Prior to becoming a professional photographer and mother, I was a lawyer in New York City. My life and career have taken me interesting places, and I feel strongly that all of life, but particularly rapidly growing children and every woman’s motherhood journey, are worth documenting in a beautiful way.

I have mentored with leading portrait photographers, invested countless hours in education to master technical skills and ensure consistent creative growth, and built a boutique portrait experience that my clients rave about.

I am skilled at and enjoy using natural light, on camera flash and studio lighting equipment to create unique, timeless artwork you and your family will treasure for generations.

I hope my vision and art resonate with you, and I look forward to discussing your custom portrait session soon.



My style is timeless, emotional, and focused on quality over quantity. Your family will be captured with both technical competence and artistic vision. 

I see the beauty in your babies like you do and I promise to create portraits of your loved ones that become more valuable with each passing year.


I have mentored with many of the country’s leading newborn and family portrait photographers, and ensure consistent creative growth through targeted photography education. I understand motherhood; I am a mother to one rambunctious three year old boy and a 6 month old baby girl. 


All my portrait clients receive the same professionalism and exceptional work product I gave my clients as a corporate attorney in Manhattan. I use professional-grade camera equipment and have backup gear at every session. I regularly invest in continuing education, including newborn safety.  


You and your children need gorgeous images of your lives together.
