My photography is very much an extension of who I am. I love people- I love working with them and ultimately helping them relax in front of the camera so we can capture a bit of their personality. In order to do that, I work with clients to help them feel confident in front of my lens, because when you are relaxed and confident, you are able to connect with the camera .Whether the person viewing your photographs is a new date, a potential employer, or many years from now a new generation of your own family, I want them to meet you for the first time in beautiful color, with authentic expression and emotion.

Very few things in life are more important than capturing beautiful images of your family. My family portrait sessions are designed to be low-stress and highly engaging because, as a mom of three, I know very well how stressful day-to-day life is already. I focus my lens in these sessions on your natural interactions because those moments are real and something it is difficult to capture yourself. In addition to the spontaneous moments, I generally suggest a few poses to capture you all together.
Each family session begins with an initial consult to help me get to know you a bit better and help me know what you are hoping to capture. From there, I will offer location and wardrobe ideas (and am always available to review your clothing selections if you like). I can also recommend hair and makeup stylists to make the day extra special. Following the session, I narrow the selection down to the best of the set and edit those by hand to ensure the highest quality images. I then invite you to the studio to review them and decide which photographs you would like to have in your life. The final products are something you will treasure for a lifetime, a beautiful memory of a moment frozen in time.
Family portrait sessions last approximately one hour and are $200. Prints, digitals and other products are ordered separately.
Signature Sessions are a dream come true for me. I spent this past year in Paris developing this style of portraiture which combines confidence, natural beauty, a bit of pampering, and breath-taking light. The photographs that we create are engaging, authentic, and stunningly beautiful. The sessions themselves are fun and engaging- and you are free to bring someone you would like to be shot with- whether it's your daughter, your best friend, or your spouse. My goal, quite simply, is to capture the very best portraits you've ever seen of yourself.
Each Signature Session begins with a consultation- either over the phone or in the New Haven studio. During the consultation, we'll go over your goals for the session (are you looking for something just for you? a gift for a family member?), and then begin looking at wardrobe that would bring that vision to life. After that, you're all done. I begin working on the creative- determining final wardrobe selections, backdrops we will use, and creating a plan that will pull it all together.
The day of the session you simply show up and we take care of the rest. You'll begin in hair & makeup where my team will ensure you look your very best. From there, we'll move into wardrobe and get started! I will guide you through different poses so you never need to worry about what to do and we will spend the next few hours taking our time and having fun. Following the session, I narrow the images down to the best of the set, and edit those images by hand to ensure the highest quality and attention to detail. I then invite you to come to the studio to review the images and decide what you love best. The final photographs are something you will treasure for a lifetime, a beautiful moment frozen in time.
Signature Sessions last approximately half a day and are $350. Prints, digitals, and other products are ordered separately.
Student sessions are all about you- who you are and your life at this point. I strive to capture photographs that show a bit of your personality, not just what you look like. For nearly all students, their lives will look very different in just a few short years, so my goal is to capture memories you and your family will treasure for a lifetime.
Each session begins with an initial consult so I can get to know you a bit better. We review things as general as your interests, and as specific as location and wardrobe. From there I begin working on the creative side- determining how to incorporate any specific interests you wanted to highlight, as well as finalizing the location and wardrobe. I am happy to recommend hair & makeup professionals, if you like, to make the day truly special.
Following the session, I narrow the images down to the best of the set (approximately 20 photographs) and edit the photographs by hand to ensure the beauty & quality of your images. Once the images are ready, I invite you to the studio to review the photographs and decide which ones you like best. There are no minimum orders, I want you have the photographs you love the most and nothing else.
Student sessions last approximately one hour and are $200. Prints, digitals, and other products are ordered separately.
