    Imani and Christian are literally a perfect match! In just the few hours we spent together during their baby shower and their engagement session I noticed sweet gestures that prove they are in love. A touch of Imani’s back, holding of her coat, helping her up a snowy hill, Christian is a gentleman. […]

You take your time searching for a photographer who has the style that you are looking for. You carefully choose the location where your portrait session will take place, a beach or a nature preserve. It takes three hours on line shopping and two hours in stores to find everyone’s perfect outfits. The morning of […]

AHH! I can not tell you how excited I am to have the pleasure of photographing these two beautiful souls. Not only are Danielle and Aricca the sweetest couple to date, they are the coolest! You can not get any cooler than choosing The Buffalo Zoo as your wedding venue! WHAT!? That are literally getting […]

Meet my neighbors!!   Three years ago we moved into a sweet little neighborhood where children ride their bikes in the streets, families walk to the park, and parents relax at outdoor concerts.

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 […]

Families like Anna’s are a true showing of the love that belongs in the center of life!! I can still hear the little giggles while “Pa” made these beautiful little ladies smile while I was photographing them! Anna contacted me two years ago to photograph her family and we have worked together ever since. It […]

We took advantage of the cherry blossoms at the Japanese Gardens a few weekends ago and I am so happy we did! They didn’t last long due to a rainstorm just days later.   Look at those faces! How can you not smile while looking at them! These three have stolen my heart, over and […]
