Formal Studio Portraits

This shoot was a bit of a departure for me, but man, I sure love it! It felt good to do something different that stretched me creatively, and make this mom’s dramatic vision come to life. On a technical level, to get the images to be both dramatic but still maintain a softness, I had to […]

February 2022: What to Wear for your Portrait Session

One of my goals for 2022 is to become more involved in the what to wear process.  It’s an important part of the success of the final product. From how you feel to the use of color, the clothes have a massive impact on your confidence and first impressions. First and foremost you must feel […]

Madison Square Park and the Flat Iron Building Family Photos

Do I ever get tired of shooting photos in the city? Nope. I am always fully reminded that I am a mid-west girl from Indiana when I work in the city.  The wonder of it all never wears off! I particularly love Madison Square Park because, well, the Flat Iron Building becomes a backdrop.  That’s pretty […]

Fun Mini Session at Local Park

This family. I can’t get enough of them. I love them so much, and appreciate that they are one of my legacy families. We worked together for the first time three years ago, when their little one was just a baby, and it was love at first sight. This young family is so warm and […]

Long Beach Family Photos

This shoot was so much fun, and one of the easiest ones I have ever done. That’s because Mom and Dad brought along a secret weapon…this very special and secret weapon was the best tool any parents has ever used during a shoot to keep a toddler happy! It worked every time I even pointed […]

Rockville Centre Lifestyle Family Photos

One of my favorite things about being a photographer is getting to hear people’s stories. Being allowed to be in their home with them is an extra-special thing and a true gift. As you see this family of three and they are happy and full of love, you would never know that they have been through […]

Nassau County Family Photos

You’ve already had photos at a park or two, you are not really beach people, or maybe you just want something a little different?  I got you!  How about a random parking lot under the LIRR in Lynbrook? That is what we did for this adorable and fun family.  Let me mention that this family, […]

Beach Club Family Photos

If there was a formula for a perfect family session (don’t we all wish!), it would probably go something like this: First, get the perfect morning session on the beach with a picturesque grassy sand dune. Then, add in the most gorgeous light, peeking right over the dune, and lastly, add in an adorable family […]

Birthday Photoshoot: Happy 30th!

You know what I love? When strong, empowered women celebrate themselves, for any reason! It’s so easy to forget to high five ourselves and give ourselves a shout out for any little or big thing. Girls, please remember how great you are outside of being a daughter, a mom, a friend, a wife, an employee, a […]

Robert Moses State Park Family Photos

The beauty of the ocean always gives me life, but this year, it is especially true. The craziness of what we are going through as a country is beyond stressful, and has been taxing emotionally and physically. Family time outside, in the fresh air, and with Mother Earth’s energy flowing from the water, is just […]
