I understand how uncomfortable being photographed can be. I want you to feel great about pictures we make together, so I make it fun and easy and comfortable.. I want you to see your beauty and uniqueness... and I want the images we make to be the best representation of you. I want this to be a joyous experience. If I tell corny jokes or cheesy ones, forgive me. I do what ever it takes to have you feel relaxed.
I have been a photographer my entire adult life, starting as a student at Livingston College. I grew up outside Philadelphia and spent hour upon hour at the Philadelphia Art Museum and The Barnes Museum.
I love dogs and cats, all animals really.
I had a chocolate truffle business, Minetta Lane Truffles, until our 150 pound Husky ate a ten pound brick of chocolate. I did not eat chocolate after that for many years, as you can imagine.( it was ugly)
Cooking is a passion.If I am stuck inside with a big snow storm you can find me making a Vat of soup-Chicken, gumbo or something that is new and different.
I love all music, and lately can not stop listening to Lemonade by Beyonce and Regina Spektor, as well as Miles Davis. Jazz and I go way back, but some old David Byrne is always welcome too. Love to dance and can't help it if you see me dancing around with my cameras.
Raging Bull might be my favorite movie Anything Scorcese really.
I cry easily , even at every wedding. I will be behind the camera, with the eyepiece wet, during the ceremony. I guess I am a soft touch.
Family and friends at the kitchen table is my idea of a great time. Add to this a fabulous meal, wine and life is good.
Weddings never get old. each and every wedding is a new and challenging experience, where I get to use all My creative and technical skill, year's of experience and the magic of the wedding, to create a artful collection. The collection that will tell Your story, beautifully.
I hope you won’t be afraid to let yourself go- messy hair , dirty boots or not, you should have a blast at your wedding. If we are having a portrait session I want it to be all about you-not me. so we chat, we laugh, I get to know you. We are all self conscious so my job is to help you feel at ease and make this process simple and fun..
Give yourself this. Time keeps going and you are perfect now, not when you lose 10 lbs, or get your hair done, or any other thing that stops you from having something beautiful forever.Your family will be grateful, and you will have a cherished memento of a time that passes quickly.
This is my gift to you, the gift of you getting to see how the world sees you…beautiful you.
