A native New Yorker I went to school in Boston and majored in Graphic design with a minor in Photography. Spent part of a summer in Paris studying photography through The Parson's School for the Arts. Once graduating I returned to new York where I worked as a textile designer in the garment industry and then a head stylist for over 12 years.
I continued with my photography on the weekends by assisting my mother with special events where I learned a deeper understanding of working with a range of cameras, including both film & digital photographs.
My attraction to photography gained greater focus after the birth of my first child in 1999, I realized how much I loved being around children and capturing the spontaneous moments in each child's unique personality. In 2004 I left the garment industry to pursue my photography on a more full time basis. I continue to work with my mom but no longer as an assistant but as a colleague. Our close relationship creates a great synergy and translates into the work we do for our clients. Though my passion started with photographing children and families I have expanded my business to include Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, intimate weddings, custom designed photo montages, and many other assorted special occasions.
I currently reside in NYC with my husband Larry and our two children, Zachary & Carli
