lead photographer & creative director
Life goes by us all so quickly, but photographs quietly hold our moments still to look back on for the rest of our lives. Whether I'm capturing a birthday portrait, a headshot for a new job or a couple in love, those moments illustrate this moment as the next chapter begins. Memories are one thing you can never get back, so I encourage you to reach out and let us know what we can capture for you.
Life goes by quickly, but photographs hold our most precious moments still.
When people look at a photograph, they rarely recognize the effort that went into creating it. In fact, that's actually the point! Photographers want their photographs to look effortless. In reality, that "effortless" quality takes practice, experience, a steady hand and a wonderful client experience- most especially when you're working with people who aren't used to being in front of the camera. I spent the last 15 years building a beautiful studio, a great client experience, and a strong portfolio, all of which I continually refine to ensure we offer you the very best. We take care of the details because understand how important they are and have the experience to handle them.
FINDING INSPIRATION FROM
Art, mother nature, vintage movies, good food & wine, and the world around me.
AT A GLANCE
cocktails & friends, every time. just me?
a little obsessed with everyday life- my family, my pup, lola...
I'm happiest in Paris. Left Bank. Always.
i splurge on art, accessories & beautiful flowers.
I began studying photography because I believe in the power of a photograph to connect us- to our friends & families, to our past, and even to our own reflections. Most people seem to have a box of old photos they never go through & their newer photos are in a virtual "box" on their cell phones & computers. How you print and experience your photographs is an equally important part of the process- both with your everyday snapshots and the photographs we create for you. We want to help you with all of it.
I've been in the beauty industry for 20 years, starting out at MAC Cosmetics where I learned the ins and outs of beauty. Since then I've worked with PBS, Lego & Fanduel, as well as a variety of celebrities. I started at ESPN in 2011 and have been working with their on-air talent ever since. I really enjoy helping women achieve a look that makes them feel beautiful and comfortable. In addition to working in the studio and doing makeup for brides, I offer makeup lessons to clients.
Chocolate, creativity, kindness, good food & wine, quiet days at home and vintage anything.
Hustle culture, complicated travel, spam, updating software and fruit flies.
agree? we're probably a great fit.
