 About me

My grandfather was the first to get me interested in photography. More than the actual process of taking pictures, I just really, really wanted to get my hands on that camera I was not allowed to touch.

My parents were encouraging of my creative aspirations, and at college I studied fine arts. Though photography was not an available major, I still remained fond of my cameras, taking photos whenever I could, often using them for inspiration for sketches and paintings.

 Later, I followed a short stint in modeling, soon realizing my passion for creativity was being stifled. I realized I longed to be on the other side of the camera, and started pursing classes, workshops, etc., anything to learn more about photography.

My first jobs were small, and many for nonprofit organizations, which I continue to do today. I take every opportunity I can to grow and learn, because with digital photography, as with all art and technology, there is always some new, something different, ever changing. And I like change.

So here I am, many years later, living in NJ with my wonderful husband and 5 dogs (yes, 5!). I have a passion for working with people, parties and pets. My specialty is in portrait and event photography. I prefer to be out in the world, shooting real life situations, rather than confined to a studio. I also take pride in the application of eco-friendly practices to my workflow and my personal life. For every session, I add a personal touch, patience, a sense of humor, and compose a visual story. Like my tagline states, "Who has time for a thousand words?" Let the picture tell it for you!
