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!


I’m sure you, like most others, have boxes of loose photos, albums filled with old memories, or even heirlooms passed down from your parents and grandparents.  If you’ve wondered what in the world you should do with all of these family treasures, I’d love to offer my expertise! I offer digital scanning services in addition […]

It sure feels like the world has turned upside down this year, doesn’t it? As a non-essential small business, I am doing my part to stop the spread of Covid-19. As of last month I suspended all of my scheduled photo sessions until the health authorities feel it is safe. I REALLY miss it! Being […]

I’m sure most of you already know how much I LOVE the Modern Luxe Albums I design and create for my clients, and how I wholeheartedly believe everyone needs one in their life, to display their favorite images. What you might not know is that I am happy to create these incredible albums not just […]

There’s nothing more important than family! I hope you and your family are safe and healthy during this surreal time. It feels like the world has turned upside down, doesn’t it? During this time of self distancing, I’m hearing about so many families finding more time for connection and joy, spending time together in ways […]

I use an incredibly well-established and talented company, available […]

Is there anything sweeter than a family with a newborn baby? This lovely family had me over to their beautiful apartment on a blustery, snowy day in NYC recently. Entering their home, I immediately felt their warmth and friendliness! Baby Romi had arrived the week before yet this little family of 3 felt like they’ve […]

Winter in Florida… supposed to be warm, mild weather, right? The morning of the Louis Family’s portraits was in the low 50s and a bit windy! That’s SUPER cold for Floridians… but this family was amazing!! They traipsed around the University of Tampa campus with me downtown for an hour without coats (well, lucky Sal […]

I’ve been photographing the Brown Family for years, and let me tell you.. this family is FUN! Amelia and Lucas have so much energy, and a million looks for my camera. Their awesome mom, Desiree, really wanted to get some 3 year old portraits of Amelia, and figured I could take some cute ones of […]
