My love for my own children is what inspired my photography career. When my first baby was born, I was taken away with the immediate and unconditional love that comes with being a new parent. It was like nothing I had ever felt before! It was wonderful, amazing, and kind of scary all at the same time. I wanted to find a way to capture those feelings and freeze those moments in time, so that I could remember them forever. So I set out to do that in the best way I knew how: by taking photographs.
I am now a mom to two amazing children, my son Hugo and my daughter Mila. We live in Randolph, NJ together with my husband Marco. I feel so blessed to be able to stay home with my children while also running a business that I love. I’m so very thankful to all of my clients for allowing me to create beautiful artwork with their little ones and sharing in their joy of motherhood.
One of the things I truly enjoy about my job is getting to meet and know so many amazing families. I'm constantly inspired by your stories. So with that in mind, I wanted to help YOU get to know ME. Here I'm sharing more about me and my family, in no particular order. Enjoy!
I’ve moved from coast to coast. I grew up and lived most of my life in Arizona. My husband and I moved to New Jersey in 2010 for a job relocation. I love it here and wouldn’t have it any other way.
I’ve loved my husband since I was 18. We met my freshman year in college and been together ever since! That is officially more than half of my life by now. I feel so lucky to have had my best friend by my side all these years.
Hablo Español. The town where I grew up in Arizona is predominantly Spanish speaking. Being bilingual is such a gift!
My children are my ultimate heros. I want to live with abandon and have the energy, enthusiasm and imagination that they do!
I have a degree in business. After college, I held various positions in marketing and communications for some pretty amazing companies, but I always knew I wanted to work for myself one day. Running my own photography studio has been a dream come true!
I love dogs. I've been around dogs and been a "dog person" my whole life. Luckily it seems this trait is rubbing off on my kids too!
I don’t have a photo of me and my family together growing up as a child. Moreover, one of my siblings is no longer living, and there is not a photo in existence with all of us together. It’s just one reason why I value photography so much, and is a constant reminder for me that life is short, to live to the fullest, and to appreciate the everyday.
My husband and I love to travel. I still have a long list of places to visit on my bucket list, but if I could pack up and go anywhere tomorrow, it would be Paris. I am a daydreamer, artist, and hopeless romantic at heart!
Quick run-down of a few of my favorite things: dark chocolate, red wine (particularly a good cab), jazz music, the color turquoise, the Fall season, being at the beach, and coconut anything!
