I took this photo the other day and I can’t stop looking at it. I posted it on Instagram and Facebook so you probably saw it already. I have been pulling it up on my phone over and over again. Needless to say, I’m obsessed with it. I love that the photo tells a story as well as stops time for a moment. Read More
Wonder Woman Wednesday
Lady Bosses creating their own path.
Attention my Long Island people, this Wonder Woman is for you! I am super excited to introduce to you one of my very favorite lady bosses! She is talented, creative, smart and beautiful! I have to admit, it’s really intimidating taking photos of another photographer, especially one that is as talented as she is. In fact, she is my go-to photographer for our family portraits (click here and here to see our last two family sessions). I love talking shop and life with her. I’m sure you will love her too once you learn all about her. Read More

Yep it’s my birthday, a BIG birthday for me this year. Deep breath, I’m 40! I can’t believe it. The BIG FOUR O. I’ve got a lot of mixed emotions about this one. I don’t think I feel 40. Heck I don’t know – what is 40 supposed to feel like? Read More
See you in 2016!
School has begun, there’s a chill in the evening air, and Halloween is around the corner. All that can only mean one thing: It’s time to announce the complete details of our annual Fall Mini Sessions! Read More
Bright bold colors, belly laughs and a gentle touch made this family session perfectly them.
I love how this family puts together their wardrobe. Every year their style is fun with little touches that add to the personalities of each person. A cohesive look I love without the matchy-matchy. They are an energetic family who likes to smile, laugh and explore. I think these photos really capture that part of them. And Little Miss found every caterpillar in the park this day. Read More
Autumn is my absolute favorite season. I love the colors, the crisper air, and of course the new clothes! I ‘ve always gotten excited for back-to-school shopping all the way through college. Then it hits you like a wall. Your first year out of school and nothing to shop for when falls comes. After I graduated from college, fall was a sad reminder of the exciting new beginnings of old. However now that I’m a mom and not some poor single college grad, I look forward to shopping for my kids and OK maybe a little something for me too (he he). So with the fall shopping spirit in mind, here are some fun ideas and collections for back to school for the littles in your life.
You don’t have to be a pro with a fancy camera to get fun, memorable back-to-school photos. The whole point is to capture your kids just as they really are right now. Little or big, try and take the time for this every year. Make it a tradition. To help you out, I wanted to give you some tips and ideas on how and what to photograph.Read More
So in our first installment of Spring Cleaning Your Photos, we established a system for getting all of your pics from your various digital devices nicely organized onto one central computer.

At the end of one year and the beginning of a new year, I, like other people, look back at the past and toward the future. I look at my successes and my failures, and the goals I set for myself. What did I accomplish? What did I not accomplish? How did I accomplish those things I thought would never happen?Read More
