The following prints I designed while Parker was just an infant. They can be found in my Etsy shop >> My son, Lucas, created the drawing below to be used in the shoot, but I thought it worked best on it’s own. LOVE!!

A Creative Superhero Conquers Year 6

A Creative Superhero Conquers Year 6

While shooting his year 6 birthday photos, I witnessed a creative in the making. The initial concept for this year’s shoot was “the evolution of a creative superhero”, and boy did Lucas have some ideas for props, poses and attitude. As someone who makes a living as a creative (not to mention, married to a […]

Parker: And Then There Were Three

It’s hard to believe that’s she’s been by my side for three years now. It’s even harder to imagine life without little Miss Parker. Thinking back, Parker’s pregnancy was a bit difficult around the 35 week mark. She developed an irregular heartbeat (so thankful that it resolved itself) and I was practically debilitated with pelvic […]

Staying true to my birthday tradition (in which I capture each child with a tailor-made photo shoot), I give you Lucas, at 5 years of age. Since Lucas is my first born, he obviously holds of a very special place in my heart. Weighing in at 9lb 9oz, his boisterous personality must have been lurking […]

What happens when you run out of time to make costumes for the kids? You improvise. This year’s Halloween inspiration came to me as we walked through Gimboree for the first time ever. I couldn’t get over the adult looking duds in toddler sizes. Oh so many mod dresses and hats…I just about died and […]

One of the biggest perks of being a creative director and mom is the ability to blend both roles into one. Planning Parker’s first birthday was an experience I’ll never forget! I love creating keepsakes/memories that my kids will cherish for years to come. With a background in branding and design, I tend to approach […]

As my kids’ birthdays approach, I imagine myself looking back on their childhood about 20 years from now. It’s important for me to create a visual timeline as I tend to speak with imagery rather than words. Since photography is one of my favorite forms of self expression, and my kids are my biggest inspiration, these […]

Parker’s second year marked the beginning of her transformation into a lady. We waited anxiously for her to walk this year. She decided to do so at 18 months, but I could see that she found solace in studying objects at ground level for long periods of time (she has many of my introverted qualities). […]

It’s very rare that any of my photos see the light of day WITHOUT leaving the land of Photoshop. This genius program allows for full control over all photo edits. As soon as I select the strongest photo, I evaluate which areas are in need of improvement. I can alter anything from highlight intensity to […]

Saratoga PLAN: Annual Sheep Shearing

“Mama, when we going to da seep farm?” That’s all I heard in the days leading up to the 4th annual, Shearing Day Open House at the recently conserved Foster Sheep Farm (brought to you by Saratoga PLAN). After today, I’d say my love for farmland blossomed into an obsession. I am so drawn to […]
