During this crazy time we are living in, a Boston photographer came up with this awesome project called The Front Steps Project. Recognizing how rare of a situation we are in, I’ve decided to join this project and offer to create a keepsake portrait for families in my local community. So how’s it work? 1. […]

My brother Aidan and his girlfriend Peyton were home from college for Christmas break, and I hit them up for a couple’s session at the New York State Museum.

Vincent and I celebrate the holidays with lots of family, food, and cuddling with Minnie, and this past Christmas was no exception. To highlight our holiday time together, I convinced my sweet husband to do a quick photo shoot with us and the dog. It took a lot of coaxing (and a lot more treats!) […]

My husband and I recently drove up to the Adirondacks following the big snowstorm we got at home for a quick overnight trip. We got to Schroon Lake just in time for the sunset, and it was seriously magical… Feast your eyes!

I have known Alex since our elementary school days at St. Teresa of Avila School way back when. When I heard that Alex was engaged to Zack and was looking to do some engagement photos, I was thrilled that they chose me to photograph them. We met at the New York State Museum, with the […]

Simonia reached out to me the day after she won a free portrait session at the Albany Public Library Foundation Gala. I was so excited that she was so excited, and even more excited when I found out that she wanted maternity pictures. She was 7 months pregnant at the time, and her and her […]

Funny story. I have known Molly since she was but a fetus with her twin sister Clara in her mother’s womb. My mother brought me (at 2 months old) to the hospital to meet the twins when they were born. Needless to say, she has been my best friend for nearly 30 years now (yikes, […]

Heather and I met a few months back after she had decided to do a portrait session with me. Her and my mom work together and she was looking for someone to take some photographs. She absolutely killed her at her individual portrait session, and when she reached out to me about getting some photographs […]

Courtney & I worked at the ValleyCats in Troy together for a couple summers, and she was always super friendly and easy to talk to. I was really excited when she reached out to me about getting some photos taken of her and her sister as a Christmas gift for their parents. Knowing full well […]
