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 LOVE a good secret (& I’m really good at keeping them)! So when my dear old friend from high school called me a few weeks ago and told me under the strictest confidence that he was planning something BIG and needed my help, I was THRILLED! Chris and Amy are spending the month at […]

Did you know I am a certified sailor? I fell in love with sailing as a kid at summer camp, hopping on a boat at any opportunity for years, and finally did a course and got certified right in NYC, on the Hudson! Sailing is thrilling and peaceful at the same time. Recently I’ve added […]

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 […]
