I once read this verse: “The road of life twists and turns and no two directions are ever the same. Yet our lessons come from the journey, not the destination.” Such can describe this beautiful couple whose special milestone I was blessed to capture. Welcome the newlyweds, Rosemary and Anthony! This joyous occasion happened last […]

Being a mother means being completely and totally overwhelmed (in the best possible way) by love, joy, responsibility, and selflessness. Motherhood means: 👉sleepless nights, 👉big belly laughs, 👉caterpillars on the coffee table, 👉finger-painting in the kitchen, 👉stubbed toes, and 👉gapped toothed grins. Mothers’ day just went by, and I hope you all had a chance […]

Does the term “practice makes perfect” sound familiar to you? Well, Ashley and Brandon did just that when they rescheduled their wedding due to the pandemic. Instead, they pushed through with an amazing photoshoot that alpaca lovers would surely go “ga-ga” over. This cute couple moved to Yorktown Heights from Brooklyn a couple of years […]

A colorful session is just the right setup for a vibrant couple, so when Jason and Liz got engaged, you can definitely expect colorful things to come out of it! I met these two in New Haven, Connecticut. As a sweet, fun, and adventurous couple, they decided to go through Wooster Square, where they popped […]

I'm a born and raised California girl who loves the sunshine, ocean air and modern vibes. I have a degree in Interior Design (aka: a million Art classes taken in college) and have a true passion for Art in all forms. As a travel obsessed gal who recently moved across the country with her hubby and two pups, I've been having a blast photographing people, places and things that move me and have a unique story to share. My hubby, Cameron, is my second shooter on my team and we would love to meet you and document your big day! I am Connecticut based but love any and every excuse to travel! I can't wait to meet you and hear your story!

We Do Photos Right.
