I am aPhotographer with a Fine Art background, so I go one step beyond taking great photos. I apply custom artwork to each image. Once your portrait is selected, I turn to my fine art background by personally applying numerous hours of artwork by hand, I use my own style and place my own special touches of what I feel is important and will give my images the look I have created to be my artwork. As an expertly trained artist my vision is a timeless image that will stay within your family for generations to come, one that you will be proud to display in your home.
As a Portrait Artist I work very hard to learn all I can about my subjects ...a beautiful portrait is no mistake...it's a job well done, and I am proud of that. I believe when my clients make investments in their families heirlooms they get my undivided attention and a treasure that will never be paralleled, as each custom portrait is printed on long life, heirloom quality paper and sealed with a uv protectant.
Communication is something I do well and my relationships become more like friendships as I watch my families develop and grow.
Some other thoughts -
I am passionate about photography and always will be. As an Artist I wish to see you connect emotionally to the images I capture, as I do myself. I understand what a Mom wants to remember, as I am a Mom as well. Memories of childhood are golden to us through out our lives, and preserving those memories forever is a promise I make to you.
I love my work as an artist... and I am and educated in it - I have 5 years formal education with a mixed degree in Commercial Art, Photography and Design. I spent 10 years as an artist with top NJ Advertising Agencies which has enhanced my style with a commercial touch. I currently work as a Creative Director and the Photographer of many local Magazines.
My sessions are a mix with posed and candid photography. I work with my subjects to pose and direct them creating classic portraits, then I encouraging them with coaching to make spontaneous moments happen.
My most sincere focus is on a job well done. I like to make an appointment to meet with my families and child(ren) where we can discuss their individual portrait needs, show them a gallery of prints and the studio before we work in our photo session. My Consultation Appointment is always free of charge and ensures me I will do the best job possible for you.
I set aside a minimum of 2 hours to work in our custom portrait session. I want to be sure my clients have the best experience possible. I understand what it is like to be a mom, I have little boy myself and I understand : ) Children are un predictable and at times, just not themselves. You may find out after a shoot that they come down with a fever. HAVE NO FEAR...when you invest in a session, working together again or rescheduling is not a problem and no charge!
I feel strongly that images should speak for themselves.
I reside in Morris County with my husband of 12 years and my little boy.
I am truly a people person with strong family values. I think that is what most people voted for when I was awarded Morris County's Favorite Photographer on multiple occastions!
