Thanks so much for taking time to learn a little bit more about me:)
I guess you could say I live my live similar to “la vie en rose”, or looking at the world through rose colored glasses. My camera is an extension of my heart and allows me to convey through art, the beautiful world I see everyday.
I have a degree from Monmouth University in Photography and Graphic Design, as well as being on my way towards my MFA in Photography at Academy of Art University, mainly because someday I would love to teach. I love learning my craft so much, that I have also traveled the world to attend several workshops, as well as participating in the European Wedding Congress.
In my last 7 Years of business, I am grateful to say I have been published in many amazing venues. Some of them include Martha Stewarts Wedding Blog, Style Me Pretty, NJ Bride, Manhattan Bride, Behind The Shutter, Asbury Park Press, New York Times, Wedding Chicks, WellWed, Utterly Engaged. I am also honored to be one of the few chosen to be a Grace Ormond Platinum Vendor as well as a preferred vendor at Weddings of Distinction.
I am blessed to say I love this profession. Photography is always new and exciting. When I am not taking pictures, I am most likely dancing around my kitchen making dinner, hanging with my wonderful husband and woofers (my 4 dogs), or traveling.
The following are some silly facts about me:)
I am a girl who likes to observe…simple and low key. I go with the flow and love to laugh and smile.
1~ I heart wine -almost as much as coffee
2~ I’m a mac…and a Nikon!
3~ I am a sucker for love stories- I swoon for them.
4~ J’adore Paris
5~ I love all things vintage! Old homes, cameras, jewlery, clothes- they each have so much character. Thinking about their story makes me smile.
6~ I am obsessed with my Husky Spencer, so much so, I even went dog sledding while in Quebec. Not as easy as you might think:)
7~ I love cooking for family and friends. If you visit, I will try to feed you! Oh yeah, dancing around the kitchen while cooking is a must. I always ask my mom if she’s sure we are Irish…I mean really, you don’t always think of Ireland when you you think of food. No offense to my peeps.
8~ I heart movie soundtracks. Why movie soundtracks? Well, I can’t listen to music with lyrics while working because I get distracted by the story. I wish I was kidding.
9~ I had a squirrel fall on my head while riding horseback for the first time…its actually a pretty funny story. A witness commented that he thought more people have been hit by lightning then by squirrels. Its nice to feel special:)
10~ My family rocks!!! We love animals (especially dogs) we are tall , friendly, and best of all- we would do anything for each other.
