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!

WELCOME!

Christmas in NYC is so special; there’s just a magical feeling in the air that all can feel. Of course it’s also a perfect time to visit New York with kids — to explore, shop, and kick off the holiday festivities — and have your family portraits taken! The Morgan Family decided to visit Manhattan […]

It’s officially summer and I have kicked it off by sailing in the Mediterranean.  Not bad, eh?  😉  For this month’s 30 minutes photo collection, I decided to show you what it looked like sailing into the harbor at Vernazza, one of the 5 towns that make up the famous “Cinque Terre” coastline.  I truly […]

I know I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again and again — I absolutely love watching families grow and being able to document their years with my camera 🙂  The Altland Family of Louisiana is a perfect example!  Two years ago I photographed them at their home when I was down in New […]

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 […]

Friends are great.  Old friends are even better.  I met Elisabeth and Tom 14 years ago when we all studied abroad together in the charming southern French town called Cannes.  Thanks to social media we’ve been able to stay in touch, as soon after graduation Elisabeth and Tom married and moved to Copenhagen.  A little […]

When I found out I was flying to the United Arab Emirates to photograph the lovely O’Reilly Family in Dubai, I remembered that one of my favorite New Jersey families had moved to Abu Dhabi a year or so ago, so I reached out to them.  You remember the Bongiovannis —  I photographed them shortly […]

One of the best parts of my job as a photographer is not only being able to watch special families grow, but being asked to photograph them!  Last month I flew down to Tampa, FL again and Frances & Susan asked me to photograph their expanding family 🙂  Last year, I met their little boy […]

Fiona used to live in NYC before she moved to San Francisco and married Jason.  Like everyone who has lived here and moved away, the city holds a special place in her heart, so I think it’s so awesome that she asked me to photograph her family’s first vacation here as a way to preserve […]

Well, this post is going to wrap up my series from Africa!  It was quite an adventure and I’m so happy I was able to share it with you all! Our last leg of the trip was in Cape Town, which is a super cool city!  I’m always a fan of a port city, and […]

“Hey Colleen — do you have a waterproof camera?”  — Yes… why do you ask? “Oh!  We’re going to go cage diving with Great White Sharks in Africa!  Pack your camera!”  — OH.MY.GOD.  OH.MY.GOD.  OH.MY.GOD I am crazy lucky to be able to experience such amazing adventures like this!  Seeing these enormous sharks literally inches […]
