island). This past summer they moved in together in a beautiful new home in Venice, Florida and decided to finally get married! They asked me to take wedding portraits around their beautiful neighborhood before the intimate […]

A few months ago, my sister and her long-term boyfriend got engaged while on vacation in Mexico! We all celebrated together at our parents’ house up on Lake Michigan. I begged Christina and Tim to let me take their engagement photos, but neither of them like to be in front of the camera. But one […]

I’ve known Jessica since she was a teenager, and while photographing her engagement session, it occurred to me how absolutely quick time flies!   She is about to graduate grad school as a Physician’s Assistant and is engaged to marry her high school sweetheart, Alex, who is about to graduate from law school!  I’m so excited to […]

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 […]

I have a confession to make.  I LOVE being part of a secret!  So when Brett (with the help of his lovely sister Kelse) contacted me asking if I can help document his proposal to his girlfriend on vacation in Central Park — and she was completely unaware of this plan — I immediately said […]

I knew I was going to get along well with Heather and Dion from the second we met.  They had warm smiles despite the freezing temperatures and such positive energy!  We had fun taking their engagement photos amongst the Christmas trees, and when I found out they’re not only both from Michigan, but that Heather […]

Ahhh young love!  There’s nothing like it 🙂  Last month we had a gorgeous snowfall here in NYC, and I convinced Amanda and her boyfriend, Connor, to let me do a quick photo shoot with them in Central Park.  It had been a long time since I got to photograph in the snow, so it […]
