Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever...it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.
My first camera was a plastic Kodak...a gift from my parents when I was about five years old. I have loved being behind the camera ever since. In more recent years I allowed my passion for photography to take flight. After careers in both the corporate and not-for-profit worlds, I returned to school to pursue a degree in photography from which I graduated summa cum laude. I have been privileged to see my work hang in local galleries and colleges here in New Jersey.
What do I do best? I love capturing life's little moments...the look on parents' faces as they hold their children, the excitement in a child as he or she tries something new, the animation in someone as they laugh with a friend, the beautiful way that time and life ages us as seen in the face of an older person. I accomplish this in several ways. One is candid event photography, particularly events that bring two or more generations together, where almost anything can (and often does) happen. The other is location portraiture in one's home, place of business, or outdoors which allows for more relaxed and open time together.
The lives we lead and the world in which we live provide endless opportunities for me to capture life, one picture at a time! Call or e-mail me to see if I might help you to capture that special person or event!
