When you buy the ‘Holy Grail’ of Nikon lenses, you take it out for a test run. You kindly ask your boyfriend to click the camera shutter after you set up the camera settings for him, and then pose yourself. Below are basically the images that you get.  When people ask me why I just LOVE LOVE […]

Okay, I will preface this blog post by saying the following: I have the most amazing boyfriend on this planet. He may occasionally leave his socks on the floor all over my apartment, and forget to throw out the trash unless I leave the bag by the front door. But the truth is, he is just AWESOME. […]

I remember my first few photo sessions like they were yesterday. I was excited, but at the same time terrified. I put on a brave face even though I felt like I had a million butterflies in my stomach. I made some mistakes in those first few sessions – mistakes that taught me so much […]

It’s not really a perfect picture. Some might even say it’s sort of unattractive. It was taken with an old iPhone. The exposure is off. It’s super grainy. It’s not entirely sharp. And, let’s face it, my boyfriend and I  look kindda orange because of all of the ugly tungsten lights in the restaurant we were sitting […]

It all started with an entry-level camera body. And two small lenses. They came in a kit, which I bought on sale at a local NYC Best Buy store. It was nothing fancy. But it was all I needed to learn the ins and outs of a DSLR camera. To learn how to shoot in ‘Manual’ […]

I love lists. I love them almost as much as I love crossing “completed tasks” off of those lists. In fact, sometimes I write things on my to-do list that I’ve already done *just* so I can cross them off my list! I hope I’m not alone in this! Luckily, I have my STARTplanner, which fuels (and fully supports!) […]

At the end of last year, I sat across a table from one of my close NYC friends. We were chatting about my photography business and what I was busy working on. I told her all about the shooting, editing and authentic posing courses I was doing at the time. I also told her that I […]

It’s my birthday today! I don’t normally celebrate my birthday anymore, if I’m honest. But I had a nice, quiet day, got some flowers at work as a gift from my amazing boyfriend Justin, and received a lot of wonderful messages throughout the day! I’m so grateful for all of the love and the good […]

About a year ago, I realized I had a dream. I realized that I wanted to use my passion for photography to tell love stories and to breathe life into moments that quickly begin to fade. Celebrating, enriching, and preserving love through photography became the purpose that guides me. Because, the truth is, if I’m […]

As our nights become longer and we’re forced to break out our thicker sweaters, I can’t help but reminisce about the fun days I enjoyed this past summer. Don’t get me wrong, I love fall. But this summer was so incredible, that I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t feeling nostalgic about it coming […]
