Hello + Welcome

An English & Education major at Barnard College, grad student at Columbia Teachers College, then a high school English teacher for several years, I always tell people that I never had a creative bone in my body…until I met my husband and we created some kids – ha! Something unlocked in my mind and heart, and I was filled with a longing to craft with my hands something that would reflect and do justice to the overwhelming emotions of my heart. So I picked up a camera and started capturing the moments I wished I could hold and savor – my daughters (finally) getting along and laughing together, my husband helping the girls ride their bikes, beloved friends getting married and having kids of their own, the list goes on… I realized that this desire to capture raw emotions and intimate moments and then make them into works of art during post-processing has truly become a passion I want to pursue and use as a blessing for others.

Please look through my portfolio and feel free to contact me with any inquiries. I'm based in Westchester, NY. My style is natural and journalistic, so I like to focus on candid and real interactions between my subjects as well as myself as the photographer. I would love to get to know you and your story so the images captured can uniquely reflect you and the ones you love.
