My first camera was a Polaroid that I took with me on our family vacation to St. Bart's when I was 10. I was quite proud of my photographs and would show them to anyone who would look at them. My grandmother bought me an album to properly present my Caribbean pictures of sand turtles and my family. And I absolutely loved it.
I was 22 and living in Arizona when I took my first photography class and my life took on new meaning. I won two awards for my self-portrait in Arizona and moved to Boston to study documentary photography at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts.
I graduated in 2004 and moved to NYC where I immediately started photographing people in every aspect of the city. I photographed weddings, boxing events, celebrities, models, family portraits, kids, night clubs, head shots, politicians -- everyone. Between the stunning architecture and fascinating people, the city has been a thrill to photograph. New York has made me a documentary photographer, a wedding photographer, a portrait photographer, an event photographer, a therapist, a director and a friend to everyone who steps in front of my lens. Now with my own wedding photography behind me, and my two growing children, I appreciate timeless pictures, family portraits and albums more than ever.
