Good to meet you

I LOVE LOVE LOVE to chase the sun. I love to play with natural light and finding the in-between, candid moments that tell your love story. My style is often referred to as airy, whimsy, photojournalistic with a touch of classic. I make photographs simply because I love to. I love fruit, yoga, crosswords, long walks (not just on the beach), sports, my little dog Michael Jackson the Furst (yes, that's his real name), and my beautiful husband, Joel. I travel to meet people, indulge in flavors (your girl loves to eat), learn languages (i love connecting with people in their native tongue), see the amazing earth (oh my) and to always say YES to adventure (always). I call NYC & LA home and love to be a nomad - your destination is never to far. For current rates and locations or to schedule a session, please contact me at or fill out the contact form. I would love to be your friend-ographer. 

our story

When I was young I always asked people how they knew their spouse was the one? I received several answers but there was one response that was resonant.

"If you go full speed ahead doing the thing you love, one day you'll look up and that person will be right there with you"

We spent our lives focusing on our passions until one day they brought us both to the small Caribbean Island of Antigua. I was there for 5 days to play one forty minute set and Leila was shooting the wedding. So we ended up getting to spend a lot of time together, and after our first few moments, it was very clear we were destined to meet each other here.

From making each other laugh to reading the same books to Leila being the reason for my first tears of Joy. We knew very quickly we were meant for each other. Since that day we've been chasing the sun, sharing our dreams and enjoying every moment together.

Michael Jackson the Furst

Part terrier, part whatever was in the neighborhood that day. 6lbs of awesome. I was found in the street when my mom was in college and I have never left her side. I also enjoy long walks and I love to eat all of my vegetables, preferably covered in peanut butter.
