Whether you need a new headshot, want to capture your children before they change, or simply want to have photographs of yourself you actually like, you're in the right place. I've been a professional photographer for more than ten years and have the experience, background and education to make this an easy and wonderful experience for you.
Photo shoots can take place in my New Haven studio or "on location"- I regularly shoot in Connecticut, New York and Paris, so let me know where to meet you. If we're in the studio, your session will begin by meeting with my professional stylist to make sure you look and feel your very best, then I will guide you through the photo shoot so you never have to worry about how to move or pose. In the end you will have photographs to treasure for the rest of your life.
Meaningful. Beautiful. Authentic.
Whether you need a new headshot, want to capture images of your kids before this phase of life fades away, or want to finally have beautiful images of yourself, you are in the right place. I believe your experience taking the photos is as important as the photos themselves, so I spend time to make sure your experience is wonderful. I've spent the last ten years developing my photographic style, so I encourage you to take a look through my portfolio and let me know if my style resonates with you. When done properly, photography is a wonderful experience that gives you lasting memories you'll cherish for a lifetime. Let's get started!
Get in touch so we know what you're looking for!
We'll set up a consult to plan everything in advance, from location to style.
Prior to your session, relax while our stylists do your hair & makeup!
We'll guide you through the whole session- all you have do do is show up.
Order your new photos & get ready to take them home!
I opened the photography studio ten years ago in New Haven, Connecticut, passionate about the power of a photograph to connect us to each other, to our memories, and even to our own reflections. I invite you to come to the studio to experience a photo shoot with me and my team- I'd love the opportunity to take the best photograph you've ever seen of yourself.
When I'm not at the studio I love to travel, capturing new photographs for my fine art series. My work can be found in private collections around the world, and has been featured in The New York Times, CNN, National Geographic, Forbes, MSN, and Connecticut Cottages & Gardens. I am a fellow at Yale University's Morse College and live in New Haven with my husband, Paul Van Tassel, and our three kids.
