I see the world in pictures

As a third generation photographer, I come by this passion naturally, always noticing the light and the smallest details.

One of my earliest memories is working in the darkroom with my father in the basement of our house.

My journey led me to teaching. After earning an M.A. in art education, I taught art & photography in NJ & NYC middle and high schools.

When my first daughter was born, I was determined to savor every fleeting moment of her and our lives together as a new family. Most days were a blur, but capturing those salient moments helped me remember what it was like at that time. This inspired me to open a new chapter in my life as a photographer.

I love capturing genuine, documentary style images of children & families. I am thrilled to share my passion with your family.
