Hello there!

I am a photographer specializing in family and wedding portraiture. My natural light studio is located in Highland and I enjoy shooting in the surrounding areas of the Hudson Valley. My life is a journey which includes a wonderful husband & three little people, ages 5, 7, and 9. I have always loved capturing memories with my camera. I picked up a class in college to learn the basics, but it wasn't until after I had my first daughter that I really started shooting every day. After working as an elementary school teacher, I switched gears to photography. I have been dedicated to learning all about it by attending workshops, classes, and shooting as much as I can. Life is hectic but I wouldn't have it any other way. I can't get through my day without chocolate, and at least one good laugh, usually provided by one of my children. My style could be described as candid, playful, sometimes detailed, and always natural. My main focus is to make people feel comfortable and allow them to go about their day while I capture precious moments they can enjoy for many years.




Rhinebeck Summer Wedding

Posted on July 4, 2014

On a beautiful June afternoon, they prepped, watched a little World Cup action, and prepped some more. Both of them thrilled with what was about to transpire, the emotions were pure and raw. They shared small love letters before the ceremony, and even I was holding back a tear or two. They married on Jessica’s Aunt and Uncle’s private property in Rhinebeck. It was a gorgeous day, complete with a Mariachi band to serenade all of us. They had a bunch of friends and family come all the way from Mexico for the affair, and it was wonderful to see everyone enjoying themselves. Jessica and Alejandro are truly in love. Did I mention they are awesome dancers? Cheers to you two..and many more!

A Grandview Affair on the Hudson

Posted on June 20, 2014

When they met at work a few years ago, who would have ever imagined this day would come? Stacy and Michael’s wedding at The Grandview in Poughkeepsie was a magical day full of memories, dancing, and great times. I enjoyed capturing their day. Thank you to Danielle Kolachik and Margrit Wenzel for helping me tell their story.

Boys Will be Boys..

Posted on May 22, 2014

I met this spunky group of boys on a crisp April morning and they clearly share a wonderful bond with each other. I love how they always have their arms around one another, and their expressions were priceless!
