How It All Began

It all began with one class in high school, photography, and I was hooked.  I had been bitten by the photography bug!!  My first camera was one my father used when he was a photographer for a local paper when he was young.  As a gift, my parents gave me a Canon AE-1 when they saw how "into" photography I was.  Everywhere I went my camera was in tow and I was constantly shooting.  While in high school I was the photographer for the school newspaper and yearbook.

I was constantly in the darkroom and occassionally, skipped a class or two to be there.  I loved expressing my thoughts and feelings through the camera and using my creativity to create some pretty awesome pictures.  Whatever it took to get the perfect shot I did it.  I even hung out my bedroom window to snap a picture of robin's eggs that were nestled nicely in a hemlock.  People recognized me from the photos I took and because I was always walking around with my camera. I won several contests during my high school career and was recognized by the school's Board of Education for a contest I had placed 2nd in that was sponsored by the state of Connecticut.  Photography was my outlet; my way to express myself and how I felt.

When my son was born, of course the camera was out and I was snapping away, crawling along the floor with him and doing all those crazy things a mom does to make her child giggle and smile.  The same held true when my daughter was born; camera armed and ready and doing all sorts of goofy things for that special shot. I will go to any length to get that perfect smile.

Photography is all about telling a story, capturing that "special moment" and making it last forever. I love how people, especially children, open up to me and show their true personalities.  That's what is important to me, capturing that special moment, telling a story with my camera of that special bond between siblings, a mother and her child, mom, dad and their child/children or just the one of everyone having a good time.

To keep my skills sharp I am currently taking a course at the New York Institute of Photography.  Always looking to build upon what skills I already have. I am also a member of the HUB Camera Club in Mountain Lakes.

Allow me to capture your special moment, you won't be disappointed.
