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!


Being a photographer is wonderful; it’s my dream job and I pinch myself often that I’ve made this my life’s career. But it can also be lonely at times, spending the majority of my work time behind my computer or at my desk. I’ve been so lucky to connect with a number of amazing photographers […]

There’s nothing like December in Manhattan!  Once I get past the throngs of tourists, ridiculous traffic jams, and bouts of claustrophobia, I can’t help but smile at how festive the city becomes each year.  I’ve been spending the last few weeks exploring the quaint Christmas markets that pop up around the city, admiring the department […]

One of my all time favorite families (I’m biased because I think of them as my second family…) asked me to photograph their kids for their holiday card! Due to the older “kids” schedules with college classes and internships, we had to schedule their portraits well after the sun went down. So I met them […]

I grew up in Florida and didn’t get to experience the magic of a Snow Day! (Yes we had hurricane days… but that’s not nearly as fun). I was delighted to wake up on the day of the Toledo Family’s portrait session to discover it was snowing and not about to stop! We began our […]

It makes me so happy to photograph families year after year! Do you remember the Cooper Family? They’re awesome! And they were totally up for a snow day photo session for their holiday card this year – so fun!! It feels like I was photographing Candace and Michael’s wedding just yesterday! Michael decided today was […]

You all know by now that one of my favorite things about living in New York City is the access to all of the amazing museums and galleries here!  One of my favorite artists, David Hockney, recently had an exhibition open at the Met, which I have been anxiously awaiting for months!  I recently went […]

I have loved watching Sophia grow up in front of my camera! She is SUCH a fun spirit – so full of life, giggles, and playfulness! She has such a sweet bond with her dad! That photo below on the right? My favorite!!! Sophia’s little hand on her mom’s cheek is so lovely! Can’t you […]

Four years ago, I met up with Erin and Dan in this park in Brooklyn to photograph their engagement portraits. And now I had the pleasure of photographing their adorable little girl at their first family photo session! We began at the famous Jane’s Carousel for a quick merry go round, which I think has […]

I just about died when I saw Griffith’s ridiculously cute outfit for our quick family portrait session! He is the cutest little thing, and his parents are so sweet! Jennifer and Allan are such great parents; Griffith was feeling a bit under the weather for our photos, but they just went with the flow! Ending […]

I just LOVE the Liner Family, and I LOVE the bright colors we were able to capture throughout their portrait session! Fall is by far my favorite season, with the crisp air and colorful leaves, and it was absolutely gorgeous during our session at Sharon Woods Park in Ohio! Stasia always picks out the best […]
