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!


Studio photography isn’t my usual style, but a few times a year I enjoy offering mini studio portraits for clients. This year I was lucky to photograph some pretty adorable kids, and pups as well! What they say is true… it’s SO much easier photographing kids than animals, but I love a challenge, and these […]

I’m so happy to have met the Bordonaro Family! They have the cutest little girl, Lily! We met at their lovely apartment overlooking the NYC skyline for some family portraits. I love this age! Full of smiles and personality! Kristen’s such a good mom! And the outfit she picked out for Lily? Ridiculously cute!! We […]

In the past, I’ve photographed the Perkins Family in Central Park and at their home in New Jersey, but this time we tried something new and met at a park on the Hudson River overlooking NYC! It was a gorgeous day and we had unobstructed views of the amazing skyline! As always, Kelley knocked it […]

In case you didn’t know already, I LOVE dogs! Big, small, young or old, whenever I see a pup I have to get close and pet it (after asking its human of course!). So when I was asked to create pet portraits at Gulf Harbour by a client, I was beyond thrilled! (Especially because this […]

It’s true that the majority of my family portrait sessions involve small children, but I truly LOVE when clients with adult children want to book photos of their families. It’s a great way to update the photos on your walls, as well as provide fresh headshots for social media, LinkedIn and other business sites, as […]

It was such fun to photograph sweet little Evie and her parents again! We met up in Central Park the afternoon of the NYC Marathon, and we could hear the cheering nearby and feel the excitement that embraces New York on such a gorgeous autumn day. I love when clients bring their beloved pets along […]

Baby Beau is a total sweetheart! I’m so happy for the Cooper Family; it’s been a wonderful journey, photographing their engagement, wedding, maternity, and his first day at the hospital. A week old, Beau is already growing more handsome by the day! Heather and Dion have picked up parenthood quite naturally; they’re cherishing every moment […]

How do I get so lucky that all of my clients are so fun and kind?!  I absolutely loved strolling through Central Park with the Rouse Family and their sweet pup on a gorgeous fall day.  The leaves were just starting to turn colors, but it was warm enough for Evie to run around and […]

Some photographers like to have a specialty, like photographing newborns, or food, or fashion.  I am not one of them.  I honestly like to photograph everything that inspires me and brings me joy!  So when I was asked to photograph someone’s horse, Skye, I thought, “Why not?” even though it was totally new to me. […]

A little while ago I popped down to DC to visit a very good friend, Melissa, for the weekend.  We spent an afternoon at one of Virginia’s lovely vineyards, and drove to her parents’ house for a delicious dinner (her dad is one heck of a chef)!  I’ve known this family for many, many years […]
