life's too short.  get in front of the camera. it'll be fun, i promise!

I love turning your time in front of my camera into lasting memories in the most beautiful way possible.  Each photo session or event I photograph is unique, which ensures a truly personalized experience!

Whether I spend an hour on the beach at sunset with you and your family or am with you all weekend in Mexico capturing your destination wedding, I strive to create priceless images you'll hold close to your heart always.  It really is such an honor each and every time I photograph you.

I take my job seriously, although my sessions are anything but!  I know it can be nerve-wracking getting in front of the camera, but I promise our time together will have more of a fun, comfortable, "friends just hanging out" kind of vibe.  Are you ready for the most gorgeous photos of yourself ever?!

"colleen is a brilliant photographer and a creative genius."

"WE ABSOLUTELY ADORED WORKING WITH COLLEEN"

We absolutely adored working with Colleen for our maternity photos and newborn photos. She is so warm and inviting and instantly made us and our newborns feel comfortable which, in turn, made for natural, relaxed photos. Her use of light and composition created truly beautiful photos, even if they were just taken in our apartment or a rainy NYC street.

We absolutely LOVE our newborn photos and are so thankful that Colleen spent the extra time and effort to capture our twin boys so beautifully and naturally - no stuffy poses or costumes. We would absolutely would work with her again and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for beautiful family photos!

"the kids look forward to spending time with colleen"

Colleen is an amazing photographer! She has photographed our family several times since our first kid was born. Every time she has made it a fun experience while being able to capture each of our personalities. The kids look forward to spending time with Colleen and we never hear "no more pictures" from the kids when Colleen is behind the camera. We have always ended up with too many great photos to choose from to put up on the walls or use for our Christmas card. Colleen is genuinely a great person to just be around and spend time with.......the great photos are just an added bonus!

"colleen has a gift for bringing out the best in her subjects."

Colleen has a gift for bringing out the best in her subjects.  Our family brought some challenges to her shoot, from a daughter who would like to be in every shot, a husband who would prefer not to be in any, to active young twin boys.

Colleen made my daughter feel like a supermodel, actually got a real smile from my husband instead of his usual grimace, and even got both boys to cooperate at the same time! We are beyond happy with our photos!

"I absolutely love my senior photos"

I was so happy I got Colleen to take my senior portraits!  She made me feel so comfortable in front of the camera, which let my true personality come out.
Colleen had such great ideas for locations and helped me to pose in flattering and comfortable ways.  It was such a great experience and I absolutely love my senior photos!

My mom and I had a lot of fun and we love how everything turned out. Colleen also made it very easy to order prints and my album is AMAZING!. Can't wait to work with her again!

"the feedback has been amazing!"

Colleen is an exceptional photographer and storyteller. Looking professional is super important for nailing that first impression with a client. I tend to get very tense in front of cameras.

During our shoot Colleen used fun and creative techniques to put me at ease. The pictures turned out lovely and the feedback has been amazing. I think I've told 100 people about her photography!

"still swooning"

How many photographers do YOU know would spend HOURS shooting your wedding day and then go back to their room and post a first look so you can see how magical the rest of your photos will be? THANK YOU to the best photographer and friend ever!

I'm still SWOONING over our wedding photos and wishing I could go back and relive the entire day all over again. Feeling so grateful for our amazing photographer.  I'm just going to keep saying it... she's a MIRACLE WORKER and I feel so lucky to have worked with someone so sweet, so professional, and most importantly... someone who understands us so well!
