Baby's First Year and Beyond

My Story (Greenwich Family Photographer)


I take pictures to inspire clients to see themselves as beautiful and loved, and to honor and cherish their children.

I take pictures to capture precious moments in life and preserve them for the future. I believe in saving family heirlooms and memories to help build a family’s history, and to provide keepsakes that my clients can look at years later and experience the love and joy all over again. 

I’m motivated by the connection between loved ones, and the inspiration and hope that flows out of new life and new families.

I specialize in maternity and newborn photography because I’m heartened by the vulnerability, honesty, tenderness, and strength in expectant mothers and babies at this pivotal moment in time. It’s an honor to be trusted to participate in this amazing moment, and to capture these qualities that are exposed during my portrait sessions. New life is new inspiration!!

I strive to motivate my clients to celebrate their loved ones, their children, and their beauty through portrait photography. My dream for them is to have the images we create together become true heirlooms to cherish for generations to come.

I want my clients to feel our session together was special, because capturing this precious moment in time is a wonderful choice to make for them and their children. I want my clients to feel I brought out the love and connection they have with one another.

I give my all to every client session. I give kindness, patience, a warm and friendly atmosphere, an open heart and an open mind. And, of course, my vision and talent. I believe doing business with this approach is key to creating moments and images that will truly matter to my clients

My mission is to amplify positivity for my clients. I use my talent to inspire people to remember that children are a gift, they are beautiful, they are our future, and they are the heart of all families. To me there are no exceptions to this, and through my artistic process with my clients I reinforce this idea of universal beauty and the central importance of love.
