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.

New Paltz Engagement

Posted on August 28, 2014

A gorgeous couple and I took a stroll through New Paltz recently for their love story session.  They are clearly in love and compliment each other so beautifully that I can’t wait to photograph them on one of the most important days of their lives.  We had a great time walking through town, checking out Inquiring Minds and reading a little.  I thought it was so cool as I was looking through my photos that my friend’s Stefan Bolz’s new book, The Fourth Sage, made it into one!

Then we headed up to Moxie Cup and had some cupcakes and coffee.  Because who doesn’t love a Moxie Cup?

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.
