At the end of last year I took a trip to Boston and photographed the wedding of one of my best friends. Kurt has been in my life for 24 years and I can honestly say that it has been, and continues to be, one of my most meaningful friendships. Kurt found his perfect match in Ruka. Their love for each other is exemplary and I was delighted to witness how their relationship inspires everyone who knows them, myself included.
I’m always thanking Kurt for staying in my life for so long. I don’t know how I will thank him for adding Ruka to it! It all seems too good to be true!
My words struggle to encapsulate the energy of yesterday’s event. I hope my photos will offer insight to those who were unable to attend or chose not to. I also hope the images continue to be a reminder, to those who were present, of what a meaningful and powerful day it was.
Feeling very proud to be a New Yorker, an American, and a Woman!
Here’s what I witnessed through my lens in NYC.
Keep up the momentum here.

Tomorrow, I will use my legs to march!
Today, I’m using my voice to inspire!
What positive words would you use to describe yourself? I’ve needed to find uplifting words to continue reminding myself of my value. This project, although challenging at times, was a helpful reminder & allowed me to feel empowered.
I invite you to “march with me” by finding positive words that you would use to describe yourself! Share your words with me, if you feel so encouraged.
Love to all!
(Special love to my #1 man – my father – who has always been, and is still, proactive in showing me my worth!)
Check out my instagram page to see portraits of the incredible women, from all around the country, who have inspired me in many different phases of my life. The words here easily describe them as well. #womensmarchtribute

Fun with this new family is featured here today! I love meeting new clients and this family was no exception. The parents welcomed me into their home and we immediately connected and had a wonderfully relaxed and enjoyable session. I also had the pleasure of meeting their son’s loving Nanny. When I was teaching music, and had the opportunity to witness not only the parent child relationship but also the Nanny child relationship, I always thought how lucky that child was to have an extra dose of love and support around him or her – when the Nanny was as wonderful as the one who works with this family.
When I walked into the family’s house with my equipment, this young boy gave me the biggest smile as if he knew me and was excited that I was there! He, and his family, were a joy to photograph! So grateful to have been invited into this loving home.
Thank you for sharing your incredible families with me this holiday season! I have thoroughly enjoyed working with each and every one of you. I also took a photo of this incredible family – my own. Wanted to share them with you in return!
Happy Holidays from my family to yours!
I’m always so grateful to the families who have asked me to photograph them from the beginning of my photographic explorations until now. It’s a special honor to be able to capture their children as they grow over the years. In addition to that honor, it’s always exciting for me to meet a new family and to have an opportunity to witness new relationships. On this day I had the best of both worlds. I’ve been photographing the first set of kids featured here since the oldest was a 1 year old boy! He is so comfortable in front of my camera. I’m sure you’ll see it in his poses! His younger brother makes me work a bit harder, but when I find him, his face melts me. The second pair of siblings I met for the first time on this day. They were adventurous, fun, creative, smart, and shared an obvious bond with their friends! I encourage you to think about bringing another family along with you for a back to back photo shoot! It makes it an extra special experience for everyone – especially the kids! It was an absolute pleasure to photograph these two families on the same day!
I can honestly say that, when I start my day photographing a family in the park, I am 100% content and carry that energy with me for the rest of my day! Getting to have that feeling makes me so grateful to my clients for giving me that gift!
I had a wonderful morning, this weekend,with a family that I photographed when their oldest son was a newborn. We met in a park that I hadn’t been to before and the sun showed itself enough to keep us warm. I so enjoyed reconnecting with the Rangel family and to have the opportunity to get to know their sweet and adorable boys. I also LOVE this season! (I may have mentioned that in other posts!) Playing in the leaves or throwing them in the air, building piles of leaves and kicking them around just never gets old to me! It’s my favorite time of year. Today, we also went digging for treasures. Yes – we found gold!
I love meeting new clients! This family braved a very cold and windy day but we had SO much fun. They had an enormous amount of energy which kept us all running around and helped us to stay warm. They have an obvious, loving bond between them which always makes me realize how lucky I am to witness so much support and love. I was also reminded how much I used to love playing with the fall leaves when I was a kid. Ok maybe I still love that! All in all – I felt very grateful for the opportunity to capture this playful, fun-loving family!
This family…..I can’t say enough about how much I love photographing them. Not only are they beautiful models, but they have become dear friends who make my work feel incredibly joyful! They have given me their support from the beginning of my journey as a photographer. Having that much consistent faith from them has helped me build confidence in my business. I couldn’t be more grateful. As you will see from this session, we have lots of fun together!
