I’ve been happily photographing hearts … both big and little ones … since 2007. I’m so glad you’re here.
I photograph families, kids, babies, and high school seniors. Check out my portfolio.
I also photograph weddings in upstate New York and Delaware (and every in between). I’m grateful for auto focus because I cry through every. single. one. I LOVE to travel for weddings. Check out my wedding portfolio.
I wasn’t quite sure about that photo above. My pants are questionable and my hair isn’t done. I thought about putting on some makeup and having a real picture taken (not one taken by an 8-year-old) so it could scream out … !!PROFESSIONAL!! But, pants and all, I’m putting this one up because it shows perfectly how I feel about what I do … and the people I do it for. And if I’m really being honest with you, there’s only a 25% chance I’m going to show up to a photo shoot with my hair down and done.
I’m addicted to goat cheese and dark chocolate. I have way too many plants. I try hard to stay away from caffeine. (Chocolate is caffeine-free, right?) I live in a little abode with a creek running behind it. I have a serious thrift shopping addiction. I’m considering buying a mini golden doodle. And most days you’ll find me wandering somewhere in the woods … even if it’s just for 45 minutes.
I’m big on motivation. Check out my collection of motivational articles for my fellow female photographers at dearfemalephotographer.com.
People come to me because they want pictures that do more than just capture a smiling face. I will give you that. But what I really want to give you are pictures of true expressions, laughter from deep within, and imagery that has feeling. I want to capture your heart.
People tell me over and over again that it’s incredibly stressful getting ready for picture day. I want to help you not worry so much. Come as you guys are … and we’ll play. We’ll have fun. We’ll laugh. And somewhere amid all the giggles, silliness, and everyday being, we’ll capture photos that you’ll treasure forever.
One of my absolute favorite parts of being a portrait and wedding photographer is using the world around me as my studio. I am an on-location photographer … which means I don’t have a studio with static backgrounds. Instead, I come to you! Or we can journey to a local park, lively downtown area, grab ice cream cones with sprinkles, or whatever scenario your heart can dream up so that we can capture images that tell the unique story of you.
I serve two main areas: the Hudson Valley, NY and Delaware.

I currently book all throughout the Hudson Valley! This is a new(ish) area for me and I absolutely LOVE it! I also book sessions in NYC. Travel fees apply for certain areas.
From time to time, I announce travel sessions! I usually make my way out to San Diego in December or January. I also usually book sessions in Maine … typically in July. I’ll be sure to announce those dates when I have them. Additionally, I hope to add Paris and Florida sessions to the mix : ) Please feel free to inquire about travel sessions for your area.
