About Me

My photo
As a a painting artist I know what makes a picture work. I compose my photos much like my paintings. They are relaxed yet romantic. I am a still life artist but I love to photograph people in timeless settings.

Why have a Free engagement session for Bride and Grooms to be?

     As a wedding photographer in south Jersey, I offer a free Engagement session with every wedding package .  This is so important for many reasons.  For the photographer it gives me a chance to see your style, work with you, and and get to know you as a couple.  I can only truly be prepared for your wedding after meeting in person for a photo shoot.   It also serves as a practice on being comfortable in photos and being directed by a photographer in the wedding portraits.   It is not always easy to connect with each other while a camera is clicking away.  That is why a practice can be so helpful.  Your wedding pictures should be real and reflect your love for each other through relaxed interactions.  An engagement session like this one can help achieve that.

My new Canon 5d markii

   After adding Canon's latest version of their full frame camera, the 5d mark ii, to my gear,  I had to try it out.   I used my go to models, my boys, Adler and Aven.   I am not just a photographer but I am also a mom who cant get enough pictures of my own. 
   I ventured out side with camera in hand and a small soft box on my flash and snapped as fast as I could.
There is something about this camera that is different than the first 5D.  It Just does what you want it to do every time.  I don't think it can take a bad picture.   I can't wait to do more.

Children's sessions in New Jersey and surrounding areas start at $225.00

Little Louis

   These are my new chairs inspired by french grain sacks on French Louis style frames.  Reproduction antiques are the best because they are so much less than the original and you can be free to use them and live on them.  Find these for sale on my Ebay store.  Cart and Pallet  $ 459.00 a pair

Bohemian love

    This was a care free couple we photograph in the quaint historic town of Haddonfield New Jersey.  With camera in hand we walk along the streets and explored the sights.  Two small dogs crossed our path and made for a charming picture.  At the end of the shoot we made our way to the roof top of their apartment.  There written on the wall  " your a princess,  I'm a pirate,  let sail the sea together.."  My lyrical partner( my  husband ) saw this and came up with the idea for this shot.   I love it because it was perfect for this bohemian couple.

Love working with other Photographers

     Last week I had the privilege of working with a great Photographer.   Stephanie Sherwood of Sherwood photography.  She has a strong sense of her self and style and makes everything look fun.  Shooting as a second shooter I got to take on her style of high energy photojournalism.  With my 135mm lens in had I stood on the side like a sniper waiting to capture that secret moment of emotion.
