welcome

 

I’m so glad you’re here! I’m a lifestyle and natural light portrait photographer based out of Westfield, New Jersey, servicing all of Jersey and the Tri-state area. I have over 15 years of experience working with people to create beautiful, meaningful portraits from the heart. It is my absolute favorite thing to do and I’m very excited to help you tell your story.

let’s stay connected

“photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. what you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”

the family experience

My work as an artist is focused around authentic, intimate connections. Whatever kind of love you have...whether you're a couple, a tribe of five, a single mother of three, or are welcoming your first baby...if you love each other deeply, I want to tell your story. I want to capture how your husband looks at you right before leaning in for a kiss, how your son’s arms effortlessly wrap around your neck, or how your hands peacefully glide through your daughter’s hair. My sessions are really just a chance for you to get all close and cuddly and love on each other. Capturing those loving moments and deep connections is the best way to cherish your life's most precious memories forever.

“there is nothing stronger than a broken women who has rebuilt herself.”

the female embodiment experience

I'm incredibly passionate about working with women one-on-one to create empowering portraits. I believe that love should always include self-love, which is equally as important as loving each other, and just as magnificent to capture. This work is very dear to my heart, as my own embodied self-portraits have helped transform me in profound ways. Throughout the years these collaborations have transformed into what I now offer as my female embodiment sessions. They are highly personalized sessions that are meant to celebrate the essence of being a strong female and the glory of surviving your own unique challenges.

“a portrait is not made in the camera but on either side of it.” - edward steichen

 love is love.

My portfolio includes my recent sessions and clients. Please know that if a certain race, gender or family structure isn’t represented it’s simply because I haven’t had the opportunity yet. I do not discriminate against or judge anybody. Love is love. And I would love to capture yours ♥

 
 
 

different strokes…

Since I like my sessions to feel very natural, it’s very important for us to be a good match. My style of photography is unique and I pride myself in offering my clients an intimate, personalized experience. If that’s what you’re looking for, fantastic! But it certainly isn’t everybody’s cup of tea. So if my style, approach, or pricing doesn’t work for you- that’s absolutely fine. There are no hard feelings whatsoever and I’d be happy to refer you to some of the amazing photographers I know who may be a better fit.
