About Me

Untitled photo

I love the thought that photos capture a moment in time. With my own child growing up so fast i’m almost frantic in trying to stop the time a bit. I love capturing memories for my family...memories that my daughter will share with her children.

I love documenting things as they really are at that moment. If i see a photo where some kids are happy and smiling while two are acting crazy or one is even crying, it still brings a smile to my face. A smile just as big as the one of them all together being perfectly posed angels. Because each image is real. And the best photos are the real photos. 

I come from a Design background. I’ve worked in the NYC advertising biz for close to 20 years, working closely with some of the most talented and creative photographers. After moving to beautiful central Connecticut from New York, I am totally renewed and inspired by the gorgeous parks, farms, and greenery (or is it the fresh air?) and I'm especially inspired by the some of the nicest, kindest people who’ve welcomed me to our new state.

My goal as a busy mom myself is to make capturing your family’s bond and love ridiculously easy. It’ll start with a quick chat via email, text, or by phone...whichever is your preference. Our shoot will be short, sweet, and fun. Then, delivery of only the best shots in an easy to download gallery...or order some lovely prints or even create a new family heirloom in the form of a book. Let’s make it easy together!

"I can’t thank you enough for the photo session you recently completed for my family. You made everything so stress-free for all of us – from the flexibility with logistics to offering suggestions on locations and wardrobe. It couldn’t have been easier. I felt like you really listened to what I was trying to achieve with group family and individual portraits – something casual that really captured the spirit of our family. We are delighted! Not only did you provide many options, but how you accomplished it all in such a short amount of time was nothing short of a miracle!! You even found a way to make my crabby son smile! Even my husband was blown away with the results. With these already sent off to friends and family, we are already looking forward to our next session this fall!"

Thanks again, Ileen
