There is no doubt in my mind that I am doing what I am supposed to be doing.¬† Being able to meet new families, like Laura and her family, just makes me happy. Laura, Eric and their 3 beautiful children spent time in front of my camera at Chestnut Ridge before the weather turned! While […]

I just cant with how adorable the Reilly’s are! They continue to take my breath away each and every time I photograph them. I just want to scream “just stop growing up!” Kristen and I have a long standing relationship with photographs! I began photographing their family when their oldest was only 9 months old! […]

Senior portraits are one of my favorite sessions to do! It’s such a fun time in a teenagers life and I truly enjoy documenting that moment! Sami came to me a few years after I photographed her older sister Ashley’s senior portraits! We met at Botanical Gardens in Lackawanna. While strolling through the park we […]

Natalie and George were married in Playa del Carmen, right on the Gulf of Mexico near Cancun. The days were filled with walks to the beach, […]

I met Allie many, many years ago through a mutual friend. Her easy going, fun loving personality was infectious back then and even more so now! Naturally, when she asked to me photograph her second pregnancy I said yes! We met at Stigelmeier Park in Cheektowaga on a chilly Sunday morning. Allie, Len, CeCe (their […]
