I have always loved photography and you will never find me without my camera. And as much as I love taking photos I, even more so, love looking at them. Photos are so interesting to me as they are the most honest portrayal of people. When taken with a candid lens, these images can tell you so much about a person before you even talk to them. And capturing that honesty is what draws me to the art of photography as a profession. I've had a camera in my hand as long as I can remember, but my interest peaked when I got my hands on my dad’s old SLR camera for the first time and completed 3 semesters of photography in high school... I was hooked. I spent the the next years of my life taking photos of everything and studying photographs. But, before I could do anything as an artist, I had other predetermined objectives in my life.
I am proud to say that I was a high caliber junior tennis player since the age of 7 years old and I was destined to go to college on a full scholarship. And, I did, and my next mission was to graduated from Georgia Tech with a Management Degree. I then chose to play professional tennis and travel the world for a year, which gave me the opportunity to take thousands of photos, and that would be the tipping point of my obsession with photography. But, it wasn't in the cards for me just yet to follow my dream, I needed a corporate job to provide me the means to photograph full-time. For 13 years, I pursued a corporate career in Marketing and Sales, but through it all I still spent countless hours improving my skills with the lens, with friendly subjects, and dreaming of becoming a professional photographer.
The last 10 years of my life, I've lived in Atlanta, various NJ towns, and New York City (which is where I met and married the man of my dreams). I was a serious amateur photographer during all that time. Taking on small projects to really hone in on what I was passionate about photographing. I eventually found it, and with the most loving and encouraging support of my husband, I made the commitment and became a professional photographer. I continue to learn about the art of photography everyday through my work with clients, friends and fun photography projects. Today, my home studio is in Wilton Connecticut, a town that I have fallen in love with because of its people and especially all the great friends I have made the past 4 years. It is where we plan to make our home for many years to come and where I hope to capture many cherished moments for the people in the town.
